Product Features & specs :

Dewalt DWE6423K 5 in. Variable Speed Random Orbital Sander with H&L Pad and Bag

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

Awesome Little Sander
I found this sander to be affordable, have plenty of power, leave no markings, and have pretty descent dust collection. This checked off all the boxes i was looking for in a sander. Very happy with my purchase.

I Have the companion Pad Sander, but wanted to try the hook and loop pads. Small projects, so far, but really like the variable speed. 60 grit to 180 grit pads work very well. Excellent choice!

Great sander!
Does a better job than a certain competitors brand, with less vibration than the competitors sander. That said, I think the vibration problem could still be reduced even more. I have owned this for about 2 wks. now and I find the dust bag already has a hole/worn spot right up next to the knurled plastic that attaches to the sander. I can't imagine why a hole would be there unless its due to the spring in the dust bag wearing a hole thru due to vibration.

Good but could improve
I’m one who tries to always keep tools organized - whether at home or work. The plastic case (previous models), and VAC COMPATIBILITY would be pluses in my opinion.

Excellent sander
I just got this new for home projects and love it. It is very quiet and comfortable to use. The vacuum option works well, the unit feels sturdy and well built. I love the power cord feels like you can pull a car with it. I used in different speeds and love that option if you can get this one instead of the single speed spend the money. I own many dewalt tools and like this one I am glad I purchased and is now part of the family.

Noisy Bearing?
The first time I turned it on it sounds like a noisy bearing, unless that's normal for this orbital sander. I've always had good luck with other Dewalt products in the past so I gave it a few stars for that. And it does do it's job as it should. Just leary about the whining bearing, especially when you put slight pressure on the forward edge of the pad. It would be 5-stars if I had the peace of mind of knowing it's ok.

Great little sander!
I've had this sander for over a year now and it has served me well! It is powerful and the adjustable speed is a nice feature for more delicate projects. The dust collection is pretty standard. I wish it came with an adapter that fit standard size shop vac hoses. Overall awesome little product!

One sander for it all.
I received this sander last year as a gift. It’s the only sander I have needed. I’ve refinished multiple prices of furniture and it has done a fantastic job. The variable speeds have come in handy when trying to remove old finishes. I’ve even lent this to my mother-in-law and she had no problem operating it. The only thing I wish was that the adapter to a standard shop vacuum was only one piece not 2. All in all it’s a great sander and I don’t know what more I could ask.

I want to attach my Dewalt DWE6423K to my shop vac. The shop vac hose is 1.5" ID. Which adapter do I need?
Tracy on Sep 26, 2016
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.
What is the difference in this model and the 59.00 model?
