My other belt sander is a Bosch 3"x21" model that is much more refined, it's very easy to control and on large surfaces I run it one-handed quite frequently with no problems, there's no problem with heat and I never, I repeat NEVER have to adjust the Tracking!
Bottom line: I wish I had just saved my money. Because of the heat and tracking issues, I just really don't like using this sander, though It does look very cool on the shelf as a $119.00 paper weight.
UPDATE: I decided to try Mirka belts and was surprised to find that the tracking issues all but disappeared, AND, it doesn't seem to get as hot (perhaps because I haven't had to run it as long since the Mirka belts work as well as they do). I've come to the conclusion that Black & Decker companies don't make the best sandpaper. Switch to Mirka, I think you'll be pleased with the results.
come with a bag attachment, only a vacum hose port. I like to have the freedom of sharp quick movement, which a vacum hose hinders. It has good power and has fine balance.
My only gripe is that the belts are too expensive. But the model is brand new, and they'll get cheaper over time, with some more competition.
Bottom line - this tool is a great asset to any trim carpenter, but any woodworker, particularly for a one personfurniture making operation or Saturday handyman should buy a 3" x 21" belt sander first, then back it up with this one as you build your tool arsenal (or buy a 3" x 18" belt sander if you don't see yourself ever buying a second belt sander). Also be aware that Home Depot and Lowe's, as well as most brick and mortar retailers don't (yet) carry these new to market small sanding belts (even though they sell the sander itself). This means you will most likely have to get them on Amazon or the like, so you'll have to maintain a stock of belts to avoid having a project suddenly come to a standstill waiting for shipping turn-around times. Ultimately, you'll probably never regret owning any Porter Cable belt sander.
