Model BR318 - Review

Black and Decker Belt Sander Side View Pros Cons
  • Lightweight and easy to handle
  • It really can get closer to vertical surfaces from the side
  • Belt angle also allows for better visibility of work
  • Is a good belt sander for around the house
  • Trigger lock on is only on one side...for righty's
  • It would be nice to see less plastic construction
  • The dust bag is almost pointless

Our Conclusion

There are quite a few lower end belt sanders on the market today...and we are not going to lie...this is one of them.

There is very little metal put into the construction of this particular model.

The base is a cast aluminum...the rest though...well I think you get the picture...plastic!

I'm not saying it won't do the job for you...but buy according to your needs.

If durability and solid construction are what your looking for...you may want to move on to something else.

Although there are several 5 star reviews of this product on Amazon...take it for what it's worth.

I think this would make a good belt sander for around the house.
