"This machine is a very sturdy piece of kit. It has both weight and ease of use, NOT normally a twosome found together. Changing the sanding loop takes ALL of 30 seconds. BE CAREFUL NOT to sand in one place for too long, or it WILL indent the substrate."
"This is the second power tool I have bought using Titan and I think for a low end budget tool it is excellent. The Titan SDS I bought has performed well so far, though not used heavily yet, it's done a few jobs - sure a dewalt or makita may outlast these makes and I would often argue sometimes cheap is false economy however with Titan it really performs well."
"Have only done two smallish jobs so far, so can't comment on reliability, but it works very well, has enough power and speed to drive the most demanding belt through hard wood, and the dust extraction works well enough that a minimum of mess is made.
Might not be suitable for professional use, but I don't know what more an expensive unit could offer a DIY user."
"Well worth the money with plenty of guts in the motor--bought it to sand off a piece of Oak that had been dried and it had the chain saw cuts showing badly.This unit made short work of the job and the client was most pleased"
"I bought this sander despite some adverse comments. I needed it to sand down an oak panelled wall - several square metres. It did the work quite effortlessly in a couple of hours. No problem with the belt, motor etc. I had purchased some extra sanding belts expecting to need more than the one supplied. Delighted to say I did not need them. Overall an excellent machine at a very good price, which does exactly what it says on the box."
"Great easy change sanding belt design. Change the sanding belt in 3 seconds. Some feel that the motor burns out or that the drive belt slips. I have to say I'm afraid that a bad workman may here be blaming his tool. This sander has a great fan built into the motor to cool the device. Sander has variable speed but try to keep the speed high as slowing it down also reduces the cooling effect of the fan, of course! As you use the sander you'll notice your leading hand is near the fan output air blast. Notice how hot the air is and if it starts to suddenly increase then don't stop the sander! Simply remove it from the wood you're sanding and let the motor cool down with its own fan. Someone else said that they wanted this to sand an entire floor with. Probably not the best idea, you really need a much wider floor sander. You'd be tempted to lean hard on this sander to make it strip faster and get the job done. Sander wouldn't spin freely then, it gets hot and that when you knacker it. I'm not perfect but i have to try to choose the right tool for the job."
"Having read the reviews for this product, I was a little wary when I ordered it, but I needed a cheap sander for a one off job, and the price fitted the bill. Despite the shortcommings noted by other reviewers, I was quite impressed with the overall perfomance of this machine, which on its "maiden Voyage", was used for approx 4 hours with no problems from the machine at all. The only problem I had was with the sanding belts I bought with it, which were less than reliable ( see my review in "sander belts") to put it mildly. Otherwise, I was very pleased with the performance of this tool."
"I got this as my old sander,about 12yrs old,the bearings went. This sander is fat superior at 1 1/3rd of the price of my old one. Its features are great,its variable speed control,the belt angle adjuster,and the dust collection bag,make this this a great machine."
"I bought this to sand a hallway floor after struggling with a random action and mouse sander. The finish was much better than I expected and the dust collector worked really well unlike some of my other power tools. Very impressed."
"good product for the price. However this is the second one I have had recently. They are for moderate to light use only. They are not for big long jobs that require heavy duty sanders such as sanding down complete floors!. The old addage ' you get what you pay for ' Use it for smaller jobs and let it cool down if you have worked it hard for 20 minutes or so and it will last and prove reliable."
"Having used a sander in the £200-£300 range ( excellent !) I was dubious about buying this far cheaper product. However with some old oak window frames that needed refurbishment I thought I would 'risk it'. I was very impressed at the value for money that this sander offered. I soon found some more jobs to utilise it's potential for those DIY jobs about the home. I would definitely recommend this product for general DIY jobs but professionals may need something more robust. The dust bag is a waste of time but probably necessary for nominal 'health and safety ' criteria to be met by manufacturers. Wear a mask, work outside or just hold your breath ! Guttersnipe"
"Not expecting much for the money, this Titan surprised me at how powerful and trouble free it has been, and it has been used hard. Dustbag is a total waste of time, but attach a vacuum to it and you're away. Yes, it is noisy, and it can get warm. But is does the job."
"I bought this to sand down walls that had been gouged badly scraping off damp proof coating. I have used it to sand off paint on the woodwork too, thick layar from years of paining, came right off. Read the instructions, well worth the money."
"As this is the first belt sander I have bought, my first job with it was easy and gave me a very good finish. Tried with and without the dust bag will always use it from now on. Changing belts was easy."
