Corded Belt Sander - 21" x 3" - 7 A - 800 ft/min is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Works great and gets the job done. The tracking on it could be a little better since sometimes you won’t realize the paper has run off course until it’s too late. With that being said as long as you keep an eye on it the adjustment is pretty easy. The guard in the front is nice to be able to get into tight spots and also to keep an eye on the paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Sanding Despite some of the negative reviews I read, I decided the sale price made it worth taking a chance on this sander. I am glad I did. The unit operated as expected. I had no issues with belt drift. The bel was easy to change. The multiple position top handle makes the unit very flexible. The only knock I have on this device is the difficulty in reattaching the dust collection bag. It could have used something more sturdy than a piece of cotton string that you’re expected to tie in a bow from the bottom side. Other than that, it’s well worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality and performance Bought as an occasional use sander. I have a palm and orbital i use alot but its nice to have a belt sander here and there. Extremely noisey, the belt adjustment doesnt stay set and eventually the belt works into intself and has already melted the housing in a couple spots. I should have just spent the extra and went with hitachi/matabo or whatever they went to now for their brand. Milwaukee and hitachi are the only tools i use and ive NEVER had any issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after an hour of use This is a complete waste of money. We purchased it to sand the seams of OSB sub-flooring and it only lasted an hour. The rubber gasket on the wheel ripped and the locking mechanism would no longer hold the sandpaper in place. It also doesn’t come with the option to plug a sweeper into it, it only has a small zipper bag that needs changed way too frequently. Our old belt sander saved the day & this one will be going back as quickly as we bought it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from belt doesnt stay put. it slides to the left. i had high hopes fir this since it was craftsman but first time i used it the belt kept sliding to the left no matter if you adjusted the belt or not. The belts are super tight on it which is why they slide. I tried the ine that cane with it and tgree other brands none fixed the problem. Im taking thus back fir a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last 30 minutes The majority of this sander is made of plastic. Within 30 minutes of sanding, the sides began melting and caused the belt to rip where the plastic melted. I will be taking this back [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted about 30 Seconds I buy almost exclusively Craftsman tools. Plugged directly into 25 foot 15amp rated extension cord on a 20 amp circuit, motor burned out within a few minutes of use. Returned the next day, on the plus side the return was pretty easy. I don't think I have ever had a Craftsman power tool fail me. I will say that this particular model looked and felt more like a toy, pretty cheap plastic housing, but I figured for light duty it would be fine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dragster Problems bought June 15th, almost immediately had tracking problems eating into plastic case. I gave up on deck sanding went onto end table project for grand daughter. Today the sander quit working, ie, motor runs no turning. Been buying craftsman for over 30 years, getting real frustrated with Craftsman, this is warrantied so will see how I get treated on this warranty action! Come on Craftsman get back to the standards you had....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The belt adjustment knob was used incessantly While lightweight and versatile in design, you had to adjust the knob on the belt adjustment so much to keep the belt straight on the roller, that it made the job of sanding very difficult. It would rub the plastic constantly to the point of braking the belt. No matter how slight of an adjustment, either way, the belt would not stay centered. When I took it back, two more of the same Sanders were returned for the same issue. Just a bad design for the front roller assembly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home owners I have always been a fan of Craftsman tools and this belt sander is no exception. It's great for projects around the house or in your home workshop. However I would not reccomend this sander for more heavy duty everyday projects. If you are looking for something to keep in your home workshop or garage this sander is a great addition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good for the price works good for what you pay. To get something more durable and higher power, you will have to pay 4x as much. The sanding belt that came with it is very good. Have been using it for a couple of hours and no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sander Picked it up to level out two boards that went together a little off. It should get noted it comes with an 80 grit band. I couldn't see anywhere on the box where it said what grit that band was. I took the band off the display model. Kind of wish it came with an assortment of grit bands like a 80, 120, and 220.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from weak and fussy I purchaesed this sander to replace a 20 year old model for an upcoming project. The belt alignment would not stay true, and required constant attention. With anything more than the lightest pressure it squealed and stuttered. My 20 year old craftsman belt sander ran circles around this new model, and is still more powerful even on its last legs. positives -Ergodynamics are decent - when hooked up to a vaccum it collects a respectable amount of dust
Date published: 2020-07-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure why you would buy this over competitors After trying one of these for the second time, I am returning it for the last time. It is decent for the money, but for less money you can get a competing model that is very similar, but has speed control. This unit flings sawdust EVERYWHERE. Even the cheapest random orbit sander has a ROUND vacuum connection for large jobs where the bag will be insufficient, but this has to have a special connection that only fits the tiny little bag. Even if it had a standard-shaped vacuum outlet, it would only help a little, as more sawdust gets thrown everywhere BUT the little collection bag. With no speed control, and a non-standard sawdust outlet, and the fact that it throws sawdust right into your face while sanding (among other random directions) I recommend selecting a different belt sander. I love Crafstman, but this particular sander is a fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid worker But gets warm I’ve had this sander for a while now, about two years. I like a rougher belt on this so it cuts more and then I finish with a different sander so it’s not continuous or over heating on a bigger project. It does get warm/hot after a while. So be ready to switch up or do something else. It’s not a continuous type duty sander but it does a solid job. I really have had no problems with it but I work then give it a rest to cool down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight for easy maneuvering This is a great belt sander if you need to be able to manipulate contours and are looking for something that doesn't weigh a ton. Perfect entry level belt sander that doesn't set you back to much to do the job that you need it to do. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
