Extremely useful tool for numerous and varied projects
This tool provides the complement to the 4 1/2" Bosch angle grinder. I use it to fabricate one-off parts for my growing number of compressed earth block manufacturing machines where I have used it to shape metal parts that otherwise would have to be sent out to a machine shop. I find the power to be more than adequate to shape up to 3/8" mild steel plate as well as an excellent cut-off tool for tight fitting locations on my machines. I use it as a prep tool for welding and for joining steel parts and it provides all the flexibility I need for these applications. Battery use is average, but since I have upwards of 10 Bosch Li-Ion 18v batteries, I can use this tool until I give out, not the tool!

Great Tool, But Disappointed
This is a powerful, smooth running die grinder, with long battery life. It is bigger than most air powered die grinders, and this can hamper access in tight spaces. The description is not clear, so I was uncertain if the run switch required constant pressure, like a kill switch. But it is actually a combination slide/rocker switch, which easily locks on. Variable speed would be a nice feature, however it seems to nearly double the price.

I purchased a reconditioned tool, and am impressed with the quality. It looks and performs as well as brand new. There is a small "R" stamped on the tool, and a slight scratch on the battery charger. These are the only marks that indicate this is not a brand new tool. I have purchased another reconditioned tool from CPO and have been thoroughly satisfied with the performance and reliability. Do not hesitate to purchase a reconditioned tool from CPO.

There is one disappointment. The description says "Die grinder kit with carrying case". What actually arrived is the die grinder, quick charge battery charger (about 30 minutes for full charge), two 4 Ah batteries, a pair of collet wrenches, and a Bosch brand tool bag. I expected a hard plastic carrying case. The bag is heavy weight material, but the zipper gets stuck at the corner when opening the bag. Decided to buy the LBoxx 2 and foam insert, which brought the total price to more than a brand new tool, with the LBoxx 2 and insert included. Then my biggest disappointment came a few days after I ordered the LBoxx 2. I received an email flyer from CPO offering the same tool I just purchased, including the LBoxx 2 and the insert. All of this for less than $10 more than I paid for the tool and bag. This is about a $45 discount to the price I paid for the tool and LBoxx separately.

Overall, I am satisfied with the tool and its performance. I would not hesitate to buy a reconditioned tool from CPO. But I cannot give a five star rating because of the tool bag instead of the "carrying case". And I am truly disappointed that the "Kit" I thought I purchased, was offered just a few days after I purchased my equipment, at a significant cost saving.

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 60 days.
