18V ONE+ HP Brushless 4-1/2" Angle Grinder/Cut-Off Tool
18V ONE+ HP Brushless 4-1/2" Angle Grinder/Cut-Off Tool is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ryobi 18V brushless angle grinder is disappointing Purchased it a couple weeks ago... I had high hopes for this tool based on the performance/value balance of some of my other Ryobi tools. Unfortunately, this tool stalls out easily and appears to be over current limited making it only useful for very light duty grinding and cutting. If they are trying to limit the performance... as to not take market share from the companies higher end tool line (Milwaukee) the have over done it in this case. Also, the overly complicated wheel/disc retention nut is a pain. The standard nuts are superior... simpler, lower profile, more secure and, and can also be used without tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool, but not for pro’s! This tool is fantastic, but still not quite at the pro level. It is absolutely one of the finest RYOBI tools that I have ever seen. The problem is that I found that this tool cuts out more easily than other brands (as if it becomes overloaded easily), it also overheats and cuts out, etc. A pro can’t have that happen. Additionally, I found it odd that there is a significant performance improvement with a larger amp-hour battery. The 2Ahr battery cuts out too easily. I’d recommend you use a 6Ahr, or larger. Also, if you are going to buy non-genuine batteries, be mindful that this has a two prong design. Matching up correctly will affect performance! For what it is worth: If you have a job with hours of continuous cutting, I wouldn’t use any battery-powered angle grinder on the market. That’s where a corded angle grinder still shines. With all that said, brushless motors immediately make this tool high end. These motors mean less maintenance, less heating up (despite what I said), and higher efficiency. The Lithium Ion batteries are high end, because they can withstand hundreds of charging cycles, they have high charge densities (lighter weight), and are more stable. The built-in electronics also help the tool perform and keep it protected. I love that this unit has 3 positions for the auxiliary handle. I like the rubberized grip too. The paddle switch is great for activation, while wearing beefy gloves. The tool-free wheel change out is absolutely a luxury. With that said, it also comes with a pin wrench, if your wheel gets stuck. The die cast body is an indication that this is built to last. The ergonomic shape is far superior to most DIY angle grinders. At 9,200 rpm, this actually exceeds the equivalent DEWALT tool, but I’m not sure the DEWALT would cut out. I used this angle grinder to cut some structural steel. It absolutely gets the job done. But, I’m not sure that this belongs in the field, under the harshest of applications.
