Porter Cable has a new 20V Max cordless sander coming out, model PCCW205B.
The new 5″ random orbit sander runs at 12,000 OPM, and features a “high performance dust collection system.” A dust collection bag (canister?) is included, and connects to a multi-port adapter that accepts different diameter standard vacuum hoses and connections.
Porter Cable draws attention to the sander’s low profile design, also saying it’s easy to control and has low vibration.
MSRP: $60 for the bare tool
There’s not a lot to say about the new Porter Cable cordless sander, at least not a lot to judge it by. It seems to have a single speed motor, which is okay. Sometimes I like variable speed models, but it’s not always needed. Maybe Dewalt is working on a cordless sander too, and variable speed vs. single speed is a differentiating factor, as with their compact routers.
