Makita 9403/2 4" Belt Sander 240V
A great long lasting belt sand
There isn't a belt sander I would rather purchase than this one, it works well, will continue to work and won't disappoint. It is a bit pricey but I wouldn't settle for a lower quality sander.

Powerful and solid 4" sander
Very powerful solid sander. Yes it is heavy, but it uses the weight to perform the sanding tasks.
Used it for three hours since purchase two days ago, I am amazed at how powerful the 4 inch belt is performing excellent sanding on rough sawn wood.
Very impressed with quality and performance. I know this sander is going to be heavily utilised.

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.
