Built to the scale and level of quality professional woodworkers and metalworkers demand, this heavy-duty sander features a 6" x 48" sanding belt that operates horizontally, vertically or at any angle in between. Both tables tilt for any job. The convenient, quick-release lever makes belt changes and tension adjustment a snap.

Bigger than I expected, but I like it! 04/17/2019 3:01:06 PM

I knew it was 145 pounds, but when it arrives, you realize how big and heavy it really is. My 2-car garage only has 2 circuits, a 220 and a single 110. With lights on and the dust collector running, the sander would pop the 110 circuit breaker every time. Rewiring the sander for 220 is fairly easy, and solved that problem. I've had the chance to use it few times and it works great! Without the dust collector running, it'll fill the garage with dust in no time. It'll remove a lot of material (hardwood), fairly quickly, and the motor doesn't bog down at all. It does make some noise tooI I spent some time adjusting the tables so they were square to the sanding surface. Also, I did have problems with the belt not tracking properly, and the quick release is very touchy. A small nudge in either direction will cause the belt to track to one side or the other. I noticed the belt that came with it was stretched a little in the center, and I'm hoping thats the problem. I bought some new ones (a couple different brands), haven't had a chance to try them, but hopefully that solves the tracking problem. To be fair, I'd say this thing is overkill for the occasional hobbyist, which I sort of am, but I do like it. This is my second Grizzly tool, and I'm impressed by the overall quality. If your looking for a HD sander, I'd recommend it.

I really pleased with the sander, and have wanted one the quality of the Grizzly sander. However, for the approximately $1,000 I paid for it, I was shocked by the cheap plastic miter gauge that came with it. It was so cheap, Harbor Freight would be ashamed to sell it.

Having trouble keeping the belt adjusted so it runes true. Other than this it is a great sander.

It's a beast. 11/17/2017 9:37:12 PM

I have already ground enough metal to have worn out a belt on my 4 x36 belt grinder and belt isn't worn. I would buy this again. No regrets at all.

Best sander iv used! 09/17/2017 1:28:04 PM

I bought this sander used on C list abused and broken. Fixed the broken parts and its used now every day for hrs on end for 2.5 years now, on steel parts. Great tool. I will be buying another 2 of them.

Missing a very important part 09/06/2017 3:50:04 PM

This sander is great but can't be used at the moment. Need graphite tape under the belt. Otherwise it warps the belt. Waiting on a Kingsport delivery. Otherwise a good product.

Solid Sander 01/26/2017 4:39:27 PM

I'd give it 5 stars if it weren't for the odd 3" dust port on the belt.

Workhorse of my shop! 04/03/2016 1:48:15 PM

Actually I have had this for about 10 years! I think I use this belt / disc sander more than any other machine in my fully tricked out metal shop. No matter what other machine I use, lathes, mill or drill press the part almost always goes to the Grizzly G1183 sander. Built tough. Only had two problems with it. One, on the switch it is not totally enclosed so aluminum/steel "dust" got into it and it let out evil smoke lurking inside. Easily replaced. Now, and like I said it's been awhile since new, my motor capacitor went on me so I am ordering a replacement today. Well worth the money.
