Ridgid Twist Handle 7" Angle Grinder

ridgid_7_angle_grinder.jpgHas anyone out there every used a 7" angle grinder? We have and it sucked. It was so heavy and so hard to control and move around that we ended up hanging the tool from the rafters with bungee cords to take some of the weight off our arms.

So we're happy to see that Rigid has just released a new 7" grinder with a twist handle. If the handle feature adds even a little more control to the picture, it's one for the positive column.

We didn't find any info on cost or availability, but it's likely to be on the shelves at Home Depot, right next to all of the other Ridgid tools.

Metabo developed this in 1997. The twister handle is on all our 7" and 9" large angle grinders as well as our 5" AND 6" intermediate angle grinders!
