Zaffy: Powerful tool with 9 limitations - Be prepared to be nickled and dimed.

I purchased this Dewalt Angle Grinder to cut large stones for outdoor landscaping in a mountain environment. The size, heft, and horsepower of this tool is certainly up for the task. This is no lightweight tool and any user, particularly if you are going to have this tool in your hands for any length of time had better be up for the task. You will need a lot of arm strength. It weighs 14 pounds I particularly like the ability to rotate the trigger barrel to accommodate different cutting and grinding angles. Some reviewers mentioned the two prong plug as being out of character with this Pro-level tool but it does not affect performance IMO. Your hands should only come into contact with plastic surfaces during use so it is not an electrical hazard without having the third ground wire. My plug came slightly bent out of the box but a pair of pliers and a twist and all was okay again. The electrical cord is 7 and a half feet long and very large gage. No problems there. My issue is with Dewalt s marketing of this tool. As noted by other reviewers, this tool comes with two protection guards a 7 and a 9 , a soft mount disk, and a screw on handle grip. Anticipating the lack of accessories I ordered the Type 1 flange set D284932 - 10 . When I got the tool and the flange set I found out that you also need a two pronged spanner wrench from Dewalt to use the flange set 61820-01 - another 8 plus 7 S H . But the real issue for me was this tool is marketed as a 7 and 9 grinder. I purchased a Bosch 9 diamond wheel to cut my stone when I purchased this Dewalt grinder. When I tried to mount the diamond wheel on the tool using the 9 protection guard provided by Dewalt, it doesn t work. I went back and studied the Dewalt DWE4599N manual and sure enough you need a third type of wheel guard. This guard is a Type 1 guard D284931 - 53 . Yes 53 And this guard is only 7 . Dewalt does not make a 9 Type 1 wheel guard. So I have a brand new Bosch 9 diamond wheel for sale. There are at least two more accessories that you have to buy to be able to use this tool for other grinding wheels. I am disappointed with the lack of transparency by Dewalt when it comes to what we as users have to buy extra to actually use this tool. You may be better off looking at a Bosch 7 grinder given that this Dewalt has limited 9 uses. The basic tool is offered at 153, but with accessories you can easily end up at 231 or more.
