This angle grinder comes without any blades or cutting discs so these will have to be purchased separately. So don't be disappointed when it arrives with no accessories, though it does come with a very sturdy carry case. It's very handy if you have had your mig welder on the go and and need to do a bit of tidying up.
It has a soft start and lock on safety switch which helps to cut down on user fatigue. So if you need to use this grinder for extended periods, you flick this switch and it will keep on grinding, without you having to hold the switch on. I found this feature really useful compared to some of the cheaper makes but you have to be extra careful when it is locked on.
One other feature worth mentioning is that it has a type of dust extraction system that clears most of the dust that passes over the motor.

What Buyers Say About the Dewalt DWE4206k Model
Buyers bought this to use on a whole range of tasks. These included:
- Mortar raking
- Cutting Wood & Metal
- Sanding and Smoothing Metal and Welds
I have listed below a summary of the key features that buyers mentioned and appreciated.
Quality, quality, quality
Without exception buyers said this angle grinder was a top quality piece of machinery and not one person mentioned the high price, except to say that they thought it was well worth the money.
When a motor is continually over working, then they do tend to die out very quickly. This has a massive 1010 watt motor, so it rarely needs to over exert itself. Buyers also loved that it had a long 4m lead which was really handy.
That means it can be used regularly, and will be able to handle all of the smaller jobs and almost all of the larger jobs. Some buyers boast that they have run it for over an hour without any sign of heating up at all.
Quick and Simple Disc Changing
Buyers loved the quick change spindle so that changing discs on the grinder or making adjustments is extremely easy and fast. We all hate fiddly mechanisms that take time to adjust and keep us back from the job in hand so this is a very user friendly feature.
Angle grinders are dangerous tools, and exceptionally dangerous in the wrong hands. This Dewalt model is no exception. This is a powerful tool so always exercise care when using it as many buyers commented on the extra power compared to their last grinder.
Low on Vibration
All users also said that this one did not vibrate a lot, compared to many other models, they had used before.
