Blade cover was easy to remove and attach. One of these days I may actually use it.
Quality, long power cord with long lasting strain relief. (You know the tool will eventually be carried by the cord.)
It has excellent torque for a small motor. Difficult to bog down unless I'm using a large diamond disc.
I have abused and misused this grinder to the point I thought I'd kill it. I blow it out and it works as good as new. It has held up to regular all day long use.
I have never been disappointed with a Bosh tool. This is no exception.
After reading some reviews on other resources than here it looked like some bosch grinders really had great balance and let me tell you I was definitely not disappointed.
Besides what others have said about the variable speed, and the slow startup (both very nice features btw) I would like to add some other comments however. The balance on this grinder is absolutely amazing. Everything feels so smooth I've even one handed some things and felt totally comfortable doing so (of course, I wouldn't recommend for others to do the same as it isn't the safest).
I have used this tool on a range of mediums, from sanding down some wood edges with the grit wheels, to taking down a fiberglass sub box I've been creating, to cutting off some loose screws hanging from the studs in my garage. Through all the tools has felt wonderfully balanced and incredibly receptive to whatever you toss at it.
2 things no one else has mentioned yet is that the cord is made out of the higher quality rubber/plastic and is the type where when it is in extreme cold temperatures it stays malleable and flexible. This is a relief to some other corded tools that stiffen up horribly in the cold.
Also, I will say the only downside i have to this tool is that the trigger is extremely difficult to press forward and hold forward, so I nearly ALWAYS find myself locking the grinder on.Read more ›
Unfortunately it bogs down constantly when I use it and is essentially worthless for any heavy duty grinding tasks. It might be great if you need a light-duty variable speed grinder but otherwise it's a waste of money; might as well just buy a cordless. Bosch doesn't seem to make any 5" grinders over 10 amps.
Also I found the switch to be inconveniently located and annoying to use.

The on/off switch is poorly designed. Other than that, it is a great angle grinder. Don't know how I lived without it.Published 20 months ago by Joel W. King
Normally I love Bosch tools, but after not many uses, this tool started smoking and shooting out sparks, needless to say I sent it back.Published 21 months ago by MICHAEL LYNN ADKINS
Great for using on a variety of material - slow for wood, fast for metal, etc. This enables you to control the cutting/polishing and prevents too much removal of material.Published on August 10, 2013 by Amazon Customer
