Dewalt are synonymous around the world for making excellent tools and this grinder is no exception. I've used this grinder on site daily for the last 12 months and as of yet i cant complain about a single thing! Every time I get it out of my tool box and plug it in it works, cant really ask more than that.
The construction is a combination of metal and sturdy feeling plastic, giving it a light but balanced feel when using it for a few hours. The on off button is positioned well allowing it to be switched on and off one handed with easy, even whilst wearing gloves. The spindle lock can be a little fiddly at times, but as of yet I haven't picked up a grinder that isn't. The chuck itself is great, nicely machined with a knurled edge making tool-less disc changing fairly easy, also has a small rubber o-ring stopping the discs from coming loose. The movement of the guard is fairly simple, using a sturdy metal clasp over the cheaper plastic button type, although movement of the guard is a little limited it has yet to hold me back on any jobs iv'e used it for. The cutting speed is spot on, cutting through thick steel with very little stalling of the disc. The anti vibration is quite good, better than others iv'e used but maybe not as good as the Bosch.
Durability is where this grinder comes into its own, It refuses to be broken. My grinder gets thrown around the site, dropped off ladders, left in puddles, bashed against steel, trodden on and then thrown back in the van ready for the next job. The casing has faired extremely well with no cracks and only surfaces scratches to portray its hard life.
In summary this grinder is great for the professional user, i work this grinder hard and its well up for it!
