There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was suspicious of getting an 8-inch grinder for a little more than $100. I only ordered this one because my brother has the same grinder and told me it works fine. He was here when I plugged the grinder in and he couldn't believe how poorly it ran. His tool is older so maybe he bought his when DeWalt still cared about quality. This makes me suspicious of ALL DeWalt tools.
UPDATE: While waiting for UPS to pick up the grinder for return, we spent some time diagnosing the problem(s). The cone washers that hold the wheels are stamped and, as others have noted, they aren't necessarily flat/true. But we also found that the shoulder on the shaft that the inside cone washer seats against had a high spot on it. So even if I replaced or machined the cone washers, the wheel would never run true.
These are simple machines: no gears or complex mechanisms, just a motor with an extended shaft. It's almost harder to make it wrong than to make it right. It's not a "made in China" problem. The Apple computer I'm using to write this review was also made in China and it's a beautifully crafted machine. It's a failure by DeWalt to ensure their products adhere to even modest QA/QC standards.
My 36 grit wheel has excessive run out, which creates vibration. It's serviceable, but the resulting vibration kills bearings. I will change out the wheel before it shorten's the tools lifespan. At this price, DeWalt ought to ship a better wheel, or charge $5 more, of you have too. This is easily fixed, yet DeWalt seems to be ignoring the problem. Not good for your reputation, folks.
I've recently started purchasing more Bosch and other products over the DeWalt. They are well engineered and I've had better lifespan and performance from them. Too bad, I prefer to buy American, but I'm not paying 5 star prices for 4 star gear. Quit being cheap lazy and fix the wheels quality issue.
Get the 8", as the 6" grinder is pretty much useless .... The wheels on the 8" extend well past the motor housing, allowing the grinding, sharpening, polishing of odd shaped and long projects ..... It is heavy enough that you need not bolt it down unless you want to ..... I replaced the course wheel with a Dewalt fine cut wire wheel with no fit or spin problems ....
I see some reviews that complain about vibration .... Of the 10's of thousands of grinders that Dewalt has sold, I'm sure it is the exception and not the rule that you will get a lemon ..... Amazon? , send it back if you do ..... Mine does not vibrate any more than I would expect two heavy stones to vibrate, spinning at this speed ..... It does not move while turned on and not bolted to the work bench ..... And for those curious, it takes 5min, 2secs for the two stones wheels to come to a complete stop after turning the grinder off from full speed .....
I recommend this and would buy again if I had too .......
Vibrates a little as the wheels have a very slight axial (side to side) wobble. It will sit on the bench without moving. Since it's a straight induction motor it starts slowly, but once spun up seems to have good torque. I'm sure if I lean into it with a large piece of stock I could bog it down.
The guard for the right side was bent (outward?) and since the tool rest attaches to it, it was misaligned initially.
A little tincture of rubber mallet remedied the situation and all is well. Don't know how this happened since the whole thing was in a Styrofoam clamshell (intact) and although the outer box was scuffed up, it did not look like it had been dropped.
Another nice feature would have been to provide the ability to hook the guard vents to a dust collection system but they are oddly shaped rectangles so I will have to fabricate a connector and some sort of intermediate spark trap.
