Over at Amazon, this Hitachi 4-1/2″ angle grinder kit, with 5 abrasive wheels and a carrying case, is currently on sale for $30.
If I were looking for a new angle grinder, I can’t say that Hitachi would be at the top of my mind, but I also can’t argue with the low price of this kit. It’s rare to see a pro-brand of angle grinder sell for this little.

It’s unclear as to whether this is a limited time deal of some kind.

There are many more options at the $50+ price level. But if $30 is your limit, this grinder’s probably going to be better than most if not all of the other models that are typically priced this low. Personally, I prefer paddle switches over lock-on slide switches, but I know that there are many who prefer this style better.
Update: The price was $29 (11/19), then it was out of stock, then back to $40, and now down to $30 (11/21).
