    A:  Hi there! The Bosch Grinder is designed for metal grinding, though you can use a cutting disc for metal cutting but it is not the same as the saw. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

          I use to use the bulldog when I did construction. Great for light duty around the house. The grinder works pretty well also. I have used several and it holds up to the Makita which was my favorite. I bought the set because of the price. But needed the chipper for a small project.
