Review Summary

So here's the story. I went to get my Dewalt 4 1/2 angle grinder repaired as the gears had finally given out, after many years of use. They wanted $50.00 to fix it, so when I saw these for $21.00, I thought I would give them a try (I bought two). That was ten years ago and these Chicago Electric grinders are still running fine, and I have put them through some heavy use.
If your still a doubter go to the Harbor Freight web site and read some of the 80 plus reviews that confirm my experience.
