Sanders with a Vacuum Dust-Collection Port

DeWalt DW443

3½ stars
Price: $165; DeWalt
Test results: This sander left an acceptable finish on all three surfaces. 95 dB.
Dust collection: very good with the bag, excellent with the vacuum.
My two cents: "This sander is best for rough sanding and shaping. The critical controls, like speed adjustment, are located at the back of the sander, making adjustments inconvenient."
Tool stats: 5.7 pounds, variable speeds, 6,800 max rpm, 8-foot cord.
