Hi everyone, I have a new Advancedgrind cordless angle grinder which uses an angle grinder clamping nut to secure discs. When I stop the grinder the disc and clamping nut fly off! This is rather disconcerting to say the least. I have carefully followed the instructions in the manual and have so far only tried it with a flap disc. I have contacted Bosch, but no response yet. I can only think that the angle grinder locking nut is faulty - is this likely to be the problem? Has anyone else had the same issue? Looking forward to hearing from you.
Hey guys, I'm looking for a new angle grinder. Should be used to grind metals and clean weld seams. Really like the Bosch cordless grinders but don't have experience with battery powered angle grinders. See here: https://www.boschtools.com/us/en/boschtools-ocs/cordless-angle-grinders-35699-c/ Does anyone have experience with the Bosch Tools or any other suggestions? Marcus
I'm looking to buy an angle grinder and would like to know what people think of my below options. If you have other suggestions, I'm all ears I won't be a heavy user, but I do want to get a decent grinder that'll last me a while and won't need much maintenance. I'm planning to use it to do some light metal cutting and cleaning using a wire brush. The prices below are in Canadian dollars since that's where I live. The 3 that I'm looking at right now are: 1) DEWALT DW831 5-Inch Medium Angle Grinder https://www.amazon.ca/DEWALT-DW831-5-Inch-Medium-Grinder/dp/B00004TQH9/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1467907790&sr=1-2 $100 (regular $240) - sale price 2) Dewalt DWE402 4-1/2-Inch 11-Amp Paddle Switch Angle Grinder https://www.amazon.ca/DEWALT-DWE402-2-Inch-11-Amp-Grinder/dp/B00RVZ7DNO/ref=sr_1_5?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1467907790&sr=1-5 $100 (regular $160) - sale price 3) Bosch 1375A 4-1/2-Inch Angle Grinder https://www.amazon.ca/Bosch-1375A-2-Inch-Angle-Grinder/dp/B00004SUOU/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 $50 I know that the Bosch is not as powerful as the 2 Dewalts, but I was just putting it in the mix to see what thoughts anyone may have on it?
After the Dewalt media event 2015 I feel a bit dissapointed with what they showed. Milwaukee had some more interesting tools at their event IMO. Everybody has said that 2015 is the year for Dewalt to shine, but so far I'm not that impressed. What I'm hoping for in the 20V cordless line at this moment is: -Updated jigsaw with barrel grip (maybe brushless, but that will increase the price tag of course) -Brushless, more powerful circular saw -Brushless angle grinder -Brushless compact impact wrench. Take the technology from the new DCF899 and smash it in the form factor of the DCF880 These new tools will keep me on the yellow path and not mix in to team red. Not that I would mind those tools from Milwaukee but I intend to stick to one 18V/20V platform
