Questions & Answers

When I use this grinder the guard moves how can I fix that

Asked by: Daniel
you may have the guard model that you are able to move (adjust) by bumping it against something and without tools. That is a plus, not a minus

Is there a variable speed 4 1/2" Dewalt angle grinder or a Makita?

Asked by: Mike
See Makita model # 9565CV (Internet #202517737 Store SO SKU #1000388803). Variable speed, but much pricier.

Can it be possible to use it as a sander?

Asked by: Chris
If you're talking about using it on wood the answer is NO. It can be used for smoothing and polishing on granite, steel or fiberglass if you buy a fine grit flapper disc not a regular grinding disc. A grinding disc made for steel will clog up quick if used on wood.

Customer Reviews

120-Volt 4-1/2 in. Corded Small Angle Grinder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little grinder and in a case too! I bought this grinder when Home Depot had Dewalt tools on sale. I was looking for a grinder that was smaller (that is that I could use it with only one hand) than the one that I had at the time which was bulky even though it was also a 4" grinder. Picky, I know, but there you go. After having researched different brands of 4" grinders, I ended up with the opinion that Dewalt's grinder was as good as I could get. On top of that, this one had a case which is important to me (storage, protection, etc.) I've used it a few times since and it does its job extremely well. I cut through some pretty thick bolts and it had no problems at all. Now, a bit of a 'fatherly' suggestion. When using this tool (like pretty well all power tools) it's extremely wise to use some protection. For this tool in specific, gloves and long sleeves protect from flying metal shards. Safety glasses or a face shield (lighter welder type), again, protect from the same shards. BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY, for the purpose of this review is EAR PROTECTION. I ignored advice about protecting my hears when I was younger (what I call ‘Indestructible Youth Syndrome’). As a result, I've lost some higher register hearing ability and I've also developed a condition which is called tinnitus. The symptoms of tinnitus are a constant (24/7, 365 days per year) high-pitch whistle in my ears. The doctor told me that I HAVE TO WEAR ear protection now so as to stop the condition from getting worse. By they way, guys and gals, there's no cure for this. It won't kill you but it sure is a drag. PROTECT YOURSELF when using power tools. You, just like my father and me, are not indestructible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats Ryobi I just burned up another brand that was less than two years old. Decided to upgrade to a quality tool. This grinder has so much more cutting power than the old one. I took a chance and replaced a 25 year old Hilti that finally gave up on me. I think that this is going to be a great replacement for the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewalt 1.8-Horsepower 4.5-Inch Small Angle Grinder OK. A little background on what I do. I am not just a DIY'er. I am a professional remodeler and construction professional by trade and I do this stuff for a living. It supports my family and I and is not just a hobby. A horrendous experience with the DWS780 caused me to be somewhat dubious of the Dewalt brand, but after listening to advice from another professional, I took my chances and bought one of these. My old Makita finally gave up the ghost after 5 years of use. My main uses are cutting slates, removing old screws, cutting pipe, brick, etc. After 20 something years in Biz, I've learned to spend more money on good tools. This unit has power to spare. We sometimes have to use thermal Bluestone that is 2-2.5 inches thick and this cuts it like butter. Also get some Tyrolit grinding wheels and diamond blades from Diamond Products because they are the best on the market IMO. But any brand blade or wheel seems to cut faster on yellow and teal grinders than almost everything else we've used, because the spindle is always turning very quickly but also receiving plenty of power. And if you look at it for a few days, but do not buy, you often find offers for a few dollars less in the coming days and weeks. I didn't do that; I never go cheap on my tools. I was just unsure which unit to purchase. I think I made the right decision. And even as a homeowner? I think this would last a lifetime, as well as do every job you need it to do. So for the homeowner, but especially the pro, this gets a big thumbs up from me. (And because of how well it works, it may very well maintain your thumb, allowing you to give the thumbs up for the remainder of a lifetime.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beast for the price! I bought this angle grinder to go with a deck refinishing disc to remove stubborn latex paint off a deck surface. This unit worked flawlessly. Lots of power, minimal vibration, and super easy to clean and adjust. Did a whole 300sqft deck over 4 days and it didn't break a sweat. Great unit, no complaints at all.
