PROTOOL Review: The Surface Grinder


If you have never heard of the PROTOOL brand, trust that you aren't alone. If you seek an industrial rated surface grinder made for the absolute professional, PROTOOL is king. However, I dare you to find a PROTOOL surface grinder for purchase in the United States. A full review of the PROTOOL surface grinder is below, but first I'll provide some background on PROTOOl for inquiring minds.

PROTOOL is primarily a cordless tool manufacturer offering a product range quite similar to Dewalt, Bosch, Ridgid, and Hitachi. The breadth of product range is a little higher in some spectrums including surface grinding and portable dust collection. In true European fashion, PROTOOL creates a unique and positive user experience by integrating different tools to work together. For example, the dust collection system works seamlessly across the whole product line. There aren't three vacuums to purchase for three different tools. Another significant advantage to PROTOOL over american products is power rating. A premium would need to be paid for a contractor needing industrial grade surface grinders, but PROTOOL provides great power in the general product offer.
