have used the grinder quite a few times over the past few weeks, done all the jobs with ease . Used it for sanding with flappy discs and put a wire brush attachment on also to remove some stubborn jb weld, great fun 😁.
I had not used one of these for a couple of years, not being impressed with a previous different model by another supplier. This worked well, cutting both concrete wall capping tones and even a concrete post.
Seems ok so far done what i wanted so time will tell but with a 3 year warranty you can not go wrong.
- A fantastic little angle grinder at a really bargain price
- Quality feel and powerful enough.
- Great product for the Price
What an excellent hooligan tool for home use. I had never ried cutting a brick or concrete paving stone in half before or sanding the edge down. . And now i cannot get enough of them to try my skills out oni had worried that they might be difficult to position or control but i have found that that is quite easy to do as well as being precisely controlleddo buy some face/mouth masks though and wear an old pair of jeans. . You are about to get quite dustythis is an excellent piece of kit that i was not previously aware that i had been missing all my life.
Works fine altho the gearbox is quite noisy.
This does exactly as it says on the tin, the only thing i found was the gears on the drive were dry so needed greasing which also made the grinder quieter and the on/off switch is rather awkward at times to lock in the on position, other than them two things i would highly recommend this.
Powerful but have to keep pushing button up to use it.
Comfortable to hold and operate. Handle fits either side but not in the centre like some grinders. Cord is a decent length and quite thick. Spindle-lock is a good action and works well. Lock spanner is straight so can foul the guard.
Excellent piece of kit, i still have a 10yr old one that’s still going strong, needed another.
I have used this tool to cut holes for windows and doors in shipping containers and 50mm box section steel. After 1 year of hard use the a bearing went , but the standard 2 year warranty covered it and bosch repaired it at no cost. I recommend registering for the 3 year warranty if available on their website. Such a good product i bought a second one.
Bought to replace a previous bosch grinder which gave up having ingested grit etc damaging motor. This one claims to have sorted out this problem with a revised ventilation design. So far all seems well having cut blocks, bricks and concrete. The on/off switch could be better and is much easier to switch off than switch on. Changing the blade has been made easier. Very comfortable in use and good value.
This compact angle grinder from bosch is ideal for hobbyists and diyers alike. For professional or more frequent use, i would suggest the bosch ‘blue’ line of power tools. The tool has the very familiar colours, build quality and ease of use as other bosch power tools. I bought this angle grinder to cut some old 3. 5m heras fencing panels so it could be more easily disposed of. The angle grinder does not come with cutting/grinding discs so i ordered the ‘frequently bought together’ suggested silverline discs. The tool comes ready for grinding, however, if you wish to cut, i recommend you buy the additional cutting guard. You can cut with the grinding guard on instead, but sparks will fly in more directions and should a disc explode, you are a lot less protected. Overall, a great product for the price and a great addition to the diyers toolkit.
Used to buy makita, after getting this i wont bother to pay the extra now, good quality and as good as the makita.
Worth it for one job alone – cutting out old security gate – done in 30mins – less time than organising someone to do the job (and prob a quarter the price – and i’ve got a grinder).
Ideal with stone cutter for trimming and cutting the indian stone, never stuttered or stalled, easy to handle and use.
Bought this as a cheap solution to cutting a few real stone slabs for a new patio (straight lines only). Was worried it might be too small for the job, but it was good for the job very bosch a solid, powerful small tool with clear definite controls. If you were cutting stone regularly you would want something bigger, but this was the right solution for my job, and i still have it available for whatever else.
Good quality and still do the job . So far with my not every day use is not let me down.
Loved using this and doing man stuff. Cutting metal grinding stone is man stuff and every man should have one of these or bigger lol.
Plenty of power to cut and grind material. I use it with some cutting disks to cut rebar and then remove rough edges in preparation for welding.
Have been using my old cheapo grinder recently removing decades of paint from iron gates and it soon gave up the ghost after getting choked on paint dust. Decided to see what this bosch model was like as it mentioned an internal anti dust system. Really light and easy to handle. A great size for getting into awkward places, this is aided further by the ability to quickly unscrew the handle with the option of putting it back on on the opposite side if need be. Spindle lock button on the back just needs a firm press, then revolve the spindle a little until the button depresses fully. At that stage you can loosen it with the supplied tool and install a new disc. No discs come with the grinder but a good value pack of 40 grit flap discs are available from amazon so i threw those into the order. The proof of the pudding is in the longevity when it comes to angle grinders, but it feels like a quality bosch product, albeit one designed firmly with the diy infrequent home user in mind. It certainly isnt build for heavy duty situations. All in all very happy with this bargain price for a quality product.
This grinder works well but bit heavy. The only gripe is that a thin spanner to hold the spindle would be helpful to change disks and pads. Overall happy with purchase.
Tears through pretty much everything. Small so be ready for some vibration, but does the job. Not for the faint hearted, noisey to say the least, but does a good clean cut if you can hold steady.
