This Metabo HPT 4-1/2″ angle grinder is on sale right not for $29. If you were looking to buy a basic grinder, you’re not going to find a better tool for anywhere close to this price.
The same model, G12SR4, has been on sale for Black Friday before – I last posted about a similar mid-November deal back in 2018. Looking at online price trackers, this grinder’s last recent sale price was $39. Going back further, it was last available at $29 for a very short time in mid-2020.
The grinder looks to have decent reviews and a solid reputation. While this is a basic no-frills model, Metabo HPT is a big name, and they stand behind it, which means a lot. The same cannot be said about the cheap no-name grinders you can find online. It doesn’t even look like you can get a comparable angle grinder-shaped tool from Harbor Freight at this pricing.

If you’re looking for something a little different:
Bosch 6A Angle Grinder – $49
The Bosch 1375A 6A angle grinder is down to $49 right now (from $59). It has been lower in the past, but there’s no indication it’ll be further discounted from its current “special buy” pricing.
Bosch 7.5A Angle Grinder – $49
Or, this Bosch GWS8-45 7.5A angle grinder is also priced at $49 right now. This looks to be a better buy for the same money as the 6A Bosch. (Thank you Vards!)
