Powerful 1/4 Sheet Sander

Review Summary

This inexpensive powerful little 1/4 sheet hand sander is better than the Porter Cable Model 380 1/4 Sheet Hande Sander because it has a higher amp motor 2.4 amp verses 2.0 and 14,00 orbits per minute verses 13,500 orbits per minute. Although both sander have dust collection the dust collectot on this model is ridgid, verses the soft canvas for the 380 model. I own both and they both sanders perform well and are inexpensively to perform all sorts of sanding tasks.
If given the choice to choose between both sanders I would choose this model.
