Another sander from one of the world’s largest hardware manufacturers, the SB8V2 from Hitachi is another high-quality sander option for your home workshop.

The Hitachi boasts user-friendly design features and technology to get the best out of your sander. One of our favorite features in testing is the elastomer grip surface on the two handles, which made it comfortable to hold and gave us the best grip on the machine.

The Hitachi comes with a tracking window, giving you great visibility of the surface you’re sanding. It also comes with a mounted dust collection bag, helping you keep your work area nice and clean.

We were impressed with the variable speed dial, giving us a diversity of applications and ensuring we could complete our job efficiently and correctly without compromising quality.

We were impressed at how light the SB8V2 sander was. We found it was efficient in removing paint from our test wood stock and our test deck.

We found the Hitachi to be robust and has a solid construction. The dust bag size is great and catches most of the waste during a typical woodworking session. We were also impressed with the speed of the belt, which we found met the promises from the manufacturers.

The owners manual can be found here.
