Good Stuff
16 Mar 2012
By Snow

"Just finished mono blocking a front path and this grinder/cutter made the job so much easier. It cut through (ok half way through) concrete kerbs/blocks effortlessly with the supplied diamond wheel. Haven't tried the other supplied disks but I'm sure they will perform equally well.
Case is a bonus too, as it keeps everything neat and tidy.
Highly recommended !!!"

Did the job

"Good well built angle grinder although the on/off switch could do with a re-design. The supplied Diamond blade cut through pebble dash around opening for replacing a window, neatly and with no problem of jambing or kickback. Not had occasion to use the grinding discs yet."

Makita 115 grinder 240/110
22 Feb 2013

"Good small grinder for multiple tasks. THE ON OFF SWITCH IS A DISASTER AND NEEDS TO BE REDESIGNED FOR USE AND DURABILITY. The on off switch snaps off(plastic). This is the Achilles heel of an otherwise good tool."

Shame about the case

"I bought this grinder because it came with a case. Unfortunate the case is too small to properly accomodate the grinder and cable. To get the grinder in the case you have to bend the cable sharply at the end of the grinder and this will lead to early failure - hence the low reliability rating.
There is also very little room for the cable inside the case and this makes it difficult to close.
See attached photo."

"Have only used once but has solid feel about it, certainly more than my previous one made by a competitor. Especially like shaft lock to ease disk change. Only time will tell, but this is a well built product that promises to give good service."
