Great Little Grinder
3 Apr 2014
By Batnik
, Beds/Cambs border
"Brought this along with Erbauer diamond tipped discs (2 for £10) to aid the removal of a Salt Glazed collar, at floor level, in a corner, between 2 joists at 200mm centres, in order to install a new suite in a cloakroom revamp. Not a task I was looking forward to.
What a Great little Grinder. It took some time because the position of the cut meant I could only remove small sections at a time, which obviously increased the work time & load but it managed it with ease. Couldn't have managed without it.
Can't give a 'Reliability' rating as it's a very recent purchase and only used the once, but a great addition to the tool kit.

"Bought this as my old uber cheap grinder burned out as it couldn't be used for long periods. No such problems with this one, kept checking but no signs of overheating.
Great value for money and pokey too ,good getting a spare metal cutting disc in the box. Very happy with my purchase."

4.5 Inch Grinder
4 Mar 2014
By Juzza
, St Austell
"I had a cheapo grinder before and cutting through some concrete killed it. I needed a replacement quickly but didn't want to spend the earth so got one of these based on the reviews. For what it is it is great, has an extra guard included too. It did exactly what I needed it to and did it with ease. I would recommend this to anyone.
It doesn't fit in the carry case with the disc attached but it's very quick and easy to take it off and you can fix the disc inside the case too."

"I love Titan !
Lighter than I thought it would be, and also easier to change the disc (was worried it would be fiddly)
Excellent value at this price - big fan of this brand."

Great tool - very handy
21 Jun 2013
By djpe
, Suffolk
"Bought to replace an old Power Devil similar angle grinder.
This tool is quite light, more powerful and I was pleased to find it comes with a much safer guard for cutting, as well as a general guard for grinding - easily changeable.
Although it came with a disk, I also bought an Erbauer diamond cutting disk for fine cutting work.
As a 41/2" grinder I find it very useful for working with thinner slabs and making finer adjustments. The larger grinders are great but typically quite heavy and not so easy to manoeuvre around.
Motor appears to cope well with sensible usage and perfors well - I only started using it so long term reliability unknown (hence 4 stars) although I have no reason to doubt it !
The only negatives I would mention (otherwise features would get 5 stars from me) :
> A nice carry case - but - you can't keep the grinder ready for use with the guard in position and fit in the case (unlike my previous grinder) - and it's a tight fit to get the mains flex in anyway.
> The grinder aux handle only has 2 positions left or right, my previous grinder also had a central position which was useful sometimes

"The last grinder went up in flames, but this is in a different league. I bought it when it was on offer, which made it even better value. It is solid, easy to change blades, and plenty of power for the 4 1/2" disc.. I would recommend - even at full price."

Brilliant Angle Grinder
16 Oct 2012
By Madness
, Gosport
"Brilliant tool, everything you need including a carry case! Was impressed to see a spare disc guard a wider one for when you need to use a wider disc like for grinding out cement joints.
Don't need a screwdriver to change or move the guard either as its held in place with a clip.
Recommended!

Titan TTB281GRD 4½" Angle Grin

By SeanieKC
, Nottingham
"Great piece of kit for the price. Never used a Titan product before, but will do in the future. Used this for a variety of different tasks on a recent job. Tile cutting, metal cutting and mortar raking. Performed well in all cases with no lack of power. Comfortable to handle too. Only downside is the blade needs to be removed to store it in the case, but thats minor. Buy it - great versatile tool for the collection."

THAT DARN SWITCH
4 Dec 2012
By JJMACKAY
, ASHINGTON NE63
"I cant fault the grinder in any way.
Other that darn switch my thumbs are sore trying to push it on...
I like the inter changable guards for grinding and cutting.
The cable could be a bit longer.
The carrying box is somewhere lost in the shed.
All in all Its ok for the price.
ITS JUST THAT DARN SWITCH.
Or is it me?

"this is a great little grinder,suprisingly powerful with no vibration.my 1st one lasted a couple of months with little usuage and then the on / off switch wouldn't work so returned it and it was exchanged.
second one has developed same fault after same amount of time. i am more than capable of stripping it down to find fault but do not want to invalidate warrantee,has the manufacturer been informed of this switch problem ?

"Compared to the Bosh it replaced I find the gearbox a bit bulkier.Also the switch is difficult to operate. I wish I had spent a bit more money and bought another Bosh.So a average tool with a better switch I would give it another star."

"Good, compact and powerful, but let down by on/off switch. It gets clogged with grinding dust and is very hard to move. Storage box would be more useful if fewer projections inside. It's hard to fit back in with a wheel on and the cable has to be tied-up very tightly to close the lid."
