A powerful 12.0 amp motor provides 20% more power than before, while a motor is located over platen for maximum performance and perfect balance. The belt and gear drive system transfers power from the motor to the sanding belt. A belt speed of 1,500SFM allows for rapid stock removal with the help of a quick-release belt-change lever. A fingertip belt-tracking knob for quick, accurate belt adjustments. The large capacity dust collection bag swivels 360� so it's never in the way during sanding.
