Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grinder This is my second hitachi grinder. The first one got used all the time. It worked well and when it finally gave up, I had no problem getting another one. Great product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful ! Works well but batteries are drained in seconds. Has been back to Hitachi twice with no faults found (battery or grinder)! I use for occasional light grinding. (used to grind heads of some screws - took 3 full 18v 1.5Ah batteries + some of a fourth to remove 4 screw heads (size No 8) securing a bench to the ground. Requires 2 batteries to give my lawnmower blade a brief (about a minute) resharpen on the mower - not a "full" sharpen. Hitachi tell me that the grinder is not suitable for my type of use so I presume it's for people who don't use it! The batteries last well in my drills and drivers (100+ 3 inch No 8 screws into wood). Either a terrible machine or terrible service from Hitachi warranty people (possibly both). Have, now, bought a second hand generator so I can use my mains grinder away from the house. More hassle getting there but much less irritating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from User Error Useful little tool, light weight and well balanced but have yet to see how much life can be had out of the battery. Unfortunately on getting it out of the box I discovered that it was not compatible with the 18V LiON Hitachi batteries on the drill I already have so had to purchase a new set of 'slide in' batteries and charger which have added considerably to the cost. Could do with providing clear information/links on bare tool description pages referencing the model number of the battery and charger that will be also required. On the plus side have equipped the grinder with the latest 4Ah batteries so hoping for increased life - 33% apparently.

Will the bsl18 25 2.5ah fit the grinder wil it affect its performance just been a 2.5 ah

Asked by: Doug247

How do you remove the brush cap. Screwdriver slot suggests it unscrews (conventional thread?). Figure in manual suggests it should be levered out. Like to confirm it is screw fit before breaking something.

BTW: presumably this is the usual reason for poor performance and uneven rotation speed
Asked by: radioengineer
Thanks for the confirmation. One brush cap was very stiff but did did release and unscrew. Brush lead was disconnected from the terminal. Still unable to withdraw the brush to fit new one. The other brush cap refuses to budge and now I have damaged the slot so not usable. Given issues on the other brush may not be worth finding an alternate way of removing the cap. When bored on wet day may resort to stripping the machine to fix from inside. In interim work demands have necessitated purchase of new bare machine.

I have a KC18DGL/JA Code 228F will the battery's fit the grinder?

Asked by: Jasper23
HI Jasper23 All HITACHI 18v slide batteries fit all HITACHI 18v slide tools. So the short answer is yes. Please bare n mind the batteries you do have are 1.5Ah and may not have the best run time on a high drain toll like the G18DSL/L4. A suitable high drain battery would be the BSL1850 (18v 5.0Ah Li-ion Battery), Screwfix code 4246D Kind Regards The HITACHI Q&A Team
