    Best grinder out there
    I have owned 2 Metabo grinders for the past 3 years. I use them in my granite business for cutting, polishing, and grinding on granite. I have tried Makita and Bosch, but they don't have the power to do the work. I would generally go through 2 Makita grinders a year. Now I buy one Metabo every 2 years. They are well worth the money. This is a very powerful grinder. I would advise only well skilled persons to use it. The only negative is repair work. Though Metabo offers the XXXL warranty, it has to be sent to them in order to be repaired. Other than that, its the greatest grinder out there. I am most likely going to purchase another very soon.

    This is a great grinder!
    Great grinder, but wish that Metabo would go ahead and include the anti-vibration handle as standard on this one. Almost all of the other Metabo grinders have that included but this one. No problem, but just had to order it as an extra as it really helps reduce the vibes after long uses.

    Sounds like a great grinder but can you tell me the decibel level on these grinders? I am looking for a very quiet level. What is your quietest grinder?
    Thank you very much.
    David on Dec 18, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Sorry.metabo does not rate their grinders with a decibel.
    I have been using the Metabo WE14-125 VS and it is a real gem, but tonight while grinding some concrete it suddenly stopped. I checked the power, and this was fine. I blew it out thoroughly with compressed air through the vents as per the manual. It still does not power up. Can you please advise?

    Metabo power tools have been carefully tested and inspected before shipment and are warranted to be free from any defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 12 months from user's original date of purchase for tools purchased after April 1, 2004. If repair is required, return complete tool, shipping prepaid, with proof of purchase and, if claiming extended warranty, XXL® confirmation to Metabo's nearest authorized service station. If inspection shows defective material or workmanship, Metabo will repair or replace (at Metabo's option) the tool without charge during the warranty period. This warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear. It does not cover any damages caused by careless or unsafe handling, alteration, accidents, misuse or repair attempted or made by personnel other than Metabo Corporation or its authorized service stations. This warranty also excludes chucks and accessories supplied by Metabo Corporation. This warranty applies in lieu of any other warranties, expressed or implied, and variations of its terms are not authorized.

    The foregoing obligation is Metabo's sole liability under this or any implied warranty, and under no circumstances shall Metabo be liable for any incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow limitations on how long implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

    This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights which vary from state to state.
