Erbauer ERB401SDR 360w Â½ Sheet Sander 230-240V
Great 1/2 sheet sander
I needed a new 1/2 sheet sander and I was in store and saw this as a managers special. Â£15.00 quid off just because it didn't have a box. I had just completed drawer 3 of 4 drawers for my bench, and was able to try it out before fitting the drawer bottom. The sander made short work of this job. I like Erbauer gear already owning one of their routers. The sander is well made and solidly built, and is yet a fraction of the price of equivalent top brands. All in all a really good purchase. I Can't really comment on reliability as its a new purchase but have given 4* on the basis of other Erbauer equipment I own

Great sander at a good price
I bought this sander to smooth some internal walls after they'd be plastered. The sander comes with a selection of sanding sheets, and a hole punch so you can use your own sheets, or roll of paper. Fitting the sanding sheets is easy and the dust extraction system works well, collecting dust in a little back. Unfortunately the vacuum attachment doesn't fit my Dyson, but that's a minor issue as the dust bag does work fairly well. The sander comes in a sturdy bag.

Great addition to the workshop
Needed to replace my 1/2 sheet sander as my poor little detail sander was taking a beating!
Decided to avoid the cheapest for this power tool and couldn't bring myself to spend circa Â£150 on a top-brand variant.
Pleasantly surprised to discover the maximum speed control on the trigger and was impressed by the comfortable feel and non-aggressive noise that it makes in use. Sure, it works fine as a sander - the securing method for the sanding sheet works well - all round - a great purchase.
Can't comment on life-time as yet but hey - it comes with a 2-year warranty so bought with confidence.

Erbauer ERB401SDR sander
Works great on large areas. Faster than previous more expensive Bosch sander.
Downside is that it is quite heavy when using on vertical and underside surfaces such door casings and skirtings , though this is an advantage on surfaces such as floors.
I have only given it a 3 star score it on reliability as it has only had one day's use but it seems to be robustly made.
