Overview

Editor's Review: 4-1/2-in. Angle Grinders

review date: March 1, 2005

This 4-1/2-in. angle grinder features a clutch to protect against both kickback and tool damage from binding. Its handle has two positions. Wheel changes are fairly easy, and balance and feel are good. Auto-shop brushes shut down the tool when maintenance is required. The grinder's plastic case includes storage for accessories.
