Porter Cable Orbital Sanders Review

Porter Cable Orbital Sanders Review


Porter-Cable have over 100 years of experience in the production of high performance tools. The company pride themselves on producing the highest quality tools, equipment and accessories. Porter Cable now provide an extensive range of both mains powered and cordless battery operated tools including electric drills, powered bench saws, power sanding tools and many others.

We were very excited to take some Port-Cable orbital sanders on a test drive – mainly because we had heard so many good reviews from past buyers and also because we had heard so much in general about the quality of Porter-Cable orbital sanders.

We certainly were not let down, at all. As soon as we held the first porter-cable orbital sander in our grip – it happened to be the Porter-Cable 382 orbital sander – we could appreciate what everyone had been saying about quality. This particular orbit sander weighed in at 3 pounds, which isn’t the lightest sander we have used, but it’s no surprise seeing as its made using 100% ball bearing construction. This makes for a super high quality finish and gives you the feeling that it will last forever – because its just so well made.
