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.

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.

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.

The variable speed model may have smaller motor, but it is plenty for the casual home shop. The variable speed control is great for initial contacts with surfaces to be sanded. I start slow and judge results, before increasing speed. At lowest speeds no hearing protection is required.

Flat top allows sander to be operated upside down for small part touch ups. There are a couple of threaded holes available if you want to engineer a fence for safer upside down operation.

Belts track well and once adjusted don't wander.

Catch bag gathers a surprising amount of dust.

Cord is very long.

I researched this sander extremely well and frankly I did not think it would fit my needs. I owned a Makita 9401 for 27 years without so much as a hesitation from the machine. I am a finish carpenter and use my sanders constantly. I had become accustomed to the 9401 and how to best handle it to make up for its drawbacks. The new 9404 did not fit the bill as far as I was concerned but I had had such good luck with 9401's longevity I decided to try it anyway. When I received it I tried every scenario i could think of and decided to send it back The main drawback was that the exhaust and collection bag had moved from the right side to the left side. I also did not like the new handle configuration. Both of these drawbacks could have been overcome when using the machine for straight smoothing of boards on a pair of sawhorses or other such work surface but as far as I was concerned they would completely work against a person when he attempts to use the machine in a freehand situation such as sanding cabinet doors edges when they were laid flat. In other words when using the sander as it is rolled on its side or in position that requires a person to fight the dust bag to hold the sander or see the sanding line. I was completely right. However, I decided to keep the sander anyway. First I was in a bind time wise and second I was at a lose to find any other manufacturer that had not adopted the same or worse position for the exhaust. As I used the sander I found it's weight to be extremely advantageous. It was almost five pounds lighter than my previous unit. The new placement of the handles was not as big a hurdle as I had anticipated and the noise level had dropped significantly from the 9401.Read more ›
