Hitachi SB8V2 3" x 21" Variable Speed Belt Sander
Hitachi makes the most powerful sander in this category, with a 9 amp motor but that’s not all this sander has going for it though. The variable speed isn’t in the trigger, but rather a separate control, which is accessible to your pinkie while sanding. The tracking is excellent, and the sander works extremely well for flush sanding up against a wall.
Like all of Hitachi’s tools, this is a very comfortable sander to work with thank to the rubber coated handles. It’s also easy to service with the brushes and the sanding belt is easily accessible. The dust collection system works extremely well too, making this sander a real winner.
