Editor's Review: Belt Sanders Get Better

review date: November 1, 2007

DeWalt's 3-in. by -21-in. belt sander features automatic belt tracking. On the model tested, the belt spun perfectly right out of the box. The sander is easy to control and provides excellent sanding. It employs a third roller for tensioning, allowing for a convenient location for the lever that releases the front roller, which is more of an eared knob than a lever. Dust is collected in a canister rather than a bag.

A hose adapter, sanding frame, sanding stand, and fence are available separately. The hose adapter is designed for use with a DeWalt vacuum and may not be compatible with vacuums from other manufacturers. When using the sander with its stand, there is no room for the hose adapter or the dust canister.
