Product Review

The BO5031/2 Makita Random Orbital Sander mode has been developed and commercialized as the successor models of Bo5010 and Bo5012 and showcases an electronic speed control and heavy-duty applications. It has the same ergonomic-designed rubberized palm for soft grip as the Bo4555 series models.

Makita’s BO5031/2 Random Orbit Sander delivers smooth and fast action performance with better grip and complete control. The BO5031/2 model is ideal for carpenters, hard-working contractors, or someone who is dealing with woodworking projects that require a best-in-shop random orbit sander. Although we wouldn’t class this as a palm sander, it does come with a grip in addition to the main handle, making it very easy to maneuver.

Model BO5031/2 also comes in the abrasive disc and dust collecting bag. It is perfect to use in a wide range of sanding job applications. This power tool is just another best quality product of the Makita brand – we believe so strongly in this statement that we recently added it to our list as the best orbital sander for home DIY projects. Its commitment and high technology encompass innovative and well-designed random orbital sanders.
