Can not use it
Why? Because it not only does not come with a Type 1 guard for cut-off wheels, but it seems nearly impossible to figure out how to buy the correct type 1 guard. It's not listed here in related products, where it belongs, but not listed in the accessory sect, or the parts section. At least not that I can ascertain, and I was a auto parts man for nearly thirty years.

I’ve had this grinder for about 3 years and it has done everything I asked it to. I absolutely put it to some extreme use (that you really shouldn’t do with a 7amp grinder and it took it like a champ. It finally died, but I honestly can say that it was not the fault of this grinder. I pushed it hard. Just upgraded to the 4214 with more Amps, but will likely buy another 4011 due to the weight and size.

Maybe ok for consumer grade, once a month use.
We started purchasing these for a weld shop, not as our primary grinders but something just for sanding discs. We use pneumatic and 9" grinders for all the heavy use. I work maintenance so I have repaired hundreds of grinders over the years. Within 2 days of these hitting the shop floor they have had issues with the armatures shorting out. I have several sitting on my bench that are worthless right now. It is a short on the commutator between different segments so this is caused by the winding on the armature having poor grade of insulation, degrading with the heat from use and then shorting out. Only resolution is to buy new armature, but the price is prohibitive, especially for one that is most likely the same quality.

Not much to say about this grinder other than it works well, made in the USA and at a good price. The one touch guard is a great feature. This little guy works well all day and it doesn't lack on power.

Great tool, accessories not so much.
I just purchased and really like the DWE402 angle grinder, but it does not come with a pin spanner wrench. It does come with a long legged 1/4" (or some godless communist metric size Allen type wrench. The wrench doesn't appear to fit anything on the tool I would need to be messing with. Kinda reeks of Title IX/EEO/AA incompetence forced on American companies these days.

this small grinder seems well balanced and easy to use. it has a slide switch is much easier to use i believe.

the spindle wrench needs on-grinder storage either in the handle like ryobi on in the tool body.

No Type 1 guard
Just bought this to cut some tile. Got home, and read instructions. Needs a different guard, so I have to go to a service center, and order one. So my tile job will wait, half done until I can cut the final pieces.

Great tool! But please include in the instructions that the hex wrench or Allan key is for changing discs! Could also be improved by making a slot on the tool for storing the hex wrench as well as a picture for men.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
