What's your everyday grinder for cutting ? I have a bosch but the cord is driving me mad it's so rigid, not sure if it's getting more rigid as time goes on! I have a variable which has a lovely supple cord, so I bought the same model but none variable from PTT and that's got a normal cord on it.

I did think about changing the flex cable, not sure how straight forward that is. Might end up buying another variable Bosch instead. What's your cutting grinder @3_fall you must have similar issues with the cable !

I keep my grinders warm in bed with me at night Andy. :p Don’t get cold power leads then.
But if I was to find it an issue, I’d use my cordless metabo, which is brushless :D

It’s actually very easy Andy, two screws hold back cover on, and you have direct access to the power connection.

Day to day I use a cordless bl makita. I've a variable speed bosch which has a curved wheel on and my oldest grinder which gets used on thick stone, grinding down floors and general abuse is a green bosch! A £40 throwaway from b&q about 8 years ago!

90% of the time it’s the cordless Bosch.

Hilti corded for heavy work but more and more recently I’m preferring the versatility of my cordless Metabo which I’ve had for years. I have to say I don’t miss the restriction of the bloody cords and it’s surprising how well it performs against a corded grinder and it’s slim design is another big plus.

You looking at the flexvolt?

Honestly, you’ll be blown away with how good they are.

Brushless, it’ll be really good. Could be lighter than the flexvolt too.

I'm a Yorkshire man, and it's difficult to part with the money, that's why it's been on my watch list for months !

I don't like cordless grinders as I feel the weight is all wrong. Too much away from the business end.

Maybe it is a generation thing and all I have to do is get used to it but why would I need to when the corded ones are so well balanced?

The Metabo allows you to rotate the battery to any position to help meet your balance preferences but tbh after a short while the balance issue that you’re taking about (which I do understand) isn’t really there imo.
