Comments about Bosch Tools Bosch 5" Variable-Speed Angle Grinder:
After 18 years of only Bosch grinders, we are done with them. These have issues working on some generators and we have burnt out 4 out of 5 purchased in the last 1.5 years
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this Grinder
from Atlanta, GA, United States
I recently bought this grinder. I have many high quality power tools and was impressed with the built quality of Bosch. I had to cut several 1 inch wide steel rods that supported the light fixture boxes in an old house. I wasn't, sure my Fein Oscillating tool would cut them easily. I am upgrading the fixture boxes to support large ceiling fans. The grinder worked extremely well cutting through the steel rods like butter. I was very comfortable with the size allowing me to work in a confined space in the attic..I love the soft start up and the variable speed. I always like to use a speed appropriate for the task at hand.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Toronto, ON, Canada
Need to have a big man's hand to hold it well, which is good for me, but when u swich on, the sound really harsh, and the power button... Anyway i like it after all.

from New York, United States
Bought this grinder based on past good history with Bosch tools and the need for a variable speed grinder. When adjusted to the lowest speed setting, the grinder will kick into its highest speed. While this can be avoided by not setting the speed to the lowest setting, it can be annoying and should not occur. My main concern is the sound of the grinder. The grinder gearing sounds a little harsh, like the gears are dry, unlike my constant speed grinder. Hopefully, this will not be an issue, and I will get good service life out of this grinder.
from Bridgeport, CT, United States
I purchased this for automotive/metal work. It comes in very handy in small/tight areas. The variable speed is what got my attention (especially when dealing with thin sheet metal). The bad part to this tool is availability of 5" accessories for it. I had to travel over an hour to find 5" accessories, I've since used 4&4.5" accessories.
On-Off switch hard to move
from Medellin, Colombia
The grinder is strong and less noise than average grinders, however the on-off switch is difficult to move to the on position. I have used other grinders and that is not the case, that is why I gave it only four stars. I understand it is not a quality issue, but a safety feature to avoid inadvertent turn ons.
