Bosch 1274DVS 6.6 Amp 3-Inch by 21-Inch Variable Speed ​​Inline Belt Sander with Cloth Dust Bag

The Bosch 1274DVS sander has been carefully designed and precision built to differentiate itself from its competitors. The variable speed auto dial basically eliminates the need to press harder or softer on surfaces, reducing the chances of making mistakes. It’s one of the slowest sanders on the market for its size, but it more than makes up for it, in control and precision.

It is currently one of the lowest priced sanders on the market and is good value for money. There are a few things to consider about this sander before purchasing. Read on for an in-depth look at its features, specs, and reviews.

Features of Bosch 1274DVS

The chassis of the sander is made of magnesium and aluminum, allowing it to weigh around 7 pounds. It is a light and precise equipment, ideal for small and medium sanding jobs. With its compact in-line motor design, you can switch from horizontal to vertical sanding jobs without too much stress on the user.

With a motor speed of 6.6 amps and a belt speed that can change from 550-1500 on the fly, it allows for both a fine finish at a lower speed and a rapid removal of material at maximum speed.

Pros cons


Most reviews seem to agree that this is a well-designed, comfortable sander. It removes materials efficiently and is very easy to control.

Hobbyists and professionals alike seem to agree that its light weight allows less wear and tear to the user on long jobs and is surprising that it packs a lot of power.


One of the main complaints about sand is the dust bag’s ability to collect after use for a long period of time. Although it was not really expanded upon in the review, I found that if the dust collection is good on initial use and gets worse over time, it may be a problem with use. Dust bags should be cleaned as specified in the instruction manual and if the problem persists, after following the instructions, users should contact the manufacturer.


Overall, the Bosch 1274dvs is a superbly designed sander that can be used for fine sanding or quick stock removal. It is also one of the most popular models on the market and I was unable to find any major issues or product recalls online.
