Dewalt XR 20-Volt Random Oscillating Sander DCW210B Review


DEWALT 20V 5 Inch Cordless Random Orbital Sander

Its brushless motor is designed t give you almost 1-hour runtime on a 5.0 ah battery.

The sander has a rubber over-mold handle to reduce fatigue from vibrations. This sander is compact, easy to manage size and weighs only 1.9 lbs.

It’s lowered body that allows you to get closer to the work surface for more control and clearance when sanding. An easy to reach, variable-speed dial, located at the top of the tool, next to the power switch.

This one-handed speed adjustment provides speed control from 8,000 – 12,000 oscillations per minute. The power switch on this tool is a rocker switch with a rubber boot sealing out dust and debris.

Switches are a common weak link on dust producing tools – nicely done Dewalt.

The 8-hole hook-and-loop Velcro sanding pad is straight forward and has nothing new to report.

We especially like the one-handed, easy to lock dust bag.

The attachment connection on the dust port attaches securely to theDWV010 or DWV012 dust collectors.

We really liked using this sander. Its powerful, and low vibration.
The dust collection bag works good, and when hooked up to dust collection its awesome.


Making vacuum hose connections to the dust collection required me using an adapter I had in my shop – not easy

Dewalt should provide an adapter to simplify that.

While we did not get continuous use testing we got well over an hour of off and on use.

ACME tools tested this sander and were able to achieve approx. 1-hour of continuous use on a 5.0 Ah battery.

The brushless 5-Inch Random Orbit Sander comes in a few configurations:

Kitted with a 5.0Ah Battery for $249
Kitted with a 2.0Ah Battery for $199
Bare tool for $119

Nice lil sander .whats the price point???

Gabriel Matte says:

I own the Ridgid cordless sander and it’s really hard to control to the point where I needed to clamp down my work in order to sand it down and it’t rare that I go and grab it to do anything. It wasn’t well balanced I think and I was always fighting it from going on it’s edge which isn’t good.

It’s nice when I go on location and need a quick sanding but other than that I do not grab for it.

I have the impression that this has the same issues just by watching the video. I do have a dewalt sander that has no variable speeds and it works great and it is comfortable enough to do long sanding sessions.

Tyler Sineath says:

My crew leader got the Milwaukee sander that things really nice with the filters in the dust compartment but the speed setting on the side is a little heard to adjust while using but I can’t wait to get one of these.

Jonathan Friedrich says:

Any thoughts on the break on the sander?

Peter Kiernan says:

Great review
Been happy with all you reviews. Can you get a review on the DeWalt cordless router?

Tim Pearson says:

Gread video, since we are in different lines of construction, I do Multi Family (Production ) Framing. The Flex Volt is the bomb for me The Quicky saw for cutting concrete beam pockets that are wrong Plus the monster roto hammer. Then add the new vac and I can put in Red Heads at plate breaks without getting fined. Even though I’ll never use a sander I appreciate the Quality stuff Dewalts putting out in that XR line

William Todd says:

Great, another yellow tool I don’t need HAHA!!!
