2. Powermatic PM2244 Drum Sander

  • (14 Points)

I sanded a 14 inch wide board and the results were amazing. The motor adjusts from 0 to 10 fpm. It took maybe 15-20 minutes to have the sander up and running. But light cuts worked fine, no problems. I have found it to be excellent in every regard.

The fact is that the Jet 649004K was the 1-3/4 HP Motor Sanders that we graded most highly. That doesn't mean there aren't several other really great alternatives when it comes down to 1-3/4 HP Motor Sanders. We have them for you here.

Powermatic is another top manufacturer of Sanders. They produce the tool next on our lineup. Powermatic's Drum Sanders are among their leading offerings. It was fantastic to try the PM2244. I was very happy using this tool!

The model PM2244 Drum Sander by Powermatic, at $2699.99 is a particularly exceptional Sander for the price. The Powermatic PM2244 is truly a solid option. Of you are unsure about our number one choice, I'd suggest you select this Sander.
