Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A great utility sander The sander arrived on time and in gear order. I'm very pleased with its size and simplicity of operation. A great product. However, it got four stars for Home Depots availablity of replacement belts . They are not in the stores and I could not find them on the wed site. I ended up going to Amazon for replacement belts. If your going to sell the tool you should have easy access to replacement material; especially a tool like a belt sander that requires frequent replacement parts. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This sander is very powerful but yet easy to handle. It's a great tool to scribe with. April 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 371 Series 2-1/2 in. x 14 in. Compact Belt Sander I ran the belt sander for about 1/2 hour - it got so hot I couldn't hold on to it. I have returned already without issue - Home Depot is where I by all my tools - Normally a great value and quality September 8, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Runs hot. Belts available online only. This tool runs hot. It has always run hot. I never hold it by the body, on the grip, where you are supposed to, unless it is a really short job. I hold it by the front handle and by the strain relief for the cord at the very back end. Belts always break at the seam, which I expect to be due to heat failure and the belts don't last long. If the belts are directional, I do pay attention and put them on correctly. I cannot buy replacement belts from any manufacturer at Lowe's or Home Depot. I have to order them online. That is a real turn off! I would not recommend buying this tool unless it has some features than you cannot find in some other sander. It is powerful for a small tool. So, it is powerful, when you have a sanding belt to put on it. June 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Very easy to handle on a job and can get close to edge and borders. September 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice little belt sander Handles nice, easy to change belts and align them. Works just like my larger belt sander - if you don't keep it moving, it will eat into the wood. :) SURPRISE! Works better than the big one because it is much lighter, and gets into places the big one can't. Dust collection was pretty good although I had to use some tape to keep the hose from falling off. Since this sander is shorter, you may have a tendency for it to rock a little more than the big one. After using it for a while, I got over that. The motor seems strong enough and in those places I beared down a little it didn't slow down much at all. I'm glad I bought this and I will probably use this one even more than the big one - especially on the small projects. March 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great small belt sander for home use. This small belt sander works great and is small enough that it is easy to use and handle. For most non-commercial home jobs this is the perfect size belt sander and at a great price. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Belt Sander for small jobs! This is a great belt sander if you have smaller jobs that need completed. It is very lightweight and easy to operate with one hand as well making it great for work on smaller pieces that require more finesse. It is true Lowes and Home Depot do not stock many of the belts but those can be found online at a very cheap price. I sent off for 30 belts recently for about $2 per belt and was able to select whatever grit I desired. I highly recommend this sander. February 24, 2015
