Wolf Angle Grinder 115mm 850W UK Review
Here we review the Wolf Angle Grinder 115mm 850W with Diamond Disc, that has a very high 94% buyer satisfaction rating.
This comes with a massive 850 watt motor which really is a bit more powerful than the standard units. Its is quite well priced though at around £21.
The Wolf brand will be very well known to all professionals as well as DIY enthusiasts. They make a comprehensive range of good quality tools. I think the first drill I ever owned was a Wolf model.
Wolf 850w Specification in a Nutshell
- Size 115 mm (4.5")
- Bore Diameter 22.23 mm
- Motor 850w Watts
- Single Speed
- 2 position side handle
- 14mm thread
- Includes diamond cutting blade
This angle grinder comes with one diamond cutting blade but no spares or grinding discs so these will have to be purchased separately. The single cutting blade will get you started but I would be inclined to order some spares at the same time.
There is nothing fancy or special about this grinder, there are no special features or interesting quirks. Its just a low cost, high powered unit that will do most jobs very well and is aimed at the DIY enthusiast.
How Buyers Rate the Wolf 850w
As I mentioned in the introduction, this model came out number five on our list of the top 10 corded angle grinders. Buyers loved this product and even believe that its great value for more, some even saying its the best angle grinder they have owned
It is one of the cheapest units that we have reviewed and it certainly is excellent value for money. If you aren't intending to use this tool every day or just want it for the occasional job then this angle grinder is ideal.
It comes with just one cutting blade so make sure you buy some spares 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. Also the switch can be locked in for long periods of use.
It is hard to find much negative to say about this angle grinder other than it is at the cheaper end of the market and it has a lot more power than some of the much more expensive models that are available.
What Buyers Say About the Wolf 850w 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.
Value for money
Without exception buyers said this angle grinder was a top quality piece of machinery and every single review is either 4 or 5 stars, there are no lower ratings at all. At around £20 I would say this is unheard of!
When a motor is continually over working, then they do tend to die out very quickly. This has a great 850 watt motor, so it rarely needs to work at full capacity to get a job done.
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 are still using the original disc that came with it months later.
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 Wolf 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.
Our Conclusion on the Wolf 850w Angle Grinder
Well it came out at number 5 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.
You don't always need to pay top price for a tool and all buyers are saying that this is not a lightweight piece of kit by any means. It feels sturdy to use and will take on most jobs
As it is our number five choice, the team here at Tool Advice would of course highly recommend this model to anyone, who wants to own a good grinder at a reasonable price, that is built to last.

In our opinion, the only thing that may put some buyers off is the lower price point but I can assure you that this is not a cheap and cheerful tool. This is a well made and properly engineered grinder from a reputable maker that could last you for years.
