This is thing is the best. Use if for large surfacing and thickness. Works great. What a time saver.

I already own several Grizzly tools. I love every one including my recent tool the 24" Drum sander. I am looking forward to my next Grizzly tool I need on my road to a fist class wood shop!

I have been struggling with sanding large surface areas for a long time. This is such a pleasure to use and REALLY cuts down the sanding time for large projects

I am extremely pleased with this sander. This is my 3rd Grizzly power tool and I will be adding more in the future. It has plenty of power and was easy to set up. Only complaint wound be dust collection. The thicker the stock, the more dust that remains on the belt. My dust collector is 1700cfm. I would like to try a bigger one to see if that would help. Either way, it is well worth the price and I am very satisfied.

Excellent Machine 10/22/2018 7:52:55 PM

Heavy duty design everywhere it needs to be. This machine is very solid.
I have found the ammeter to be useful. I double checked calibration with a precision clamp on meter and found it to be within amp.
Machine was very well aligned right out of the box. I did tweak it just a very little and cannot measure any significant error over the entire 24 width of the sander.
I was a little worried that the hook and loop sand paper would be too spongy but so far have not seen any adverse effects.
Thickness indicator is pretty much useless other to get you into the ball park.
The guards over the ends of the conveyer rollers are a very flimsy, poor design and are not consistent with the overall quality of the rest of the machine.
The thickness adjustment crank handle is located directly next to the upper dust hood and interferes slightly with the opening of the hood.
The positives of this machine far outweigh the slight negative aspects. Ive used the sander a little over a month and have been very pleased with the performance.
Excellent value compared to all other drum and wide belt sanders I looked at.

This is a tough machine! 06/05/2018 4:07:04 AM

Going on 3yrs with this machine now. Had a small bearing problem early on but Grizzly tech services sent out a new set free and quick. The 5hp motor is all the power youll ever need. Its nice to have machines with power to spare. The amp meter I find to be a gimmick and not useable but the machine is great unit. I cant find any negatives to list. This machine just works as it should. Highly recommended!

Very nice machine! 04/01/2018 12:41:33 PM

My first experience with a drum sander in my shop and now I wonder why I waited so long. Perfect results in a fraction of the time. This is a high quality machine with adjustable feed rates and easy to monitor load indicator.

Drum Sander 12/16/2017 2:37:55 PM

Happy I bought this machine. The variable speed option is incredibly helpful. Box came damaged but the machine was intact. The meter was broken out and some glue was a quick fix. Solid machine. slightly disappointed that it said 220v but I had to have another outlet and breakers run to operate it. That took me by surprise. But overall incredibly happy with the purchase and look forward to helping our students sand faster.

For the price you can't beat this sander. All other 24" sanders at a comparable price are single drum not dual and NOT industrial grade. This unit is a great little sander! Only if Grizzly could get their crate and packaging better it would be a 5-star a pallet made from a couple 2x4's & some old fence pickets with some cardboard over the top doesn't quite cut it.
