8.8 Amp 3 in. x 21 in. Corded Belt Sander is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best purchase belt sander is a excellent tool . I Would highly recommend .One of the Best I have owned.
Date published: 2016-08-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite a machine. I purchased this to replace an ancient belt sander that I destroyed. I choose this one because of a favorable review by Fine Woodworking magazine. It certainly does the job. I used it to smooth a glued up 3 x 6 foot oak table top. The sander worked through the project quickly and best of all it captured 95% of the dust. If you are looking for a professional quality machine this is the one. Some may balk at the price, but as one of my mentors told me, "When you pay for quality you only cry once".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Sander I ordered the Makita 9903 to sand rough sawn lumber that I use to build rustic furniture. It's easy to handle, and not too heavy that it wears out your arms. It has a long flexible cord. The variable speed is nice, but so far I've just used the max. speed. The dust bag is the best design I've seen. Unlike others that have zippers that get snagged or tear out, the 9903 uses a bag that has a thick hem, which are held together with a sliding C-shaped extrusion that slides over the hem. So all that's needed is to slide the extrusion off the bag and it empties the dust. Simplicity is best in this case. And as far as dust collection, it collects about all the dust is generates. I notice very little or none while sanding. The construction is quality. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Sander It's been a good sander. But parts are becoming obsolete to repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not made all from plastic This Makita replaced my dewalt and I prefer its quality. The belt adjuster actually works and the belt stays once set. Time will be the true decider

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a solid product and does the job. Did my homework and picked a winner. Very powerful and well built. Easily does the job.
Date published: 2013-11-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Worth the price. This sander is a little more expensive than other 3x21 in. sanders but, after my first job with it, I was very proud of my choice. The difference in power was noticeable right away. the belt tracking was 1st class and boy, I couldn't believe how quiet it was. This tool is first class all the way.The only unknown for me would be durability. Otherwise I would give it a five with a smile.
