Powerful 1200W motor for rapid stock removal with variable speed control. Small diameter front roller for sanding confined areas and detailed work. Belt tracking adjustment for accurate alignment of sanding belt. Side dust port connects to dust bag or vacuum system. Includes inversion stand, dust bag and 3 x sanding belts (80, 100 and 180 grit). Weight 5.15kg.
I wanted a belt sander that could be attached upside down and mounted to a bench.
After exhaustive research the Triton met my requirements- a solid machine with an extensive sanding capability.
Belt Sander - The bestFrederick - 08/12/2022
I have recently taken delivery of 1200WBelt sander. I bought this particular sander because like all people I wanted a Bargain and I have certainly got one. Also, it was reassuring that the construction and performance where very good. One of the main reasons I purchased this Sander was its ability to be fixed to my workbench and be used as a static sander, using supplied clamps. Not many other have this versatile feature.Perhaps you need to advertise this a lot more. Having said that I look forward to future usage with confidence. All that and a 3 Year Guarantee.
1200W Belt SanderDennis Diggins - 27/06/2022
Not happy with the belt sander, used it once for 2 min, belt stripped. Sent it in to get repaired and belt stripped again. The price for a new belt in South Africa is ridiculous. Haven't used it in 2 years now just takes up space.

I bought this 2 years ago, used it once for a table top and it was superb, a lot of power and did a great job. Months later I used it again for an outdoor bar table top I made out of reclaimed wood. It then sat in my shed for over a year (past warrantly) upon which I used it to sand a reclaimed maple table top at which point it sparked and smelled like burning plastic. I'm led to believe this is the brushes being worn out and need to be replaced. But can I get brushes for it anywhere? I emailed tech support at triton who cant seem to supply me with any and they send me to a toolssparesonline, which yeh thanks I can google myself, and they dont stock them anyway. Dont sell your rubbish in countries you can't support if the product goes wrong. Absolutely useless piece of metal and plastic that now sits in my tool shed. Tech support absoulte rubbish too. I felt confident after reading some of the above reviews that I might get help but I can't say that has been the case.
hmmmmSteve Oconnor - 14/07/2020
So far haven’t had a chance to use the belt sander. However, I have tested the sander and I find is a well belt tool and easy to use and set up. Base on my test runs I give the tool a 5.
Triton 1200W Belt SanderDavid Tipton - 18/06/2020
This is an excellent quality tool. Robust, high build quality and ergonomically pleasing to use. It's reassuringly heavy but not too heavy to handle in a controlled manner. Like all belt sanders - this is my third but first Triton - it has to be used with care as they eat wood quickly. Because of my experience with this sander I'll definitely be looking at Triton for my next power tool purchase.
My first Triton, but not my last.Iain Muir - 02/06/2020
Absolutely love this sander. Upgraded from a Skil 3x18. It’s has so much more power and is an absolute beast when you need to remove material quickly. One of my best tool purchases in years and I buy a lot of tools!

This is the 3rd Triton product I have purchased. I have 2 plunge routers, 1 built into a table and the 2nd for above workbench work. The features and quality of workmanship on my sander as well as my routers is outstanding.
Great sanderRon Dunagan - 15/04/2020
Was great for sanding down the large piece of oak I bought it for and very strong at sanding down the flooring. However zip on dust collection broke almost immediately, handle adjusts only one way without huge amounts of force and belt change lever feels very flimsy.
After many trusted years and lots of hard work I decided to upgrade my trusty Beltsander to this Triton.
Feels of good quality with great price tag.Has features that my previous sander did not such as adjustable front handle, power on led, longer power cord, love the tapered sanding belt makes some jobs far easier,also comes with spare belt.
Overall a great quality Triton tool will buy more.

