Outstanding Belt Sander

Review Summary

This sander is a real work saver. I upgraded to this one after seeing positive reviews. They were right! It has variable speed, which helps with stock removal and makes it easy to control. It has an extra long cord, which cuts down on the need for an extension cord. The motor seems well balanced over the belt, so keeping it flat is easy. It removes stock and flattens well with a 120-grit belt and set on mid speed. It would remove stock even more aggressively if set higher.
Overall, a great unit.

Review Summary

Been using this sander for many years now and it has never failed me yet. It has plenty of power and is not as bulky and heavy as as some of the others on the market. I also like the fact that you can sand right up to the edge of a wall or partition because of the way it's designed.
