This open-end belt sander can tackle wide or irregular pieces. With its cast iron table and steel frame, the OBS-1548 is built to last. Unlike most competing models, it offers 3 speeds.

  • Open-end design with 15” width can get 30” of working material through.
  • Perfect for sanding cabinet doors, butcher blocks, office tables, and furniture.
  • 5 hp motor runs on 220-volt single-phase power.
  • 3 feed speeds (16.4, 23, 32.8 fpm) let you adjust to fit your type of material. Most competitors only offer 2 speeds.
  • Multiple speeds make it easy to sand away glued layers of wood. Use the high speed to knock off the glue, then switch to a slower speed.
  • Extension table can support wider pieces of material.
  • Disc brake for emergency stops makes your shop safer.
  • Conveniently accessible side panel doors allow for quick belt changes.
  • Pneumatic belt tensioning and tracking help you get the tension just right for a smooth finish.
