Summary: " This sander is very unpleasant to use and has distinct flaws. The centre of gravity is very far back, which makes it liable to tip onto the rear roller and damage the work piece. The tracking is useless, causing the belt to wander so much that it can either sand it's own casing or overhang the base plate by several mm, both while set on the same adjustment.
Summary: " When I got the unit home I was unhappy with the build, the rear plastic housing was rubbing up against the rear rubber belt drive, making the belt difficult to fit. For the first 20 minutes of attempting to get it to work the driver wheel would not turn despite the motor running.

Summary: " Used on stairs and very good for getting close to edges - better than other sanders. Good that the dust is collected. Downside is product was far more expensive on internet than reserving in store so had to travel to get it!
