Nice and light, and the 4" width is great for leveling 4" wide lumber. Dust collection is better than average. I love the belt tracking adjustment and the variable speed. Slow speed is almost like hand blocking, high speed really takes off lots of material. I've had it about a year now. The other 4 X 24 belt sander that I have used is the Porter Cable 362, but it weighs 20 pounds and it's like sanding with a Buick. Don't even think about using the Porter Cable on a vertical surface. The makita weighs about 8 pounds I think. Only improvement would be to include a case, but none of the belt sanders that I looked at had a case. The 9404 is hard to find in stores, I had to order it from Tool Crib. You won't be dissapointed. If you want a really light and mobile sander, the 5 pound Makita 9911 can't be beat, but it uses 3X18 belts and I like the 4" width. Makita belt sanders seem quieter than most.

This unit is relatively quiet, and thanks to makita's efficient and powerful motors acts stronger than its amperage rating. Belts change quickly and easily, and variable speed control lets you select the best speed for the job. Another great feature is the 16' cord, allowing for maneuverability not found in most corded powertools. The dust bag is also removable. Works great. If you don't buy this, a Bosch should be your next choice.

Purchased this sander from Toolbarn after suffering with my old Dewalt DW433. The saw was delivered in a three days in excellent condition. This sander sounds ten times quieter than the Dewalt it replaced. Smoooth and powerfull. Excellent dust collection. Best belt sander I've every used - including several Porter Cables, which are much hearview and noisier.

I was shopping for the Porter Cable because I had borrowed a friends and loved it. But I started reading reviews, and this sounded like a nicer sander for the same price. This sander is light and quiet, but really does the job. The dust collector is awesome. The bag might be a little bit in the way for some people, but it does not bother me. I had to flatten 9 panels I had glued up and this did quick work, running continuously for almost 2 hours. I'm very happy with this purchase.

This beast does everything I want it to do & does it better than my last one which was not variable speed. Belt changes are a piece of cake, belt adjustment is intuitive & simple. Once the belt is adjusted it STAYS adjusted. First class tool. I've used it almost daily now for over a year & have had no problems.

This belt sander replaces a 25 year old craftsman sander that no longer tracked. I am satisfied with its rate of speeds and obtaining a flat surface quickly. I have a Byrd Head on my jointer so does not need to do much for a smooth surface with wild grained woods. I follow with a random orbital sander before hand sanding and then finishing.

If only all Makita tools were this good - they used to be. But don't buy Makita belts, they burst quickly as soon as they warm up in my experience. Get high quality ones from a professional toolshop.

This sander has gotten a real workout here. I've had it about a year and have used it on several workshop projects making bookcases with solid wood. I've been using red elm, sassafras, hickory, and some yellow pine, and it makes quick work of flattening and removing some bad surface defects. The dust collection bag works very well, but connected to the shopvac very little dust escapes. Although this thing is much lighter than the P-C sander, I still wouldn't want use it overhead as some reviewers have. It has plenty of power and hasn't bogged down for me on any project, and it has a nice long powercord, so I've never had to use it with an extension cord.
