When its best feature is an easy-opening zippered dust bag, you know a sander has issues. Unfortunately, the SV13YA leaves scratches that need 320-grit discs to remove.…
(Comparable sanders could do the job in less time and use fewer discs.) It vibrated more than any other sander out of 12 we tested, and rocked and veered unless we gripped it tightly. Its thin, narrow dust-collection port collected less dust with a vacuum than with the bag, and its recessed on/off switch and speed control proved difficult to operate.
