My angle grinder was stolen from my garage (it was a condo, shared space) along with some other tools. Now that I have my own garage, I had a chance to try out the Tacklife AGK31AC 6.3-amp angle grinder to see if it would make a worthy replacement.
Amps: 6.3 amps Rating: 120 volts AC No-load speed: 11,000 rpm Grinding wheel:4-1/2 inches(115mm) Cutoff wheel: 4-1/2 inches(115mm) Flap Disc: 4-1/2 inches(115mm) Wire cup brush: 3 inches(75mm) Spindle thread: 5/8-inch-11 Grinder Fiber Disc
1 * Tacklife AGK31AC Angle Grinder 1 * Cutting Wheel 1 * Grinding Wheel 1 * Flap Disc 2 * Extra Carbon Brushes 1 * Auxiliary handle 1 * Protect guard 1 * Spanner wrench for replacing 1 * User Manual 1 * Warranty Card
It was good to see that three 4-1/2 discs were included: a cutting wheel, grinding wheel and a flap disc.
In addition to a manual, a spare set of carbon brushes were included. I wasn’t expecting that at all.
The grinder comes out of the box like this, without the grip, disc or safety shield attached. Closeup of the label. There are two removable “cooling vents” (one on each side). If you’ve ever worked in a dusty workshop, this is a nice touch. There’s a push button lock on the top side (left photo) that makes installing the wheel easier, especially when tightening with the included spanner wrench (right).
The orange power switch is located on the left side of the handle (note if you’re a lefty).
I happen to be retrofitting my son’s summer camp go-kart with electric motors, so I thought I’d use the grinder to shorten a long bolt. No problems with the cutting wheel.
An angle grinder isn’t something I use all the time, so the Tacklife AGK31AC angle grinder is priced just right for me. Nothing fancy, and comes with everything you need to get started.
