Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pineguy Dragster - First to finish
I purchased this product for one use only. To assist on refinishing a pine floor in a ~120 year old house. After getting past the minor glitches, the tracking adjustment (had to adjust several times but finally it stayed until the nest sandpaper replacement)and a not so tight front spindle screw, it took off. When moving large hot water rads is not an option it trimmmed under and around them just fine due to the unique front end. For getting at thos hard places you don't want to do by hand this is a very viable alternative. Not as fast as it could be but then again is is not a tool for every day hard use.

Rated 2 out of 5 Not the Best Tool in the Box
I bought the B&D Dragster Belt Sander with the idea, that maybe I don't have to spend a lot of money on a tool I may not use much. Also, the sleek low profile nose caught my attention. I thought it would be able to get into areas the more hefty models couldn't.
In this case it was wrong thinking. The sander is under powered and the belt tracking goes off so you often have to stop to adjust the tracking. I can't say this sander is not for anyone. Just not for someone that wants to do some serious work. I think Arnold would have called this - a Girly Man's Tool.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by spongeface Just a terrible product
I'm suprised to see anyone gave this any stars above 1.
this is a horrible product. Tracking is ridiculous, handle is sub par.... basically a child can make a better product.
don't shave for a day and drag your face all over the wood you want to sand... it'll do a better job then this sander, and takes less effort.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Dust Hog Belt remover breaks
The belt remover bracket is plastic. After running it for a while, the plastic became soft and broke when I needed to change the belt. Also don't apply pressure, the belt slips easily.
