Ryobi already had a cordless belt sander so what makes this one any different? The last model was a traditional wide belt sander that sand and flatten larger areas with it’s 3×18″ sanding belt while this new model has a very thin belt just 1/2 an inch wide (1/2″18″) making it small and thin enough to get into small spaces for more detailed work. Think of it just like it’s UK/AUS cousin’s model name, the power file, as it will replace your traditional hand tool file with a powered version running on a belt.
