NOW THIS IS A BENCH GRINDER——- AAA+++
Very Heavy duty. runs wonderful and does not bog down under preasure.
Excellent bench grinder that is very well made. It will handle anything you throw at it and never get bogged down. And best of all it does it very quietly.
Installed 2-3 weeks ago and everything is as advertised. Using grinder in our shop by many technicians and no complaints.Heavy duty and quiet. Would recommend this product.
Assembly was a breeze, grinder works perfectly. Smooth and balanced operation.
Great product,Great price!!!
This grinder is quiet and very powerful. Just what I was looking for.
BEST bench grinder EVER!
Very pleased with this purchase. Easy assembly right out of the box. Plugged it in and started it up. Sharpened a couple of axes and a chisel and and there was the slightest bit of walking with the grinder just sitting on my workbench. When I assembled the stand and mounted the grinder there was no vibrations or walking. The only problem I had was with the shipping carrier (Estes Shipping). Evidently there was a problem with shipping, but when both I and Home Depot Customer Service tried to contact Estes, response was abysmal. I never could get them on the phone. But I am happy with the grinder and stand.
A honest 11 amp at 115 volt or 5.5 amp at 230 volt 1 HP motor (super strong). Cast iron wheel hubs/washers (truer running wheels). Cast iron wheel guards and tool rests. Single hookup to dust collection at center rear of grinder. I was debating between this grinder or Jet’s 577102, I’m glad I chose this one (578008), it’s well worth the little extra cost. The 577102 only has an 8 amp motor 115 volt only , (that equates to a little less than a honest 3/4 HP regardless of claimed HP). The 577102 also has stamped steel wheel hubs/washers. Any faults or weaknesses? If I had to nit-pick I would would point to the OSHA approved switch, it feels like a weak link in a otherwise bullet-proof grinder, it feels flimsy softer plastic. That said if any problems develop it would be easy enough to change. On a side note one of the capacitors in the base was out of it’s retaining strap and loose, slid it back in with a piece of plastic to take up the slack for a firm grip. I used Baldor 10″ and 12″ 3 phase grinders/buffers in a railroad air brake shop for years, for me this grinder by JET blurs the lines in quality and power.
Great grinder has lots of power, this is what a bench grinder should be.
Seems heavy duty and well built. When mine showed up, one of the feet was spilt in half. After a phone call, they had a new one on the way. Plenty of power and it’s quiet. I swapped out the fine grit for a wire wheel, just wish they would sell it that way.
Easy to assemble and powerful. This replaced an older grinder of another brand with similar specs and the Jet seems much more powerful. Only used for about a month so far but it has lived up to and exceeded my expectations.
Met all our expectations.
Perfect for my metal working garage.
really nice piece of equipment, just what I was looking for. it is a lot of grinder for not much money.
