Handy and tough.

I am on my second one now. The first one lasted about ten years of almost daily use. Can be used with one hand and is therefore great for rounding corners and shaping things, or sanding vertical edges.
The second one has been with me for 3 years, but has not been as good. At first it was kind of not as smooth as the old one, and felt a bit rough or poorly made. That kind of wore off a bit with use (suppose I should have returned it). Also the belt tension is not great as sometimes if I press a bit harder the belt stops while the drive wheel just slips.
I was extremely happy with my first one and a bit disappointed with my second.

I was persuaded to buy this when my Bosch broke. I compared the new Bosch PBS 75 A and this Makita. The Makita has a smaller sanding area, 3″×5½″, whereas the Bosch has 3″×6½″. I found the position of the handles makes a difference. The Bosch handles are in front and behind the sander and the Makita handles are above the sander. As a result if you try to move the sander sideways the Bosch is not as prone to rocking and digging a hole as the Makita. If you want to work in a confined space the Bosch handles are in the way. I agree with other reviewers that this sander works well.

Great sander, but with some slight frustrations

I've used mine for plaster walls, ceilings and woodwork. It was carefully chosen because it needed to be fairly light weight and use easily available belts. It works well, and I've never got anywhere near its highest speed because it would be simply too aggressive. On slow speed there is finesse I wasn't expecting in a belt sander. There are niggles: (1.) I'm a leftie, too, like Jean above, and a bit fed up with lock buttons on the 'wrong' side. That's no fun up a ladder. (2.) If you change the orientation on vertical surfaces, you may need to keep a crosshead screwdriver handy, to adjust the tracking - I've had belts start to walk off the machine unexpectedly. (3.) There doesn't seem to be a manual tension adjustment, and stiffer belts with coarse grit can abrade the plastics of the case - there isn't much clearance round the back or the rollers either end. This surprised me but doesn't seem to affect performance. (4.) Hose dust extraction I find essential, as the bag doesn't hold much and lets fine particles through. (5.) You should be able to get both a sanding frame/shoe and bench clamps as accessories, but they're like rocking horse stuff, and absurdly expensive given what they are (never actually seen the clamps anywhere although the manual mentions them). Finally some good points: It's low enough power consumption to work from the PTO of my shop vacuum - this really helps on the aforementioned ladders! It also runs cool, and behaves as if it would go all day without breaking sweat, and it's not absurdly noisy. I looked at the pro Makita belt sanders and reluctantly decided I couldn't afford one. In any case there are a lot of circumstances where a lot of weight isn't actually helpful (e.g. working upside down!). This is an excellent second best to the bigger beasts, and the issues listed above don't stop it being very, very useful. Overall I'm extremely pleased I bought it.

makita 9911 sander

Bought this to replace a bosch belt sander which after many years of service finally cremated itself.I also have a makita drill so I know they are good quality.
Have used this sander to clean up 50 year old door frames,could have took ages,done in 2 hrs.Is brutal at max speed with a coarse belt to gentle at slower speed with a fine belt so good control can be achieved.Is relatively quiet,bosch one used to make my ears bleed,well nearly.Dust bag pants and gets in the way,tape it to your hoover.
All in all good sander.
