Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by benstrand Industry great. If you woodwork for fun this will add to your satisfaction. Great sander, produces above standard. Practice with it first as it is the best and will get away from you if you don't know the sander. I had it for 5 years and finally dropped it enough for it to break. Definately great for all who need a belt sander no matter what level of abuse. Spend the money on it. you won't be dissatisfied. August 25, 2006
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good when not broken I own a small furniture business and we have about 6 of these sanders, but only about 2-3 that work at any given time. I have returned and exchanged at least half a dozen of these. We use them on a daily basis but they do not get constant use, usually an hour or two a day. Here is what has gone out on these, from most frequent to least. -Motors spark and lose power, blowing them out helps some times but not always, eventually they just stop -Triggers go bad, we've taken them apart, replaced or repaired them -Belts break, internal rubber one, so motor spins but roller does not When working, they are great! but on average we usually get about 3 months out of one, I started dating them to keep track. I invested in a few of them early on, and have been exchanging them if it went bad, but they no longer want to take them back. I also figured maybe it was a couple duds that I got, but not the case. These are truly not reliable and a waste of money. I will be trying the makita ones in hopes for more longevity. August 18, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sawdust in your face design flaw This sander appeared to be the best one available, made out of metal, looked very heavy duty. In the first 5 minutes, discovered a serious design flaw that I am surprised no one has commented on - there is a slot close to the dust port. Sawdust flies out of that slot, spewing sawdust right in the face! This is the first sander I have ever returned. September 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Work Horse This belt sander is heavy, which makes the use easier. If you use a belt sander any at all you will enjoy using this one. My only complaint about this product is the fact that the engineer who designed it did not use it. This sander blows into your face if you are the least bit past 1/2 way on the side. If you are behind the sander you will have no problem with the air blowing sawdust into your face. December 29, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by face full of dust This thing is terrible. Upon first use the fan blows straight up so if you get this thing near you You'll end up with a face full of dust and belt rocks. Even wearing goggles I was constantly cleaning them. It's going back as the worst belt sander I've used. September 7, 2014
