Cheap and cheerful

"The trouble with picking the cheapest of anything is that it can be a bit of a gamble ... will it be good enough? This is (currently) Screwfix's cheapest belt sander and I have a large area of wood that needs sanding, so I wasn't too sure it would be up to it. I needn't have worried, the job is 3/4 finished and it's fine. It's relatively light in weight, which has meant that it's not too stressful when sanding above head/shoulder level. Sanding for hours at a time, doesn't seem to be a problem for it; it doesn't overheat (though conditions have been cold) and the only interruptions to work-flow are to empty the dust bag and to change the belt (very quick & easy). A lot of the dust seems to go in the bag, but inevitably, some doesn't, so eye, nose & mouth protection is essential. Another must is ear protection: at full speed the noise is seriously unpleasant and probably risks damage to one's hearing as the tool is inevitably used close to the body. I didn't find instructions in the manual on how to adjust the running position of the belt, but it didn't take long to figure out which control adjusts it. Overall, I'm pleased with it - it does all I require."

Cheap for a reason

"I purchased this to replace a different cheap one that gave up the ghost after 10 years work and this has lasted a week before giving up after cleaning off old tile adhesive."

2 failures in two hours

"I bought this at 2:15pm. It's now 4:25 and I'm returning my SECOND sander. First one lasted 4 mins before stopping suddenly. Second one was MUCH better - that lasted 35 minutes before folding the sanding belt back under itself, jamming the mechanism and stopping.
OK - it's the cheapest on here but come on Screwfix - we trust you to sell stuff that works. I've lost one and half hours and 30 miles in petrol and couldn't recommend this product for filing paper. Disappointing.
