Rated 5 out of 5Â by Brum Does the job
One floor done two to go.
Good weight easy to handle.
Changing belts very simple.
Contra to some reviews I have found dust bag to be effective and robust.
Three on reliability because only had a week.

I do still recommend this product, only for the price. It does an excellent job (rinsed the performance of the 650w Makita). Belts change easily, the slip adjust works well and it is powerful.
However just out of guarantee and hasn't had a heavy life I would now consider it to be beyond repair. First the metal baseplate warped and cracked, meaning it wan't suitable for fine level work, then the plastic bearing housings melted in the fan\drivewheel assembly, tilting the motor belt pulley and killing the drive belt in no time. Oh and the switch stopped working (but fixed when opened cleaned). You get what you pay for though, I think I'm going to get a second hand Makita 9401

Rated 1 out of 5Â by dt23 Broke in under an hour.
Was told when I returned this that I was the 5th person to take back this product, all with the same problem I had.
It worked fine until the rubber on the drive drum disintegrated. I didn't even get through the sanding belt it came with, so returned my 2 packs of unused sanding belts as well.
I was sanding a 3m Sq floor, it didn't need heavy sanding either. I got around 1/3 of the floor done before it gave up.
Some people have found this sander good, I wouldn't recommend it.
