An angle grinder is an essential power tool for any home or professional workshop. As versatile as it is powerful, a good grinder tool will make short work of major tasks around the home, garage and construction site alike.

What Are Angle Grinders Used For? 

An angle grinder is an extremely versatile power tool, designed to be used for four main tasks.

  • Grinding: As their name suggests, angle grinders are great for grinding down excess material or sharp edges. They're often used to smooth rough edges on masonry or remove waste metal from welded joints.
  • Cutting: Grinder tools can make smooth and precise cuts in metal, masonry and ceramics. Small angle grinders are easier to handle than saws and can often cut materials in-place. 
  • Sanding: A large angle grinder can sand medium-sized areas of stone or metal when fitted with a sanding disc, similar to sheet sanders and orbital sanders.
  • Polishing: Grinders are ideal for polishing up surfaces thanks to their high-speed revolutions.

Whichever task you're tackling, getting the right grinder tool will make it easier. 

Angle Grinder Considerations 

Angle Grinder Disc Diameter 

Larger discs can make deeper cuts, while smaller discs can provide more accurate grinding and polishing performance. We carry grinders with discs from 4 inches up to 9 inches to suit both delicate and heavy-duty tasks.

Grinder Speed 

Faster rotation speeds mean easier cutting, while slower speeds help you achieve more precise and delicate control. We stock grinders with speeds of 6,000 to 13,000 RPM, with variable speed models available to offer the best of both worlds.

Power Source and Amperage 

We carry angle grinders to run off mains supplies of 110/120V, along with cordless grinder models from 18V upward for greater portability. Amp ratings from 5A to 15A will let you choose the right amount of power to get your job done safely, efficiently and quickly.

Brushed or Brushless Grinder Design 

Angle grinders with brushed motors offer an economical design that's suitable for home use or occasional heavy-duty work. Brushless grinders last longer without repair and are usually more powerful, making them a top choice for professionals.

Essential Safety Features for Angle Grinder Tools 

As with any power tools, safety is important for angle grinders. Look for essential features including:

  • Adjustable guards to protect against sparks and debris. 
  • Anti-vibration design for comfortable use over long periods.
  • Paddle switches to force two-handed operation. 
  • Anti-kickback function to protect against trapped grinder blades.
  • Slow-start motor to gradually increase rotation speed, particularly useful for preventing twisting on large, powerful angle grinders.
