Product Overview

Restore edges, sharpen axes, hatchets, mower blades, smooth rough edges, level surfaces, and keep your bits and chisels in top working order with the BLACK BULL 8 in. Bench Grinder. This 3560 RPM single speed Grinder is ideal for use in your home workshop but is still powerful enough to be used in a more commercial setting. Two adjustable lights installed above each wheel give a direct and focused light on the work piece, great for seeing more fine and detailed work. Switching wheels can be a real pain, so the BLACK BULL 8 in. Bench Grinder includes two grinding wheels, one coarse grit wheel for rough work and one medium grit wheel for finer, more detailed work. The 5/8 in. arbor accepts other wheel types for buffing, polishing, sanding and removing rust and paint. The large, front mounted power button is easily to manipulate, even when wearing gloves. Mount onto the BLACK BULL Bench Grinder Stand (sold separately) for a convenient and secure grinding station.
  • Sharpen blades, smooth edges and level surfaces
  • 2 grinding wheels included (1 course/1 medium)
  • 2 adjustable lights above each wheel
  • 115-Volt/60 Hz/1/3 HP/2.1-Amp/241.5-Watt
  • 3560 RPM single speed
  • 5/8 in. arbor, bore size: 5/8 inch
  • Assembly required
  • Wheel size: 8 in. x 3/4 in. x 5/8 inch

Questions & Answers

I just installed and tried to sharpen a mower blade and the grinder vibrates so bad I couldn't use it!

Asked by: Kashman
Might need a wheel dress to get the wheel perfectly round, or the wheel might need to be replaced.

Customer Reviews

8 in. Bench Grinder with Lights is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not wast your time Got the unit on the 19th of August, set it up on the 28th of August. The two grinding wheels included where so far out of round that the unit walked a crossed my bench. So I got two new and all was fine, Unit ran good and was working ok. On Sept 10th I was using it and it stopped spinning. the on/off switch had just stopped working.... I am taking it back. Save your time and order a different unit. Poor parts used by MFG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 8" bench grinder purchase this item for my son in law. seems to have plenty of power, but just before reaching max. rpm's, it vibrates a lot, in fact it moves the grinder stand that was purchased at hf. also the lights are a little flimsy, they seems to move around a lot while operating grinder, i don't see how one can adjust these lights so they won't move so much. overall good grinder for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great I bought this bench grinder for our shop. We went cheap because it would not see that much use. The grinder was purchased in 5/12, and as of 10/12 it has quit operating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible waste of time and money Product was poorly packaged and came with tool rests bent. Wheels are horribly out of round and vibration was terrible. Note that motor is only 1/3 Hp continuous not the 3/4 Max HP that they try to highlight in the advertisement. Tried to mount a brushed wheel on one side and the motor was too weak to get the wheels started turning. Once the machine was up to full speed (30 seconds later) the slightest pressure against the wire wheel and motor wound down to a stop. I'm returning this grinder as soon as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for a great price Swapped out one of the grinding wheels for a wire wheel. Only a little vibration at start-up, but smooths right out as it gets up to full speed. The two eye shield were defective. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent out replacements right away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the price paid The Black Bull 8" bench grinder is pretty much what I expected for the price paid. UPS did their usual job of beating the cr*p out of it. Only had to straighten out the tool rest supports which were bent and protruding through the beaten up box upon arrival. After that, it was ready to assemble, which was an easy task. I recommend putting a wrench on the pre-assembled wheel guard hardware. Mine were not snug and the vibration at start-up and shut-down would surely cause them to undo themselves over time. Vibration had been a concern after reading other customer reviews. On my unit, the vibration at full RPM is not an issue. The lights, although not bright, are helpful. The tool rest for the medium wheel has an angled groove that I assume is to align drill bits at the proper angle to the wheel. Great idea, but unfortunately, I think this piece was designed for a thicker wheel. I didn't even try to use the groove because it clearly leads to the void between wheel and motor, rendering the groove useless. The whole tool rest assembly is thin and vibration prone but you don't even need it. Since the tool rest angle is fixed at level, about all it's good for is to steady your hands while grinding, which is helpful. I see the specs for this grinder at HomeDepot.com have been revised since my purchase. When I bought mine in May, 2012, it was listed as 3/4 HP. That was a major influence in my decision to purchase this particular model so I was pretty disappointed when I read the plate on the motor. It states 1/3 HP with a peak 3/4 HP, so it is somewhat weak. For my purposes though, it's fine. I use it primarily to sharpen mower blades and other landscaping equipment. I would not recommend this unit for commercial shop work as it is only 1/3 HP and bogs down somewhat easily. It also takes too much time to get up to speed for commercial use. But for my needs, I'm satisfied with the Black Bull 8" bench grinder, especially considering the price paid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You got what you pay for Ok grinder. I started armour making. Train my patience with this thing. Takes a while to speed up a wheel. Wheels are not perfectly balanced but ok. It heats up after a while, so I do a few projects at the same time. Perfect for home use. Lights are helpful big time as I work on the porch after sunset. It is almost as powerful as Ryobi 8" but a bit cheaper and has lights. PS My old DeWalt 4 1/2 angled grinder has twice more power than this thing, but I will keep both.