Great sanderJeffrey - 16/07/2019
Just sanded 20 square meter of hardwood deck. The sander is excellent with good power adjustment and hardly any vibrations. No problem to run it for hours. Grips are comfortable and weight is good. Changing belts is intuitive and easy, as is belt adjustment. In combination with my Festool dust extraction system there is hardly any dust. Dust extraction with the standard dust bag attached however is poor, ( same goes for to the other non-Triton sanders I have). I would not want to use it indoors without a dust extraction system attached. It was a problem to attach my dust extraction system. It is strange that you have to buy an adapter separately and then the soft plastic Triton adapter frankly is a joke. Whatever way you cut it, it does not give a snug fit on either the sander or the vacuum cleaner. All my other sanders have a nice hard plastic 34-35 mm adapter that gives a seamless fit with the Festool system. If all other manufacturers can have this, why not Triton? I made my own adapter and this works good. Still, an excellent sander at a competitive price.
Triton TA1200BS sanderGeert - 26/06/2019
Purchased Triton 75mm belt sander and was pleasantly surprised firstly that the packaging was sturdy but also all recyclable. The belt sand itself as with all Triton product is very well made and felt good in the hands. Changing the belt is a quick and easy process and they include a few different grades in the box which again is a welcome touch. On using the tool for the first time I was amazed how fast it got the job done and how quickly it removed the excess material leaving a very impressive finish even with the courser grades. Overall a 5 star purchase which doesn’t surprise as the Triton tools I have already have never let me down.

Loving this sander, it’s making an easy job of sanding rough wood for plaques. I’m using it mostly upside down on the bench and the dust bag works well.
Triton Belt SanderJo Craft - 24/06/2019
I purchased this sander for a variety of projects in our kitchen remodel. It performed exceptionally well leveling out a floor, smoothing slab benches, even fine tuning cuts in the backsplash tile using the bench clamp. It feels substantial, the construction is precise and solid and so the belt tracks properly The variable speed control allows the sander to start up slow and be brought up to the desired speed with ease. We call it the locomotive because it looks like a 20th century art deco train locomotive and it'll pull away like one of you don't hold on. I've been very happy with this sander and look for new reasons to use it.

Works greatLarry gibson - 06/11/2018
This is a heavy, powerful machine with adjustable speed control and speed lock-on button. I've had it running for hours on end whilst sanding both sides of long T&G floorboards that had been removed from a re-built domestic property. I removed the shattered tongues and grooves along the edges with my circular saw and the surfaces of all these now 100mm-wide boards are now smooth enough to be re-purposed. I'll put them into storage and because I don't have to buy new timber for my future woodworking projects that's saved me a lot of money. With the quick change mechanism, belts can be replaced in a matter of seconds, re-tracking is simple and the handle at the front can be adjusted to make the machine more comfortable to grip over longer periods of time. The sander also has the added benefit, which not many machines have, that it can be clamped upside down onto a workbench for smaller, more precise, hands-free sanding. There's a bewildering range of hand sanders out there but, as far as I'm concerned, I made the right choice. It perfectly complements my current Triton hand-held circular saw and it even comes with a three-year guarantee after registering on-line. I'm really pleased with my purchase.

The SanderJeff Robinson - 15/05/2018
I bought the sander originally in 2016 and after a year and a half of 100% pleasing use it started having a terrible sound and smell. Customer support was extremely helpful and the matter was settled without issue. I put it through all stops over the year and a half; scribing, flattening tops, using as a stationary sander. It’s a great tool, I think mine was a lemon but like I said I couldn’t be more pleased with dealing with triton.
Good sander, great customer supportBen Mcinnis - 27/04/2018
I purchased a Triton TA1200BS about a year and a half ago as a cabinet maker and joiner it worked perfectly. You can palm the sander for scribing, is very comfortable for flattening large surfaces and the dust collection is the best I’ve ever seen with a belt sander. Sadly my original sander was deemed defective after but after going through tritons customer support we got it all sorted. I would have given 5 stars but I was inconvienced by having to be down a sander and having to deal with customer support.
Great sander, great customer support!Ben - 13/04/2018
I'm loving this sander so far. It's got some weight to it so I simply have to guide it along and the sander does the work—a great improvement over my last sander. I love the adjustable speed and inversion features too.
Great SanderGeorge Patterson - 23/03/2018
The 1200W is solidly made, with minimal plastic and a considerable aluminum in the frame. This makes it weigh a bit more than the plastic competition, but gravity saves me adding down pressure when i use it. It has performed well so far and i expect many years of reliable service. My first Triton tool but i would buy Triton again for sure.

Sander is perhaps a bit heavy due to more metal construction, but that allows you to use gravity for down-pressure. Well conceived and solidly built tool. Very happy with it and would consider buying additional Triton tools. Excellent warranty!

