Four-inch sanders are a bit different animal than three-inch, so it may be apples and oranges here. I've never tried the Makita four-inch. Those bigger belt sanders are wonderful in the shop, but get pretty heavy for some kinds of on-site work for those of us of the smaller variety. Don't know how heavy that Makita four-incher might be, but a four-inch Porter Cable is a whole handful for me.

I've never seen a variable speed belt sander of any stripe. Can't say as I've ever even considered that as a feature.
