I went through this same decision making process when my old Skill sander died.

I chose the Milwaukee 6021‑21 5” ROS. I find that it is very powerful and the VS is very useful.

But I love the soft start… that’s a nice feature.

Also, the hose hook up fit’s right in my 2.5” shop vac hose with no adapter or fuss… and it catches almost all of the dust… literally, I don’t see any dust. (note: I have a HEPA filter on my shop vac, so the dust stays in side it).

I made my decision based on reviews here on Lumber Jocks …. specifically, from some of the woodworkers who’s projects I admire.
