Great tools
8 Mar 2013
By TJWhitehouse

"Couldn’t believe the price – I was going to by the 9” on its own and notice the pack offer with the 4.5” as well….. for cheaper!
Both cutters have already paid for themselves on the first job I have done. I have been cutting stone stabs with them; marking with the 4.5” and doing the tough stuff with the 9”.
Both cutters are a good weight and easy to use. I have not scored highly for reliability as I believe the test of tools is how long they last….
But I’m well happy with them at the moment!

"I swear by Hitachi and that has not changed one bit since owning these!
Just watch the price though, they seem to be on offer quite a bit and is worth getting them then."

Good for the price

"Bought these for some house renovation work. The 9" is fantastic and cuts through concrete blocks, bricks and anything else like butter(providing you have the right disk) however the smaller one has burnt out within a month of light use- only used with a soft wire brush for cleaning bricks."

great grinder

""An excellent tool at a reasonable price.
I love Hitachi tools. They are generally reliable, hard working but quite cheap compared to some other makes.
This is a light but versatile grinder which has enough power to make short work of cutting & grinding.

Burnt out in 5 weeks
20 Aug 2013
By MrScotsman
, Edinburgh
"bought this as a 2 pack set Our large grinder burnt out in 5 weeks, it did not cope with heavy work at all, replaced it with a makita grinder and that did better. the small grinder is still working well enough. I wouldn't buy the set again though."
