Belt sanders allow surfaces to be roughed out before undertaking more precise operations such as finishing. The width of the sandpaper varies between 75 and 100 mm for work in confined or open spaces. Most workshop belt sanders are now equipped with a tensioning system for quick tool replacement and use, and the ergonomic handle on the top allows you to work at precise and specific angles.
Industrial belt sanders have an estimated power rating of between 650 and 950 watts. To improve the quality of work, various ancillaries are available. Many belt sanders offer variable electronic speed control of 200–400 meters per minute.
