Description

The Rockwell RK4247K 5-Inch Random Orbit Sander stands above other sanders because it doesn't just dampen vibration, it cancels it out. The active vibration canceling technology of the RK4247K reduces vibration by 50 percent making this Random Orbit Sander extremely comfortable and safe to use. The patented design is based on two counter-acting pads that move in opposite directions - directing the vibration into sanding instead of your hand. The RK4247K Random Orbit Sander also has an innovative dust collection system that separates dust particles from the air and traps them inside the dust collection box. This dust collection box never clogs, loses suction, or wears out like a cloth bag.

Expensive Sander

Review Summary

Good sander but not worth a hundred bucks! It does reduce vibration with the two-disk system, but that also means you have to order the sanding disks and they are not cheap either. As usual, Rockwell's documentation is very poor. The sander is well made, but I can almost get two DeWalts for the same price and use regular disks.
