Q:Does the R1006 work with the Ridgid 4” Diamond Cup Wheel?
by|Jan 30, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello, Chris - Use only Type 27 depressed center grinding wheels. Never attach a Type 1 straight or cut-off wheel to this angle grinder. Use of any other wheel is not recommended and creates a hazard, which will result in serious injury. We hope this helps! If you need further support, then call or text us at 1.866.539.1710, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (EST), or through email when you visit us at https://register.ridgidpower.com/contact.

    Q:Is this 4 1/2 inch right angle grinder (Model R1006) compatible with the 4.5 in. Turbo Cup Wheel HD-TAW45P1? I want to grind the cement paint off my small cement porch. Will those two items do the job? Please let me know.

          Corded is GREAT again
          Ridgid 4 ½ inch Corded Angle Grinder After purchasing a large number of the battery powered grinders, I have found those tools to be of great value when working in the field. That being said when working in or around the shop the use of a corded tool is preferred. This Ridgid 4 1/2-inch grinder gives you all of the power and versatility you need. The corded tool still does the job and if that's what you began with it actually gives you the reliability you want. The improvements in the tools design learned over time are all included. The self-locking button, to change cutting, grinding, or wire brushing attachments is easy to use. Basically, you'll find that those corded tools, that most of us started with, have gotten better over the years, while the industry has moved farther and farther to battery driven tool market the corded tools have gotten the same improvements.

            Would need to own it little longer to have better idea of how long it lasts, but so far so good.

            The grinder works well. The registration IS HARD to complete because I bought it on line. I Am still trying to get it registered it at this time. If I can’t register it when my 90 days is up, I will return it!

            Exactly the tool I needed to accomplish project at a reasonable price.
            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.