ExcellentMorand - 24/12/2017
During the last 40 years, there have been only two occasions when I’ve asked the question, “Hey, baby, where have you been all my life?” The first time was in the 7th grade, when I finally mustered enough courage to use the line on a popular 8th grade girl. (As she ran away from me laughing, I sadly realized that she would never be the future mother of my future children.)
The second time I used the line was about a month ago, when I unboxed the Triton TA1200BS belt sander. Unlike the cruel 8th grade girl, the sander didn’t laugh at me, and it didn’t even run away. In fact, I believe both of us immediately felt a magical mutual attraction that will eventually become a serious lifelong relationship.
My affection for this exceptional tool grew quickly as I began to explore its capabilities, power and features. I was also smitten by the machine’s undeniable good looks. Comparing it with my previous belt sander was like comparing a sleek, precision engineered sports car and a clunky old school bus with flat tires and graffiti on the sides.
But the Triton belt sander isn’t just another pretty face; it’s a serious machine that can outwork any of its ugly predecessors. Thanks to a powerful 1.6 horsepower motor, the TA1200BS has more than enough guts to tackle any job I throw at it. In fact, the other day, when I fired up the sander to clean up some reclaimed barn boards, I noticed that several stubborn layers of old paint on one of the boards began to tremble in fear. The terrified paint knew that it didn’t stand a chance against the Mighty Triton .
The TA1200BS has many other important (and useful) features, including these:
* Variable speed control, so you can choose the most effective speed for different materials.
* Side dust port that can be connected to a dust extraction system or the included dust bag.
* Extremely accurate belt tracking adjustment.
* Small diameter front roller that allows you to sand in confined areas.
* Comfortable adjustable front handle that provides several possible grip positions.
But my favorite feature so far is the tool’s amazing ability to convert from a handheld belt sander to a bench top belt sander, which means you can stop doing that dumb and dangerous thing where you position your old belt sander upside down in your vice clamp. (Of course, I’ve never done anything that dumb, but I’ve heard about people who have.) The brilliant “inversion clamps” included with the TA1200BS make the transformation easy, quick and safe. (See video below)
Since I’ve had this belt sander for only a month or so, I can’t vouch for its long-term durability (yet), but judging from its stellar performance so far, and judging from my previous experience with Triton Tools, I have every reason to believe that this belt sander will be working hard in my shop for a very long time.
The TA1200BS Will Make Your Old Belt Sander Ashamed Of ItselfMark Mayfield - 12/12/2017

I have experience of using several of the notable woodworking power tools but nevertheless I recently purchased my first Triton Tool. A 1200W Belt Sander 75mm and I must say I am impressed with its sturdiness and built quality and with the optional sanding frame subsequently purchased, I find I have a most versatile tool to satisfactorily produce a professional finish for any appropriate sanding task. I know it is not supplied with spare brushes but I'm sure I can deal with this as necessary, that said it does come with a spare drive belt. Well done Triton. I will look forward with confidence to purchasing other products in the Triton range.
This is my first tool from Triton. Very powerfull tool. Good price and quality. Will try other Triton tools in a future.
1200W Belt Sander 75mmIgor Prochorcuk - 15/11/2017
Purchased it on-line from Home Depot. Good on-line experience and was very pleased with the sanders feature and performance until the front roller ceased after less than 3 hours of use. This will be a good opportunity to see what kind of warranty issues arise from the on-line purchase. Will notify Triton today (Nov 1/17) of the problem.

I have been looking to replace my belt sander for a while. I had only been able to find one manufacturer that made a belt sander with a base plate up until I found the Triton 1200W 75mm belt sander. Very sceptical about the price at first. Having used it for sanding and finishing two inch thick Patch Burr Elm window boards with the base plate. This gave me a great flat blemish free surface. I then gave it a try on some six inch square oak beams after I had planed them . I am blown away by the thought and functionality put into this great belt sander. The fact that it comes with a three year guarantee is a testament to belief Triton have in their products quality. Really pleased I purchased it, the saving over the other well known brand was huge. All told a great tool that packs a punch well above its price range. Just wish it came with a case, with the saving I can go and buy one. A Big Thumbs Up

The triton tool line is not available locally so buying a any power tool without actually being able to handle it and make sure it ergonomically works for me is a big deal. I read a lot of reviews on line and finally decided to make the purchase. I was not disappointed. The sander handles very well, is comfortable to use. The belt changeout is super simple and I am extremely happy with my purchase.
I have also had my eye on the Triton 2-1/4 hp router but not yet made the purchase. If it is as well built and ergonomically friendly as the sander, it will be a awesome tool to add to my arsenal.
Thank you for providing an honest and informative review of the Triton sander to help me make a good purchase decision.

