With a good belt sander you can do some dirty jobs like: removing paint, smoothing reclaimed lumber that's studded with fragments of nails, sanding a very rough surface, leveling a surface, or freehand shaping and rounding.
You want a sander that can remove a lot of wood fast? Or have an old hardwood floor that needs to be smoothed? If you need to make a perfect curved line, the Parkside belt sander is the ideal power tool for this job.
You can gradually sneak up on a curved line for a perfect fit. On a laminate countertop, make sure the direction of belt travel pushes the laminate down.
When you are using ths belt sander don’t push down on the sander, let its weight do the work. Go slowly, overlap passes and allow the tool to go past the end without dipping. Be careful not to tip the sander or change speed or direction.Read more: Parkside belt sander

After three years of usage, my old gas grass trimmer definitely died. In the first two years it worked very well, but, after the warranty period expired, the problems started to come... It was a medium budget two stroke grass trimmer from MTD (MTD 790).
I decided to replace it with something from Stihl, I heard they do most reliable garden tools (chain saws, trimmers and brushcutters).
If you need help finding the right STIHL trimmer or brushcutter, you can try their interactive product selector here
I analyzed all the models matching my working area (more than 1 acre / ~4.800 square metres), budget and the two finalists were the FS 90 with 4-MIX engine and the new FS 94 with the old two stroke engine. The final decision was for the new FS 94, a professional grass trimmer that combines performance, portability and innovation.Read more: Stihl FS 94
