Nice Sander, expensive, but worth it.

  • Summary: Makita makes a great product. This one was a bit more expensive than i was hoping for but the tool works well and I am happy with the purchase. Pros: 1. The sander is quiet and the construction is solid 2. The dust bag collects a lot of dust.

  • Summary: Bought the belt sander after reading reviews and features. I opened the box and pulled it out, tested it and then bought some more belts to have some on hand. The initial testing was just to run the unit without actually doing any work. Put it up winter coming and didn't have anything to do.

  • Summary: The Makita 3 by 21 belt sander is a big improvement over my old 3 by 21 Sears (junk) Craftsman belt sander that I gave away. After reading all the reviews I ended up buying the Makita belt sander and don't regret it. It's powerful quite and very smooth running.

  • Summary: Very impressed overall with this sander. After reading many reviews on other sanders, I decided to go with model. Very powerful and easy handling. Dust collecting bag works well but I like the fact that my shopvac hooks right up to it...perfect!

  • Summary: lots of power and the bag works very effectively for me. Cord is SUPER long (which is fine with me). I highly recommend this unit.

  • Summary: Great quality but if you have never owned a belt sander it is something you need to practice with or you will probably destroy your project. It is very powerful and I would suggest not starting out with the 80 grit belt that it comes with.

Gets the job done

  • Summary: No problems at all with this sander. It's a little heavy, but I guess that's to be expected. There was no problem with drift, which seems to be the main problem with belt sanders.

Excellent belt sander

  • Summary: This sander is all it's cracked-up to be. Though heavy, with regular use, your arms get stronger and it is easier to control. I bought this to sand down lots of rough-sawn pine as well as driftwood planks that are then made into benches. With 40 grit belts, it removes a lot of material very quickly.

... plus years and find this one at least as good and probably better

  • Summary: Had to replace my Craftsman sander of twenty plus years and find this one at least as good and probably better! At my age it will probably last me for the duration. Well build and the automatic tracking is fabulous. Much quieter than my departed sander
