After reading the glowing reviews I didn't hesitate to purchase this one. I've used it only a handful of times and in those times it kept throwing the belt so at first I thought the tension was off. I finally figured out that the pully wheel wasn't spinning freely. Further investigation found that the bearings were coming apart and had seized up with the pully shaft. Nothing I tried would free it up. I tried clamping the pully wheel with vice grips to hold it still while I turned the shaft and it cracked. So now I'm at about 50 bucks worth of parts to replace and I don't think its even worth it since the tool never worked right even when it was new
Love it love it. I'm very impressed with the performance for this tool. Well worth the money. If your doing heavy grinding pick up some extra sanding belts you will need them. But all belt Sanders ate that way.
Excellent build quality - as you'd expect from Chicago Pneumatic. Very happy with this purchase.
Dony want to ruin the rating for this because i owned one in the past and it wws great for grinding off spot welds. But i think i have received a defective one because the belt kept slipping of the front. So Amazon is taking it back. Thanks amazon. I love chicago pneumatic but i think i will go for a half inch by 18 inch one, woah CP made it in those dimensions.
This sander is being used for a specific purpose in our QA department, they are very happy with the ease & quality of the product.
