Pretty much worked as thought
The unit has basically worked so far as I had expected. I would have thought that the speed control would have been wider and the top speed was 20% faster.

Does the job
The price is what made me select this belt sander since it was much lower than the Mikita, Dewalt, Bosch, Ridgid, and Porter Cable sanders with similar features. It also felt lighter than all the others ones I held, but I didn't compare the weights listed on the boxes.

The belt tracking is a bit fiddly since you have to adjust it every time you change a belt, but maybe this is normal. I usually have to tweek it again after a few minutes using it but then it seems to stay put. The dust collection worked much better than I thought it would but it leaks dust where the bag matches up with the housing even though I ensured it was completely on. The variable speed is really appreciated since my old belt sander didn't have one.

This sander is a bit loud but no louder than my old sander, so hearing protection is a must. Belt changes are a snap, so good job. Make sure you blow out all the dust, especially in the motor vents so you prevent the most common cause of failure.

I can't say that I'm satisfied with the tool. Recently had a black n decker 3x21 dragster that had much more power. Yes the Hitachi is constructed better and should last longer but let's face it when using a belt sander it's all about removing material and the faster the better

Great tool and easy to set up and the use. I was making a hard maple and walnut cutting board and it made the final prep for finishing much easier. Anyone needing a good belt sander will be happy with this tool.

I have not used a belt sander, so I had to experiment with it before using on my finished project. Works great.

Overall this is a good machine.
The only the I would change about this machine is the location of the dust collector bag. It tends to be in the way if you are right-handed. The only way I can see to make this better would be to make it mount on the top of the machine in front of the handle. Other than that this is well built and well built machine.

Excellent Belt Sander
This belt sander is powerful and I love the adjustable speeds. I read a lot about sand paper coming off when running and it does if you're not properly using it... it collects quite a bit of dust in the bag as well so it's not so dusty. For under 160.00 this is the best sander in my opinion. I will continue buy hitachi products.

Good value tool.
I gave the sander to my son so I have no personal experience other than putting a belt on it and turning it on to make sure it worked. But my son reports it has worked well, and having bought other Hitachi tools in the past, i'm sure it will prove to be a good investment.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
