This product is well balanced. The adustment features work simply and competently. Dust collection leaves a lot to be desired...needs improvement.

  • Summary: This is a well balanced piece of equipment that handles very well. It is very easy to maneuver into random shapes with predictable results. It has adequate power to get the job done quickly and competently.

Needed this a long time ago

  • Summary: Wish I had bought this years ago. Refinishing a deck using an orbital sander, then had to just get serious. The only problem is the belts tore, but my problem since didn't sink nails before starting project. Heavy but manageable if you pay attention!

Excellent product

  • Summary: Tracks well. Great for hogging of wood. I used the Hitachi sander to sand solid stain on a 500 sq. ft deck which strippers had no effect on. Surface turned out great.

a very well made product

  • Summary: This sander has been in use for a month now and displays the strength and durability I had hoped for. While it is heavy that means it just needs guiding. A thankful feature is its relative quiet operation even at the maximum of its variable speeds. (Use ear protection anyway.

  • Summary: yes it works good, is as good a sander as my 4x24 but a hole lot lighter, an easier to handle. haven't done any extensive sanding with it yet as I have three belt sanders. one each for heavy, medium, light sanding. yes it sucks up the dust behind it self to. like everyone says.

Relatively light weight, easy to handle and control

  • Summary: This is the first and only belt sander I have ever used so I cannot compare it to any other. it is easy to handle and control. It is relatively light weight. Belt changes are hassle free as are the belt adjustments. I used it on 12x2x10 long Douglas fir and had no problems.

Removes material very quickly

johnwc, Hitachi Power Tools

  • Summary: This is much faster at removing wood than my previous belt sander. It is much quieter. The dust removal is especially good; it really sucks up the dust. It is good it has a speed control because it can easily remove more than I want.

Very Powerful

trainman, Hitachi Power Tools

  • Summary: This sander is very powerful and makes my old sander look like a toy. I needed to sand some humps off my living room floor where I had added on the room and this sander made short work of it. You can't go wrong with this one.
