Erbauer ERB378SDR 1200W Compact 4" Belt Sander 230-240V
bought this sander a year ago & has performed well doing some extreme work until the brushes went. It seems that you can't get new ones. Shame to throw out an otherwise good sander just because the brushes need changing........if screwfix can help me with this then its a top deal, if not, then its worth buying a more expensive sander that you don't have to throw away when something goes wrong.

I have a Dewalt 3" sander, but bought this 4" sander for some floor sanding.
I was quite surprised at how much bigger and heavier the 4" sanders are and indeed they are much more suited to floors than their smaller brethren. If you need a lighter, more maneuverable sander for general purpose sanding I would recommend a 3" sander.
The motor is nice and smooth and relatively quiet. Speed is fixed at about "moderate" which is fine for most jobs, especially this the larger belt sanders are not really "general purpose" machines. Speed control seems more suited to a 3" sander in my opinion.
It tracks well, and it's as easy to change belts as you would expect. As one other reviewer said, buy good belts. These machines sand at an alarming rate, so cheap belts wear out pretty fast.

Easy to set up
Belt change is simple, as is adjustment. If you want a large powerful budget belt sander this will be it. The supplied fine grit belts bump a fair bit at the joint but better can be easily bought. Have sanded off varnish and taken some sawn timber down to a very fine finish. Was effortless.

Has a real quality Feel to it and really does make light work of sanding removing a significant amount of material compared to an orbital sander. dust extraction is great when connect to a standard vacuum cleaner. Would definitely recommend this product.
