This Bosch orbital sander is a pleasure to use. It has very good ergonomic design. Vibration seems minimal, and operation is very smooth. You hardly need to exert pressure downwards. In fact, too much pressure and it will bog down. It is designed to work best while lightly gliding over the surface....

I bought this Bosch primarily because it can be connected to a dust collector. (As it turns out, its built-in dust collector is good but not great.) The thing is quieter than the Brand X it replaces, has much lower vibration and much, much better on-board dust collection. As expected, this isn't the...

ready to use out of the box. Replacing another one.

The sander is comfortable to operate without causing vibration fatigue in the wrist. The tool gives a nice finish without swirls if you use the proper grit sanding paper. I have also used this sander to buff a wooden mirror frame made of cherry hardwood and the tool produced a nice smooth finish. I...

I bought this to replace my skill palm sander and what a difference! At first I didn't think it was doing anything because there was so little sawdust, until I realized the dust collector was working so well. This thing is awesome and well worth the money, a job that would have taken over an hour w...

The sander works well, is much quieter than the Porter Cable RO sander it replaced. The dust collector is a bit tricky to remove and the cover is awkward to take off but it does collect the majority of the sanding dust very well. Seems to do a great job in sanding of an Oak board with little or no s...

Had to Finally replace my old Porter Cable orbital sander. Researched and found the Bosch was rated well. Got it and what a treat. I did some poly sanding initially and the filter worked exceptionally, better than I even envisioned, it began smoking as the poly fibers got hot. This filter grabbed a...

I did my research online and decided on this Bosch. Very happy with it, collects the dust nicely and gives excellent results. Highly recommend this sander.

Affordable and excellent finishing! Only grip is the dust collector is tricky to put back on.

Love this sander. Great in small spaces. It does an excellent job and doesn't leave any lines in the wood.

This saw has power and control. Blade changes are tool-free and FAST. It uses T blades rather than U blades and comes with only one so you might want to get a package of blades with a variety of types at the same time. The chip blower works great. The grip and trigger are comfortable. It evens comes...

I wanted the most power for the least weight and this was my compromise. It works smoothly and so far I've had no problems. Especially like the blade insertion feature, no "screwing around" and the blade stays put.

After my Dewalt jig saw was stolen I read a ton of reviews on all the different jig saws out there. One common theme kept coming up...if you want the best jig saw, get a Bosch. I have used this saw for two months on a room addition and it is great tool. The trigger is super smooth, making control n...

Easy blade changes. Slow speed start up. Solid feel.

I bought this saw for cutting 17" circle out of 2" thick maple cutting board. Saw handled great, easy to control, lots of power, and no problem cutting 2" thick hardwood. I really liked the air blower blowing onto the cut area. The only thing I would recommend is an LED light to make it perfect. Tha...

I now have 2 of these sanders. I bought 1 for wood working projects several years ago after I saw good ratings for its performance. It met my expectations with good sanding performance and good dust capture when connected to a vacuum system. I had an older, off-brand sander I use for nasty jobs lik...

It sands, grips well, collects much of the dust, isn't too noisy, and doesn't make little curly scratches like some other sanders.

I love this saw,, but i have to say that even cutting slow in 3/4" select pine I have a problem with a straight cut or curved cut.. It want to bevel.. I've tried different blades but have the same problem.. i love the dust blower and the blade change is awesome. The stroke of the blade must be too l...

I was originally going to purchase another ROS, but after reading all the reviews about this model, had a change of heart. I purchased this to augment the B&D 1/4 Sheet sander I use to refinish furniture. The first item I tackled was a 4'x4' tabletop that I wanted back down to the original wood. In...

Purchased this sander for refinishing and varnishing two wooden kayaks. Completely met my expectations. Used with a vacuum there was practically no dust (a major problem for me since I was sanding epoxy, which is toxic). Grip was very comfortable, and variable speed was useful for more delicate wor...

Questions & Answers

I am interested in buying this tool and I would like to know if it helps me to polish my car too and what accessories can I b

Thank you for your question. The Bosch ROS20VC will work well for sanding applications as well as a polisher/buffer for autos. We do carry polishing and buffing accessories, including bonnets, buffing pads and applicator pads.

I'm not too sure polishing a car or other larger surfaces is an appropriate use for this tool.

My husband used this sander after our purchase and he said he would not recommend this sander for polishing a car because of the many angles of the car and because this sander is controlled with one hand. You need something with two hand control.

I would not use it on my car finish. It is too heavy and the head is too hard for polishing a car finish. They make a separate orbital polisher for vehicles.

not that I am aware of I would buy an appropriate orbital polisher.

has anyone used this for polishing/waxing ?

Thank you for your question. The ROS20VSC Orbital Sander can be use for polishing. You need to have a polishing bonnets and disc or buffing pad like the RS014. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from M-F 7a-7p CST.

no

Haven't used it for that purpose but there are disks available for that purpose like the ABRTEN Green Film Sanding Disks 5-inch No Holes Hook-and-Loop Sandpaper 2000 Grit 50 Pieces Blue Fired Aluminium Oxide For Car Paint Refinishing & Woodworking or Metal sanding and polishing

I wouldn't use it for polishing and waxing. The weight of it is too great and the sanding head is too firm and if you had grit under it it would likely damage your surface. They make separate orbital polishers that are lighter weight and have a softer head.

Yes. I used to polish a Corian countertop using 3000 grit discs. Worked well.

Can I order a replacement dust canister? I dropped the canister and the lid cracked. It now shoot...

Yes you can order a replacement for the Dust Container. It is Bosch Part Number: 2609199179

Thank you for your question. Yes, you can order dust canister replacement. Just provide the part number 2609199179 when you call us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from M-F 7a-7p CST.

Not sure if you can buy one but dust collection is much better when hooked up to a shop vac.

Can i use this to buff polished marble?

Thank you for your question. You can use ROS20VSC as a polisher by using a buffing pad RS014. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Yes, this can be used for that purpose.

Yes. You will be very pleased with the performance. Used mine to polish out my headlight lenses.

With the right buffing pad yes.

What's the difference between this and the similar ROS20VSC?

Thank you for your question. The difference between the ROS20VSK and ROS20VSC is that the "kit" includes a hard carrying case; whereas the ROS20VSC includes a canvas carrying bag.

Variable Speed, = more control when rounding edges and fine work situations. Worth the money in my opinion.
