Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by This is lightweight and powerful, but could be improved This angle grinder is powerful and easy to use especially with its slim grip. It has minimal vibrations to the user during long periods of use. The only problem I have with this grinder is the 2 prong electrical cord will not stay in any wall outlets I put it in. The only way I am able to use this tool is to plug it into an extension cord and tie the extension cord and tools cord together with a knot or electrical tape. This needs to be improved, I am dissatisfied with this product for this reason. December 11, 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't Last Long Worked great for a little over a year. Was satisfied until the rear bearing came apart, heated up and melted the plastic housing. Usage was intermittent. No where near what the useful life should have been. Brushes were hardly worn. Very disappointed in the life span. Also the motor vents blow hot air on the hand holding the device. April 25, 2014

Answer: 
At this time, the RIDGID wood working power tool division is not offering or marketing any optional angle grinder accessories like buffing pads or buffing discs, and there is not a specific brand of that type of accessory on the market to advise of as being compatible with the RIDGID R1005 angle grinder.

Can this tool be used with a masonry (stone, tile, granite) cutoff wheel to trim a 1/4 in. thick stone backsplash? If so, what is the recommended cutoff wheel?

Answer: 
No, the R86040B is a metal grinder , and is designed for use in the grinding of metal. Use on masonry (stone, tile, granite) could damage the tool, as well as voiding its warranty.
