Open this kit up to find not only the namesake tool, but also a selection of six accessories and 25 sanding sheets. The 3.7-pound model's body is well-balanced, its tool-free change-out is easy to operate, and the 10,000- to 22,000-OPM adjustment wheel is smooth. It's not as quick or powerful as the Bosch, and its motor ran hot at its peak, but this unit came in a close second, offering significant power for a solid price. [$130; portercable.com]
