Ridgid 18V Brushless 4-1/2 Angle Grinder

I always look at Ridgid as a sleeping giant.  Ridgid has some great tools, but they are not on everyone’s radar.  If you have been watching us for a while, you have probably seen some of our tool fights.  We usually have Ridgid mixed in the fight and almost every time they have come out on top.  They are just quality tools and they don’t beat you up on price.  Since they aren’t on everyone’s radar, I wanted to show off the Ridgid 18V 4-1/2″ angle grinder. Ridgid designed this with a brushless motor which means it’s more efficient,...

Bosch Cordless Grinder – 18V of Grinding Power Model GSW18V-50

Yesterday we posted about the new Bosch 6Ah battery, so it’s only fitting we talk today about the new Bosch cordless grinder.  In my opinion, Bosch makes the best grinders.  Just in case you were wondering, no they didn’t pay us to say that.  I had a couple older ones that I have beat the heck out of and they keep on grinding.  While they are corded versions, I wouldn’t expect anything less with their cordless version.  Now if you know Bosch, you are expecting a professional tool that will last for years, so let’s see what Bosch packed...

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Grinder Review

Now if you know me, you know I am a huge fan of Milwaukee for a number of reasons. However, I was never a big fan of their M18 grinder.  While it did the job, I had problems with the Overload Protection and how easy it would kick on.   Well guess what, Milwaukee made some changes and made this grinder a winner.  Now I am not saying that because I am a Milwaukee fan, I am saying this because it’s a cordless grinder that actually works.  It does what it should and doesn’t kick off. Milwaukee started out...
