I have had this little belt sander over 5 years and am amazed it is still going strong. I have sanded the hardwood floors of 3 large rooms in my house that took weeks of non stop sanding getting this little sander hot to the touch. I have also sanded several very large pieces of furniture and also many smaller jobs. I keep waiting for this thing to die but it just keeps on going. If only all products were this strong!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no way to tighten belt! This was the worst tool purchase for us. I actually got it as a Christmas gift from my husband and felt like I Shouldn't return it. The belt has never had great traction so it stops turning with any pressure. I called customer service to double check and there's no way to tighten the tension. I've cleaned the rolled and installed a new belt and it helps for about 30 seconds. $50 wasted because it's unusable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well It is easy to swap out the belts, it sands great. The only thing that is deceiving is the filter bag...this doesn't really do anything as far as I can tell. You will still have sawdust flying in the air. Aside from that its a great purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sander for the price Can't beat the quality for the price on this sander. It's worked great for many home projects so far. My wife uses it with ease and it fits both our hands well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for Belt sander worked fine for awhile; reasonable power for the size and price. Motor burned out after about 3 months' occasional use, not reparable or returnable. If you have a major project or plan to use the tool a lot, I'd recommend investing in a higher-quality power tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate Has plenty of power and seems well balanced, not awkward. My only disappointment is the number of times I have to adjust the tracking. Otherwise works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful, but dust collection issues. I'm used to an orbital sander so it took a bit to get used to how powerful this is in comparison. Very easy to change belts and handles well. I'm currently using it to refinish an old hardwood floor and it's fast and does a good job except the dust is not coming out the exhaust hole. I originally tried hooking it up to a shop vac and then tried the dust bag that came with the sander. The dust doesn't go into the bag but just blows out the front & back of the sander. I've had to stop every few minutes to vac up what was left on the floor. I see a few other reviews mention the same problem. If the dust collection system worked this would be an excellent sander.

Can this belt sander be turned upside down to sand small parts

Some belt sanders can be flipped onto their backs so that you can use them to sand small parts. Ryobi was mentioned as one of the belt sanders that can do this, but I wanted to confirm before buying.

Yes it can be turned upside down. Have fun and hope you get your project done before the big day if that is your due date!
