I couldn't find anyone who had reviewed this product but I thought I would take a chance and buy it since Kawasaki outdoor equipment always seemed to perform well. Big mistake! The grinder nearly shook itself off my bench. The wheels that came with it weren't true but even putting on a new Norton wheel didn't help. The shoulder on the shaft where the large flange washer sits is barely larger than the shaft so there is very little contact area with the washer which makes it sit somewhat sideways giving the large vibration. I can't believe that this made it through quality control. Shame on Kawasaki for such a poorly made tool.

It went back to Amazon who did their typical great job on sending the shipping information and refunding the money. I ended up buying the Jet 8" grinder which is worth every penny.

The right hand wheel had a bad (bad!) wobble. It rubbed against the side of the shield on every rotation and the vibration was tremendous. Took the wheel off to see if I could improve it, but was unable to do so. It's going back.

First off when someone see's it's a Kawasaki brand most of us think of a Japanese made product. This product is made in China and lacks quality. The grinding stones on this product are poor quality as the bore hole through the stones is crumbling when you take them off the grinder. I would not purchase another one but I had to find out why everyone who bought this item had so many problems. The shaft is straight and runs well without the grinding stones on it. I will see if new stones will improve the performance along with new washers to see if this is salvageable. I'll get back if I can get it working so you will know what you will have to do to make it work like a grinder should.

This is a good serviceable grinder but the arbors won't accept 1" wide wheels. Also the angle of the tool rests are not adjustable. I had already purchased expensive 1" wide grinding wheels to use in sharpening lathe tools so i sent this one back and bought the Dewalt model.

I place the order for this bench grinder in May. I had fallen ill earlier in the year and wanted the Grinder to be ready to mount when I was able to get back to my shop. I thought since it was a Kawasaki that it would be a good product, how wrong I was. July 25th I went to my shop, pulled the Grinder from the box was removing the Styrofoam and the bottom Fell off the grinder. Upon inspection I discovered that it was broken. As you can see in the attached pictures that the cast iron that it is made of is really thin, esp. for such a heavy tool. I contacted Service at All Trade Tools the representative told me to send pictures and a copy of the receipt to her and she would take care of it, at that point I was just trying to buy a new base. I've e-mailed them several times with follow up phone calls and was just told it was waiting on manager approval. It is now August 13th and still no base and no solution. I know now that buying power tools from All Tools must have been my first mistake and Buying Kawasaki was the second, the third thinking that they would rectify the problem. My advise is DO NOT BUY FROM ALL TOOLS OR BUY KAWASAKI. This in no way affects how I value Amazon.

Nice bench grinder for the price. Well made, plenty of power. It does however vibrate a lot more than grinders in the same price range. I'm thinking its just poor quality wheels that are off-balance. Maybe after I dress the wheel it will reduce the vibration. Only 3 stars because of the bad vibration.

Vibrates like crazy, so much that you can barely hold a mower blade in place on the tool rest. Reset both wheels to try to resolve issue but it only helped a little. It will also throw sparks when spinning up for a little while due to the housings touching somewhere inside the cover. I'm hoping that it's performance will get better with some use,
