  • New 5" grinder

    I posted awhile back asking if anyone used 5" grinders. I have an excellent Milwaukee 7" and a Makita 4" already. I was given a box of 5" wheels and this started me thinking about getting a 5" grinder. The 4" is 3.5 amps and is not all that powerful. I started looking around and settled on DeWalt Model DW831; I liked the longer body rather than the barrel grip like most 5" models. I was checking DeWalt's site and found a link to Tool King. The grinder retails for $149. Tool King sells it refurbished for $95 but had a special for $79 with free shipping. I apparently got the last one they had. Inspite of free shipping there is a $6 handling charge which brought the total to $85. The grinder arrived yesterday and I tried it out this morning. Plenty of power, 12 amps, and perfect fit beteween 4-4 1/2" and larger tools.
    Tool King's service was great.
