what do I buy??

I'm about to start cutting and hacking the rusted floor out of my 86 K5 blazer, and I've been hearing from just about everyone that a grinder would make the process go much smoother. Simple logical tells me that also. So I need to buy one. So here's the problem.. I know Jack Sh*t about grinders, and could use some help deciding.. Any info would help me out a lot. I do have *some* metal cutting tools already. A hack-saw and a sawzall, as well as a few other little odds and ends, but a grinder is much needed. Thanks!!

Hey tool...

You might want to post this on the General 4x4 forum, too. You'll probably get a lot more responses there.

Just a thought....[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Buy a Makita (sp?) - the blue ones, they are the best.

Every plant/mill/construction site I've worked on uses them almost exclusively, they'll take a beating and keep on grinding.

thanks for the replies... yeah I suppose I should have put a lil more thought into where i was posting this =) oops! thanks again, I've also heard good things about makita, and I'll probably end up going with something made by them.
