Rated 2 out of 5 by from good whilst it lasted Bought initially to re-furbish a couple of picnic benches but with a view to being a useful tool that I didn't yet have .... All seemed to be working reasonably well although being quite light it was bouncing around a bit, especially when the join of the Screwfix supplied belts came around. Then, without any warning and after less than 20 minutes total use, it became apparent that although the motor was running the belt was not moving, this was accompanied by the un-mistakeable smell of burning plastic and a worrying amount of smoke from the rear roller area. Further investigation revealed that the drive roller had somehow slipped sideways and come off its' spindle and jammed, the drive spindle was rotating inside the now jammed roller hence the smell of burning plastic ...... and no more drive :( For this reason I cannot recommend it, maybe I was just unlucky but it's going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Bought and Returned Replaced it with the more expensive Makita I was undecided when I bought this Hitachi. I went for the price after having a van load of tools stollen. I literally turned it on a realised it was rubbish more diy. The unit doesn't feel balanced weighted more on the left hand side theres no weight over the belt which meant it bounced around. A 75mm belt isn't great , and a 1meter cord whats the point I moved sideways and it unplugged itself annoying. if your a professional get the Makita Sorry Hitachi not great. Plus points I did use it for a minute or two it did seem to remove a lot of stock material. but It would be folly to keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the money After much searching through many reviews on the net I finally decided on this Hitachi belt sander. First impressions are it feels like a good piece of kit, solid and appears to be well built. I haven't had much opportunity yet to proprerly test it but I am sure it will cut the mustard. One thing I would have liked is for the sander to have a profile where it could be clamped upside down on a bench. I was able to do this with my old sander. Also, to provide only one sanding belt seems a little mean. Having said that I am looking forward to using this sander for many years. Screwfix have once again delivered on the price.
