Customer Reviews for Black & Decker Black & Decker 3" x 18" Low Profile Belt Sander, BR318

Black & Decker Black & Decker 3" x 18" Low Profile Belt Sander, BR318

With its 6.0 amp motor, the Black & Decker 3" x 18" Belt Sander (Model# BR318) is a smart choice for rapid sanding. This Black & Decker Belt Sander has an angled belt design that allows it to sand two times closer to the edge of adjoining surfaces such as pieces of wood connected at corners or between floors and walls. Even as you move this Black & Decker Sander along different surfaces, the auto-belt tracking keeps the belt aligned regardless of your sanding angle. Vertical surfaces can also be smoothed out with the Black & Decker 3" x 18" Belt Sander (Model# BR318) thanks to its flush body design. The two handles make this Black & Decker Belt Sander easy and comfortable to use as you smooth out rough edges and surfaces. A dust bag collects the dust created by the Black & Decker 3" x 18" Belt Sander (Model# BR318) to make cleanup easy.

It's adequate for medium sized jobs or occassional use. The value for the cost is good. It does the job for which it was intended. I would recommend it in its price range.

Probably not for big construction jobs, but this is perfect for household projects.
The catch bag is a bit small and the vacuum function could be better. I used it for about two minutes in my living room and the whole house was filled with dust.
Other than that it does exactly what it's supposed to do. I was pleased that the belt doesn't slip to one side or the other as happens on many other models.

This product is very helpful. I live in an old house that is on blackland dirt which moves in a wet and dry climate. My doors will not open in certain weather, so I trim them to fit. This product is very good for that.

This is a power tool. I mean power. tool. So I hope you have some muscles or want to develop them! No seriously with this sander I was able to sand a table top with 2 leafs in less than 30 minutes. Something that I would not be able to do with an orbital sander. It does have a lot of power to it though so you need to be careful.

I like the unique Close Quarters Design, of this product. There are doubtless better quality sanders on the market, but this one is quite versatile and easy to use. Handles well and gets the job done.
