What is an angle grinder?
Angle grinders, also known as a side grinders or disc grinders, serve the purpose of cutting, grinding and polishing a variety of materials such as concrete, ceramics, rock, timber and metal. Even though the functional principle is basically the same for all angle grinders, the different designs still vary in terms of size and performance.
It is for this reason that not each angle grinder is equally suitable for every application scenario. To avoid a bad buy, we provide you with the information necessary for a well-conceived purchase decision, e.g. which accessories to use for which purpose.
Angle grinders – what to take into account for your purchase decision
Angle grinder types
The first angle grinders very made of solid cast iron and extremely heavy, also the shape was not exactly wieldy. Sure they make part of the work easier for the craftsmen, but using them was still a strenuous effort. Today’s models are much lighter and consequently easier to use. Through the years the following designs were developed – all with pros and cons …
• Mini angle grinders
Mini angle grinders like the PAGS 10-115 use cutting discs with a diameter of up to 115 mm. They are best suited for cutting metal, but quickly reach their limits with concrete.
• One-hand angle grinders
Relatively handy and comparatively light devices such as our angle grinder PAGS 10-125 for single-handed operation do a good job in assisting hobby craftsmen in their work. With a diameter of about 125 mm the discs of these flexible tools are somewhat larger than those of the mini angle grinder and can cut through tougher materials such as thin concrete slabs.
• Two-hand angle grinders
Bimanually guided angle grinders such as our PAGS 10-230 are genuine pro tools. The cutting discs have a diameter of approx. 230 mm and can even cut up concrete flooring or massive slabs of concrete. Unfortunately these powerful devices are heavier and therefore not as easy to handle.
Before making your decision on which angle grinder to buy, you should be absolutely clear about what you mostly want to use the device for.
