I have one of these too, but I'd call it a mini grinder... Has the power to cut iron pipes, so is very handy for me... Only drawback is the blade depth, as once starts wearing down, it doesn't cut very deep through the pipe!

Can be a bit hungry on the batteries, but again is expected, and is ideal for short jobs.

6500 RPM seems very slow for this sort of machine. How does it perform compared to a normal one?

I only use mine for cutting iron pipes which it does with ease... A mains fed one would be better, but for the infrequent times I use it, its perfect.

There is less dust and less noise and you can take it anywhere with ease.

I have used it to remove burrs etc. But I have not tried cutting or grinding metal with it yet.

I'll have a go in the next few weeks and report back :wink:

Put a wood blade on that and you have a very handy saw.

The trigger broke on mine as did the impact driver one too so replaced it with a rocker type from maplin with a bit of adaptation and it has been fine since.

i am shure that will depend on wether the clamp was applied by a clamper in accordance to the road traffic act on a public highway where its coverd by the law
or a private clamper in a private area where its a civil matter :dunno:

Half the time the clamping is illegal anyway :sad:

Unless things have changed recently it's illegal to cut through the body of a clamp but legal to destroy the lock.

Used to be a guy that rode a big Pan European (Honda motorcycle) around London carrying everything he needed to remove clamps, he charged a lot less than paying the parasites to remove the clamp :wink:

You used to sometimes see them laying on the floor :lol: :lol:
