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.

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.

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...

I like being able to flip up guard to get in tight places but the belt seems to wander a lot. I have never owned a belt sander and don't know if this is common or not

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mike Works just fine!
Needed a sander to fit in right spots. Found this. Read lots of reviews and pondered the mixed bag. The biggest was the belt walking off track. Weighed it against what I needed and took the chance.
Read the instructions and adjusted the tracking accordingly. Went through 5 belts over the period of two days with naery a problem. I did find that the dust bag didn't work exceptionally well, but hey, I'm was chewing through wood with 80 grit. My orbital sander throws off more dust.
I did take a break every couple of hours and blew it out with my compressor. Kept the motor cooler and the track cleaner.
