Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Cordless Grinder Reviews & Sanders

When we do cordless grinder reviews we look for one thing: Power. This is unusual, because with other tools you need to get a larger picture of a tool’s capabilities. With cordless grinders, however, power is the dominating metric. Can it cut through metal efficiently? Is it a tool that can support grinding welds? The new DeWalt 60V FlexVolt angle grinder is near-unstoppable. The Metabo 9-inch cordless angle grinder is a beast that is unmatched anywhere in terms of cordless capabilities. For our cordless sander reviews, we cover everything from cordless random orbit sanders, to half sheet and detail models. We’ve found a lot of winners in this category. Festool ETS EC brushless sanders stand out as does the Makita 18V random orbit sander. Cordless Grinder Reviews for Pros For Pros we pay attention to dust collection, vibration reduction, and power. Yes, that goes above and beyond just measuring power, but those later two components come to nothing without the first.
