5.0 out of 5 stars A serious tool for any woodworker. June 29 2014
Verified Purchase
There are toys and there are tools. This Hitachi sander is a serious tool. I've used it for more than 60 hours now and consider it to be a top choice. It features a powerful motor and offers excellent dust pickup. The sanding belts generally stay centered and I go through far fewer belts using this sander than was my experience with other manufacturers. The ability of this sander to do heavy duty stripping is excellent. I'd purchase this model again in a heartbeat.

easy to change betls and ajust. The bag works the machine pick up most of the dust. The last belt sander I used the bag was useless, and the belt was hard to adjust.

Really like the variable speed and power of the sander. Only problem I have encountered so far is that depending on how much pressure you place on the piece being sanded is that the belt tracking has to readjusted during the sanding process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mid sized belt sander April 26 2010
By Just a regualr guy - Published on Amazon.com
I love this mid sized belt sander. I am a contractor so I know about tools. Every tool has a specific purpose and this sander fits in perfectly for what I need it to do. 9 amps is allot of power for a sander and thankfully this one has the variable speed. The variable speed switch is nicely located so that you can adjust the speed with your pinky finger while not taking your hands off the sander. The weight of this machine was actually less than what I was expecting. I have a larger 12 amp Bosch sander and was expecting this belt sander to weigh in closer to that, but it doesn't. This sander actually feels much lighter than the Porter Cable 352VS that this Hitachi is replacing. (On a side note, why is all of my loved Porter Cable tools turning into junk? Hopefully now that Stanely owns PC it will go back to normal.)This sander is made in Malaysia so it is not the norm China junk. The rubber grips are nice, belt tracking stays put for about forever, and the bushings are simple to replace, as it is on most Hitachi tools.
This is only my 2nd Hitachi tool, besides air nailers which is a given if you buy PRO grade tools. All of my cordless tools are Milwaukee, and then everything with a cord is either Milwaukee, Porter Cable, Bosch, and Makita. I have not owned any Black & Decker or Craftsman tools since I was a kid (yes, those are kid tools and should never be purchased except Craftsman for mechanics tools. The other reviewers of this tool I would disregard! I did read their reviews before deciding to purchase this sander. One complaint was that the motor was on the left side. Are you kidding me??? The reason why the dust collection is on the left side is to allow you to actually sand right up against something at a 90 degree angle! That is what a belt sander should do, it is a requirement, and it is more expensive to configure that tool to do so. Another person complained about the fact that this excellent sander will not fit under kitchen cabinets. Again, please disregard. If you buy a larger mid sized sander, which this is, it is because you need to do some quick heavy sanding. You should have other sanders for getting into small tight spots because larger sanders will not fit there because they are big and powerful. This is why I have a 1/4 sheet Bosch sander, a 5" random orbital Milwaukee, the small hand held Porter Cable belt sander, this Hitachi, and my larger Bosch belt sander. Buy a specific tool to do a specific job, learn how to use the tool to the fullest of its capabilities, buy the highest quality tools,and you will end up with professional results. With the fact that this belt sander has easily replaceable brushes lets me know, as a pro, that I can keep this sander running for years without much downtime. I wish other manufacturers would be so thoughtful as this.
Oh ya, one more thing. The dust collection actually works on this belt sander! This belt sander is a steal for under $200! Sorry about the rant but I hate it when someone gives a great tool a low star because they bought something without thinking about it first. I was reading the reviews on nail guns and can you believe that a guy gave a framing nailer a one star because he was angry at the fact that the nailer would not work without being hooked up to an air compressor! Maybe he has bought some tools in the past that run on pixie dust but my need either electric, batteries, gas, or air in order to perform their function. So if you need a larger mid sized belt sander, this one works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitachi SB8V2 3X21 Belt Sander Review Oct. 28 2011
By Michael P - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I put this sander to work immediately, as I wore out my previous sander (B&D) in the middle of a project and had borrowed a friend's Skil. This sander is awesome. The tracking was very stable, requiring only an occasional tweak (Nice Knob). Belts were easy to replace with the handy lever. The dust collection was very impressive for a belt sander, picking up almost all the dust. My only minor complaint is that I had to empty the bag often, and if I waited too long, I had to dig the sanding dust out with a spoon.

I found it easy to control, and it seemed well balanced. The speed control was in a good location, easy (but not too easy) to reach. Plenty of power and a long cord. This sander removed more material faster than either my Black & Decker or the Skil that I borrowed. The price was right, and I got free, quick shipping. What more could I ask for. I love it!Hitachi SB8V2 3-Inch-by-21-Inch Variable Speed Belt Sander

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality, Poor Design May 5 2014
By Adam G - Published on Amazon.com
I love my power tools, but I am not a brand snob. When it comes to doing projects, I just want the best tool for the job. I don't care if it's yellow, green, blue, orange, whatever. I read some great reviews on this belt sander, and I have been happy with other Hitachi power tools in my shop.

Unfortunately, this particular tool did not work for me. It's weighted to the left, and caused some obvious gouging when I was not very careful about holding it perfectly flat with any surface I was working on. The dust collection was ok, but I was disappointed that it wasn't better. I also did not like that I could not put it in a clamp upside down and use it to sand small pieces. The build quality was top notch, but the engineering was poor.

I really wanted to like this sander, and was surprised that I was so eager to take it back to the big Blue box store I bought it from. I ended up buying the Makita 9903, which is a far superior product. It's perfectly weighted, the dust collection is so good that I don't even use a mask when sanding with it (seriously, zero dust), and I can clamp it upside down to sand small pieces. Both sanders had similar power to them, but I spent too much time trying to sand out the gouges made by the Hitachi, and it just wasn't the right tool for the job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well built sander. March 29 2014
By evga - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a fairly heavy and well built sander, weighing in at around 9 pounds. The bag collects most of the dust, but not all. The belt tracks true, no wandering. Once the belt is installed, set the tracking and it stays set. I've noticed some uneven contact with the surface, but I'm using it overhead, sanding some house siding, so the issue may be the way I'm holding the machine over my head. I haven't tried the sander on a flat level surface. The best part of this machine is the belt installation lever. Pull the lever back, install the belt, move the lever forward. Very simple, quick, and easy. Very nice!
