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.

This did a good job for what I needed it for. It wouldn't be great if you had a large job, but for random jobs around the house it is a good option for a grinder.

I don't think you could buy a better tool at this price. Grinder has plenty of power and works great. Only thing I don't like is the guard is hard to move you have to remove screws in order to rotate it but would recommend.

Had a nut to grind off, tired of borrowing neighbor's old Mikata, and got this model and it worked inside 10 minutes. Got my boy's car ready to roll for college. Solid, steady, and worked like a charm.
I bought this grinder to replace a 10+ year old DeWalt that died. At first, I was skeptical to buy this grinder, having heard mixed reviews on Craftsman power tools (mostly not so good), but gave it a shot anyhow. Boy am I glad I did! I love the way it fits & feels in the hands. It doesn't vibrate like my Makita or old DeWalt, and I love the switch! You won't be disappointed with this product.
