I use this grinder for my welding and it works great. Virtually all things about it are good: Weight-able to use one hand as needed for tight spots, just be careful. Auto balance-good for off balanced disc's. Overall design is good. Just one drawback in my opinion: You need to push the side black button first, THEN the trigger to crank it up. I thought it was the trigger lock at first, but it wasn't. Plus I didn't see it in the description before I purchased it. It may take a while to get used to it unless you have something like that already. I'm used to it now and its actually good for safety purposes.
