This angle grinder was priced reasonably and more than sufficient for an occasional user. I used it for grinding rust, old body sealer, and cutting old sheet metal out in preparation for installing new floor pans as part of old Jeep Cherokee restoration.

I had a Black & Decker Firestorm grinder prior to buying this Ridgid. It was heavy and bulky but this Ridgid is smaller and easier to handle not to mention lighter. It has more than enough power to handle any task I've used it for. Also has one of the best warranty's in the market. I would recommend it it to anyone wanting something smaller.
