I love bobs answer, it doesnt come with one, HD has to size belts, buy the smaller size, lol, wow, thats helpful! It DOES come with one 80 grit, HD has 4 or 5 different SIZE belts, 1x30, 3x18, 3x21, 3x24 and maybe one other. These all come in all grits, so "buy the smaller one" wont get you far.

Research the optimum grit to use for different jobs and finishes and you'll know what you need but experiment and experience you'll know what you need a lot better. A good start is to buy a pack of each grit and you'll be stocked for a long while under normal use and you'll have the one you want instead of having to go get a different belt. Use each grit on wood metal paint etc real quick and you'll be way ahead of the curve. Read Less

The belt size is in the tool description 3 inches by 18 inches. No other width/length will work, The sander includes one belt. In the previous model the belt was a medium 80 or 100 grit (i can't remember which).

The belt size is in the tool description 3 inches by 18 inches. No other width/length will work, The sander includes one belt. In the previous model the belt was a medium 80 or 100 grit (i can't remember which). For real heavy duty sanding, either stripping paint or varnish, or really rough wood you need to start with 40 or 50 grit belts (check amazon.com for price and availability), then smooth out to your desired texture with 80, 100 and 120 grit, or you can skip the 100 step if you need to go to 120, For a really smooth surface, either hand sand with 150 or 180 grit, or use a random orbit finishing sander with 180 grit. Belt sanders are meant for really rough surfaces or heavy duty stripping. If you're stripping latex paint, remove the belt frequently and check the belt rollers for build up of melted latex dust. Carefully remove any globs of melted dust from the rollers.Latex dust will melt and clog up everything that's not sealed. I'm buying a new sander because the belt release is jammed up and I can't change the belts. One more piece of advice, don't run the sander for more than an hour continuously. I burned up 3 sanders in 3 years doing a large amount of stripping all at one time. The sander I'm replacing has lasted over a year and is still working fine except for the belt release, being used only 40 minutes to an hour before taking a cool off break. Read Less

Yes, but I would need to know more about your situation before I would recommend serious work with a belt sander on metal, an angle grinder may be a much better tool of choice.

Yes! Its not a crazy 2x72 on ceramic bearing 150$ pulley wheels, but a 60 grit moving at any speed will remove metal. I built a housing around mine stabilized upright to grind my knives, literally did that today. I have a homemade 1x30 that works pretty good but the 1" isnt really wide enough to get the consistency across the length of the blade and the thing is absolutely DEAFENING. I got this and have both problems resolved, its mild even without ear plugs and the 3" good to go platten is a lot easier to get the whole thing almost at once, the only down side is the sander body obstructing the right side so have to do the other side of the blade edge down which just takes a little more concentration. Happy grindin'! Read Less

You can use this product on a wooden floor how ever you need to be careful to be be consistent to prevent high and low spots. This product is fairly aggressive. You may be better off using a large disk floor sander.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This is a you get what you pay for item 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. July 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap 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. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! Does just what I thought it would. Good quality product, that does a great job on sanding hardwood floors. It takes time, but the finished product is beautiful. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Little Sander 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. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value, works great 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. June 14, 2016
