Describe Yourself:
Very Poor Dust Collection Bag Design
I have used Porter Cable tools for over 25 years. My old PC 3x24 503 Belt Sander gave up after 18 years. Trying to find a replacement has been exhausting. Tried this model. The sander may be good but the design of the dust bag is just plain terrible. With out wrapping duct tape around the attached area the dust just goes everywhere but in the bag. Not a good design!

powerful sander but
Ordered from picture but sent different one. If sanding vertically dust blows up into your face.

Great sander
All around it is a good heavy duty belt sander. It is heavy but that makes it easer to sand flat objects. Tracks well and has plenty of power. Variable speed is nice. Dust bag works well. Only con is that if you are doing any vertical work and you shut it off and then restart, it will shoot dust out of the dust collection fan into your eyes if your not carfull. Other than that it is a quality belt sander.

My company uses silicon carbide belts rather than ceramic/ aluminum oxide belts will this matter?
None on Oct 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No, that will not make a difference. The zirconium belt is only what is included with the product, but it is not required.
