Got the Makita cordless sander the other day and got to try it on some ceder and PT. Since this is my first RO sander, I cant compare it to a corded model.
The sander is a little heavy with the battery, but that seems to work in the machines favor. There are 3 speeds and runs very strong for about 15 minutes on high. Very handy for touching up cuts that you want rounded off or that are rough.
If you have the makita 18 volt system, then this is a great bare tool to add to your tool box. I paid $110 for it from Fastners inc.
