    Comments about 1-1/8 in. x 21 in. Belt Sander:

    I have owned the 9030 model (non-variable speed type)but otherwise identical for about 20 years. I keep finding new ways to use it to accomplish jobs that other tools just can't do. The 9031 variable speed tool is even more versatile, as you can slow it down for less aggressive cutting or cooler sanding of plastics that may melt at higher speeds.
    My only quibble with the tool is the motor fan blows sanding dust in my face. I am left handed and it may not be an issue for right handed users.
    If mine ever wears out I will buy the VS model.

    It IS The Best

    By Carleton The Doorman

    from Big Bear Lake, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about 1-1/8 in. x 21 in. Belt Sander:

    I was introduced to this wonderful, little, wood- eating beast, while doing "log work" at a hotel remodel in Big Bear Lake, CA. At first glance, I thought this skinny sander to be a "toy" compared to my Makita 3x24" belt sander, I'd used for years... Well, I quickly learned the versatility of this tool; from "skinning" the bark off logs, to fitting the end of one log to the "round" of another... the uses for this quiet, light sander just seemed to multiply! As a sad (but true) further endorsement... these "1 inch Makitas" disappeared from the job-site at an alarming rate!

      Can the handle that is at the front of the belt sander be removed to access tight spaces?

        The handle in front can be moved up and down for a more comfortable position. It appears the handle could be removed because pictures show it being held on with a nut.

        Yes. I removed mine and left it that way.

        The handle in front can be moved up and down for a more comfortable position. It appears the handle could be removed because pictures show it being held on with a nut. However, if you removed the handle, you would have no control of the sander.

    Warranty Information

    Makita Standard Warranty

    The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

    If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

    This Warranty does not apply where:
    • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
    • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
    • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
    • Alterations have been made to the tool
    In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
