The DeWalt Belt Sanders would be the best tool choice that aids the professional wood worker, the cabinet maker, a carpenter, stair installer, deck builder, a person who will dabble with Do it yourself jobs or a boat builder in all their sanding works. The Belt sander consists of an encased motor driving a circular belt, on which the sandpaper is completely stretched over firmly. The belt travels faster once the motor is turned on which helps the sand paper to move on.
The DeWALT belt sanders has power coupled with durability and has the unique 3 roller design to grant a better finish. The conventional designs from other manufacturer are 2 wheeled designs. What kind of impact does this design have? The design provides a better balance since the motors can be set to a lower limit. Here the motors are down between the rollers and directly over the platen. This lowers the centre of gravity creating a better balance and also a wonderful finish.
These belt sanders have a remarkable 3"×21'' platen and a patented automatic tracking lounge which is present on the top front roller. The long platen is smoothened ensuring maximum belt-to-material contact, while the tracking flange keeps the belt centered over the platen during sanding. A strong metal casing helps the tool to work without the user applying much pressure. This belt sander also uses a patented "break-away" dust bag which serves a better protection against accidental falling.