Great QualityRoss Jenkinson - 18/08/2017
After one month, it's too soon to judge the long-term sturdiness of this sander but so far I am very pleased with my purchase. I compare this sander with the Porter Cable 3x21 I used in the shop for 20 yrs. and like the fore-aft balance, the weight, the low-profile dust bag, the adjustable front grip position, the speed control position and the thoughtful flip-it-over. clamp-it-down and bolt-on-fence features. Fits and finishes are generally good although the surface finish of the cast metal parts seems a bit crude. I would like to have a chance to handle and inspect other tools in the Triton line. Their "work center" looks like an interesting new "take" on the portable table saw.
Thoughtful design, nice fits and finishes;Pico Cantieni - 11/08/2017

I have only used my new sander a few times since purchasing it but am quite pleased with it. It is easy to handle, has sufficient weight so only light pressure is needed to control it. Let the tool do its job. The noise is not excessive but it still a good idea to wear ear protection. Changing belts is quick and easy with little need for tracking adjustments. Dust collection is good. The adjustable front handle is a good idea but have not had a need to adjust it for ajob. It does not move easily which is probably a good thing. This sander was a good choice.

Best Belt SanderRobert - 25/04/2017
My first attempt at using the sander was to smooth out a small table top made from several pieces of hardwood. I used the Triton 60 grit belts and it worked beautifully, had it smoothed in about 30 minutes. Sander never got hot. Shut it down to change to a finer grit and the sander would not restart. Contacted Triton, they had me send it in. Two weeks later I got a new sander, no questions no problems even though I had not filled out the warranty information as required. I could not be happier at this point.

Triton 1200w belt sanderPetrus Timmermans - 29/03/2017
The motor is lengthwise requiring more gears to change direction to drive the belt.
They use part of the motor cooling fan to suck the sawdust. (Duh!) Who does that?
The dust that does not go in the bag now gets blown all around by the motor exhaust.
The dust bag can easily get knocked off.
It is a powerful machine though.
It stays tracked and is easy to track.
It is narrow to use but you still can't get close to the left side because of the dust bag; just like every other sander so turn the motor sideways and make an efficient dust extractor!
Dust collection sucksKen Frandsen - 27/03/2017

Nicely made tool. Robust but easy to handle. Like the low profile and adjustable front handle. Also like the ability to sand against a wall or other obstruction without any interference from the body of the sander. Only issue is the stability of the belt tracking. It seems to require somewhat frequent adjustment.

I find this to be an excellent replacement for my ELU Belt Sander it is the only available inline sander that I have found to replace the ELU. Triton appears to have taken the ELU & added improvements - like the excellent workbench clamps. They've made a fantastic sander The sander has performed excellently Triton have added "extra" features in their products which set them apart from the rest. In the case of this sander: 1 The sanding belt is quick release and only takes a few seconds to change. 2. There is an alignment screw to make sure that the sanding belt travels true. 3 The sander has optional attachments to allow it to the mounted upside down safely and used as a bench sander. 4 The handle is also adjustable to suit your preferred method of working with whatever my project happens to be at the time. My confidence in this sander is growing every time I use it! All in all, this is a great Sander at a very affordable price.

This sander impressed me from the beginning as I lifted it out of the box. It's heavy weight combined with the in-line mounted motor gives it the performance of the old Porter Cable "locomotive" belt sander loved by many, but is no longer produced. It's well designed and better though, with variable speed and inversion accessories. I look forward to years of dependable service from this tool. Great job Triton!

The replacement 1200W belt sander works like a charm is easier starting and smoother to use, and combined with the sanding frame and stand stand is a winner
1200w Belt SanderJOHN G KINGSBURGH - 16/08/2016
Beast of a tool,well balanced and easy to use. The variable speed is perfect for intricate sanding and the belt tracking is spot on. A nice touch is the adjustable handle not found on other sanders. All in all a good priced well made durable piece of equipment.

