you want an ultimate grinder, get a hold of a Walter, now you may not have heard of this grinder name but I will tell you they are probably the best grinders in the tool industry.....

Here

Have heard of them a couple times thats what i heard people praising to metabo and to be truthful wasnt very impressed with this grinder ot the other metabo at my school bog down to easy compared to my makita i will take a makita or bosch any day over metabo the only reason why metabo are a slightly better is over load protection but still i will take a makita 5 inch made in georgia over a german made metabo ;) i will check out walter have a good one

and see I like my Milwaukee grinder however if someone gave me a Walter I would throw the Milwaukee away....that is how much confidence I have with Walter....I have many hours of grinding with all kinds of Walters and hands down best grinder out there ....if you are using a Walter grinder and are not happy with it 2 things could be wrong:

NO.1 you don't know how to use a grinder and broke it

NO.2 the grinder is broken refer to NO.1

I'll run a Metabo all day everyday, and sometimes do. Absolutely love the grinders and the prices I got mine at. That being said I want to pick up a Walter and a Fein, but they are hard to find locally.

Dont u have cordless or do u have some corded metabo too

Your Metabo was probably older, the new ones are much more powerful, more so than your Makita probably..

 

 

Also, Walter cordless grinders are rebranded Metabo, so no difference there.
