Product Details

The Bosch GWS13-50VSP 5- In. Angle Grinder with Paddle Switch is a beefy angle grinder that provides a no-lock multi-grip paddle switch for user control and comfort. This grinder delivers 13 amps and up to 11,500 RPM of professional power. It has a lower variable-speed setting - 2,800 RPM - allowing the user to match speed to application. The paddle switch provides additional operator control. The tool is designed for long life, featuring directed air flow that diverts dust away from vital components. It is equipped with a two-position Vibration Control side handle, making it less strenuous to operate. The grinder has constant electronics for easy starts and dependable speed under load, and it has direct-motor cooling for higher overload capabilities. This tool provides security, with an integrated acceleration sensor to limit inadvertent recoil and restart protection to protect against unintended startup. It has a burst-protection quick toolless adjustable guard and a large spindle lock for a more convenient disc change. The Service Minderbrushes stop the grinder when preventative maintenance is required.

                  Overall another great tool from Bosch. I used this in conjunction with wire wheels to clean plaster residue from concrete. The variable speed allowed me to find the optimal balance between performance and wire wheel longevity. It seems to have weathered close to 100 hours in an extremely fine dust environment without failure. Recommend using compressed air to keep internal mechanics clean.

                  I considered the extra cost for the GWS13-50VS as an investment in future flexibility in what I'd be able to do with it and I think I made a good choice. I wanted to soften the high ridges at the joints in the concrete slab in our basement but concluded it wouldn't be practical to get a 150-lb concrete grinder into the basement. I combined the GWS13-50VS with a Ridgid 5-inch diamond cup grinding wheel, a Dustless Technologies D1805 dust shroud, a DeWalt DXV09P shop vacuum, and a hose adapter from the Ridgid VT1755 adapter set. Although I can't say it helped a lot, I even added a bullseye type bubble level to the flat surface at the top of the grinder using double-sided foam tape. The variable speed has been great. Running it towards the low end of the speed range keeps the household noise manageable and allows the DeWalt vacuum to keep up with the dust. There really has been no issue with dust at all. I typically ran the grinder in 30-minute or less sessions, shuffling the bag or swapping out the bag in the vacuum before each session, and then allowing the grinder and vacuum to cool off between sessions. A 10-inch straightedge was used to determine when the joints were reasonably flat and even. I'm sure the joints will be far less noticeable now when carpet tile gets installed later. There did seem to be a mechanical conflict between the clamp on the dust shroud and the guard release button on the Bosch. To get around that, I temporarily removed the spring loaded release mechanism from the Bosch.

                  Very disappointing! Started immediately overheating when I tried to use it for a floor grinder. Can barely handle any pressure at all. I’ve been using a similar tool from Harbor freight and I have to replace it every few jobs. So far, Harbor freight tool out performs this. I’m normally a big fan of Bosch tools. Not this time.

                  This is really doing the job for me. I like the variable speed because not all applications require full speed.
