    Hanging in there

    I seldom need an angle grinder, so I bought this on the fly. So far it's held up great.

      So far, so good

      I don't use an angle grinder a lot so I bought this one. I usually only use it to sand with and with a 4" dry diamond blade. It's got a decent amount of hours on it and so far no problems.

      I especially like that the trigger is far away from the spindle and that the handle rotates.

      I usually never buy cheap tools such as Ryobi but this tool hasn't failed me yet and it was definitely worth the money!

        Still working

        I bought one of these a while back for cutting some brick with a diamond disk on it. On the second day I thought it died on me but I blew all the dust out and it came back to life, still kicking.

          It just won't die!

          O.K. I do use this grinder with a 4" blade pretty often but still I use this thing all the time and it just won't die. The switch gets dirty and has to be cleaned every so often but this little guy just keeps on spinning. I've had the grinder for a long time and as I've used it more and more I figured when it died I'd buy a "serious" grinder. I still have a not replaced this grinder.

              Just won't die

              As Riverman said. Cheap little thing, it's cut tile, rebar, sanded coped crown, cut bricks, gotten wet, dirty, been dropped an awful lot of times. Just won't die.

              Speed's high and not adjustable.
