Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nonsheep Great Belt Sander & Pressure Control Is Awesome!
Bought this Sander for some home projects that needed doing. This is one very STOUT tool! It performs well & the added Pressure Control is nothing short of Awesome! The Sander came with a nice filter which was easily cleaned after the sanding was done. Another plus is that it isn't heavy or cumbersome to use. I would suggest to always wear Eye Protection as well as Hearing protection. The tool kept me from gouging my work & removed quite a bit of material with the 80 grit belt. The 120 & 240 grits really smoothed it out nicely. I did purchase a belt Cleaning Stick & it maintained the belt very well. I would suggest buying one too!

The sander worked for less than one minute before the belt wheels stopped turning. I had an old Skil sander that lasted for twenty years; apparently having your products made in poor countries with cheap materials does affect quality. Will never buy another Skil product

We got new carpet and our doors were rubbing. This did a great job taking a little off the bottom of each door.

I bought the belt sander about 5 months ago. Its true the small filter canister does fill up with debris, but its a no brainer to empty it periodically. This is why the unit overheats if the motor cannot exhaust it will get hot. Other than the filter is a god send I do have to wear a mask when using it.
This is not a unit a contractor would use its meant for doing light duty wood work for the hobbyist. It has more than enough power from the 6amp motor. Best $50 I ever spent.

Nice beltsander,I like the features and it works great,I have used it on quite a few door edges and a few other things,the dust collector is great it collects about 90% to 95% of the of the dust and debris from sanding,the first time I used it I did not think that the dust collector collected that much and then I emptied the collector and there was a huge pile of saw dust and only about 5% to 10% of the dust wasn't collected,I was impressed,and when sanding on a no need to use any downward pressure,the weight of the sander creates enough pressure,be sure to have a good hold/grasp of the sander,and the trigger lock works great,very nice and great working product

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Very poor dust collection
This is my second 7510 sander in 2 weeks. You have a nice machine but what good is it if the dust chamber plugs up? There is no access door to clean out the chamber. It worked good for two 2 x 6 x 20 foot boards, then it plugged up. I back blew it out once with 150 pounds of air and it worked poorly for about 5 feet of board, then the plastic dust collector collected no more dust. It was all in the air and on the board. Why don't you fix the dust collection chamber (not the clear plastic container) or give it an access door to clean it out. I'll be returning this unit also. This is not up to Skil's usual standards.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tellenny Blocked Dust Port
Not at all impressed with this unit. The "pressure monitor" seems overly sensitive - just resting my hand on the front handle makes it turn red. But the worst part is after less than six months the dust port is clogged and saw dust now pools up on the piece of wood rather than blowing into the plastic receptacle. I've taken the cover off, tried blowing air into it, even banged it on the workbench to get whatever is in there out, but no go. Now when I use it I have to stop from time to time to remove all the saw dust, and the unit now runs very hot. Should not have bought this unit.
