DEWALT DWE4517 7-Inch 8,500 Rpm 4 HP Angle Grinder
It was tough deciding between this grinder and the Bosch for first place since both have a 4 HP motor and run at 8,500 RPM. What made the difference though was the weight with the Bosch being almost a full pound lighter than this angle grinder from DeWalt. Like the Bosch, the motor armature and field windings are epoxy coated to protect against dust and abrasion along with an automatic shutdown feature for when the brushes are worn down to prevent motor damage. A brush window allows quick and easy brush changes, the guard is adjustable without a key and the side handle can be set in two different positions depending upon your needs.
