Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big workhorse This thing is heavy - like 15 lbs. But do to it's heft, it is surprisingly steady to use and not near as torquey in the hands as I'd expect. It pulls strong and removes a lot of material with stronger grits, so it can be a workout to handle, but what do you expect? Belt tracks very straight. The dust bag is mediocre at best and a lot of dust is blown out in the split seam of the wire retention, so I rigged it to a shop vac for dust extraction, and that works well, but the outlet for dust is not a standard size for my dust collecting attachments, so I got a rubber collar with hose clamps from the plumbing department, and that works very well. This sander is a TANK. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This belt sander is awesome! While this sander is heavy, it is very well built and is easy to use. It can easily remove a lot of material quickly so you have to be careful about that. The belt is easy to align and it didn't lose it's alignment once I set it. As others have noted, the dust bag attaches easily but doesn't fully close around the exhaust port, which allows a small amount of dust to blow out. I have many Porter Cable products and find them to be very reliable. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Works great. Easy to align belt. Lots of power. Just be careful, it gets very HOT. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Sander works very well, Runs quiet (compared to others) variable speed is nice Heavy tool, but well balanced. Dust bag and collection is pathetic!!! The trigger is hard on the finger if held for very long- they need to round off or soften the corners. Need to use trigger lock for extended use. I would buy this tool again and recommend it to others. Long lasting durability will remain to be seen- have only used about 10 belts so far... June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Porter Cable 12 Amp 4 in. x 24 in. Variable Speed Belt Sander I've had many 4X24 belt sanders. Most others either seized or broke down, without a parts availabilty. This sander has been around and is great. It's a little heavy but can be worked around. Yes, I would recommend it. April 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work Horse! Very powerful tool. Gets the job done with very little strain and does it quickly! It is heavy because of the powerful motor. April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dusty I have owned many 4 x 24 Porter cable sanders and the new dust bag system is worthless. Bring back the old one it was far superior! December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just right the right size, weight and power for the work we will use it for...thanks for truly well designed maachine December 23, 2015
