Great light weight sander.

If you don't have the money, buy a good random orbit sander which is less than this junk.

I spend more time futzing with the belt tracking adjustment than I do sanding.

Love the low profile design which is specifically what I was looking for in a sander, so I was willing to purchase the sander just for this feature (already own a good belt sander that has a standard profile). However ... the belt wanders ALL OVER THE PLACE. Very difficult to keep it on track. I spend more time futzing with the belt tracking adjustment than I do sanding.

Also noticed that it takes longer to get the same results with this sander that I get when using my normal belt sander. Takes longer with the Dragster to get the same results using 80 grit, for instance, as I get with my old belt sander. So allow more time for sanding, even w/o factoring in the additional time needed to futz with the belt tracking.

Someone else mentioned squeaky bearings. Have that problem, too. High-pitched squeak can be very annoying.

Plastic casing isn't very durable. Within the first few minutes of use, the orange casing on the front end shredded due to belt tracking being off (belt slipped to the inside and I didn't stop the sander immediately because to see if the belt would adjust itself).

Great looking sander. Great idea. Love the concept. Frustrated with belt tracking. I don't have the patience to continually adjust it. So only use the sander when I really, really need to use the low profile aspect. Definitely not a sander to purchase if you only want to buy one belt sander.

Everything works well, except the belt tracking. I spend most of my sanding time trying to center the belt. I am afraid the unit will soon end up in the trash can.

This sander is a complete waste of time. If you need to do some serious sanding, that's when you need a belt sander. This one is not even close. The sanding belt doesn't track. It runs hot after a few minutes. And finally, after about 15 minutes of trying to remove paint from plywood, the rear tire tore off! If you need something to do light work, you don't need a belt sander, but you certainly don't need this sander anytime. It won't handle balsa wood. Spend the money. If you don't have the money, buy a good random orbit sander which is less than this junk. I ended up buying the Ridgid belt sander and it was expensive but worked great (nice machine). Lastly, be careful, Craftsman offers the same sander as this B&D but it's a different color and $10 more! Don't even consider this sander.

i am a remodeler and also own professional model sanders. i purchased the dragster in a pinch. it was the only sander in stock at my local home depot. i knew about tools trial period and expected to return the sander for lack of quality. i was suprised, the dragster is a keeper especially with its light weight and the close up sanding feature. i dont know how long it will run in heavy use but is worth the $70.

A pure consumer product that falls short of producing professional results. Important to experiment matching the sandpaper grit to the work. Hint: fine doesn't produce the result one expects from a belt sander. Relatively light, easy to use, but left me wishing I had paid more to get a stronger machine.

...because I can tell that I will just end up going back and getting a better brand and higher end model in the next year or two. This one does an OK job for must of the around the house / weekend warrior stuff. The ergonomics of the moveable handle as well as the fwd piece that moves up to allow tight spot sanding are very nice options. And I would have to say that for under $100 you would be hard pressed to find a better sander. But this sander will not stand up to a Porter Cable or DeWalt model that runs roughly $150. You would be better off shelling out the money... cause you always get what you pay for when talking about these companies.

I purchased this sander because I liked the features of the product. The sander has a very low profile that allows the user to get close the edge of a floor or another area where there is a right angle. However, during my first use I was disapointed to find that the lever that compresses the tension spring for the belt failed. I had to return the sander to a service center for repair the first day it was in use. It seems to me that the lever is made of poor quality material. Hopefully, the replacement will be made better. I think the design is great for a homeowner's basic needs.

I purchased this belt sander because of the design which looks good for my first project, sanding the deck and rails. After reading the reviews I felt a little concern because of the bad reviews but I decided to get it anyway cause of the good price. I was so wrong, from the first day that I tried using it, the freaking sanding belt kept coming out and I was just testing it by itself, no surface yet, it even burned the front corner when the belt moved. After adjusting it so many times to get the belt perfectly aligned I decided to give it a shot on my deck. Big mistake, after like few seconds of sanding the belt moved again and this time burned another side of the plastic cage. When you push it against the surface, it tends to get stuck, so not enough power to level the wooden surface.
I recommend to spend a little more and get a good tool. I'm planning to return this piece of junk and get a Dewalt or something else of better quality.
A side note, don't get tricked by Sears, they have the same tool but Craftsman, it is probably the same piece of junk.
