I had a Dewalt. Junk, IMO. Didn't even last a year.

I've got a Bosch now. Seems to be holding up well, so far.

jammin, get yourself another makita. i've got a 4 1/2" makita that i've used for 13 years without a hitch. i liked it so much that i bought a makita 7" when my milwaukee gave out and the 7" will wear your **** smooth out before you can bog it down.

I have a 4" Makita grinder that I have had since I was 15 yrs old. I'm 26 now, you do the math!!!! The cord is taped up, case is beat all to heck and the restart button on the back has to be held in all of the time, and I've had the motor too hot to hold more than a few times, but it is still going strong!!

Makita here too Jammin. Also, had a 10mm (3/8) Makita drill that was **** good. Had it stolen from me twice! But I didn't get it back the second time.
