Makita 9403/2 4" Belt Sander 240V
Hard Days Labour
I have worked in a school for over 7 years as a technician and previous other jobs .
I had the in enviable task of sanding down and re-varnishing 15no. 4ft square work bench tops.
This was a daunting task, but my brand new Makita belt sander made it easier and it only took me three days to sand each desk twice with different sandpaper grades.
Three points 1. it is heavy if you are using it for a long period of time.
2 The easiest way to stop the cable getting trapped if to place it over your shoulder
3. The rubber cork and carbon plates can be replaced cheaply online.

I had a very large kitchen worktop to sand down in a church kitchen. This sander turned a daunting task into a pleasure. The sander is fairly heavy and that could be a problem on vertical surfaces. On a horizontal surface the weight was an advantage. I have always found Makita products to be the best and this sander has once again confirmed that belief. Don't forget to purchase extra sanding belts as there is only one in the box.

Great tool cut my sanding time in half
The power cord can tend to get to close or comfort to the action so be aware, you may use all the time you saved getting a cord out of the sander

this is a good solid machine, you get what you pay for and this has stood up to the test so far
