The 382 Porter Cable orbital sander is a modern feat of engineering and provides a quality level that is arguably greater than any other orbital sander on the market. The design of the portal cable orbital sander may not look as impressive or visually appealing as some of its competitors, however the quality is clear to see. The 382 model orbital sander boasts a 100% ball bearing construction as well as a dust-sealed power switch making it extremely durable and likely to last a very long time regardless of how much use it gets. For this reason we rated the 382 as the best quality orbital sander for 2017.

Smooth finishes every time

This random orbital sander from Porter-Cable features an automatically controlled variable speed system that will provide slow speed up when you start sanding as well as variable slow-down as you pull away from the sanding surface. This automatic control of the sanding speed ensures that you are left with a smooth surface that is free from gauges whilst also ensuring that you have maximum power and spin speed whilst sanding is in progress.

Vibration free sanding

This orbit sander also has a built in dual-plane counter-balanced fan that helps to reduce the amount of vibration that comes from the device whilst sanding is in progress. This reduction in vibration is definitely noticeable when compared to other orbit sanders and it makes the sanding experience far more pleasant whilst also reducing user fatigue.

Sanding paper compatibility

The Porter Cable orbital sander has been designed with compatibility in mind and it will accept both 5 and 8 hole hook and loop sanding paper which means you have a greater choice when it comes to topping up on your sanding disk supplies.

Powerful Sander for Fine Finishing

The 385 model orbit sander from Porter Cable has a 1.9 amp motor and can spin the sanding pad up to speeds of 12,000 OPM. This means you get both a powerful sanding ability and an ultra smooth finish thanks to the automatic variable speed system. We found that this sander was well suited to both large sanding jobs and fine finishing jobs and as such is a very versatile sander.
