    i am currently looking for a polycaster sander to put into my new truck and i would preferably like to find a used unit which is proving harder than i thought. i did find one that is a 2009 and after a lot of searching i think it might be a first generation. is that something that i should avoid? i wanted a second gen one that is only a couple years old but the ones i have found are only a little cheaper than a new unit with waranty and everything. the 2009 im looking at is only 2k.

    Don't get one that has a belt. Get one that uses the chain just like the pro casters do.

    ive never used either but i figured the rubber belt would work out nice and not stretch/seize up like the metal ones do.. or are there other downfalls to them?
