Details

With user safety in mind, the new Skil 9296-RT 7.5 Amp 4-1/2 in. Paddle Switch Angle Grinder features a non-locking paddle switch that automatically turns off when released or dropped. With other traditional grinders, the power switch is located on the top of the tool, but on the 9296-01, the power switch is found on the bottom of the tool right where you hold on to it. This way, the tool is powered when you're ready to use it and automatically turns off when released or dropped.
Additional features include a 3-position vibration reducing handle that allows you to comfortably hold the tool without excessive vibration, a durable 8 ft. rubber cord that provides better maneuverability, an on-tool wrench storage that keeps the blade wrench conveniently tucked into the handle and a tool-less guard adjustment which allows quick and easy grinder wheel replacement. All these features and more are built into the compact but powerful Skil 9296-RT 7.5 amp grinder. Its light weight reduces user fatigue while cutting various bars, rods or bolts, cleaning metal and sharpening blades or even cutting mortar.
Features:
  • Powerful 7.5 amp motor delivers optimal performance for even the toughest applications
  • Paddle switch with no lock-on automatically turns off when released or dropped
  • Heavy-duty metal gear housing offers added durability and extended service life
  • Three position anti-vibration auxiliary handle minimizes user fatigue while improving control
  • Tool-less guard adjustment makes it easy to quickly adjust for increased versatility
Includes:
  • 7.5 Amp 4-1/2 in. Paddle Switch Angle Grinder - 9296-01
  • Metal Grinding Wheel
  • Anti-Vibe Side-Assist Handle
  • Spanner Wrench

Works Great! Easy on the wallet!
Has plenty of power and runs smooth. Not quite as streamlined as my favorite angle grinder (Dewalt) but then again, I now own more red grinders than yellow now. They are a great value and I now have a grinder for every type of task I use these for (Grinding, cutting, wire wheel, and several flap sanders). I do not have to stop and switch wheels. Performance is on par with the yellow brand but ergonomics are slightly (very slight) not quite as comfortable. I still give these 5 stars as my complaints are very minor. Originally bought 2 and have since ordered more.

Shopping CPO leaves me with "NO WORRIES"
I mainly use this item as a grinder or I will put a wire wheel on it for stripping paint or cleaning different surfaces.

Great grinder, easy to use
I love this grinder. My old Makita died and when I got this one, I found it's a lot easier to use because of the paddle switch which I can activate with my heavy gloves on. No more using my other hand to switch it on or off.

Great Grinder
I love this grinder because I can run it one handed. The paddle switch is so handy. I don't have to use my other hand to turn it on or off. It speeds up deburring and sharpening as I can use my other hand to hold or move the part for whatever I am doing to it.

You get what you pay for
I have used most side and paddle switch grinders. This is ok for the money but I will take my makita hands down over this, for the price and if used for a short time fine it it OK at best the vibration is not acceptable

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.
