Cordless angle grinders in use: The practical check
Whether you’re working with metal, stone or ceramic, with a handy cordless angle grinder from Einhell you can grind and cut even the hardest materials without any annoying power cords. In this blog post, we’ll present practical application options, give you tips on safe use and tell you what makes Einhell cordless tools so special.
Why do you need a cordless angle grinder?
Cordless angle grinders go by many names among DIY enthusiasts. Nevertheless, whether you call them a cut‐off machine, multigrinder, a side grinder or a disc grinder, these handy machines have one thing in common, you can use them to process hard materials quickly and effectively. These universal tools are particularly important for metalworking. Sparks literally fly here!
A powerful motor inside the angle grinder drives a rotating disc. It is used to cut or grind your material. The highlight of the devices: Due to the compact design and the rotating disc, they not only work efficiently, but also get into corners, burrs and angles. However, the angle grinder got its name for a completely different reason. The angle at which you place the tool against your workpiece determines the function of the angle grinder. The steeper the angle, the coarser and more intensive the grinding result, right up to cutting. More about this in a moment!
Battery-powered or corded, what is the difference?
Angle grinders are available in many different versions, from particularly compact cut‐off machines for handy use to large machines with enormously high power. Let us take a brief look at the differences:
Cordless angle grinders
No more tangled power cords: Battery‐powered angle grinders offer cordless freedom for all projects. The advantage of these models is clearly their ease of use. You do not have to worry about extension cords, nor do you have to worry about accidentally cutting the cord during use. In addition, modern cordless angle grinders can now keep up with corded devices.
Corded angle grinders
In contrast to models with a rechargeable battery, corded cut‐off machines often offer more power for even more demanding tasks. Especially for projects where strong materials, such as I‐beams, have to be cut, large corded machines are usually currently more popular.

These are the possibilities cordless angle grinders offer you
As already mentioned, cordless angle grinders are universal tools that make it easier for you to work with metals, iron and stone. Let's take a closer look at the individual functions:
Cutting with the cordless angle grinder
Let’s start with the most important function, cutting metal and other hard materials. The rotating cut‐off disc is ideal for effortlessly cutting and separating even stone, iron or aluminium. Depending on the model and disc circumference, a cutting depth of up to 1" x 1" can be achieved, so you can even shorten pipes, profiles or mouldings to the perfect size.
Roughing/grinding with the cordless angle grinder
Do you have ugly weld seams on your workpiece? Then the roughing function of the angle grinder is the perfect solution! Choose a roughing disc that matches your material and requirements and you can simply rough away the weld seams. Make sure that the angle of the tool when operating it on your workpiece is correct to achieve the desired result.
What you should pay attention to when using a cordless angle grinder
As with all work with powerful electric tools, proper preparation is also crucial when using a cordless angle grinder. Pay particular attention to:
- suitable protective clothing: When working with the angle grinder, it produces a lot of sparks. In addition, parts of the material that needs to be cut are often whirled through the air. This makes suitable protective clothing made of flame-retardant material and high-quality safety goggles all the more important.
- the right accessory: To achieve perfect results with your angle grinder, you should look for high-quality accessories from brand manufacturers that suit your application. The choice of grinding discs is particularly important. There are universal and special discs that you should choose depending on the application. Also important, thin cutting discs must never be used for roughing!
- the right battery: A cordless angle grinder is a very power-intensive device, you should therefore make sure that you select a battery with the appropriate power. We recommend batteries with 2.5 Ah or more.
Summary: Cordless angle grinders - countless application options
Cordless angle grinders are particularly popular in metalworking. Whether roughing/grinding or cutting, the range of functions of these handy devices is impressive. Therefore, if you often work on hard materials such as metals, iron or stone and do not want to be bothered with power cords, you should invest in a good cordless angle grinder and high‐quality cutting or roughing discs. This way you benefit from cordless freedom for all your projects. Become a real enabler now!
