Bosch ROS20VSC Random Orbital Sander Review
This machine is perfect for the perfectionist! The Bosch ROS20VSC was built with the final product in mind, so carpenters, cabinetmakers, and woodworkers who want to finish the job off exactly as they envisioned it.
Bosch’s pad breaking system, which they call a “pad dampening system,” is designed to give you the best finish possible by helping to eliminate the possibility of swirl marks being left on your final product. A soft, pliable microcellular backing pad helps to further enhance the finish quality this sander is capable of producing.
Bosch’s patented HookTight hook-and-loop disk attachment also helps to keep your workpieces clean. It has over 35,000 long-life hooks that will ensure a firm grip of the disc while it’s in us — think of it as a super-powered velcro! This HookTight system helps to eliminate loose pad connections that can lead to swirls when the product is braking.
Not only is this a high-functioning piece of equipment, the Bosch ROS20VSC is also incredibly easy to use. The Bosch features a soft grip top and body which allow you to get and maintain a comfortable grip on your too, no matter how long your task. And, weighing in at only 3.5 pounds, and with an orbit diameter of only 3/64 of an inch, you won’t have to worry about wearing yourself out from use. Added features for controlling dust such as a microfilter system that traps finer particles as small as ½-micron in diameter, and a twist-off dust canister that can easily detach for simple cleanup.
But don’t brush aside this sander as anything other than a serious machine. Despite its small size, the ROS20VSC packs way more power than you would expect. The Bosch boasts a 2.5 amp motor and a variable speed dial that makes changing speeds between or during tasks easy. The variable speed control allows you to adjust between 7500 and 12000 orbits per minute.
There’s a reason there are so many Bosch products included here in our best of reviews and this orbital sander exemplifies the quality craftmanship that make Bosch products so reliable.
