To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I already have the dewalt random orbit 18v sander, which i thought was brilliant apart from it didn't get corners nor is it much good on anything intricate. So i decided to buy this ¼ sheet sander as i use the rolls of abrasive. On the plus sides very easy to use, gets in corners, excellent battery usage (approx 10 mins per ah), easy to fit paper, very comfortable. The only mark against it is that the dust extraction into the dust bag is not as good as the random orbit sander. Also I bought mine from USA to save about 50% against the UK model so i could not register the guarantee in the uk. I don't anticipate this being a problem as the quality is great so i expect it to last. I use it daily without any problems. I would definitely recommend it. Buy from USA, save some money. 18v batteries are the same as the USA 20v. Just different labels.
It’s a great sander, good quality as you come to expect from DeWalt. It’s a question I see asked a lot, this is the US (20v) model. Yes it is compatible with UK 18v XR batteries. No there are no import fees or taxes, what you see if what you pay.
