The DW887 die grinder provides the flexibility users expect from a high-speed 1/2-inch die grinder with 1/8-inch and 1/4-inch collets. The exclusive safety switch allows users to set the tool down without worrying about it accidentally turning on. This unit works well with carbide burrs, sanding and lap wheels, cut-off wheels, and mounted points. The DW887 is a great compliment to a 4-1/2-inch right-angle grinder for all metal fabrication and pipe work applications. Includes two wrenches, 1/8-inch collets, and 1/4-inch collets.

  • 3.0 Amp, 25,000 rpm motor provides high power and speed for all 1-1/2 in. grinding applications
  • AC/DC capacity works off welding machines and generators for increased productivity and versatility
  • Convenient paddle switch with lock-on button for easy gripping
  • Precision 1/4 in. collet with 1/8 in. reducing sleeve securely holds all proper accessories

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by all listed parts are not included I selected this brand over other similar brands because of the HomeDepot description stating the tool included 1/8-inch and 1/4-inch collets. This was the only one I found with the ¼ AND 1/8 collets. Unfortunately the tool does not include the 1/8 collet. This is an error on the HomeDepot web site description. The 1/8 collet is available from DeWalt for an additional fee. April 16, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a good product if you don't have access to air. This is a good product if you don't have access to air. I am a welder for 30 + years and most hobbiest don't know about this product because they don't sell it on the shelf. But this is an excellent tool for around the home for projects in the garage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for moderate to heavy use. Good die grinder for moderate to heavy use, but not too heavy. Extended continuous use should be avoided, or unit heats up. 10 to 15 minutes max use before letting unit cool. Very good for moderate duty jobs like removing paint or cutting small bolts. Light weight enough to use several times a day with out feeling you used most of the day. November 6, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spindle heats up quickly, too hot to hold. The grip over the spindle gets too hot to hold after only a minute of continuous use. Need to use gloves or keep switching hands on grip. August 28, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by On/Off switch needs to be replaced after moderate use I have used this die grinder infrequently over the past three or four years (maybe 3-4 times/year). Now it appears that the on/off switch is beginning to fail. I have to tap the grinder against something (while holding the switch in the on position) to get it to turn on. Works fine otherwise & is quite handy. I will probably buy another brand rather than having this one repaired. March 12, 2013
