Doing my local Craigslist search, and found a grizzly 24” drum sander for sale for $750 now it is in pretty nice condition with just some minor cosmetic issues. My question is does anyone have this sander and do you like it. Also how reasonable is paper for this unit in the way of cost to run time before replacement. Just looking for some insight.

I have a grizzly 24” 5 HP dual drum sander and love it.
I bought the sander used off of CL for $500.
It came with a few rolls of regular sandpaper. I soon switched to hook and loop paper.
The H&L paper runs cooler, so it lasts longer than traditional paper. I have not had any burn streaks left on the wood since converting to H&L either. the velcro makes paper installation much easier because you are not relying on the clips for all the holding power.
I was not too happy with the sander before the conversion, now I wouldn’t want to be without it.
Just my 2 cents.
