Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and performance! I've put about 45 hours of grinding in 6 months. Grinder has plenty of power to handle most jobs and shows no sign of potential failures. Still performs as new after 45 hours of use and using 6 grinding wheels. Rotating head has made a few tasks easier to handle. There a more powerful grinders in the market but you can't beat the lifetime service agreement. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool Good balance of power vs weight. All users should know that any power tool that draws this much current will suffer premature failure if extension cords are not able to deliver the power needs. Voltage drop will cause over heating leading to early failure. It's in the instructions, but who reads these anyway. Can't beat the LSA December 21, 2013

No, the R10201 angle grinder does not have a variable speed feature to allow it to slow down for use in polishing and sanding applications.

Thank you
