"Great little sander. I have had branded sanders in the past but I have to say save your money. This little sander did everything that I expected with very little effort. I've rated reliability as excellent but obviously only used it one but that was continuously for six hours without a hiccup. The backup guarantee gives you peace of mind"
"I have bought a few different types of sanders at the cheaper end of the market, so I thought I would try this - a bit more expensive. It is really good, the vibration is very low and yet it sand perfectly. Recommended"
"Having worn out 2 mouse sanders manufactured by a famous brand in the last two months, I was hoping for something that would last. First impressions are good, excellent results from a sturdy feeling sander, which vibrates far less than my previous ones. The carry bag is a nice accessory, and the replacement sheets are easy to fit. Happy with purchase and customer service at my local Screwfix. All good, long may it last..."
"This product is well up to the expected standard that is associated with this manufacturer. It is a light machine that can be used for long periods with no arm or hand strain caused. The bag it comes in is a little too tight a fit for all that it holds but works. Like all sanders of this type fitting the abrasive paper is a little fiddly but as a plus you can fix either velcro style papers or pieces cut from a sheet or roll."
"Small, smart but powerful. Easy to control. You can use ordinary sand paper in roll or ready made ones. Also have got special plate to make holes in ordinary paper. Very long lead so no need to many extensions."
"I have used this sander in work as well as the other big brand equivalent, the erbauer out preformes the the others and is therefore better value. One slight issue for some might be that the top is bigger and having bigger hands is an advantage when in use. It also comes in a very convenient bag. I have therefore bought the erbauer model for my own use at home."
"Used the sander on some old sash windows. Nice and powerful, and helped smooth off the surface area well. Can buy different grains of sand paper and like the fact that it is easy to change them with a velcro fasten. Quite loud when operating but easy to handle and use."
"I am one of the silent majority that reads the reviews but never usually writes one. Well that changed when I used this sander. Originally bought the larger version but realised that it was too bulky and heavy. So returned that unit and swapped for this. It makes such light work of the sanding that the jobs I needed to do were done in no time. It does not vibrate too much, it's not that noisy and it's light and controllable. Really happy with my purchase."
"The sander performed well when using on an old blanket box. I looked at sander after use and could see that the rubber plate on which the sandpaper fits was reduced at one side as I had used it to sand crevices. I thought no problem, I will get a replacement. Unfortunately no replacements are provided by screwfix, or anywhere else. So buyer beware sander is fine but no replacements available. This is one of screwfix's own brands, they need to step up and sort this serious problem out. Is this ethical? If spares available I would not hesitate in giving 5 stars."
"how can you sell a sander and not sell hook and loop paper for it? After using a roll of grit paper and trimming down you soon find the clamps are not good enough to grip the paper, I was forever replacing the paper. The sander lasted a day and then it gave up, even when it was working and connected to a vac the dust extraction fair to poor. It was was returned and now have the makita and it is superb"
"As a experienced carpenter working on a wide multitude of projects this sander does have great advantages. Its price tag for one, and not to be under rated long power chord, and good performance despite a lot of vibration. My dissatisfaction is due to the following reasons;
I have had this sander for just under 2 years and now the rotating mechanism has chewed through the plastic fittings of the baseplate and has destroyed the sander.
Secondly, Erbauer have practically no facility for replacing spare parts so this means a new sander within two years.
Thirdly they have dropped the plastic hard-case and now sell it with a canvas bag, not ideal for looking after your gear.
Fourthly when compared to other palm sanders, for a little more money you can pick up a Makita sander widely found to have great reviews, (don't take my work for it, have a look# with a 3 year warranty with a registration within a number of days of purchase.
All in all don't be sucked in by the price tag, invest a little more and register for an extensively longer warranty # a must for the tradesman) buy cheap and pay twice, or invest wisely."
