Bosch 1810PS 4-1/2-Inch Paddle Switch Grinder with Lock-On Switch
Grinders lack the glamour of routers, say, and compound miter saws, but when it's a grinder you need, we don't think there are too many better choices out there than this one. "You get what you pay for" is, we think, even more true in the world of tools than elsewhere, and this is definitely a case in point. We've never met a Bosch tool that lacked quality, precision engineering, ergonomics and power, and this grinder is no exception. Our favorite feature on this one is definitely the paddle switch, not just for comfort and convenience, but for the ultimate in safety and control. We're not big fans of the lock-on button, because it negates the safety feature of the paddle switch, but we know some of you wouldn't have it any other way.

As for user ease, it’s fabtastic. It weighs in just over 4 pounds, and the balance in hand is supreme. Up against other grinders in its class, the vibration is absolutely minimal, virtually eliminating that unpleasant arm-buzz. Another thing we like about this grinder is its ability to draw power from DC outlets, so if you’ll be grinding welds, this tool is a perfect choice.
The 4-1/2-inch wheel changes out fast, and the guard adjusts without tools. The whole tool says "quality," from the sealed switch to the ServiceMinder™ brushes that automatically shut down the tool when it’s time to change them, ensuring that this workhorse will be with you for a long, long time. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

I came across this photo - see the Link on the photo for the source - and could not resist showing it because of the lack of regard to safety it illustrates. That grinding wheel, presumably made of carborundum or such abrasive material, is spinning between her legs without any apparent guard to protect her from injury should her attention wander momentarily.

Whether you're working in a granite shop, smoothing floor pavement, erasing graffiti, removing weather-worn paint, or cleaning surfaces, the 1773AK is up to the task, thanks to its powerful 10-amp motor that delivers 11,000 RPM.

For added safety, automatic restart protection guards against restart after a power failure, and it ensures that the tool is never powered on unless you need it to be. And a lock-on/lock-off switch lets you tackle extended-use applications comfortably.

The diamond cup wheels' five-hole dust extraction design provides an optimal combination of allowable airflow and material removal that complements the rest of the 1773AK's dust removal features.

The 1773AK features a convenient dust extraction port and comes packaged with a vacuum adapter to help keep your work area clear, safe, and free of dust. This concrete grinder also boasts a specially designed head for surfacing applications, which combines with the Bosch diamond cup wheel to ensure clean, safe dust extraction that exceeds both UL and OSHA safety requirements.
The dust collection system also utilizes a replaceable brush ring to help you maintain dust-free working conditions over time.
Sealed Against Dust and Debris for a Long Life
With epoxy-coated field windings, a sealed switch, double-sealed ball bearings, and two lip-sealing rings to protect against dust contamination, the 1773AK is built to stand up to the toughest jobsite conditions.
For added convenience, the grinder's spindle lock allows for quick wheel changes on the job. And when preventive maintenance is required to keep your concrete surfacing grinder in top shape, the trademarked Service Minder light lets you know.

A slim, ergonomic barrel means you can grip the 1773AK comfortably and securely, even when you're removing mortar from a bathroom floor or working in another tight space. The grinder's wraparound auxiliary handle provides control from a variety of angles, and it offers multiple hand positions for decreased operator fatigue.
