Excellent Angle Grinder if They Give You a New One

I used this grinder to restore an old snowthrower, and a dozen other items - excellent durability and the perfect tool for metal work.  This is signficantly better than the other high end brands compared with their 7 amp models.  The threads per inch on this is standard so there are many attachments that fit this tool.

 

The only negative was the Sears store that I went to.  I ordered this online and shipped to store.  When I went to pick up the item from merchandise pickup they handed me an angle grinder in a box that had been opened.  I thought this was strange so when I got out to the car I opened the box and realized that they had given me a USED angle grinder.  It looked like the tool had been through hell and back (scratches, worn on corners, no factory sealed anything) and had a very used disk.  I went back into the store and the sales associates there gave me a hard time for 15 minutes saying that because I bought it online they couldn't exchange it [even though I just picked it up less than two minutes prior].  Eventually the sales associates called a manager and the manager resolved the issue.  That was the maddest I have ever been at any store.

 

Again, excellent tool, bad store.

Good grinder for smaller projects

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Great 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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Right took @ right time

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Best grinder I've ever owned!

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

One of ther best tools I have bought in years

It grinds faster than I thought it would. Put a cutting wheel on it and I can cut metal in a fourth of the time it took me using my air powered cutting tool. Worth every bit that I paid for it.

Good Tool

I've owned this grinder for a little over a year now and it has been very handy and needed many times over. Used it from rust removal to grinding out spot welds and cutting hardened bolts and plate steel. Haven't had any issues and have not been looking or wishing for one with more power. For the average diy job or handy-mans collection this seems to hold up just as Dewalt does or any similar brand could.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
