Angle grinders are lightweight and easy to use. The design of angle grinders are typically the same, they have an adjustable guard and a extra side-handle for use with two hands. The power of the tool and the size of the disc vary from tool to tool, generally the more powerful the tool the bigger the disc. This means that high power angle grinders can be used for more heavy-duty application.
