Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A real workhorse A real workhorse. I have been sanding floors in my home with it (pine). I have had to sand through glued on linoleum flooring shreds, glues, floor backing, varnish, and 90 years of stains. I think have spent 30+ hours sanding so far. Love this tool! April 1, 2014

Thanks for your question, jim68!
I'm afraid that we do not offer a carrying case for this tool and are not aware of any that we do have that would be compatible for the R2740. I am sorry we couldn't be of more help.
