Best angle grinder
Dewalt did an excellent job on an amazing grinder! This thing is powerful and could stand up to any size job form commercial to shade tree back yard mechanic! From cutting concrete to grinding on on stainless steel. Will cut through 1/4” steel like butter, no motor dying down, stalling out like ordinary grinders do! I’m very proud to own such a great American made grinder that performs very well in any condition! Great job Dewalt

This thing is a BEAST!!
We were recently hired to cut a recently purchased house. The tile walls seemed simple enough, until we started the demo & found out that it was Old School; support wire mesh, concrete & tile that ended up being almost 1.5" thick. This grinder made short work of it. The variable speed offered adjustments for any situation we encountered & the kickback brake was flawless!

Fantastic product......
This is now my favorite angle grinder. My 4.5" is now the backup and the one the kids get to use when helping me work. The 5" capacity is great (with all the 5" accessories available and all the 4.5" accessories I have now fit as well. The ability to change the cover position easily and without tools is a time and frustration saver, just push the lever and rotate. I have used my other grinder at times in a way that I would rather have gone the other direction but didn't want to take the time to get the tool to change the cover position.
I wasn't sure if I would use the variable speed, but after trying it I really like it. Being able to slow down the speed in certain situations such as sanding and even grinding gives me a little more control.
Haven't had the kickback brake work yet and hopefully won't, but it is good to know it is there.

I love this grinder due to being able to vary the speed, it’s great for when you have to do precise cutting and or grinding with it. The break feature is also something I really like because you don’t have to wait for the tool to spin down to a stop when shutting power off to the unit, avoids unwanted injuries

Better than a Metabo
I have had this grinder for about a month now and it's so much better than a metabo in my opinion. It has no vibration at all and the speed controls are very handy. I work in a sheet metal fabrication shop and use this grinder just about every day. I like it better then the 250 dollar metabo they give us.

Very good grinder to use.
I obtained this grinder a short time back. I ground out a channel in some concrete with it . The grinder performed very well, and it was plenty strong enough for the job.
I like the variable speed option, plus its other feathers. Very smooth grinder.
I would recommend this grinder

Full featured grinder!
This is my first experience using a brushless grinder. Speed control is very nice: adjust the RPMs for whatever work you’re doing.

I used it with a diamond cup wheel and it made swift work of correcting some concrete. See photos.

The green power indicator light is a nice touch - you know when someone has unplugged your extension cord!

I like the fact that you can lock on the power switch, then adjust the speed.

I have always used cheap angle grinders before, but the quality and features of this unit has changed me for the better.

Great variable speed switch
Like the ability to lock the grinder on and have the variable speed control. Own other grinders that have variable speed but have to hold trigger in exact spot for the speed hard to do. Used it with concrete grinding disc worked excellent to slow down the speed for dust control.

Excellent Product for the DIYer
Having several brands of angle grinders, this is one of the finest angle grinders I have used. I love the feel and ease of use. Being a DIYer, the variable speed option proved useful when using this grinder on various materials. Highly recommend you add this to your tool arsenal.

Powerful grinder nice features
Really nice grinder. Most powerful barrel grip grinder ive ever used. Had no problems cutting through 1/4" thick angle and grinding down welds. Wouldn't bog down at all. Also has a variable speed dial which is nice for more delicate tasks. This is the lock on switch style but there is also a paddle switch style of this same grinder if you prefer that. Highly recommend may buy another so i don't have to keep switching blades between tasks.
