This grinder worked as expected, plenty of power and not too heavy. Good fit for the home workshop and DIY projects

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LeadingZero Smoked and burned out
Within the first few minutes of light duty grinding, my RIDGID angle grinder began smoking. I turned it off to allow it to cool. There was an acrid odor and it was still smoking profusely. So I unplugged it. About an hour later, I tried it again. It began smoking even worse than before. I allowed it to cool and packaged it back in the box. Very disappointing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by User Powerful and compact. Very useful.
I like the lighter weight and smaller size of this model then some comparable 7" grinders that are just too big and heavy. It has ample power and I like the narrower grip. I love the rotating handle. It allows you to spin the handle and mount the side grip on the top and you can use this vertically like a cut off saw. My only complaint is the handle rotation is somewhat sticky and and the button is cumbersome. But it gets easier once you're used to it. As it's a recent purchase I can't comment on longevity but I expect it will last longer than the 4.5" grinders we use frequently.

In the middle of a project....grinding a concrete patio....my Chicago Electric grinder finally burned out. I replaced it with a Dewalt grinder. Wrong choice! The Dewalt only lasted about 30 minutes! Then I had a choice. I could either drive 60 miles to return and replace the Dewalt, or I could travel 25 miles to my local Home Depot. Home Depot won the argument! I bought my new Rigid angle grinder and finished the project! I should have known better than to stray from my favorite brand!

After having an assortment of smaller grinders in my shop I decided I need to step up to a larger 7" grinder for some of my bigger jobs when I need to remove a lot of material quick.so far the rigid 15 amp. has worked great, gearset in the head is a little noisy but works awesome

Old grinder gave up the ghost. This is a great replacement for that.

I bought the tool a few months ago and only used it for small jobs. Since then I've replaced sections of four and six inch cast iron sewer line. The twist handle made the job so much simpler. I highly recommend this grinder performs well and very dependable.
