Wow! So pleased - recommend to Professional usersI brought this Cordless Grinder to work alongside my BOSCH Corded Grinders. It is an excellent tool, almost as powerful as the 240V Grinders. So light and versatile. Good price too from Axminster. Does eat through small batteries so use 4ah +

Best cordless grinder I've usedOK, it's a little pricey, compared to the 110V or 240V versions, but I bought this naked over a year ago, as I couldn't drag cables along the walkway. It performed admirably, and it does eat the 3.0Ah batteries, but the 4.0Ah batteries fair better. I only use the inox 1mm cutting discs, as the others make more sparks, however the flap wheel sanding discs work well with this grinder. I even bought a stainless steel buffing kit, and that worked well too. Not your typical user, as I have a stash of 18V batteries and a couple of chargers, so the short life of the batteries, isn't an issue, but the 2.6 & 3.0 Ah versions do get warm when getting low on charge, so they have to cool before they will charge.

dear but goodThis is a really handy tool, not quite as powerful as the mains version so if cutting thicker metal you want the thinest discs possible. For grinding off rust shaping , working on roofs, in awkward spaces etc, its a godsend. It does eat battery power, and is a lot more expensive than the mains version but i'd still recommend it.
