11 Amp 4 in. x 24 in. Corded Belt Sander is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid beast! heavy duty workhorse that i use for cedar deck resurfacing. good ergo for both handles and trigger lock for extended sanding. my only gripes: (1) dust port clogs A LOT, forcing work stop to unclog, or live with dust spilling out on work surface, (2) the dust bag sits way to high, making it impossible to sand under low obstacles (see Porter Cable for better bag design, (3) the flange to which the dust bag attaches is cheap plastic and will break when sander bag bumps into an obstruction. please address issue (3) such that issue (4) becomes irrelevant. as this is most expensive unit in its class, I would give 5 stars if bag was redesigned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita 11-Amp Belt Sander Great sander. Easy to put in a new belt. Awesome that I can attach a vacuum hose to it and suck all the dust into my shopvac. Have to use tape to attach it, but that's no big deal to me. Long cord is really convenient. Only one complaint - the lock button for the trigger. It does not stick out as most tools with a lock button. It is concave. Its position makes it hard for me to push it in using one hand. Even harder if you are using gloves. Start to feel how heavy it is after a while. But I bought it for the high amperage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sanding Beast Very impressed with this sander. It has plenty of power to really remove some material with an aggressive grit belt on it. Tool is a little heavy but it actually works to your benefit when sanding flat. My wife has been using it to resend our yellow pine floors and hasn't had an issues at all. The bag is easily emptied and reattached (we empty at half full). I used a section of rubber hose and a fernco to attach a small shop vac to the dust port and that works very well. The belts are simple to change by lifting the lever and sliding the old and new right on. Only had to show her how once. Tracking is very simple by turning the knob slightly until centered. There is minimal dust left on the floor as around 90% goes through the chute into the vac. Highly recommended for the advanced or novice wood worker.

I use to own an older, make that fixer-upper home, and I used the belt sander on quite a few projects. The belt sander has taken a lot of use, and abuse and keeps coming back for more. It is not the lightest belt sander out there, but it is well built. The belt size is easy to find, just about every hardware store carries that size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Got this for my son who builds custom homes and he finds the sander a well built product. Easy change to replace sandpaper and well balance when holding and sanding.
