    Only problem found was a warped steel base leaving one foot pad 1/4 off the table.

    The shroud around the disc was rubbing on the disk and i had to adjust and re-set some parts to get the alignment set properly.

    Also the dust catcher is very ineffective.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Very low horse power; the motor winds down quickly when leaning into heaving sanding jobs running the risk of burning out the motor.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The motor is not a totally enclosed (sealed) motor, so allowing dust to accumulated under the vented casing can cause flash dust combustion which will fry the motor.

    Search powertec bd4800 parts for a $77 replacement motor if you make this mistake like one of us did.

    The idle drum (free-spinning end drum for the belt) has a carbon bushing instead of a ball bearing.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    You *can* install the porter cable 4 x 8 idle drum (see photo) which has spinning bearing on this model to avoid this issue.
