This thing rolls like no ones business.
I've used off and on for over a year until recently.
I purchased some old oak fencing that was painted white. The boards have seen better days. I'm cutting up the boards to turn into herb boxes and wanted to sand them down to be painted. This sander cranked on like no tomorrow. Never missed a beat, never heated up, just keep on ripping off the paint.
I used the diablo belts, I believe 50 grit. Those are great also! Used only one for dozens of boards.
This sander, though not commercial, worked wonderfully and I would not hesitate to buy it again.

I am a DIY and never used an electric belt sander before. I am getting ready to sell my house and had to unstick seven doors and cabinets. The belt sander made quick work of it and the air filter that comes with it captured well over 90% of the dust. I was extremely pleased and impressed with the quality and maneuverability of this product. I was able to use it without even reading the instructions. Very intuitive. I believe it to be a very smart buy and at a very competitive price.

Great value for a belt sander. Wife saw a table in a Pottery Barn magazine, and asked if I could build it. Didn't have a belt sander and needed one to really smooth out the table top and bring everything together. This sander was up for the task, and made for very easy work smoothing everything out. Ended with a fine belt and the table is so smooth. The sander has a good amount of torque, but was light enough that it was very manageable. Excited to break this baby out again soon.

Works well for a diy tool. Not pro grade, but I have no complaints

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deee So far it is great!
We bought this sander to replace a Black and Decker one that right after the warranty decided to malfunction. The rubber on the back roller separated from the roller. We chose this one finding that even is it does separate there is no way it will roll off like the previous one since this one has a metal guard that keeps things in place. We have had great results from other Ryobi tools that we have purchased as well, not to mention they are priced better than the competitors most of the time.

Easy changing of belts. The belt stays aligned. Gets hot after awhile. Use gloves if sanding a long time

The sander is not very heavy and therefore it is easy to hold in different angles for longer periods. It is powerful enough to propel itself across the wall, so hold on to it.

This is a great sander for the price. It could use a couple things to make this a great product. But you get what you pay for and this sander is worth the money.
