For some unknown reasons, Dewalt does not have much cordless/non-electric sanders. Currently, she has just these two. The perspective of these two DeWalt cordless sander has been a big tug of war between power tool users and it has been really difficult to determine which is better. You know, they are both from the same manufacturer, have same operation style, both are random orbits etc. These similarities make it more difficult to choose one. One thing is certain, one is definitely better – this is what I decided to clear in this review.

So I brought these two sanders to our analysis table for a thorough check and my findings were interesting.

WHY I SAY DEWALT PALM SANDER DWMT70781L IS THE BEST DEWALT CORDLESS SANDERS

DEWALT PALM SANDER DWMT70781L is a beast with a great performance. I discovered this sander is a lightweight, compact sized sander designed specifically for ease of use. You would love that this DeWalt cordless sander feature the sticky (velcro) pad style which enables fast sanding material changeover when it is worn out. The sander also supports changing the pad from a sticky pad to a hook and loop pad, to enable an operator to complete a wider range of tasks in his convenience. From my check, changing the pad does not take 2 mins, just make use of the wrench that comes with this sander to unscrew the pad and fix the new one. Even when there is a need for a 5inches paperwork, this sander can take that too.

You would also love that this sander runs at 12000 RPM @ 90psi. As usual, I decided to check this out a bit more and found that this sander actually runs even at 80psi. This makes it suitable for both high-end tasks and smaller tasks -this is my definition of a professional sander. Provides the right power needed for any task.

The build of the DEWALT PALM SANDER DWMT70781L is also notable. It looked and felt durable and it’s very lightweight at just 2 lbs. Not a single problem was posed in the maneuver of the tool. The DEWALT PALM SANDER DWMT70781L has an orbit size of 3/32 which is just perfect for finishing work. From my check I would certify this sander for bare metal prepping, tough rust removal, removing coats of paint, automobile body works. etc. I loved that this DeWalt cordless sander left a smooth surface on every check i did. And I’m sure you would love it for that too.

What I didn’t quite like about DeWalt Palm Sander DWMT70781L:

  1. The air hose might take a while for you to fix properly. However, after it is properly set, you shouldn’t have any problem with it.
  2. Just like every other sander, this sander also requires constantly oiling. This is, however, an important measure to take to stop a sander from breaking. This is too much work for someone like me. I am yet to find that sander that requires little or no oiling. As soon as I find one, I would check it out, publish a review and add a link to it *here*.


DUAL ACTION SANDER DWMT70780 is a great DeWalt cordless sander too, it held up all through my checks, however, while I was checking the oiling maintenance of this sander I noticed it gradually started spilling oil everywhere after the oiling. The whole work surface was stained. The oil also got to the pad and softened the adhesive holding the pad to the base of the sander. It was quite a big mess and big turn off for me. I just ditched the sander after this. I also learned that this is a notable problem with this model. From my findings, I would recommend DEWALT PALM SANDER DWMT70781L over DUAL ACTION SANDER DWMT70780.
