Cheapest price so far according to camelcamelcamel.

Green is the DIY range and Blue are the Professional range and for less than £10 more think I'd go for Pro.

Bosch professional tools are great tools its true. In my experience though angle grinders are very simple tools and generally last for years anyway unless mistreated. However the link you posted is a very good price.

Grinder is something different in my neck of the woods

Don't think this comes with any cutting disks.

Are you insinuating you are some sort of professional?

What you get up to is your business!

Good for grinding angles.

Not as good as a Hatton garden Hilti.

Agreed, I think my one is this or it certainly looks almost exactly the same, had it for years no issues what so ever, gets used all the time.

Same price at Homebase this weekend

Ordered, thanks

I still don't understand!

Is this wood cutter?

Just to let you all know, the main thing you should be looking for in a 115mm angle grinder (besides a decent make) is the slimness of the body, because they tend to be quite fat, and if you can't grab them properly, it's not only tiring, so you can't keep working for any extended periods of time, but it's obviously also potentially much more dangerous. That is the main reason I'd recommend the pro one for £35, as it looks slimmer (I could be wrong, check the specs or compare the pics carefully if you can't try these out in person).

I have the Bosch pro GWS 7 (Screwfix has it for 65, but I paid just 48 from Toolstop) and it is awesome precisely because it has such an incredibly slim body - the slimmest body in its class (possibly the slimmest ever?).

Completely agree, this thing gets up to speed so quickly it jolts when you switch it on so really needs a good grip.

No.

You can cut a channel in plaster and brick to lay a new circuit.
You can chop off metal posts.
You can slice shapes in ceramic tiles too thick for small cutters.
You can grind down threaded bolts flush where you can't saw.
You can smooth off cast iron gutter pipe to put as a flue in your narrow boat.
Etc... Etc....

You get thin abrasive cutting discs , thick grinding discs and diamond impregnated metal cutting disc.

I used mine to cut some patio slabs. It certainly has its uses. Certainly fun watching the hot sparks fly.

Cracking tool for automotive and general use, mines lasted years, make sure the discs you buy are not out of date as can be dangerous. You do have to be very, very careful in general use as can do some serious damage if slipped or jolts and hits you, specially when working under a car in tight situations.

Yep, ALWAYS use eye protection and a heavy leather apron is not a bad idea.

In that case see if b and q sell it and if so get further ten percent ( or difference) off!

I used mine for grinding the edge of nuts off something to stop vandals taking them off, I then needed to remove nuts but couldn't so used it again with 1mm cutting disc and removed nuts. Very handy.

I have had "green" tools for years, I am a diyer who has fixed up houses and help family........ never had a branded power tool fail yet...........

No need for Blue for normal users......

IMHO

Is this tool suitable for cutting into an external wall for pointing lead flashing?

Partly, you'll need to buy a cutting guard as it looks like the tool is only configured as a normal grinder out of the box. For cutting or edge grinding you will need a cutting guard. However that said if you are using a masonry wheel made out of metal it's not really going to burst/fracture so I'd probably use a grinder guard in that instance but be extra careful. Also if the Bosch cutting guard is expensive then it may work with a cheaper third party cutting guard. They aren't that expensive. £3-4 for a third party one.

OOS - 2-3 weeks for delivery

Bought one, going to either use it or eBay it.

I need to cut some channels in some concrete to install some AKO drainage. Also the neighbours have had a new fence installed, and the bolts are sticking out...going to grind them shorter...

Worst case, I can sell it on unused or return.

I usually think 'get a life' when people offer safety advice on here, but in this case I agree. These things are lethal even in safe hands. I still can't make a fist with my left hand after going through the tendons in my wrist with a grinder.
