Hitachi G12SS/CD 4Â½" Angle Grinder 240V
I got this grinder as a replacement for one that stopped working. I had bought it for a specific purpose. I used it for 3 hours with no problems, doing a good job. On the second time of use later the same day after about 20 minutes it stopped working. All fuses checked, machine dead. I got a replacement from Screwfix, new machine is working, how long for remains to be seen.

Ok tool, I keep turning it off by accident when using one handed, on/off switch could be in better place

Bought this grinder to cut a dozen or so concrete flags rather than hire a stone saw or similar. Did the job easily with the diamond tipped blade in the case and I still own what seems like a good quality product.
Only gave four stars for reliability because not used it enough yet to give it a proper score.

This is a 580Watt not 730Watt
I ordered this product which said on the website and book that it was a 730 Watt. When it arrived I checked the label on the body of the grinder and it was only 580 Watt. So both the book and website are incorrect.
This needs to be changed on the website, as although I can see this grinder is very good quality the 580 Wattage would not have had the durability of the 730 Watt and is not enough power for what I require. This has wasted a lot of my time and now I have to take this back to get a refund. I understand human error happens but feel that for it to be incorrect on both the website and in the book is a poor show. Had I not examined the label on the grinder I might have overloaded it's use. I do however recommend Hitachi products.
