    Went to get extra belts to have in the truck and noticed on new sanders that they changed the drive to a chain.. Which i was concered about when i bought this last year. I asked if they were having problems with the belts, and all they would say is sometimes.. Is anyone having problems and is it worth changing it over to a chain?? Thanks.

    I had one with belts. Never really had problems other than making sure there tight. I remember running the chain, putting a load on. I drove to a job, threw the switch, and nothing but a squeal. Took a 9/16 wrench, tightened it up, and off I went. :dizzy:
    I sold that one and bought a curtis ss hydralic unit. I really love it so far.
