The DWE6423 5 in. Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander Kit with hook & loop pad has a 3 Amp motor that delivers between 8,000 to 12,000 OPM. The separate counterweight reduces vibration and along with the rubber overmold grip provides comfortable sanding. A shorter design allows users to get closer to the work surface and the one-handed locking dust bag attaches securely to the sander to aid in dust collection or the user can attach the sander directly to the DWV010 or DWV012 dust collectors.
  • 3.0 Amp motor spins the pad at 8,000 - 12,000 OPM
  • Shorter height allows the user to get as close as possible to work piece for sanding and more control
  • Rubber over-mold in all critical areas of the sander
  • Separate counterweight design reduces vibration, increases control and leads to a better finish
  • Improved dust-sealed switch to protect against dust ingestion for longer switch life
  • Improved dust collection and interfacing with vacuum locking system
  • Dust bag has patented one-hand locking mechanism
  • To attach dust port to other vacuum systems with 1-1/4 in. hoses, use DWV9000 Universal Quick Connector

Great product
I am a little disappointed as I did not know this unit needed a belt and that the belt would need to be replaced from time to time. and also to hook up to a vac you need an adapter if I knew I needed adapter to hook up to a vac I would have bought one when I got the unit but now I will have to go to the store again and see if it is available if not I will have to order it.I have other dewalt products and have had no problem with them..So hopefully this will do as well

I've been doing my projects oldschool (by hand but I'm getting too old for that. My wife and kids decided to get me this DWE6423 Orbit Sander to make my life easier. I'm a disabled vet so I do take my time doing projects. I started using this tool and boy, it was awesome. I completed all the sanding work for the dining table I did in 4 hours(took breaks when needed). I know a lot of people can do it faster but for me, that was a record. I love my dewalt sander. I'll be buying more tools soon. I'm looking into the cordless tools now. I wish I took pictures but maybe next time.

Tough, efficient, versatile!
I have spent days hand sanding a large home project and purchased this for efficiency and based on other reviews. It has been absolutely amazing so far. The variable speed aspect is perfect for the fine detail work I require and the easy take on take off hook and loop systems works perfectly. The dust pickup works well and I look forward to years of usage.

Excellent Sander!
With long term house remodeling plans, I quickly realized the need for a random orbital sander. I purchased the DeWalt DWE6423 kit on sale at my local Home Depot. Since that time I have regularly used the sander and found it to be very dependable. The speed control dial makes it easy to adjust the RPM of the sander depending on the material being sanded and the 5" hook and loop pad makes it simple to quickly change the sanding discs. The sander is lightweight, and the shape of the top along with the rubber covering, make it comfortable for your hand when sanding for long periods. Although I was skeptical at first of the attached dust collection bag, it does work surprisingly well. This sander is a great value and I definitely recommend it.

Purchased the DeWalt finishing sander several years ago and wanted the orbital sander to take advantage of the variable speed option. Plugged it in immediately to used with a wood working project. It didn’t disappoint!

Bought this for a floor refinishing project, took stain and polyurethane down to bare wood with ease. Left a perfect finish. Keep up the great work Dewalt!

If I want to attach this to a small Shop Vac hose, what adapters do I need? And if I want to attach it to a normal large Shop Vac hose, which ones do I need?
Brithedark on Nov 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To connect to an external vacuum, you may need a reducer, but the answer depends on the diameter of the hose that you are connecting to. The same scenario applies to a larger vacuum.
