A powerful tool that knocked my sanding time in half. It took a like while to get the hang of it since I had never used a belt sander before. But once I did man, it sure made the job go a lot faster.
Excellent belt sander, much better than many of the low-end sanders available. Heavy construction and very strong running, you'll just need to spend a little time practicing to get a feel for balance and belt tracking. Like with any belt sander you can easily damage the wood you're working on if you haven't developed some skill with the tool.

This belt sander has plenty of power for most jobs, both heavy and light duty, and it's plenty easy to operate and configure, but just like a lot of the other reviewers noted, the belt tracking system is bad and the dust collection system is even worse. The belts constantly drift in and out on the rollers because the spring loaded adjustment mechanism never stays locked in, causing uneven sanding and/or belt destruction, and the dust collector really only collects about 4% of the dust created. For a 1 or 2 time use, maybe for light duty only, this belt sander is probably OK. For anything more than that...I'd use a different belt sander (I still use mine fairly regularly, but having to adjust it literally every couple minutes aggravates me to no end).

My brother is the carpenter of the family and he found the tool to meet his requirements to get the job done. I always lived by the creed "Right tool for the right job." This tool meets the standard.
Bought this to replace a 3X21 belt sander I bought 35yrs ago that was a JC penny brand. That JC penny sander worked great with all the power I needed was all metal and was lighter then this new one but the Transmission finally gave up sad to see it go. This one works great so far I have only used it a few times but am just starting to sand all the wood work in my great room including the stair railings. Have had no problem with tracking as others have stated just wish it was lighter.

Belt does not track well. After making the proper adjustment to align the moving belt as I start to sand, the belt drifts way off to the inside, where it gets shredded by the adjustment screw spring anchor or at least 1/2 in. outside the sander. This spring adjustment design has too much play to maintain any set adjustment. I will be returning it
