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.

If you’ve ever worked in a dusty workshop, this is a nice touch. tacklife anglegrinder 09There’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.
