Porter-Cable 20V Max Random Orbit Sander

Porter-Cable 20V Max Random Orbit Sander PCCW205B
Porter-Cable has recently announced the launch of a new addition to their line of 20V Max cordless solutions: the Porter-Cable 20V Max Random Orbit Sander.  The 20V Max system offers a range of affordably priced cordless tools, which Porter-Cable aims toward the Prosumer/Entry-Level Pro demographic. This new 5″ cordless random orbital sander will retail for $59.99 for the bare tool and will be available this fall.

5″ Of Random Orbital Cordlessness

The Porter-Cable 20V Max Random Orbit Sander will push 12,000 orbits per minute, helping users to complete their sanding work quickly and efficiently.  It also includes a dust removal system like you’d expect. It can either utilize the included dust collection bag or it can connect to a vacuum. The new sander’s multi-port adapter can connect to vacuum hoses of different diameters.

The Porter-Cable Cordless Random Orbit Sander has a low profile design, making it easier to control. It was also designed for low vibration output and comes with a 3-Year Limited Warranty, One-Year Service, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Final Thoughts

While the Porter-Cable tools of today certainly aren’t the Porter-Cable tools of old, it is good to see the cordless line expanding. For $56.44, we don’t expect to see the same kind of performance or fit and finish you get from Festool, but we do expect it to get the job done for a lot less money.

As it stands, this isn’t the first cordless sander on the market. But it is one of the cheapest options available. That makes it a pretty attractive option for the DIYer and Prosumer as well as the occasional user on the Pro side if you’re already on the battery platform.
