I have found that most 110V tools do last longer than their 230V cousins, not sure why as the motor will be pulling nearly twice the current for a given power but at proportially less voltage. Could it be that the OEM knows they will be used by the trade for site work and have better quality control.Makita 9404.
A proper solid tool. I have had a 110v one for 20 years and it still works fine (bit noisy now) .
Hey Bob that is so kind of you to offer, I'll get measured up and see if it will fit in the car and get in touch..how big is the table top, get it to my workshop in Matching Green and i'll put it through my speedsander if it fits, 960mm wide max. Cost = some buscuits for the lads in the shop?
I bought a Mac Allister belt sander 20 years ago from B&Q. It weighs a ton, is still going strong and replacement belts are still available from B&Q. Maybe I was just lucky.I'm after a a belt sander for a dining table top I've glued up.
But I won't be using it again for while so just asking if anyone has experience with the screwfix mac alister or worth upgrading to a bosch?
Any help appreciated
