Choosing Your Angle Grinder
The most important factors in choosing the right angle grinder you need to know:
   1. What is the size of the job?
   2. What is the type and/or density of the material to be ground?
   3. How often are you going to use the tool?

Disc size and power of the motor will increase as the object on which you’re working gets bigger. It might also be a good idea to have a larger angle grinder if you use it more often.

An angle grinder can also be called a side grinder or disc grinder.

The use of an angle grinder versus a drill: It’s not advisable to perform any sideways actions with a drill. Drills are not built like angle grinders to take sideways pressure. The force exercised in using a drill runs directly down the drill bit into the drill itself. An angle grinder has bearings to take pressure at an angle.

Key Purpose of Angle Grinders and Vertical Grinders
The purpose of a grinder is to grind or cut an object into shape or fit, or to polish it in order to finish it off, depending on the attachment.
Angle grinders serve this purpose on a range of objects small to large, that lie between those for die grinders and vertical grinders. The heaviest jobs, requiring the use of both hands on grips and work on fixed objects and installations are best matched with vertical grinders.
