Metabo W24-180 7" Angle Grinder or Ridgid 7" Twist Handle?


Recommended Posts

I've had a Makita 4" grinder since 1984 that's still running strong. In need of something larger, I borrowed a friend's older Metabo 6" with twist handle. I like it so much, I don't want to give it back! Super smooth, not too big, and perfect power

A grinder this size will make my life a lot easier and open doors to how I do many projects. After using this twist handle, I've made up my mind that feature is a must for me. I looked at the 7" Ridgid at Home Depot and it feels good in hand. $129. The reviews seem a little mixed though. I can get a new 7" Metabo W24-180 for $189.

This is a tool I would not use day in and day out. But I appreciate quality and a tool that runs smooth... yet I am not a man of large means. Is the Metabo worth $60 more than the Ridgid?

Any insight and/or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!