As a professional wood craftsman , I have to say that this is one of the finest belt sanders I have used in the last 40 years ! It is a credit to Titon to produce such excellance.
Excellant power toolJohn Tobin - 15/08/2016

I cant say much because my language is french, all I can say is I will have to put it on my wil !!
Great job Triton!!
Great toolClaude - 25/07/2016
I've used this sander on a multitude of projects now. The best feature is that it can be clamped on a work bench or table upside down making it useful for a range of additional jobs.
I have also used this on metal with the original triton belts and it works very well although is clearly designed for woodworking.

I like the simplicity of the design of this product. It works well and the belts stay tracked. It is well balanced and the front handle position is adjustable.
A great sanderPeter Rogers - 21/07/2016

Der Service ist hervorragend.
Super in Preis / Leistung
1200 W Belt Sander 76 mmHans-Peter Stark - 21/07/2016
Since first receiving my sander I have used it on a great number od projects now in both as a bench sander and normal belt sander, it has preformed admirable. The sander is a solid piece of equipment, the only problem I have had with is in the dust collection I no-longer use the supplied dust bag as it didn&#39;t work that well instead I have it hooked up to my dust collection system.
Great SanderAllen Gilchrist - 20/07/2016
I have been using this in my work shop for a couple of years now and it has not let me down. I have used it to carve out the belly and arm cutaways on Strat type build builds with great success. Mine came with a spare drive belt as well as accessories for mounting the machine safely upside down which is really useful for all sorts of things. Be warned, this is a very powerful sander and you can actually watch your work piece disappear if you don't exercise some degree of control!
I use a variety of different sanding grades so I am regularly swapping out the sanding belt and this is a quick and painless task. Overall I am very impressed with this sander.
I have noted a couple of remarks in reviews regarding spare parts. In the UK, at least, there are a couple of websites that sell Triton spares. Just google "Triton tools spares" and several sites will be listed.
Very happy with this sanderMikey - 20/07/2016
This is the best belt sander I have owned or ever used. It is well balanced, I like the adjustable front handle, and the 10 amp motor is powerful enough to sand all day without overheating. I used it to sand a bedroom floor twice, and the motor never got more than mildly warm. Previous sanders I have used on heavy duty jobs like this either got too hot to hold or they simply burnt out. The only criticism is that the dust bag zipper is cheap and has jammed.
Powerful machineGraeme Shelford - 20/07/2016
Building my own house, I have used the sander on the Jarrah window and door frames and the Jarrah recycled floor boards and boy, does it do a great job - little effort and great results. When a tracking problem occurred, I sent it back for warranty and to my surprise, I received a brand new machine - how's that for service! I have a 2000 workcentre that I use all the time, so well made and easy to use. I'll certainly look forward to buy more Triton tools as they are made with the serious user in mind.
Awsome sanderCarolus Van Empel - 20/07/2016
I have had tis sander for more than six months and have no problems with it. Even the belt drive has held up through the finishing of large custom furniture pieces.
Captain WoodMike Neiman - 20/07/2016
I have other triton gear I'd highly recommend but this isn't one. Most sanders have a graphite pad to minimise friction and heat, not with this unit and as a result it breaks sander belts as the glue gets hot and snap. Have a motor issue but parts a horrifically expensive and service too far and difficult to get too. A real dissapointment to the quality and innovative triton range. Not recommended.
Parts and support failureGreg Howe - 19/07/2016
Have used this sander for a number of projects now. Being able to mount it upside down on a bench is an awesome feature.
Big thumbs up from me 👍
Great machineScott - 19/07/2016
As a hobby woodworker I have all kinds of sanders, use each for its intended use,this triton sander I use for both metal fabricating and woodworking, it is a versatile sander especially when clamped to my bench (which is 90% of the time) you can shape small pieces(both wood & metal), remove layers of wood from a flat surfaces, square up small pieces of wood,remove dried up glue, etc.
As a general rule I always use blue threadlocker on all screws of any machines than tend to get loose, this sander is no exception.
One small problem I have is when I use this sander hand held, it is a bit too heavy for me but that's because I have a bad shoulder and can't hold the weight for too long althoughI have seen others do this without much difficulty and with impressive results.
Overall,I just love this sander, I just wish it was a bit lighter, other than that ,it is a workhorse in my shop.
I highly recommend it.

