The Short List

DeWalt’s 5″ Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander (DWE6423K) is the first in a new line of sanders from the DeWalt Perform & Protect™ line of power tools. To minimize vibration, it features a separate counterweight that provides the user with comfort and control, leading to a smooth finish. Now the shortest and one of the lightest 5″ random orbit sanders in its class, it allows the user to get closer to the sanding surface, making sanding projects easier.
