Einhell TC-AG 115 500w Angle Grinder Review
Here we review the Einhell TC-AG 115 500w corded angle grinder, that has a very healthy 96% buyer satisfaction rating. With a rating so high you may wonder why it is only third on the list but its 500w motor leaves is slightly behind the top 2 models.
The Einhell brand may not be as well know as other, more prominent manufacturers but they do make a comprehensive range of high quality tools.
Einhell TC-AG 115 500wSpecification in a Nutshell

This angle grinder comes without any blades or cutting discs so these will have to be purchased separately. Don't be disappointed when it arrives with no accessories and you cant start to use it straightaway.
It has a 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.
One other feature worth mentioning is that it has an additional handle that can be attached which makes it comfortable for left or right handed use and in fact is very handy for heavy work as you can use both hands with it.
How Buyers Rate the Einhell TC-AG 115 500w
As I mentioned in the introduction, this model came out number three on our list of the top 10 corded angle grinders. Buyers love how nicely balanced this grinder is and how easy it is to use.
It is not the most expensive of units that we have reviewed but it certainly is excellent value for money. You don't get many tools of this quality at a price point like this.
It comes with no accessories so make sure you buy these at the same time. The housing of the motor, has also been sealed which will prevent any dust from getting inside.
With an angle grinder, safety is very important and this model comes with a good disc guard and that is essential with this type of powerful tool.
It is hard to find anything negative to say about this angle grinder other than it is at the cheaper end of the market and it has a bit less power than the more expensive ones.
What Buyers Say About the TC-AG 115 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.
Very well balanced and light
Generally speaking buyers said this one felt very well balanced and they felt safe using it. It is easier to control than some of the more powerful units and users felt confident with it in action.
When a motor is continually over working, then they do tend to die out very quickly. This has a good quality 500 watt motor, and is also very well engineered.
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 Einhell model is no exception. This is a powerful tool so always exercise care when using it.
Low on Vibration
All users also said that this one did not vibrate a lot, compared to many other models, they had used before.
Our Conclusion on the Einhell TC-AG 115 500w Angle Grinder
Well it came out at number 3 on our list of top ten angle grinders. The buyer reviews confirm why that would be the case. You can see that the buyer ratings are off the chart so I would say that this could be the best value for money grinder on the market.
You don't always need to pay top price for a tool if its something that you are only going to use very occasionally. This grinder ticks all the boxes for me for the non professional and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
As it is our number three choice, the team here at Tool Advice would of course highly recommend this model to anyone, who wants to own a high quality grinder, that is built to last. If however this is not the one for you, then why not check out our top 10 list of angle grinders, by clicking here.
In our opinion, the only thing that may put some buyers off is the low price point. You might even be able to find this Angle Grinder even cheaper online but I wouldnt let that put you off. This is a perfectly good quality angle grinder.
