De Walt 5" angle grinder

I've had this little sucker for awhile, but I absolutely love it, so I figured I'd post anyway. I've had it for a couple years now, and it works just as well as it did new. I've tossed it around, dropped it, heated it up by cutting thick metal for extended periods of time, and loaned it out to friends who don't generally baby tools. I can't seem to kill it. the only beef I have with it is that the switch likes to shut off if you don't hold it on sometimes, but other than that, couldn't be happier. Same goes for other DeWalt tools I've used at work.
They're a little more pricey than most other tools, but if you plan on getting a lot of hard use out of a power tool, I'd recomend shelling out the extra cash. Pays for itself in the end.

I have a DeWalt model #401. Excellent tool. ;D
We have a Dewalt 4-1/2 inch right angle grinder here at work that has taken some major abuse. It is still going, but we have the same problem with the switch. I never did like the switch, even before we had to hold it on to keep it running. I added a similar Milwaukee to the shop's toolbox, and I am very impressed with it. It is more powerful, has a longer, very flexible cord, and a wonderful paddle switch. The only thing I don't like about the Milwaukee is the special wrench you need to change the wheels.
