Featuring a wider and longer belt than conventional belt sanders, this Makita belt sander empowers you to make real quick work of your sanding job. But what really makes it one of the best belt sanders around is its powerful 11-amp motor that delivers an astonishing speed of 1,640 feet per minute. It’s fast. It’s powerful. And it covers a wider area in less time to get the job done much quicker.
Surprisingly, it may have a very powerful motor yet its operation is more like a soft purr. You don’t need any ear plugs to help prevent noise-related deafness. Part of its remarkable low noise capability is the labyrinth design of its motor housing, effectively sealing both vibrations and noise emanating from the motor. This is the perfect belt sander for folks who dislike really loud noises while getting the job done quicker.
