If you’re looking for a high-powered handheld belt sander…

Look no further.

Powered by a powerful 12-amp motor, this belt sander carries the quality and power of an industrial belt sander.

The design features a main handle and auxiliary handle, and the belt design and guard make it easy to sand flush up to vertical surfaces.

The sander comes with a 100-grit sandpaper belt, along with a dust bag making it an easy plug and play sander ready to go from the box.

In testing, we found it easy to use. While not the lightest belt sander we tested, we found it glided well along the surfaces we were sanding and to keep in line for a perfect sanding.

The Porter-Cable sander comes with a variable speed knob along its main handle, making it easy to switch speeds during use. We also liked the nifty swivel feature on the dust collection bag, which helps you get it out of the way if you need a better view of your work area.

As with most modern belt sanders, it comes with a quick release lever, making it easy to switch out the grit.

In the workshop, we underestimated its power and found ourselves damaging a piece of soft-wood so it's not for the faint-hearted. When used correctly, for the right job, with the right grit it's the perfect sander.

This sander can handle any job.

Just make sure it’s properly set up for it.
