ozito belt sander massive fail
Used once on one weatherboard. Next time I go to use it the belt moves off the sander! Minimal pressure DO NOT BUY this rubbish. Now for another 90klm round trip to return, Ryobi was returned after one day as well.

Aldi has increased Prices of some items but claiming they are cheap !!!
Aldi spents a lot of money on advertising on TV claiming that they are cheap. Well Aldi may have been sometimes upto last year. But specially after Cronavirus pandemic there on they have inclreased their prices on most items substantially. For example, we used to buy some type of bread at around $1.50. That bread is not $2.20 which is an increase of 30%. We heard on TV recently that meat prices has dropped down. This was mentoned by Aldi and Coles too. But we used tuy leg of lamb at $10 to $12 a kilo prior to Cronavirus pandemi, now I had to ...pay $14.00 a kilo and increase of 16%. Many other items have been increased which you can check it for yourself. Fruit and groceries specially. Their advertisement for being cheap is totally false now. Coles who used to be more expensive than Aldi in fact they are cheaper or equal and better quality when equal.
Purchased in May 2020 for $14.00.
Too Hot to Handle...
This was the first time I had owned a belt sander so wasn't too sure what to expect, but this sander lacked power, became so hot that it was impossible to hold & the belt was alway slipping off, despite continually adjusting the tracking, (though the heat from the motor did eventually melt the belt onto the plate) & failed to expel the sawdust, so was constantly clogging up. I asked an experienced operator for advice, as a became convinced I must have been doing something wrong, but they couldn't get this sander to operate comfortably either. Due to the many issues, I would not use it & eventually returned it as unsatisfactory.
Size & Weight
Underpowered. Poor tracking of the belt. Overheating of the motor. Clogging up from the sawdust.

Ozito is a Bunnings brand. Take your sander to Bunnings, if that part or something similar is available, they should have it or maybe able to advise. Your challenge - try to find an experienced staff member that actually knows what a sander is.... Good luck.
