    The HF 4.5 at ~$17 on sale is a smokin deal. Surprisingly, it takes a lickin and keeps on tickin' If I ever burn one up, I'll buy a new one during the next sale. (They come with extra brushes, so it may be awhile.)

    First post here.......
    I didn't read all the input but I will toss in my grinders.....
    1)Dewalt 4 1/2" 10 amp (got it for $59 @ Lowes)
    2)Black and Decker 4 1/2" 5.5 amps ($30 WalyWorld special)
    3)HF special 7 " 13 Amps (on sale $30)
    I love all of them .......the dewalt and HF are fairly new....the B&D I have had for 6yrs I have tried my best to kill it......not gonna happen.....I have ran it so long I had to put it down and take my leather glove off to let the glove cool down........the HF paid for it's self the 2nd day I had it.....guy asked if I had a torch....why I asked....he has some iron pipe poles he needed rid of......tossed a 7 1/4" abrasive wheel on it....cut the pipe down he gave me $20 and the pipe.....the dewalt I use flap disk on her.....I tried to bogg it down once it laughed at me.
