The cord came wrapped up real tight so I'll have to spend some time training it not to curl up since it seems to want to curl into the disc when I'm moving it/sitting it down. Kind of annoying but that'll go away before long.
The motor feels way stronger than my Bosch did but that's probably just cause this grinder is brand new and my Bosch had over a thousand hours of hard labor on it and I forgot what that thing was like out of the box.
One gripe everybody mentioned is the stupid guard. I love the quick release on the guard since you had to unscrew the guard on the Bosch, but I didn't need a bag of guards for each task back then. I could switch from rock to cutting disc and back to my rock without problems. I never had a need for different "types" of guards. And of course this one didn't come with the Type 1 you apparently need for a cutting disc.
So, this is what you do. The reason the Type 27 guard won't work for cutting discs is because it tapers at the top. Take the guard and lay it flat on a real sturdy table, grab you a hammer, and spend a few minutes tapping around the small hole where it connects. Do this till it's flat. Now put it back on and guess what, you got a Type 1 guard. Now I can switch between cutting and grinding wheels without rubbing. It ain't a big deal.
I like this grinder. Great tool for the moneys.
As of this writing, it is miscategorized on Amazon as a grinder/cut-off. This product only comes with a grinder guard, no cut-off guard as shown in the Amazon images. Cut-off wheels will not fit with the grinder guard (even if they did, this would be potentially unsafe operation). That said, this is not the fault of Porter-Cable, simply misinformation on Amazon. Porter-Cable has another product (PC60TCTAG) which is identical to this grinder except for the model number and inclusion of a cut-off guard.
Comes with the grinder, detachable handle, grinding wheel, wrench and blade guard. (If you plan to use for cut off, you need to purchase a Type 1 Guard.)
Summary – Please note that this is the first grinder and was recently purchased to cut out rebar from concrete for a steel railing replacement. When I went to compare grinders, I kept coming back to this one based on all the features it has as well as due to the price point. I also decided to go with this as I own several over tools of this brand and never had a problem with any.
Putting that aside, this has a lot of nice features.
-Heavy duty. I weighed it and it came in at 4.4lbs which does not include any discs. I also checked other 6amp 4 ½” grinders online and average weight was 4.2 on the very low side to over 6.2lbs. Gear case is metal and casing is very heavy duty – thick.
-Has an rpm of 11,000, has spindle lock, spindle – arbor size of 5/8” – 11 and the shoulder will accept up to 7/8 non-threaded disc.
-The handle can be mounted on top or either side.
-I found the guard easy to adjust and remove.
-The cord is a good length (6’) and is flexible. Not a very heavy duty cord, however, 6 amps does not require a super heavy gauge wire.
So far it does what I needed and seems heavy duty to me. I wish the power switch was more like a drill trigger as it would be easier to control and make it easier to operate in general. The switch does have a nice lock feature so it does not need to be held the entire time.
Lastly, it would be nice if the handle was padded or rubber lined.
I am taking away one star as I had to spend almost half the price I paid for the grinder on a cut off guard. This should have been included in my opinion.
I decided an angle grinder would do a better job and be quicker. I also did not want battery life to be a limiting factor, so I wanted a corded model. I started looking for a smaller model with good review but lower price since I did not have any other projects planned that could make use of one or other projects in the past that I wished I had one.
This grinder fit the bill. It is a great value, not too heavy, has plenty of power, and can run for long stretches without overheating. And it made quick work of stripping paint using a minimally-aggressive flap wheel.
