Had to resurface my deck, an area approx. 36 x 12. I used a commercial sander for the large areas, thinking the belt sander would only get used in a few areas the large one could not go.. I was mistaken, as it turns out, even though the commercial sander was designed to strip deck surfaces, I ended up going over nearly the entire surface with the belt sander. Plenty of torque and drum speed to make fast work of stubborn areas. the size and weight were not an issue, it ran flawlessly for a few hours at a time. Will be using it on the railings next!

As usual, Black and Decker has provided a great tool for a reasonable price. I've been going to town on the six layers of paint on my front porch. This belt sander has not skipped a beat!
I definatelty would recommend this to anyone looking for a decent sander.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimO4374 Highly recommended.
bought it because my son had one and loves it. Used mine once so far to "wall fit" a vanity top. Works great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer1 Good sander
The sander works very well, however, the belt slides constantly while sanding old growth pine. No big problem, just requires a quick turn of the adjustment knob. All in all, I am very pleased and would recommend this product for the price alone.

The dragster works great. You just have to make sure to adjust the belt tension, to keep the belt from traveling. I'm happy with the results.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BB Dragster Belt Sander
The belt sander was light weight and easy to use for small projects, however the front pulley guide did not last. It wore out after only15 hours of use. It is not designed for heavy duty use.

I really can't complain about this belt sander. I used it for something that it really should NOT have been able to do and it worked GREAT... I used it to sand 70 yr. old hardwood floors. It took 3 days and a boat load of dust (albeit the sander actually collected most of it in the bag... you just have to empty the bag every 25 sq. ft. or so), but my floor looks GREAT. I haven't put my 2 coats of poly on there yet, but WOW. I'm uploading a before and after photo for those who want to see. The before photo was taken 2 years ago with a different camera but you should still be able to get the jest of the improvement. It's PHENOMINAL! Took away 70 years worth of caked on brown grime, filth, & stains. BTW, I returned the Ryobi 6 amp yellow sander (3 x 18 inch) to get this one. It didn't work any where NEAR as well, surprisingly...
