Porter-Cable knows how to make a better sander but they make more money on this one. I’ve read the reviews and have to wonder if someone is getting paid to write them. I just purchased this sander because my old 503 went to the repair shop. Suddenly I am praying that is can be fixed one more time. The 360V does sand fairly well, I will give it that. The problem is that you may go deaf if not wearing ear protection, or you might plug your lungs without a good respirator, and don’t forget your eyes. The bag for this machine is very cheap with a half baked spring clamp. The bag…

Not a good purchase I have done cabinet work for 45 yrs. Used various belt sanders. This is the second 360 I have owned. I bought one years ago that lasted.

I think porter-cable is trying to compete with harbor freight quality but forgot to drop their prices. Just sad.

I use a 20 x 20 box fan with furnace filter over the suction side to collect the bulk of the airborne dust. I read a review about a 4 x 24 sander but opted of the 3 x 24 because of the lighter weight. I’m glad I did…
