Solid construction but eats belts I bought this sander yesterday from my local True Value hardware store to replace an ancient Black and Decker with a burned out motor. I needed to use it to sand down a 16’x16′ plywood dance floor.Upon opening I noticed that the rubberized plastic construction felt solid and well made. I read the directions (a rarity for me), popped on a new belt and started sanding. As per the directions I let the weight of the tool do the pressing while making nice smooth strokes. Five strokes…

The Other Reviewers are correct, Shreds belts I figured surely it couldn’t be that bad, but I went thru five belts taking two layers of paint of an area about 24′ sq feet. I was able to get one belt to last a bit longer by swapping it end for end before it shreded. The drive wheel is shorter than the front wheel and there is a spot where the belt goes around a metal surface…seems to get real hot and degrade the belt until it fails. Otherwise seemed like a nice device with great ergonomics, but this belt shredding flaw completely…

Works for me! I purchased this sander for a few projects I needed to do around the house. I looked at the Makita and Dewalt but didn’t want to spend that much money. I took a chance on the Skill despite the other reviewers bad experience and I’m glad I did. I haven’t had any belt shredding problems and this sander really gives a good bang for the buck. It was powerful enough to the job on PT wood. I couldn’t be happier, I spent less than $40 here at Amazon.
