Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chilledmac Great purchase for the money!
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.

This sander will get the job done, but if your looking to do a professional style job you may want to put the extra money out for the better quality sanders. As expected it has a hard time discharging the dust into the collection bag and the belt doesn't stay in place very well. Especially if you have to apply or accidentally apply pressure, but it will get the job done.

This was the 3rd one of these Ive purchased. This time immediately out of packaging the belt wobbled and wouldn't fit correctly. The previous 2 sanders both stopped sucking the sawdust into the bag which made it almost impossible to see what I was doing.

Good quality product, that does a great job on sanding hardwood floors. It takes time, but the finished product is beautiful.

I purchased this sander to sand a tabletop and bench top for outdoor use...worked great. I then used it to sand a 16' x 25' deck. I thought this might be its demise...but, it actually did a great job and lasted through the entire project.

Had a belt sander of a different brand, had been stored for awhile and one of the drive sprockets disintegrated while I was trying to use it. Purchased the Ryobi, simple to use, has the features one would expect and does a great job. Excellent price.
