A couple issues that I have ran into so far. Overall though the sander is a great machine for the price. When placing a board in the machine. You won't know its on until you start sanding. The 4 inch ones roll much better.

It's true that the Grizzly Industrial G0775 was the 2 HP Motor Sanders that we graded at the top. With that said, there are a number of other fantastic selections when it comes to 2 HP Motor Sanders. We have a breakdown of them here.

The motor is slightly overkill, but I like that. The disc sander housing was very rough and chipped. But the sander is cheap, so I didn't expect much. The disc has no visible run out on my unit and sands smoothly. Not as heavily made as my old one, but is worth the money.
