6 Amp 3 in. x 18 in. Belt Sander is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you're doing a small floor and looking for a cheap sander ... This is a two person project. My wife and I started with a 75 year old 8' x 11' oak hardwood floor that needed paint removed beforehand so the goal was to get the floor sanded down for re-finishing. This machine is doing the job but is eating up belts in the process. My wife and I have gone through three 50 grit belts halfway through the 1st sanding step. The belts are blowing apart before they're worn out. But it is doing a good job overall for the price paid. Going with the grain, sometimes the machine feels like it's favoring one side either way so it takes some skill to keep things smooth. The "dragster" feature of the small radius front wheel came in handy for the edges. Can't complain for $50 as the job will take about 6 hours to complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I bought to finish a large floor sandding job and was impressed. The old finish was stripped away easily . The smal front wheels and one side flush use madee the edging a breeze. Belt tracking was simply and was able to run it on the edge. I would recommend to anyone if asked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Belt doesn't stay on-unusable product The belt immediately works its way off the second the sander is turned on. I bought a cheaper belt sander from Menards and it has an adjustable dial that you have to continuously adjust to keep the belt in place, which is also annoying but at least the belt stays on. The B+D sander needs something like this or a guard on the sides to keep the belt on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed I was a little disappointed in the 3 x 18 belt sander from B & D. For around 17 or 18 years, I have had one (another common name brand that sells on the inexpensive end of the spectrum) that originally cost me around the same amount I just paid for this one. The reason I got a new one is that somewhere along the years, I had lost the dust bag and I needed one with a dust bag to sand an area of a floor that has a hard varnish on it. The automatic tracking does not work as well as hoped; it began to shred the belt so I had to switch to 3M brand belts which seemed to work okay. The dust bag is disappointing. It does not capture even 50 percent of the dust from this particular job. Probably captures 30 percent. The bag and sawdust catching may work better on other applications, such as sanding rough wood. (I don't know yet). Overall, I gave this a 3 out of 5 because for the price, it is okay. But I personally would not get another one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... Seems to operate fine, but the housing is cheap. Bag attachment broke off the second time I used it. Hope the motor lasts for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First beltsander This is the first belt sander in my tool box and works better than I expected. I use good quality belts and I could not have asked for a better tool. It made short work of removing old paint and made my deck rework look great.