TA1200BS belt sanderFred - 19/07/2016
I bought my sander to help in my work preparing my daughter's house for occupation. I have used it for all sorts of stuff, from leveling uneven plaster finish to make fitting skirting board easier to smoothing off a beam of Oak for a mantle shelf. It did all with ease once I had learned to 'tame it': it never showed any signs of being over-worked or over-heated. Like other reviews I have one 'downer' - the zip on the dust bag is rubbish! It is quite out of keeping with the robust construction of the rest of the machine and has now failed to either open further, or more importantly shut! Fortunately I can hook up an extractor hose to my more normal dust extraction kit but that means I have extra gear to cart about when visiting a work site. Apart from this 'defect' the sander is in keeping with the build quality of my Triton router and 300 series table that gets used for all sorts of stuff without a thought of "will it work" when I go to use it.
It's a beast! In the nicest possibly way.Mike Kemp - 19/07/2016
5/20/15 - For the moment, I'm going to recommend that you stay away from this sander.
Not because of its power, handling, dust extraction, or utility, but because it has as it's "weak link" a very small part that shouldn't be a weak link.
This part is a threaded nut which becomes very significant because finding replacement parts for Triton tools is not easy.
I like this sander and it is very powerful . . . until the nut securing the rear drive roller decides to strip its threads. My sander now runs but the belt will not turn since the drive roller has lost connection with the drive belt due to the failure of this nut. It is a reverse-threaded nut and, at this point, I'm not sure how to go about replacing it. I've emailed their support, but have not received a response. I will update this review if they choose to help out with this problem.
Aside from that, you need to strongly consider looking elsewhere for a sander so you don't end up with an expensive and unusable tool in your shop. If finding parts were easier (here in the USA), then perhaps this wouldn't be such a potential ownership hardship.
Good sander, but lack of replacement parts keep it from being dependable.delaing - 21/05/2015
I have just started (a few months back) using this belt sander for all manner of projects. The most recent is sanding an end grain chopping board after using the TRA001 router to level. The sander performed admirably.
Triton seem to have lots of little "extra" features in their products which set them apart from the rest.
In the case of this sander:
*The sanding belt is quick release and only takes a few seconds to change.
*There is an alignment screw to make sure that the sanding belt travels true.
*The sander has optional attachments to allow it to the mounted upside down safely and used as a bench sander.
*The handle is also adjustable to suit your preferred method of working with whatever your project happens to be at the time.
My next project with this will be the rough sanding of a bell curve on a guitar body, after routing the basic shape, to "blend in" the steps. To be honest I was not really sure that this would be a suitable tool for the purpose but my confidence in this sander is growing every time I use it!
All in all, this is a great piece of kit and I wish I had started using it earlier....
Great Bit of KitFirstMM - 08/12/2014
I've had this belt sander in my bag of tricks for almost 6 months, during which I've resurfaced 6 very large decks and 2 over-sized docks. No problem except that I wore out my first drive belt after only about 15 hours' use (glad there was a replacement included as they are very over-priced)and I found that the dust bag was always falling off or getting in the way, especially when sanding steps. Otherwise, this is the best belt sander I've ever owned and, in fact, I like it so much that I bought the smaller palm Belt Sander just as soon as it became available in my area! :-)
I love this sander so much that I just bought the palm belt sander, too!cja1953 - 31/10/2013
I am not privileged yet to own one of these sanders but have had a little experience with other makes, namely at the local Men's Shed I go to. The features on the 1200 BS are exactly what I would want.
If the performance and quality is anything like my Triton workbench, Triton SAw and Triton Router I will e thrilled.
Her's hopeing .
sanderKevin Mahon - 30/01/2013
I've been using this sander for a few months now and I've found it to be a great bit of kit. It is light and easy to handle and has a slow start feature which means when starting the sander on the work piece you maintain full control. The variable speed feature adds to this control. If you want more the adjustable handle lets you get just the right grip for the situation at hand.
The dust bag can be reattached when you invert the sander so it still does its job. The included brackets let you clamp the sander to your bench and use both hands to shape and sand timber, a great feature.
I've used it to cleanup and finish many metres of hardwood and its never missed a beat. A great tool to keep in your kit.
