Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Damaged prior to shipping
For the 1st time, I'm disappointed in Home Depot (online). Received my sander in a damaged box which was re-taped prior to shipment. Its clear the unit had been dropped multiple times due to both ends of the box were pushed in or crushed. This is NOT shipping damage, the tape is tight over the top of the damage and not conforming to the actual box damage shape. Returning unit to store, unopened, for exchange. I don't know if it will die 4 month from now due to the drops before I received it. If these are opened box or returns, it should be stated in description. If it's Home Depot's policy to ship damaged box products that would have been difficult to sell in a store (who would actual pick this one from a shelf), it should be stated in the description.

I really like that this sander (unlike my previous ones) does not require constant adjustment to keep the belt aligned. I have yet to do any adjustment when changing belts. That, combined with the lifetime warranty make this tool my first choice.

I bought this belt sander for my wood sign project and it did a great job. It was very easy to use and I really liked the feature that allowed one to change sanding belts without tools - just flip a lever!

I'm a furniture maker and would say this is a great sander. Well made and works great with my dust collector!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bgarza20 Good Belt Sander
Overall this is a good product. I am able to use this product on many different projects. You can also use it as a table sander by simply laying to its side and clam it down know your hands are free from holding it! The only thing could be better is not all wood dust gets blown in dust bag and dust bag is not a very good filter. But it's better than a lot of other products out there!

The day I brought this home from the store, I used it to sand a a dresser, a nightstand and all they drawers. Performed flawlessly. Not sure what happened with the other reviews but the auto track centering worked great. I highly recommend this belt sander if you want a quality tool that will last a long time. Ridgid's Lifetime Service Agreement is just icing on the cake too!

Poorly designed auto track. Doesn't keep belt centered. Even the manual adjustment know will not stop it from wandering back and forth. Thought it was defective and returned it. 2nd one had the same problem. My advice, try another brand.
