Titan TTB290SDR 3" Belt Sander 230V
My first belt sander, bought to clean up some garden furniture and I have to say not a bad bit of kit.
I realised before buying that this was not a high end unit and some of the quality of the casing leaves a bit to be desired nevertheless it seems robust enough.
Belt replacement and alignment is a doddle and their easily enough power for it to disappear of the far end of the table I was sanding before I got used to it.
reliability should be fine for my occasional use not sure about use in professional applications, but then for the cost it would be easily replaced.

Cheap & Cheerful, good too.
Reasonably priced 500mm belt sander, easy to center the belt and not too heavy for over head use. Its getting some hard work and is out performing a much more expensive and heavier sander. I don't use a dust bag but it connects to my extraction system fine, (with bit of a bodged joint).

Bought this sander for one off job, did not want to spend to much as only had two walls 15 X 8 ft to sand, and getting on in years so don't want to buy top of the range for one off jobs.
Sander performed well at start but got very hot even though I had a vacuum attached for dust. Got one wall done one day good job. Next day started other wall sander got hot again after a short time then gave up and died.
Took it back to Screwfix staff was great, although never had one in stock, and none in warehouse, searched around for me and located one in next town, I said I would go and collect next day, Yes got other one hope it holds out,

Great value! Does the job!
I bought this to sand my floorboards in my 1930's semi. So far so good! It glides through the years of dirt with the 40grid sand paper.
The belt sander is solid and sturdy. Only bad thing is the dust bag is flimsy and the bag rod poked a hole in it.
All in all, with 5hours of continuous use it's still going strong.
