Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JavierCh Living up to the hype.
Love the compact size, long hose and easy feed of sand into the hopper. Spray handle was simple to maintain, may have been nice to get some oil along with product, but easy to use. The problem I had/have is with frequent line blockage and power of stream. I have moisture filters that I replace frequently. I strain my sand before going in the hopper and still have trouble maintaining a steady stream. Once I do have a stream, it just seems that it is not powerful enough to do the job. Specs say not to go beyond 90 psi, but it just seems inadequate. I had a 16' x 32' metal structure that I wanted to sand and repaint but used the sandblaster to do maybe 1/4 of it. I switched to a regular paint scraper alternating with a drill bit made for that purpose. I like the sandblaster, I just wish that it lived up to the hype.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eddy Probably not for a home owner
I prepared to use this to sand blast part of my foundation wall. After setting everything up by the book, I tried to use it, but no sand would come out. After trying several things, I contacted customer support. It turns out that my compressor did not have the CFM to operate this unit. You need 7 CFM at 90 PSI, which I would assume that most DYIers do not have at home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bina Very nice for small or light duty jobs.
If you're sandblasting large items, look elsewhere. But for the hobbyist looking for a small unit for light duty work it does the job. I used it with walnut shells for a small job and have no complaints, it did exacly what I wanted. I'll keep it for other small jobs even though I have a larger unit due to it's small size, light weight, and ease of use. A respirator or a dust mask is a good companion to this unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hormiga1 Worked just fine
The hopper worked well for my at home jobs. I purchased a coal slag to work with the sandblaster, and it worked pretty darn good. Easy to put together. I actually needed to purchase a connector for the gun but, that's about it. I sandblasted my outside metal chairs, harmonic balance, pulley, and headers. Still need to do a metal door. So I would definitely recommend this hopper. It is at an affordable price and does the job right.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SamSand456 This Sand Blaster container and hose
it worked as advertised, you will need the special sand and couplings to attach to your air compressor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RG911 Poorly Made
While the proper parts are there, they just didn't function and when I tried to clean it out after use it became clear the parts were just cheaply made and would not last long. The product only worked for approximately 15 seconds and then continually clogged. I replaced this with a product that cost 1/2 the price and worked great from the 1st try on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mangiate Works well...use only silica sand or blaster media..
If you are thinking of buying this unit with Walnut or Pecan shell media....forget it. It won't remove anything. This unit works well with play or silica sand or blaster media. It needs a dryer because a small amount of moisture coming out of the compressor will choke up the media.
Be sure to use it with a mask cause you can get silicosis.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exador Works great if used properly
I had great success with this but you have to follow some basic rules. First, It needs a ton of air. I was shooting 5cf at 50psi. Anything less won't work. I was using glass beads on my pool/spa tile. It took 15 years of white off. Second, you must use a dryer. I used throwaway ones from HF for $1.99.
