If you’re tired of sanding for extended periods with your palm stretched across the top of a random-orbit sander, and your fingers held spider-like to manipulate the switch, take a look at Makita’s new BO5041 tool.

This new 5″ random-orbit sander can be held with a top-mount grip, but the BO5041 also has a handle that gives you a chance to change your grip as you sand; that eases muscle tension and fatigue. And both grip areas have a rubberized cover to aid in comfort.
