Craftsman Angle Grinder Cuts Through the Competition
Complete grinding tasks with power and precision with this Craftsman Professional 4.5-inch small angle grinder from Sears. This versatile power tool is well-suited for tasks like cutting tile, mortars and pavers; it also can be used to cut or grind steel or even to sharpen other blades.
This Craftsman angle grinder is powerful enough to handle heavy-duty jobs, thanks to its impressive 8.6-amp motor, while 11,000 RPMs provide superior handling and control with use. The angle grinder features durable cast aluminum gear housing and has accurate gear alignment and operating efficiency that you can count on. When in use, an ergonomic paddle switch adds safety and easy of use to the tool; the switch can be engaged from multiple positions and shuts off when you release it. Also adding to your ease and control when operating the grinder is a two-position soft grip side handle that features rubber comfort grip to reduce vibration and mounts on either side to further promote control.

I bought this to make some modifications on an exhaust section, and it worked very well. It has good power and a quality feel. I try to buy Craftsman Professional Series products whenever I can as the products always seem to be tough and last a long time. So far this one seems to fall into that same category.
This is a great quality tool for the price. The cord is very thick and heavy duty. The only real complaint I have about this angle grinder is that I would have liked to see it with a three prong plug rather than just the two. Safety is so important when doing any sort of projects around the house and a different plug would have made it much safer. All in all though I'm very pleased that I chose this angle grinder and I will continue to shop at sears and buy craftsman tools because they really are the best!!

Compared this to my old Dewalt, this is substantially louder. It also is a very large body size so it's harder to grip and use the switch. Feels pretty solid though, and was very inexpensive, so for grunt work it's okay.

I bought this tool for a friend getting married - it was on his gift registry. He was super psyched to receive it, and has used it for some woodworking jobs.

If you need a powerful grinder at a good value this should fit the bill. The only issue I have with it is the switch being at the bottom, when you need to cut metal at various angles it becomes very awkward. Overall good value.

I bought this because I had a gift card and it was on sale. I didn't really think I had much of a need for it. However, after having it a few weeks, I have found that it has come in handy. I have used it to grind down brackets and modify metal tools to fit better. I have been really happy with the performance, easy to use and powerful. I like the on/off switch, it's really big and doesn't come on unexpectedly...great design.
