    A:  No. The manual provides a list of grinders it fits. You can access that manual at the manufacturer's website.

    Q:I have a GWS10-45P. Will this work with it?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes. Confirmed. I have a GWS10-45P. This Dust Guard fits and works well. Note that the regular guard that comes with the grinder must be removed before the dust guard can be attached. FYI, the hose of my 5 gallon Shop-Vac fit perfectly. You'll still want to wear a respirator. The dust guard doesn't stop 100% of the dust, but I estimate it trapped most of it because my Shop-Vac filled up quickly.

      A:  Thank you for your question. The 18SG-5E Surface Grinding guard is compatible with all GWS series grinders including the GWS10-45P. For further assistance contact us at 1-877-Bosch-99 (1-877-267-2499), M-F 7a-7p CST.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for your question. The 18SG-5E surface grinding guard will not work with the 1375-01 grinder. It will work with all of our AG series, GWS series or 1800 series 4-1/2" and 5" angle grinders.

            Q:Will this 5 inch grind guard work with the Bosch Model 9557NB, 4-1/2" angle grinder?
            by|Aug 12, 2014
            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Thank you for your question. The Bosch 18SG-5E surface grinding guard is designed to be used with our Bosch AG series and 1800 series grinders only. The 9557NB is manufactured by Makita so it will not work.

            by|May 3, 2023

              A:  Collector is not designed or intended for that model tool.

              Bosch 5" small angle grinder Grinding guard and dust collector for a vacuum, It works well with a variety of our angle grinders that we use to grains down concrete and flooring thin set which helps us with the new OSHA Silica sand regulations, Available replacement brush rings for when they wear out, removable nose piece for flush grinding, Well made workmanship, The only hardest part is having to remove the grinding blade to install but well worth it.

              handy attachment for sure. but to make life easier get a bosch grinder first off. as for the dust collecting it works well but use of a mask is still needed. the item is mostly plastic so very little weight is added to grinder. overall it makes dirty jobs much better i would guess it cuts down 80+% of dust. i use a large dust vac and its possible with the bosch vac it may work even better. i was able to adapt it for use on a dewalt grinder but yep ended up getting a bosch and just going to leave it attached for easy use.

              Makes no sense that they don't sell replacement brushes. The 1 item that when used properly, wears out.

For further assistance, you may email us at bosch.tools@us.bosch.com or contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CST.
                Misleading compatibility description
                I purchased the angle grinder GWS10-45PE and the shroud 18SG-5E only to find out that the two are incompatible and that there is no shroud for this grinder. The description does not mention anything of sort. Now I need to return both. Bosch would have saved me a lot of time if they had been accurate in the attachment compatibility list.

                Hi there! I apologize for the experience you had in getting the GWS10-45PE grinder and the 18SG-5E dust collection attachment. The 18SG-5E is compatible with GWS10-45, GWS10-45P, GWS10-45PD (Must be used with Type 1 / 1A cutting wheel with maximum 5" diameter). It is NOT COMPATIBLE with GWS10-45E, GWS10-45DE, GWS10-45PE models. This information is found on our website under specification 'works with' of the guard: https://www.boschtools.com/us/en/boschtools-ocs/grinder-attachments-18sg-5e-27463-p/. If you have further questions please contact us at 1-877-BOSCH-99 (1-877-267-2499, M-F 7a-7p CST).
                  Will not work with 4 1/2" Bosch grinders from Home Depot.
                  Be careful. On one part of the description on this website says this part will work with Bosch AG, GW, and 1800 series 4 1/2" and 5" grinders. Then on another section it only mentions AG & 1800 series grinders. Pretty much all of the 4 1/2" & 5" Bosch grinders available through Home Depot are GWS series and I can confirm...THIS DOES NOT WORK ON 4 1/2" GW SERIES GRINDERS. I confirmed this with Bosch today after receiving the part. So, please change the description on this website. Needless to say, the grinder accessory and grinder are going back because I need both.

                    Like night and day. This dust collector works well. Without the collector, you're working in a cloud (until you can't see). With the collector you can see what you're doing and there is much less dust cleanup when you're done. A definite time saver (and it keeps OSHA happy). Build quality is excellent (like all Bosch tools). Plastic body but with a metal hub that locks to your Bosch grinder and fits well. Caveat is that it ONLY fits Bosch grinders - it is NOT a universal collector. The grinder models that it will fit (5" and smaller) are listed on the outside of the box. The hose port fits 35mm hose, which I didn't even have an adapter to fit! If you're like me and have 2 1/2" hose, you'll also need Bosch adapter VAC004 (another $5).
