It may look like just another angle grinder, and the motor spec certainly looks similar. But this tool’s designed with one purpose in mind: cutting through masonry in a nice straight line. Fitted with a 5″ segmented diamond blade, it’ll cut up to 1-1/4″ deep — perfect for trimming up concrete, brick, or tile.
Hook up an efficient vacuum to its dust collection port and Hitachi claims you’ll capture up to 95% of cutting dust, which often contains particularly nasty silica particulates. Besides that, you’re looking at a pretty standard set of features: a locking power switch, tool-less cover removal and blade replacement, a spindle lock, and a handle that removes and re-attaches to accommodate lefties.
Street pricing starts around $180.
