Our 18" Variable Speed Open-End Drum Sander offers a lot of versatility and a huge sanding capacity in a small amount of floor space. Sand stock up to 36" wide and 4-1/2" thick! Unlike other open-end drum sanders, the table moves up and down instead of the head, meaning the drum support is much more rigid during sanding operations, giving you more consistent results. Add that to the precision control of the electronic variable-speed conveyor and the dual speed sanding drum, and you'll agree that this feature-packed sander is an incredible value!

Not what I expected from Grizzly. Low power causes drum to stop under light load. Difficultly keeping conveyor belt running straight. Was not true from factory and took a lot of time and multiple adjustments to get set. Still needs adjustment periodically. With anything there is a learning process and I am getting there. Machine does work well and has good dust collection ability.

I finally received my unit after it had been on back order for several months. When I opened the box and prepared to assemble the unit, I soon discovered that there was no hardware package included with the unit. I contacted customer service and the agent I spoke to said he would get the required hardware out to me right away. I received a box from Grizzly a few days later with enough hardware to assemble the base of the unit, and with the help of a friend, I was able to lift the unit onto the base and bolt it down. When I tried to attach the adjusting wheel to the unit, I discovered the bolt that I was sent was to large. I again contacted Grizzly customer service, and informed them of my problem. I gave them the part numbers I needed, from the units owners manual. A few days later I received another box, that contained the same over sized bolt that I had received before, that did not fit. At this time I adapted hardware that I had to make final assembly. I really like the unit, and it does a great job, but I am rather disappointed with the support. It is sad when you can not supply the correct parts, even after I provided the correct part number, straight out of the owners manual.

Get what expected of price. 8/22/2018

Usual problems with overseas products, loose bolts and improper factory adjustments. Feed belt had no more adjustment on right side and belt still tracking to right. So tight on right side it bent the bracket and wore out bushings in about 2 hours use. Flipped bracket with bushing over 180* to wear on good side. Found bushing cracked in two places. Called to order more bushings under warranty. Parts on order, not in stock. Will need to take time at some point to modify this machine with bearings instead of brass bushings and do some realigning of feed motor and rollers. No way this belt should be this tight to track correctly.

I chose this machine because of the ability to do 4" thickness. The price was good so I think once I do some modifications to this machine it will perform absolutely great.
If you have the patience and ability to perform modifications, repairs and adjustments to machinery, it is a good buy. If not spend more $ and buy American made. If you don't need 4" capability there are many other machines to consider.

This review is based on the experience with my machine. If not for the problems encountered maybe due to a Monday morning bad employee at the factory, this machine would get an excellent review.


This is just what I wanted, Does a wonderfull job.

Product looks great. Have not used it much so far but have been happy with any product from grizzly 8/19/2018

Purchased almost a year ago. 7/25/2018

Have been using for almost a year now. Only problem I am having is keeping the feed belt/pad in-line. It was off a hair out of the box. Now, I'm 99% sure it is my fault where it is at now. I have been adjusting on the fly, I have not taken the time to adjust it properly, been too busy. Even with me, the sander is working great. A must get if you are running any flat pieces. If I get it adjusted with out taking engineering classes I'll bump it to 5 stars.
