Bosch 1974-8 7-Inch Large Angle Grinder
I had a hard time making the decision to switch from Bosch’s 9 angle grinder to this model but what sold me on this model is the high speed performance. The 4 HP motor in this grinder is running at 8500 RPM, a full 2000 RPM faster than the 9 unit meaning it’s taking material off faster and getting your work done quicker; quite a selling point.
The guard system has quick keyless adjustment and for maximum motor protection, the motor windings are epoxy coated so dust can’t get in them. There are also service minder brushes which stop the grinder from working when they’re worn, preventing potential motor damage. Removable brush covers make changing out brushes a snap and the trigger is designed to help prevent accidental startups, a welcome safety feature.
