Default Dewalt D28065 grinder

Has anyone purchased or used this grinder? Is it worth $140. Is it any better/heavier duty than the 10amp grinders?

I use one at work to cut rebar. It's got a lot of balls for it's size, lots or torque. 3 year warranty, can't really go wrong.

I'm thinking it may be a fairly new model or something.

Someone came by my shop and figured they needed my tools more than I did so they took my grinders, sanders, compound mitre saw, magnum drills etc. Now I'm in the market to replace what was taken. I found a coupon from dewalt for buy one get one free of selected dewalt grinders and I wanted to try the trigger grip. I have 2 on the way as of this AM. I'll report back when they arrive.

Bummer ffrank, sorry to hear about that. Even if you're reimbursed by insurance that just leaves such a nasty feeling.

Bummer for sure........
Feeling "Violated" and "Pissed"would be my feelings in the matter.
Sorry for your loss.

I didn't totally get wiped out, just about $1,000 worth. Luckily they didn't get any welders, plasma etc.

I didn't turn it in to the insurance company. I figured that the deductable would be more than $1000. When I had hail damage on my roof I had to pay 1% of the insured value as the deductable. Anyone know if thats the typical deductable for items stolen?

Might be Jay, or they will calculate depreciation on tools. But I would still call & ask. I have gotten partial reimbursemnt on tools a couple of times years ago. Doesn't cost much to be sure?

Did you have any of the tools scheduled? If so, I don't think they apply a deductable or depreciate them. If I were you I'd at least find out if you have any insurance money available. Your agent should be able to tell you pretty easily. Sorry about the loss and the HASSLE to get back where you were. It's a pain to have to go out and replace stuff. Yep, I've been there.
