WOOD magazine review

Excellent dust collection, but high vibration

Review Summary

This sander performed below average in most of the important criteria compared to 11 other sanders. Although it collected dust well with its easy-to-dump plastic canister, the 27673 vibrated significantly, and wanted to jump around rather than sand smoothly. It also left scratch marks after sanding to 220 grit on oak and pine that needed 320 grit to tame.
