Default Triton 3 inch belt sander clamped to bench on side

may I ask if any one has a Triton 3 inch belt sander with the clamps to clamp it upturned to the bench?
If so, have you ever tried to clamp it to a vertical surface so that the belt is vertical, something like the Festool Basis Plus bench belt sander.
Also, what is the performance of this sander like?

Hi Peter
I have been using this sander clamped to the bench, for about 3 years now, but have not used it in the vertical position you described. About a year ago I used it free-hand, with the sanding frame attachment, to sand a large amount of very rough pine down to a reasonably smooth finish, but shortly after that the needle bearing seized. (The pine was really rough, and I was 400km away from my thicknesser, so I think I may have taxed it a little) Apart from that I really like this sander and continue using it clamped to my bench. I like the "stop" attachment when sanding square stuff.
