Angle grinders are handheld power tools primarily used for grinding and polishing. They can also be used for a variety of metal fabrication jobs that include cutting, deburring, finishing, and removing excess material from your metalwork.
The most common types of grinders are powered by electricity, either corded or battery-powered. The smaller versions of these handheld power tools are more versatile, lighter and tend to operate at much higher rpm rates than the larger ones, giving more precise clean cuts. Larger metal angle grinders have a more powerful motor to allow for deeper cutting and more heavy-duty removal of material, although they do tend to be heavier and bulkier.
So when you are looking for new power tools and angle grinders, be sure you take into consideration the application you will use them for. In certain situations, you may need a more powerful motor and the deep cutting it provides, but, if you are working in tight spaces or on smaller projects, a smaller angle grinder will likely be more beneficial.
Engweld stocks a large range of angle grinders from big brands such as Milwaukee, Bosch & Hikoki. Please do contact us if you can't find the grinder you're looking for.
What to consider when buying an angle grinder:
The following factors should be considered when buying an angle grinder:
The size of the disc should have a direct bearing on your choice of angle grinder. The two most common disc sizes are 4.5” (115mm) and 9” (230mm). Grinders with larger discs are particularly well suited to heavy-duty applications, whereas those with smaller discs are ideal for finer work. Additionally, it’s worth bearing in mind that smaller grinders have a relatively high RPM and smaller discs are also more prone to wearing down quite rapidly.
