Questions & Answers

Can the 9404 be turned upside down and placed in a vise to use as a stationary sander?

Asked by: Panels
Some of the answers about "Upside-Down" use and the "Lock ON" button seem to refer for the other model of Makita sander. This one can and has been used upside-down - but not in a vice. Also, the variable speed is a great advantage when used this way.

does this model have a button that can lock the unit in 'ON' position, similar to what is found in the 11-amp version?

pictures don't indicate if lock button is there
Asked by: darren
Yes, like most power sanders it has a lock 'ON' button which allows it to be used upside-down on a table.

does this belt sander come with case to hold it?

Asked by: Ignacio
A case does not come with the sander. Aftermarket tool cases and tool bags are available from Home Depot and other sources.

8.8 Amp 4 in. x 24 in. Corded Belt Sander is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Sander Seems it is the second time I am asked to review this product.. as I said I have no issues with Makita.. the foot size is perfect for my uses.. it is heavy.. so no need to push down hard. .. I would not use it for vertical surfaces as it is heavy. What I like about this particular model is the following. .. the ability to lay it on its back and use as a stationary sander... use a jig... And the variable speed assist with the different materials..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sander. Not many 4 inch wide, variable speed belt sanders out there. Easy belt change... Excellent sander. Not many 4 inch wide, variable speed belt sanders out there. Easy belt changes, quiet for a sander, easy to handle even with its weight, which is actually a plus. If there is anything to change, a larger front handle would be better for me. Does a real nice job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot fault Makita... It is an excellent workhorse. . Had one before with 220 volts... needed to purchase a 110 volt model.. does what itis designed for.. nice and heavy... large sanding area. It all depends on the belt used.. But machine delivers the power..use it continuously..

Belt tracking is rock solid. Speed control is very useful. It's solidly built so I expect it will be in my shop a long long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good belt sander for the money. I have had Makita power tools in the past and was always satified with them.(ie. table saw. chop saw. circular saw) Still have them after 26 years and they have seen the're share of many home improvement projets plus some contracting over those years. I decided on the makita belt sander because of the variable speed,decibel level and the're proven reliability. I have had two other non makita sanders and they both died. I,m refinishing some older yellow pine floors in two smaller bedrooms and I did not wish to rent a floor sander. Just finished one of them and the variable speed was a must. Looks great!!! and I will save a good dollar doing so. I,m sure I will not be disappointed with my new sander. And the bag works great also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tool is great for serious surface removal. Don't buy it for small surfaces, little jobs or detail work. This tool is great for serious surface removal. Don't buy it for small surfaces, little jobs or detail work. Everything I own by Makita is top notch. We work our tools hard and pretty much only use DeWalt, Makita, Porter Cable or Milwaukee. You won't be disappointed.
