Angle grinders are handheld grinding and polishing tools used in metal fabrication yards and construction sites. They use petrol, electricity or compressed air and grind with a replaceable abrasive disc to remove excess material from metal pieces. They are also used to grindstones, sand, polish pads, and wire brush wheels as well as cutting plastic plasterboard. Some grinders have 2-position side handles; others have 3-position side handles while the rest have multi-position side handles. Different angle grinders have different power consumption capacities ranging from 500W to over 2500W depending on their purposes and can be corded or cordless. Some also use Li-Ion batteries.
The 115mm disc angle grinders come in different specifications and designs. There are a variety of Bosch, Dewalt, Milwaukee and Makita pieces. They use different power outputs depending on the purpose and have varying speeds. They use discs that grind metal, cut all types of steel, grindstone, cut wood boards and planks, plastics, fibreglass, fence panels and MDF. Their discs are made of a varied material such as tungsten carbide, resin bonded x-cloth, aluminium oxide, and silicon carbide.
These come from brands such as Bosch, VonHaus, Dewalt, Ryobi, Hitachi, Milwaukee, Silverline, and Makita brands. You can find several trade quality varieties made of mainly aluminium oxide that grinds metal. Discs for these grinders come in a variety of diamond blade for cutting concrete and stone, saw blade for wood cutting, stainless steel, turbo blades as well as diamond coated or tipped blades.
Select an angle grinder with a comfortable side handle, a secure spindle lock, and a dead man switch that automatically powers off the device when not in use to prevent injuries. The best grinders should have handles with vibration damping to prevent excess fatigue; safety clutches that disconnect malfunctioning disc to prevent injuries and soft starting varieties that don't startle the operator once powered on.
