Small but powerful!
As I embarked on what will be a long term remodeling of our house, I knew that I would definitely be needing a grinder for a variety of uses. Nothing large, but I also thought I could probably use two grinders to have one setup for cutting, and the other with a grinding wheel or wire cup. I had looked at the various models DeWalt offered and was thinking of purchasing one corded and one cordless grinder. However, while at Lowes picking up some materials, I decided to look at the grinders and I purchased the DeWalt 4-1/2 inch 7.5 amps Paddle Switch Corded Angle Grinder DWE4012-2 two-pack set on sale at a reasonable price. These DWE4012 grinders are well made and the 7.5-amp motor has been powerful enough to work well for several projects that have involved both cutting and grinding. Each has a removable side handle that can be attached to either the right or left side, as well as a guard that can be spun to position it as needed. The paddle switch makes it easy to control the power. The threaded clamp nut can be removed and tightened with either a spanner wrench or an allen wrench, the latter which is included with each grinder. It is easy to change accessories when needed. The DWE4012 grinders have been dependable and I do recommend them.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
