Makita Belt Sanders are powerful tools that can grind through the most difficult materials. These are great for beginning the sanding process of smoothing decks, porches, floors and many other surfaces. Even with their strong motors and fast belt speeds, these sanders are some of the quietest on the market. This is due to a unique design that reduces vibration and noise while at the same time promoting comfort and ergonomics. If you get the correct grit for your Makita Belt Sander, eating through large amounts of wood, metal and plastic will be an effortless process.
