371 Series 2-1/2 in. x 14 in. Compact Belt Sander is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 19.

The build quality and design of this sander is fantastic, but there is a serious defect with the motor and cooling. This thing literally caught on fire after its first 20 minutes of use on a 18x15" maple slab I was leveling. Snapped this photo after unplugging it, then had to get out a hose. Literally my very first project using this tool. I am very familiar with the concept of 'let the tool do the work', I had read other reviews and knew to go very easy on this thing to avoid overheating. I was running it connected to my dust collection system. The few minutes I did get to spend with this sander were fantastic, and I really want to have a functioning unit. But this thing is downright dangerous and Porter Cable needs to pull these off the shelf until they have redesigned them to not overheat. This was a very small project and this thing just went up in smoke immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Belt sander that's easy to control I am a 60 year old woman, I paint sets and props for movies and TV shows, I often have to prep walls that are uneven. This sander is perfect for grinding down seams. Chews through wood or plastered surfaces far better than my orbital disc sanders. It's extremely easy to handle, I can hold it above my head with one hand. I liked it so much I bought a second one, even though the first one still works perfectly after six years. I read in a couple other reviews that the sander gets hot, I have not found that to be the case. I've never really ground seams for any longer than about five straight minutes. If you have small hands or have had trouble with belt sanders being unruly and cumbersome, this is definitely the sander for you. Packs a lot of punch. The only drawback I can see is the belts are only available online, but you can get a five pack for seven dollars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
