Reader Reviews

Not up to DeWalt standards

Review Summary

This sander broke after only using it several times. The rear shaft that drives the belt snapped. I tried to get DeWalt to fix it, but of course it was out of warrenty. I bought the part, fixed it myself and it has been doing OK since then. Dust collection is poor, using either the dust box or the vac adapter. It is powerful but noisy. I would not buy it again.
