Excellent value and decent build. This thing is a beast

A whopping 940W sander that makes the lights dim when you turn it on. This is the Makita MT series which I think is their budget range. At half the price I'll be happy if it lasts as long. I'm not a tradie so I look after my stuff and don't throw them around. Its a single speed which means the speed variator won't get jammed and stop working.

Great value for money

For around $150, there is no other 4 inch belt sander on the market in this price range that can touch this if your using 60 grit or finer.
I have this connected to an el-cheapo Karcher vac and get near zero dust.
No pressure required. The weight of this beast does all the hard work for you.
The cord could be longer but 9 times out of 10 and extension lead is required regardless.
Never needed variable speed on a belt sander so no issue for me not having it.
2 year warranty.
Buy one. you won't regret it Show details

Beast of a belt sander

Cant believe what i have been able to do with this machine. For the price i thought it might get me through 1 job.... But 245m2 later of full deck sand backs ( very hard on machine). Its still going strong. It heavy, cant sand to edge but bang for buck....flipping great. Show details

Makita 9400G - One of the Best Belt Sanders Around And Built to Last For Many Years

The MT Makita series unique design allows for flush standing next to walls as the belt tracks in line with the edge of the housing

Flat top design enables upside down application

Built in dust extraction for efficient dust extraction of large amounts of saw dust

Large lever – is used to quickly and easily change the sanding belts.

The Makita M9400MG is actually better than the AEG HBS1000E , only used the AEG Belt twice and the motor to belt drive broke , it shredded in the belt housing which caused the AEG belt sanding to stop operating as it should be.

Makita MG9400 is better build and it way it is designed to do is belt sanding.

Great belt Sander

This is a basic model. However is strong and well built. Will stand up to a lot of hard work. I turned mine into a 'Portable Bench Top Belt Sander', a la YouTube. Well worth the money and should last for years. There are cheaper models around. However I've been caught too often with cheap tools. Cheap aint cheap.

Totally satisfied

So far I have sanded 10 square metres of clear coated floorboards back to bare timber. The sander was easy to use, performed well and did a great job on the floor.

What is the difference between the M400G and then M400B belt sander ?

I want to sand a pine table top, it's pretty dinged and has a few coats of varnish on it. Think it needs a few mm taken off the top. Would the M9400G be the best for that. It won't get a lot of use after this project so not wanting to spend a lot. Thanks

Yes, I think the Makita would certainly do the job.

Gidupngo mentioned he turned his Makites M9400G into a 'Portable Bench Top Belt Sander', a la YouTube. Which YTvid did you use? Thanks heaps.

Yes you can turn into Portable Benchtop Belt sander , and very handy to have in the workshop. In the workshop should have safety comes first when using a powertool in the workshop.
