Bought this drum sander for my husband's retirement gift. He is very pleased with the performance and does exactly as described. Dust collection is awesome. Customer service was extremely efficient in helping me find the right choice for my husband!
I recently decided to buy this sander to replace my existing drum sander. I should have bought this one the first time. It works great. The intellifeed is very good. The digital readout is well worth the extra $. Changing paper is a snap. Takes 1/2 the time of my original sander. The infeed/out feed shelves add a great feature in handling the material. Overall I would rate it a 20 out of 10. Black Forrest was great inaccomdating me in buying and picking up the sander. I wish they were in Edmonton. Take my experience. Spend the extra $ and buy this sander.
This Drum Sander works as advertised, easy to use and maintain. I have pushed through 20" material which required rotation, for the most part works perfect. One cautionary note, if by chance the material is not 100% flat you can expect sanding lines - to be expected; otherwise, works like a charm.
Due to a mistake on my part, customer service was exceptional in rectifying the situation.
