So, order an extra 50' of 60 grit and a few more clips right at the start.

No, but I would and did pick one up used for a few hundred and it is worth every penny.
Dustin Galofaro
Worse yet, the other end of the sandpaper is held on with duct tape(I kid you not).

A little trouble with the first shipment but could have been a ups issue. as far as the sander it works great. But expect a lot of set-up time. I probably spent a day on set-up but I'm very precise about my tools. Put casters on this bad boy, it weighs a lot. As far as sanding, it does an excellent job, super smooth after a couple of passes. Mine came with 60 and 100 grit paper on first and second drum, I changed it to 80/120 to get it ready for the random orbit sander for the final surface. Dust collection is not the best. I have it right beside my 1600cfm collector with 2 hoses, it gets the fine airbourne dust but leaves a lot on the wood and conveyor to fall off on the floor. The main thing this beast could use is some way of determining the set-up height. You have to push your wood in with the machine off and adjust by feel. It has plenty of power, never had it even grunt the least. The sandpaper attachment doesn't keep the paper tight enough for me so I spray the back of the sandpaper with contact adhesive just before rolling it on and then tape the ends with packing tape. I still have 24" of sanding because the rollers are about 25" to 25 1/2" long. I've had the machine for about six months and had no trouble. I find myself running everything through it from boards to gluded panels-(which I bought it for). Leaves edges square too. If your like me and can't justify a wide belt sander, I would recommend this powerful sander, and buy it again.

I bought this sander directly from Grizzly. It arrived promptly and was well packed. The myriad of adjustments described in the manual were not necessary because it arrived adjusted perfectly.

This is a crude and powerful sander that almost seems antique. I bought it to avoid purchase of a large planer for small home projects and got the cheapest available machine to save the cash. This is NOT a machine to consider for any commercial application.

There is no depth gauge and the cutoff switch is awkward. I put the power cord into an overhead socket so I can pull it if I got trapped in the feed tray. This is a relatively easy goof on this machine if you don't have a good feed table setup.

The major issue with this machine is keeping the 60 grit belt on the drum. Any feed angle misalignment or aggressive bite will throw the 9'6" belt into your trash bin. So, order an extra 50' of 60 grit and a few more clips right at the start.

BEFORE USE: REMOVE THE 60 GRIT BELT AND REINSTALL WITH CONTACT CEMENT. This machine will not work for more than a few passes without this "fix". You also need to check the belt every few passes to see if it has loosened up. This sounds like a terrible chore, but you get pretty quick at it and it's a snap compared to replacing the belt. The manual says two people are preferred to work on the belt, but I had no trouble with the spring loaded tensioner and the clip and I am old and a klutz.

I bought the machine to sand 24" countertops. It is very difficult to use the entire width. The belt tends to degrade near the clip. You need to plan ahead: sand small boards on old paper first (keep the work to the right as far as possible) and use new belts for the wide work and take minuscule bites.

I had all the usual problem every one else described with keeping the sandpaper on the drum. Other then that its a good machine.
Most of the other brands have Hook and Loop on the drums so I bought Adhesive backed "Hook" from McMaster Carr they also have the Felt backed paper as well as Woodmaster.
I wrapped the drums with the valcro the paper is a different width so I had to sort out the length and angle of the paper . now I don't need the retaining clip or the tape. I haven't had one problem sense. And I use the crap out of that machine. now its an amazing sander. It has a bigger motor than most other brands. I have stalled the 5 horse motor from time to time I don't know how that would even run with a 3 horse like most other brands.
I would buy this machine again, don't wast time spend the extra $100 and buy the Valcro It makes a world of difference.

Once you put Velcro (hook and loop) on the drum and take the time to set it up (adjustments), then it does an amazing job. Every woodworking shop should have one. Takes planer marks out effortlessly and leaves panels completely flat unlike hand sanding. Would I pay the price for this machine new? No, but I would and did pick one up used for a few hundred and it is worth every penny.

I bought this for a middle school woodshop class. I have several minor complaints but there is one fatal flaw with this thing. In order to attach the sandpaper you have to use a hammer to drive the first retaining clip onto the drum. The part the clip attaches to is spring loaded so when you hit it with the hammer it won't hold still and it damages the aluminum casting. The instructions say not to hit too hard or it will break the clip. They do give 2 extras but I lost one the first day when the sandpaper flew off. They should give you a few dozen. Worse yet, the other end of the sandpaper is held on with duct tape(I kid you not). As soon as the drum warms up from the friction, the duct tape loosens up an all hell breaks loose. If you put the wood in too far to the right it hits the duct tape, guess what happens?

I called the Grizzly customer service number and the guy told me that I was taking too large a cut. I was doing 1/8 of a turn, the manual says 1/4 turn. He also told me that the machine was not designed to thickness wood only to smooth the surface. I told him that I was only removing 3/32" total to remove the saw marks and he said that was too much and the machine would not remove saw marks. When I mentioned the fact that the duct tape comes loose when the drum warms up he said that the drum should not get warm. Apparently the guy never heard of friction. When I told him that he did not know what he was talking about he said he was not going to argue with me. I then hung up and will be sending it back ASAP.

This machine is a joke and the people at Grizzly appear to be ignorant when I comes to their own machines.

Don't buy this machine!
