What angle grinder do you recommend?

AngleGrinder.jpgI've got two 100mm angle grinders, a Makita and a Work-zone. Both work well but the Makita is easier to change discs and a good feel in the hand. I use a rotary hacksaw blade in the Makita for cutting timber and light metals. 1mm cutting discs for metal cutting and a grinding wheel on the Work-zone. Overall, the Makita is a better unit and I find it indispensable for the more delicate tasks. - cadsman

 

125mm cordless Bosch sits in my not too little and not too big spot. If I was still a welder full time I would use a corded tool in a workshop. - Brad

 

There is a trade-off between all the angle grinders. The larger sizes that have the most wattage will get the job done the fastest, however, they are awkward to handle and have limited usage in other applications. Smaller grinders are easier to handle and can be used in a variety of other situations, though they might lack the power necessary for some jobs. - MitchellMc

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @dimitri. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about angle grinder selection.

 

All of our available angle grinders will be capable of cutting screws off, so your choice comes down to budget and compatibility with any other tools you might have. For instance, if you already have any Ryobi 18V tools and batteries, I recommend you go with a 115mm Ryobi cordless angle grinder. If budget were a concern, then the basic 100mm Ozito angle grinder would be more than capable of this job.

 

If you can let us know a bit more about your purchase, like if this is a one-off job or if you have other uses for the tool, then I trust our members will be able to provide some recommendations too.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Mitchell
