6 Inch Ridgid Random Orbital Palm Sander Review

6 Inch Ridgid Random Orbital Palm Sander Review

This video is a review about the 6 Inch Ridgid Random Orbital Palm Sander. I’ll give this 6 inch palm sander 3.5 stars out of 5 stars because it does work well for the money I bought it for but does not compare to the festool palm sander I have used, but overall gets the job done. The Ridgid 6 inch palm sander is more aggressive and more powerful compared to the 5 inch palm sander made by Ridgid. This particular Ridgid palm sander has 2 different orbital modes and also has speed control. It also has a trigger lock mechanism so that you don’t have to hold the trigger while you are using the sander. Model number for this Ridgid Orbital Palm Sander is R2611.

Great Review! Thanks!

Alex Hernandez says:

So how is the pad holding up on your bosch. Do you use it without a vac?

Buffalo Man says:

I wonder how this would work with velcro-backed 6″ compounding and buffing pads on a boat. Mine is 10 years old and runs strong on wood only so far.

light box says:

How many times did you use the sander within the year. Thanks again!

The earlier 2610 which I bought was made in Germany, and it still works great after ten years.

WF Castro says:

I agree with you, I like the Festool one also.
