    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Picked up the sander and when I opened the box... Picked up the sander and when I opened the box at home, it was used; missing the belt, some scuffs around the sander, and dust in the bag. My rating is not about that but about the performance. It’s ok. I notice some slipping of the belt from time to time on not too difficult passes. I wouldn’t recommend based on the price and performance

    Does the dust port connect to a 1.25 inch shop vac hose? I know the RIDGID orbital sander does, so wondering if the belt sander is the same.
