Re: Harbor Freight Grinders
Just a heads up..
I use the dewalt DW402 4 1/2 grinder. They seem to be real close to unkillable. When i worked at the junkyard we had two of them. Which one got left in the rain, which one got dropped, which one went through a ton of wheels. We couldnt kill them. So i bought some for myself.
I bought all of mine on ebay. I have 4 of them. I didnt pay more they 40 bucks for any of them. I have one that grinds, one that cuts, one with a flap wheel, and one with a wire brush. I hate changing wheels. One of them was so new, it couldnt have been used twice. Two of them came from a repair place, they were there for new cords and nobody ever came and picked them up. So they were just unloading a bunch of them. I think i got the two of them for less then 30 bucks.
If you want a grinder that lasts thats a good one to buy. And if you watch ebay, you will find a deal.
But for 20 bucks the harbor freight one is still a deal.
