A powerful sander from one of the powerhouses of power-tools. From Makita's newest hardware range, the 9403 Belt Sander is rated one of the quietest belt sanders in its class.

In testing, it certainly proved itself. A quiet option for those looking to protect those ears. Don’t be fooled though, still wear those ear-muffs. Safety first!

Our first thoughts when unboxing this Makita sander was the quality of construction and design. While a standard option for the home workshop, it appears sturdy and industrial grade.

In testing, we found it not only looked industrial grade but had one of the fastest speeds we encountered.

The cloth bag catcher was a fantastic inclusion, however better suited for smaller jobs. For larger jobs we found the attachment to work with certain sizes of vacuum attachments, however, this depends on your workshop set up and kit.

The Makita was also the first in testing we encountered that came with packs of different grit, giving you a nice starter pack to get used to your new sander and to bolster your home toolkit.

We found the large grip at the front of the machine to be fantastic and well molded. It provided great comfort and easy control over the sander in operation.

For full details, take a peek at the user manual.
