Ditch the Cord With The DeWalt 20V Belt Sander
One major misconception about transitioning from corded to cordless is that you have to sacrifice a ton of power. While this is an understandable concern, nowadays many cordless tools are meeting, or actually exceeding, the performance of their corded counterparts. With the DeWalt Cordless Belt Sander, you can have the convenience of a cord-free design with the Pro-level performance you’re used to. Let’s take a closer look.

DeWalt Cordless Belt Sander Design
- Dimensions (LxWxH): 13.4 x 6.7 x 8.6 inches
- Weight: 9.26 pounds
- 3×21-inch belt
- Quick-release belt change
- Overmold auxiliary handle for two-handed operation
- Compatible with 35mm dust extractor

Shifting over to this tool’s design, it draws some comparisons to Milwaukee’s M18 Fuel Belt Sander that was announced in 2022. Like the Team Red version, the DeWalt belt sander includes an auxiliary handle to help with maneuverability. DeWalt opts for a larger 3 x 21-inch belt size, though, which gives you three extra inches of sanding area compared to Milwaukee’s model.
When you need to change your sanding belt, the DCW220B’s quick-release function makes it simple. Plus, you can hook up a DeWalt dust extractor (or any 35mm dust extractor hose) to this tool’s hose adaptor to lock in sawdust before it gets into the air.
