  1. Great grinder- I need more
    It's a real grind- does great with all aspects of grinding, wish I had 3 of them instead of just one. Using for flap disk to clean up after welding, with cutting wheels and grinding bevels pre-welding

  3. Great power, speed and versatility.
    Great power and speed. The only downside is how long it keeps turning after the power is off. But I'm thrilled with it overall. It has given me a great option other with more power than my cordless drill.

    I bought 2 of these little angle grinders, they looked and sound like a new tool. I use one with a cut-off wheel and the other one with a grinding disc and it has plenty of power for both operations even through they only pull 5 amps. Should give many years of service for small shop or garage use.

    There was only very minor evidence this tool was not brand new. As for the performance, I have yet to put it to the metal, but discovered I need to hold on tight when pushing the trigger otherwise the torque on this thing could make it jump out of my hand.

    The initial unit I received seemed to have a noisy gear box. However, customer service quickly helped me get a replacement. Thanks! The replacement unit seems to be very good. I have used it several times and it is just what I expected.

    So far this has been a great little grinder, My only negative is the top trigger with its safety is a bit tough to negotiate but I'm starting to get use to it and overall I'm very happy with the product

    grinder was delivered in a timely manner. it was supposed to be reconditioned but i could not find any evidence of any use. it worked great from the first and still works great. it is used in my welding shop every day so it gets used and abused. no complaints with the running of the grinder at all. a good product at a good price. yes, i will buy another just like it when needed.
