Rated 5 out of 5 by Good tool to have Only used the tool a couple of times but it's worked well easy to change disks and guard not to heavy when prolonged use so not struggling to operate machine 19 Sep 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 Rubbish Switch The reviews going back to 2013 are quite correct the switch on this grinder is complete rubbish. Tested at Screwfix before taking home as i'd read the reviews - no problem. Used for a couple of hours switch gets progressively harder to turn on till it reaches the point where it wont turn on at all. Have been through 2 machines now exactly the same problem - basic design fault. Switched to a Dewalt 1935F now - much better all round machine. 25 Jun 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst buy ever Bought to replace Dewalt that only lasted 6 months, assembled it, went to switch on and the switch just dropped off. So I can't comment on the practical usage - but it doesn't bode well for their products, needless to say it being returned for a refund. Might just be a dodgy one off but it has put me off ever buying their stuff. 22 Jun 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by The Switch Locks on At Random I am sorry but I really dislike this tool because the switch locks on and the tool is very difficult to turn off, it has always been like this, it is a feature of the tool. I wish that I purchased a grinder with a bigger switch, remember you will need to be able to operate the switch with gloves on. 4 Jun 2015
