Have used this grinder in heavy fabrication grinding of steel plates, beams, and angles. Hands down, best in its class. It will outlast any other grinder on the market and for the price you can't beat it. I would recommend it without a question.
My team does heavy duty surface prep in the field. We have been using DeWalt and Rigid 7" grinders in the field to remove corrosion and mineral deposits from metal surfaces. These lesser priced units would overheat from the load and amount of time in use, and sometimes they sieze up and die. This Metabo was recommended and I purchased from CPO (excellent buying experience). However, when we got it in and took it out of the box, my guys quickly realized that it was going to be too heavy for them to use for long periods. So...I had to return it. We'll just have to live with using lighter, lower cost, lower duty cycle tools and replacing them as needed. I'm writing this so that other people considering this think about it's weight as they make their decisions.
