Topic tags/keywords: drum sanders

I am getting ready to purchase a 22-44 open ended drum sander just looking for some feedback. I have narrowed my choices down to the new Powermatic, The Super Max, or the Jet. A question about the Jet. They offer the Jet 22-44 in a pro model which comes with a 3hp motor as opposed to the standard 1 1/2 hp on all the other models. The price point on all three sanders is similar while the Jet pro model is a few hundred dollars more. Is the extra hp on the Jet pro model worth it. I am not a production shop, furniture building is a little part time job that I enjoy. Any feed back would be appreciated.

Get the hp. You won’t regret it. Thickness
sanders are an application where you really
want it as it is possible to stall a lower hp
motor with a thickness sander.
