Customer Questions & Answers

Is the price quoted on Home Depot's website for one package of two grinders?

The price quoted on Home Depot's website for this 2-pack, 4-12 in, 8-amp Ridgid grinder is followed by "/each". I am unclear if this means each grinder is the quoted price or if a package containing two grinders is that price.
Asked by: RidgidFan
Yes but special buy, when they are gone I was told that was it. I had been checking with the local store for about a month before I was able to buy them. I also had to go to a larger store as my local store was not going to get them.

Can I use a cutoff wheel with these grinders? Is a cutoff wheel guard available?

Asked by: Nick
Yes you can and Home Depot sells them make sure to get the 4 1/2" inch. There is a guard on the grinder.

Why can't I buy this item? Can't home depot ship it to one of their nearby stores?

I can't even add this to my cart online. It just says "Not found in any nearby stores". Can't home depot ship it to one of their nearby stores?

Thank you for your interest! The R1007 is designed for use with metal grinding wheels and accessories only. Chain type cutting/carving wheels or accessories of that type are not recommended. Regards, RIDGID

Customer Reviews

4-1/2 in. 8-Amp Angle Grinder (2-Pack) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Last Long Worked great for a little over a year. Was satisfied until the rear bearing came apart, heated up and melted the plastic housing. Usage was intermittent. No where near what the useful life should have been. Brushes were hardly worn. Very disappointed in the life span. Also the motor vents blow hot air on the hand holding the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Grinder Works Great I have used this on a trailer project one with a grinder disk the other with a wire wheel. Works great does not get hot after continuous use like my old one. If you need a grinder find this package and get them. Only issue was with registering for lifetime warranty. Went to the Rigid site and entered info and after a 10 days got an email telling me to send in hard copy as they could not verify purchase even though all info was provided so save the box in-case the same happens to you as they want the original sku and bar-code off the box... Luckily I still had the box and was able to send it in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaves room for improvement 3 is the average of it's rating. 5 stars for power and getting the job done, 1 star for it's girth, which is too much for the hands on my 5'11" frame for any length of time. The angled forward side handle is another 1 rating. The forward angle is uncomfortable for me, plus it puts my hand in my line of sight to the work. 90° is much better, and if I'd known these angled forward, I never would have bought them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from grinder Have not used them yet, but they seem really well built and sturdy. I really like the lifetime warranty, not may manufacturers offer this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for long term user I bought these on clearance (2 boxes 4 grinders) for less then listed price and was excited to get them home. The box was heavy but I figured it was because of everything included inside. Once I removed one grinder I was shocked at how heavy it was but gave it a shot anyways. The on switch is in a uncomfortable place and hard to operate with gloves. After an hour of use my wrist was killing me. I'm a heavy equipment mechanic so using large equipment is normal for me but these are just to heavy. I bought these for home use to restore muscle cars but ended up returning them. The cheap price wasn't worth the carpal tunnel I would probably get later on. These are more suited for someone using them occasionally. I gave them 3 stars because they seem to be built well and have a lifetime service agreement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good deal but with one major drawback Not recommended for use with a cut-off wheel. That was the main reason I was purchasing an angle grinder in the first place. I didn't realize it until I was looking through the owners manual.. I'm sure you could use one anyways, but I don't what problems could arise. I don't want to hassle the return so I will use it for grinding and sanding and buy another brand for cutting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is not variable speed I can only rate this product 1 star because it is not as listed on the spec sheet. The write up says the grinders are variable speed. They are not. I use grinders for sculptural work and the variable speed is a very important feature. If variable speed is important to you then do not buy this product.
