Summary: Ultimately, the amperage rating of the motor gives you a pretty good idea of how much work a power tool is going to do. Somehow Milwaukee motors seem to outperform at a given amperage. Still I decided to try this because there is nothing lacking in a DeWalt motor plus this grinder has an ejection system for debris in addition to epoxy coated windings. This grinder does really well for its stator size.
Summary: Thank you so much !! It is sooooo nice when everything meets your expectations!!! The product was delivered as expected..Thank you so much!!! The product will be used a lot. Thanks for the good price and all!!
Summary: I absolutely love these grinders! I run 6" flap discs on them blending welds in my fab shop hours a day, every day, and they come back for more every time! These grinders are so durable I've only been able to wear out 1 of the 4 I have for use in the shop. Each grinder outlasts several sets of brushes in their motors, and the easy access covers for the brushes makes it a quick 5 minute change when you need to.
Summary: This is a good DeWalt motor but don't look for 5- or 6-inch wheels, cups, or flap wheels at your local DeWalt service center as they'll have to order them for you. Lowes and HD don't carry these wheels, either. What was DeWalt thinking? Next time, I'll look a little harder before I leap for another DeWalt tool.
Summary: Big difference from the Dewalt and the also-rans! The power is something I'd been missing forever, shudda made the leap years ago. I've been fabricating for 39 years and I'm sure I've created a graveyard of dead grinders, had them just die in my hands, die a slow lingering death and also had 2 go up in flames, and by the way had a couple just bleed out till the gears seized.
Summary: I have used many makes and models over the years but the Dewalt d28065 is the best yet for its solid power even when really leaning on it, the trigger works great with no issues, the power cord is heavy duty and rubber not plastic like many cheaper models, and it fits the hand really well with minimal vibration. I bought my first Dewalt about 4 years ago and use it daily in my trade as a pipe welder and it is still going strong. This one gets a 5 star rating hands down!
