Found 17th May
a compact battery grinder complete with charger and 12v battery, 2Ah li-ion with 1 hour charging.
offer starts on 24 may instore at Lidl
uses standard 76mm discs, fast disc change system. 19,500 rpm no load speed.
3 year guarantee.
although not as powerful as 18v or 20v systems, it is alot more compact suitable for one hand operation.
choosing the right disc is often more important than overall power and should be more than adequate for all but the biggest jobs.

Any good for removing clamps?

Could be quite handy as car polisher maybe


No it won't, please don't try it, you could cause a lot of damage to your paint. You need a DA, or 'dual action' machine for this

are these good for polishing the car


Maybe. It's quite flexible. I'm using it right now to scratch my back. Then I'm going to to grab a chainsaw to trim my hair.

For polishing the car I'd recommend a hydraulic road breaker, perhaps.

60% of the time it works, every time.

What clamp? Didn’t see anything mate... *taps nose*

Is it powerful enough to cut slubs?


Slugs? Probably.

Slabs? Maybe. But with such small cutting disks you’ll never get through anything thicker than a floor tile and the battery probably wouldn’t last long enough to get through a slab anyway, so you’d be better off with a 9” mains grinder
I can barely work a screwdriver. But I'm buying this. Thanks HUKD.
12v? GRINDER? Seriously? What's this going to cut?

12v tickler more like...

Why would you want to sand your palms?

Too rough?
Try moisturiser.

*cough*
Regards damaging clamps, obviously the clamps been cut off and weighed in for scrap by some unscrupulous party unknown

Use that on your paintwork and the circular motion plus the rpm will generate enough heat to burn through or permanently haze your paintwork. Move it of axis at all and you will booking a paintshop.

A lot of people may not be aware that a 9” grinder is a lot different in behaviour. You get a lot of kickback with a larger grinder that can catch people unaware if they are not accustomed to it, increasing the likelihood of injury.

No, can only be used to grinding angles. Sorry.

true - but then please don't underestimate the liklihood of injury from this little tool either - that high speed blade will cut through anything you touch against it (no clothes etc will protect you). The disks also have the potential to shatter, there'll be a shower of red-hot sparks that could ignite anything flammable nearby and anything you cut will be liable to heating up quickly and burns could result.

Similarly if you have slabs to cut but you use a bolster and lump hammer - crush injuries and damage from flying debris can be severe, especially if you aren't experienced in their use.

Suggesting the right tool for the job (as a mains grinder is the correct way to cut slabs) isn't suggesting people work outside their capabilities, it's merely suggesting that they don't use the wrong tools and end up either disappointed or worse, hurt.
How many angle grinders is too many, is the question?

Ah; just remembered the justification I had - making a threaded rod cut-off tool :).
Though whether this will be man enough is another matter.

Annoying that it doesn't share batteries with their version of a Dremel, which I also have.


Oh and I'm sure the scrotes will have already stolen a much better angle grinder from a builders van etc!
Would this be any good for cleaning up a rusted car wing before painting?

Yep, if you want shiny bare metal this is just the thing for you.
is this what i would use to skim surface rust of a tin alloy garden shed ?

really need to get on it before it starts really eating holes in it and it was a right bugger to put up couple of years ago

cheers
With only 12v and 2A this would just about have enough grunt to polish your toe nails, and I expect you would need several batteries to do both feet... More unsuitable junk as per usual thanks to ChinaManMakesCrapInc

If you were buying this in the deluded hope it would cut through paving slabs (as someone else asked), or anything else remotely heavy duty, you'd obviously be disappointed. But, it's also a bit silly to expect this tool to replace a mains grinder! It would, however, be very handy for light duty work such as light rust removal and cutting. The compact size is a definite bonus when working in cramped conditions. I can think of several jobs that are too much for a Dremel, but too delicate for a big grinder and this would likely fill that gap nicely.

i think a wire brush followed by hammerite will probably be more appropriate for that - those tin sheds are very thin, this (or any grinder) will likely cause more harm than good and will go straight through!
Just got one today
