Black & Decker 750w 115mm Angle Grinder-KG750
The Black & Decker high performance range is designed to meet the performance, durability and build quality needs of the more experienced DIY enthusiast. Sharing many features with the type of tools used by professionals, Black & Decker High Performance can be useful when it comes to the most demanding and advanced DIY tasks.
This High Performance Compact Angle Grinder from Black & Decker can be used for cutting metal pipes and bolts, railings, sheet metal and much more. Other applications include cleaning rust from metal work and removing excess weld and mortar raking between brickwork. Its compact size can be beneficial when working in confined spaces and the 750w motor provides balance between power, weight and size. It has a 3 position side handle and a lock-on switch for additional control and safety, a spindle lock for quick and easy disk changing and tool free safety guard adjustment.
Power and Durability
With a powerful 750 Watt motor the KG750 grinder can cope with demanding applications such as mortar raking between brickwork and heavy duty cutting of tiles and metalwork. Black & Decker engineers know what goes into making power tools and features such as the die cast aluminium main housing, hard wearing motor brushes and dust sealed switch are all designed to help improve durability. These features increase the life span of the tool by preventing dust ingress and dissipating heat away from the gear box and other key components.
The three position side handle means that a comfortable hand position can be maintained in all applications, vertical, horizontal, cutting or grinding. The tool free safety guard can be adjusted to expose the grinding or cutting disk in the appropriate area whilst ensuring the user is protected from sparks and other debris.
Main uses and applications
Most grinders are designed for various applications but these can broadly be split into two categories; cutting where the material is accurately re-sized for a particular purpose and grinding which involves removal of unwanted material including rust removal, finishing and cleaning of the work piece. For this reason the appropriate disk must be used depending on whether the task is cutting or grinding. The choice of disk also depends on the material type which is generally metal or masonry (for example railings and bolts or tiles and brickwork).
Using the right accessory
Grinding or cutting disks are easily selected and identified as they are usually labelled for the application and material they are intended for. During use, cutting and grinding discs slowly wear down and eventually need replacing. For this reason replacement disks are readily available from Black & Decker and other suppliers. They generally have a universal fitment providing the correct diameter has been selected. The KG750 is equipped with a spindle lock function operated by pressing a button on the gear housing to lock the mechanism in place. This allows the disc locking nut or ‘flange’ to be loosened and the disc replaced.
It is important to remember to wear the appropriate safety equipment at all times and ensure the guard is in place when using this type of power tool. The high speed rotation of the disc can produce sparks or other debris as well as sharp edges during and after use.

It's well built, easy to use, and easy to change the guard. Discs are quick to change over although you don't get any in the pack.
The cord is long - something which is often overlooked.
Overall the motor feels smooth and well balanced. It doesn't judder or shake due to the initial torque, which makes it feel that bit better quality. Well worth a look.
I tried it on 3 paving slabs (quite thin ones at that) and it worked quite well considering - its not really deep enough to cut through the entire slab but went through enough to allow me to snap them in two. It wasn't exactly a straight cut but it'll do!! (I should have borrowed a Stihl Saw in all fairness!). Be warned, when cutting this thing makes some noise so please do wear ear protection, likewise, ensure that the rest of your body is also adequately protected - goggles, heavy duty gloves, boots, trousers etc...... as things have a tendency to fly off from it as you are cutting, not to mention the dust - did I mention the dust? Oh my, there's dust alright!!!
I found it quite difficult to grip securely enough for my liking around the unit itself - its quite chunky and unless you have abnormally long fingers or hands the size of a wicket keepers glove, there's no way that you can take a firm grip. The handle helps of course but it left me with a feeling that should the thing jam whilst being used it would be sent flying out of my garden and into next doors. (either that or come and whack me in the face!)
This particular unit has an aluminium casing and high quality copper around the motor which apparently helps in both cooling and performance respectively.
On first impressions it looks and feels like decent quality. It is quite heavy but then it is a serious power tool that has a fair bit of power in it. The weight is however well balanced and that is pretty important when using something as dangerous as this. It feels comfortable in the hand and the side handle is well moulded to allow a good grip on the thing. Length of the cord at 3 meters is good too, allows for a bit of play and to work in a clear area.
The size of discs that this supports mean it isn't probably well designed for cutting paving slabs etc but it is ideal for pipe or metal work where you need to be a bit more detailed about things. I certainly found it dealt with pipe work and some metal sheet no bother at all. Very steady and good to work with. Changing discs was also very easy too.
Worth bearing in mind a couple of things. You will need goggles, gloves and a healthy dose of caution. If you don't feel comfortable with it, don't use it. You can cause some serious harm with this. That little lecture of the obvious aside, it is worth noting no gloves, goggles or anything are included. And certainly for my review version no discs were included either. So just worth noting you'll need some of these too.
All in all it looks and feels a quality tool and it does a good job. I would expect it to be a long lasting and useful piece of equipment.
OK, that out of my system, I can report that I did find and buy discs and that I did use the grinder for a wide variety of light DIY works around the house. It performed admirably and made many jobs a good deal easier than they otherwise would have been. At the price I feel it is a very useful addition to the average DIY person’s toolbox. It’s not something I would have thought of buying, but now that I have one I would be very sorry to part with it.
We found the angle grinder worked very well in creating a straight edge along our drive. It cut through the tarmac with ease. It also cut through metal railings quickly an easily. It is clearly a tough little piece of equipment which is powerful enough for most peoples needs.
On the down side the angle grinder spanner was a little uncomfortable to use and felt as though it might slip causing a scratch to your hand. Also, perhaps in the literature it might be useful to advise checking of the grinding wheel as after using it half of the grinding wheel had been worn away.
That said it is a great addition to our tool kit and I am sure will get a lot of use in the future.
