The Makita GV5000 & GV5010 Sander has become one of the preferred tools for marble polishing applications. However, its backer pad required the use of messy glues and adhesives. This 5" backer pad from Alpha Tools is designed to fit on the GV5000’s unique spindle and attachment configuration.

It Works

by Jack

Easy to install. H & L is fastest way for extended use where several changes are required. Composition of pad makes control and finished result more satisfying.

product arrived damaged. Had a big gash in middle of pad. Also, the hooks DO NOT stick well to the Velcro of various brands of sanding pads. Waste of money!

Alpha 5'' backer pad

by Tile Marble Granite

About 10 years ago I purchased this Alpha 5'' backer pad for my US Makita polisher as I needed to fabricate some natural stone in my jobs. I lived in UK at the time being and this product was not available on the European market, so I had to purchase it here on this website. They shipped it to me very fast at reasonable price. All I can say it is a perfect backer pad for natural stone fabrication. Will buy it again. Amazing product!
