Style Name: 6.0 Amp
I was installing a new sink in the kitchen and had to enlarge the opening to accomodate it, which meant cutting through granite tile. After much research, it seemed the best way to do it was to use an angle grinder fitted with a diamond blade. I didn't want to make a big investment so I found the Porter-Cable model at Lowe's for $39.99 and was all set to buy it, but this model was right next to it for only $5 more -- plus it came with a case and 5 grinding disks. I'd read that the Hitachi was a solid tool so I went for it. I sure am glad I did -- it is incredible! So small but with so much power, and is very solidly built. Changing the disk was simple. I was very pleased. For general use, it's more than sufficient for most DIY'ers.

I am puzzled why the Hitachi's handle is angled slightly inward -- all the other grinders have their handles at a 90-degree angle from the body. It didn't affect performance, but I don't see the rationale.

At any rate, it's totally worth it. With the diamond blade, it made a 1" deep, 36" long cut through GRANITE in about 4 minutes (including brief rests) -- I was amazed. I used a Hitachi diamond blade for dry cutting -- it was incredible!

I now have four of the best quality grinders on the market. Without telling you all the brands I wanted this grinder because of the quality put into Hitachi products. This is a very well made 4 1/2 inch grinder with a heavy duty rating & great quality. The grinder is a few onces heaver but that is why it's more heavy duty. I placed a 3/4" diamond blade in this grinder and had no problem removing concrete & mortar in one pass between the brick joints. None of my other grinders could handle the size or load this grinder can handle. Hitachi puts out fantastic quality tools for pros and homeowners. If you need this type of tool don't waste your money on a cheap grinder, this one will put the others to shame.

I bought this about a year ago and every time I use it I like it more. This tool feels solid, powerful, and comfortable to hold. I particularly like the fact that I can move the handle to either the right or left side depending on what I'm cutting and where I want to hold. The carying case is great too and keeps everything, including wheels, in one handy place. Drop a cut-off wheel in this and say goodbye to your Dremel. (Check out the Dewalt cut-off disks though as other brands don't have the 7/8" arbor in a 4.5" disk.) I have to admit that I'm not using this thing every day, but I would expect that for any user except a contract this should be all you need, and a at good price.

We use this grider to trim the hoofs on our dairy cattle. It is the only one that has lasted more than 1 yr. We are on our 3rd one now. A little on the heavy side, but the durability is worth the extra weight. Until we found this grinder, we were going through different one every week to a month. I've bought 3 and I'll buy more.

Price is little steep @ $90 but is well worth it!

Paddle switch is very well designed it locks on easily one-handed ( I tried dewalt's and it did not work nearly as well)

Seems a little heavy @ first but is really easy to handle

Wish they included a case though

Works well with sanding kit

out of the box it is obvious that it is a quality product. I have suckered myself into buying cheap tools more times than I care to admit. this is not one of those times. easy to change wheels ,good power & balance. the reason for the four? I don't like the fat handle but I don't see this as a major issue.

I used to use an air angle grinder, but I no longer have the big compressor needed to run it, so I got this electric one instead. Once I received it, I was surprised to find how large it was! Despite it's size and weight, it feels comfortable in the hand and it works flawlessly. I even went to Lowes and bought a cutting wheel for it (as it only comes with grinding wheels).

Hitachi seems to specialize in delivering above-average tools at below-average prices. This grinder is powerful, fast, and durable. The toolless guard helps a ton, and can be used as a fence in a pinch (used a diamond wheel and straight edge to cut tile-- worked perfectly!).

There's no a whole lot to say about a grinder, other than lighter is better. This grinder isn't super-light, but not unmanageably heavy. 9 Amps is about all you'll ever need in a small grinder.

I'm not sure I like the paddle switch. I think I'd prefer a trigger switch, which is hard to find on a small angle grinder (they generally either have paddle switches or the sliding switches). The paddle switch on this unit doesn't seem to cooperate all the time-- it will lock on when you don't want it to, and it will fail to lock on at other times. I admit this is probably operator error on my part, but I have struggled with it from time to time.

Overall, this is a capable grinder at a great price. I believe the Bosch and Makita units to be the cream of the class, but they cost a bunch more, too.
