  • If you sand wood, you need this outstanding tool!

    Aug 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent durability, great performance, and innovative features.
    Cons: None that I've discovered

    Summary: If you haven't had an opportunity to add a Random Orbital Sander (ROS) to your arsenal of tools, I suggest you look into it, for this is truly a labor saving piece of power equipment. For most any kind of sanding project in the home or shop, the ROS can ... read more

  • Sit Down Porter Cable, Ridgid is Here.

    Jan 26, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very comfortable.
    Easy to use.
    Extra long cord with that lights up!
    It's orange
    Cons: Air vents blow in my eyes.  Ouch

    Summary: Boom Baby!Ok, so my last review on a random orbital sander was for the Porter Cable.  It was decent, but when I upgraded to the Ridgid, I was amazed at just how much better this sander is.  Does that mean I'm missing out on even ... read more

  • This is a Great sander !

    Oct 19, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: low vibration, Quiet and leaves a swirl free finish. 12 ft power cord
    Cons: sanding pad donít last long, power switch

    Summary: Here is a update on this sander. After using it for 4-5 months. I was mistaken when I said that this sander was made by metabo. It is made in China as the other reviewer stated. I was told it that it was made by metabo by the salesman who sold it to ... read more

    Pros: Stock removal

    Minimal swirl marks
       
    Cons: Unusual on/off swith

    Somewhat loud 

    Summary: I just returned a DeWalt for this item. It was defective within the first week. I had a Rigid circular that I loved and I decided to go back to this brand for this tool. It is a strong performer, as swirl marks are minimal, stock removal ... read more

  • four sanders same problem

    Oct 19, 2009 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: Worked well before they failed
    Cons: All four sanders have the same problem

    Summary: Between my son and I we have four of these Rigid R2600 random orbit sanders. All four of them have failed in the same manner, they are no longer able to sand at high speed just the lowest speed. I wrote to Rigid they told me to use my warranty. Since ... read more

  • Pad Brake goes out.

    May 1, 2009 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Agressive, Powerful, Long cord. SHop vac dust port.
    Cons: Pad Brake goes out. Power switch is easily bumped when set down on side.

    Summary: I own 3 of these because we do lots of sanding in our shop.  2 problems...  One is that the pad brake goes out after veru few hours of use which causes the pad to run up in rotation speed when lifted off the work. Otherwise , I love the power ... read more

  • Solid work horse at a very reasonable price.

    Rated Show
    Pros: Solid workhorse. Good motor, removes material fast, finish is nice.
    Cons: In some orientations, it is easy to accidently bump the power switch off.

    Summary: I am a hobby woodworker, and cabinet maker. There are some small nitpicks I could say about the sander, but for the price, it really would be nitpicking. In my opinion, this sander is an 8/10. I think to get those last 2 points, you need to spend 4x the ... read more

  • Don't buy this sander!

    Sep 1, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great paperweight
    Cons: Leaves grind marks in the wood.

    Summary: I had a Dewalt and it burnt out, so I bought this one. When you're sanding and lift the sander off of the work it stops orbiting and starts rotating like a grinder. Then when you put it back down it leaves a circular grind mark in the wood. I went ... read more

  • Ridgid RS2500 poorly designed

    Oct 12, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Has a good cord and a good case
    Cons: this sander constantly breaks and replacement parts are on 4-5 week back order.

    Summary: I have not been able to run this tool long enough to need to change the sand paper. The plastic parts that attach the vibrator bed to the motor unit, PN-590930001, have broken twice. When they break the unit is very difficult to control and after two ... read more

  • Good Buy

    Jul 5, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good feel when using, low vibration. Cord and dust collection a plus.
    Cons: Can't really speak bad of the tool, good purchase.

    Summary: I purchased the R2600 about a year ago from Home Depot. While doing some research on what brand of sander to purchase it became fairly evident that while most may work fairly well they just don't hold up over time. Rigid is know for reliability, among ... read more

  • Nice Chinese Sander

    Mar 3, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: rubber cord
    Cons: a bit loud, made in China, parts support limited (sold exclusively by home depot)

    Summary: Unfortunately, one of the previous reviewers was wrong about this sander. The R2600 model is made in China by Ryobi's parent company. The R2610 6" model is made by Metabo in Germany and marketed by Ryobi's parent company. The R2600 is a good sander, but ... read more
