Hitachi SB8V2 3" Belt Sander 230V is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Bought and Returned Replaced it with the more expensive Makita I was undecided when I bought this Hitachi. I went for the price after having a van load of tools stollen. I literally turned it on a realised it was rubbish more diy. The unit doesn't feel balanced weighted more on the left hand side theres no weight over the belt which meant it bounced around. A 75mm belt isn't great , and a 1meter cord whats the point I moved sideways and it unplugged itself annoying. if your a professional get the Makita Sorry Hitachi not great. Plus points I did use it for a minute or two it did seem to remove a lot of stock material. but It would be folly to keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Ergonomically Designed Sander I was surprised at the weight of this sander, 10 lbs (4.5kg) compared to my old Argos Power Devil brand DIY belt sander which weighed in at 7 lbs. However this is probably typical of pro-tools because they are sturdier and built with heavier component parts. The added weight means that the sander can do it's job under its own weight without requiring additional pressure, so this lessens operator fatigue if a lot of sanding has to be done on e.g. a floor. The tool has good sized non slip hand grips which are comfortable to hold and the power trigger has nice positive action. Tracking is good and there was no drifting outwards/inwards of the belt. The sander is rated at 1020 watts. My power adaptor showed it taking 570 watts on no load rising to over 1020 watts on load so probably only about 500 watts is available as useful power, the rest being converted to heat This however is probably typical of the universal motors in power tools. Other reviewers complained about the short power lead. The cord on my sander was 2.25m long so maybe Hitachi took note and changed this! I don't usually a dust bag on power tools, however the bag and fan were very efficient, with minimal dust blown into the air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the money After much searching through many reviews on the net I finally decided on this Hitachi belt sander. First impressions are it feels like a good piece of kit, solid and appears to be well built. I haven't had much opportunity yet to proprerly test it but I am sure it will cut the mustard. One thing I would have liked is for the sander to have a profile where it could be clamped upside down on a bench. I was able to do this with my old sander. Also, to provide only one sanding belt seems a little mean. Having said that I am looking forward to using this sander for many years. Screwfix have once again delivered on the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Belting sander Been using belt sanders for years and have usually bought Makita tools. Had a few problems with Makita recently, poor products and poor service so have decided to switch to Hitachi. Bought a Hitachi SDS drill recently and was so pleased bought this sander. It did an old 12sq yard T&G floor easily, as good as any of my Makita sanders. The shortish lead wasnt really an issue but I found the belts need tracking so they overhang the machine by a couple of mm and a hard case would have been nice Really pleased with its performance and pleased I have found a product that in my view is as good as Makita but far cheaper....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sander, short cable This tool inspires confidence. I've had a couple of economy brand belt sanders in the bast and both broke quickly. This is heavily built, the belt tracking works perfectly, & loads of power. The slighty off-centre mass means you need to take account of that when sanding, so as not to take more off one edge than the other. - That's easy enough with a little feel for the tool. The power lead is too short. Recommended in all other respects

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sander but... This seems like a good sander, however it's got a few let downs. The mains lead is very short to the pointy you will need to keep dragging the extension lead with you as you move around a 1m radius which get tedious for big spaces. Real shame about the lack of tool box or bag to keep the tool in once done. And the plastic window has no value at all. Apart from that it seems to do the job (although it does get hot). Not sure about reliability yet hence the 3 stars

Rated 3 out of 5 by from hitachi 4" belt sander Look. I purchased this item and took it straight back. We are usually Makita all day every day but i just fancied a change. The manufacturing quality just terrified me. It was very not good. I also returned the power planer for the same reasons. Ive been in my game for over twenty five years and i know when something just aint right. So i got the makita belt sander, and the planer. If it aint broke dont fix it. However, i just bought the hitachi gas framing gun and the finishing gun. Excellent
