Titan TTB283GRD 9" Angle Grinder 230V
Faulty soft starter
brought this to cut up 6mm chequered plate. after not even a day the grinder failed.
after checking internals and brushes fault was found to be the soft starter. Looking on the web there seems to be a reoccurring fault with this part.
The age old saying seems to apply here, buy cheap, buy twice!!
you have been warned.

Removing disc major problem
Found the grinder easy to set up but to remove the cutting disc was impossible after use. I used the correct tool supplied and depressed the locking spindle. And all that happened was the 2 pinned leaver that removes the locking nut just bent in my hands. I will be returning the grinder right away as it was the first time I used it that this happened.

Excellent, Powerful Tool
I bought the 5kg Titan hammer drill, which after much abuse, continues to perform magnificently.
So, to the 9" grinder. Good tool box, nice to have a grinding and a separate cutting guard.
Excellent to be able to rotate the rear handle - depending on cut direction - makes the grip a lot more secure and controllable.
. . . . AND POWER, CONTROLLABLE, SOFT START, POWER!!
With a diamond blade this made short work of solid concrete and drainage pipes, engineering bricks and roofing stones. It has been cutting all day for the last 4 days and is not phased, long may it continue.

Does the job
With a half decent diamond blade, this grinder matches any other I have used for power and speed of cutting. I abused this machine for over two years, cutting reinforced concrete floor beams and lintels amongst other things. Last week the motor gave up the ghost but I had no hesitation in buying another to replace it. Love the swivel handle feature for cutting more easily from different angles.
