We put these two Sanders up against each other to duke it out. It seems as though the little guy works faster than the Mac Daddy drum sander, which could be due to the mechanics push/pull of the machine itself. Anway, have a look for yourself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ox-dQC4t47c&feature=youtu.be and let us known what you think in the comments section. Thank you for your time!

So neither machine has a variable speed feed?

And what about stock removal settings? Isn’t there some kind of indicator to show how much stock you want removed?

I don’t know how you can compare fairly unless you know how much stock you intend to remove. As for feed belt speed, I would assume that it’s the same.

Most widebelt sanders have variable feed speed, and digital thickness indicators.
You might want to invest in a real widebelt sander if you’re in production…

Both companies are Canadian no? Tariffs shouldn’t be a problem.

Would be nice to have a written review since most on here don’t click on self promoting YouTube channels.

Have your say...
