Brush grinders are used in different spheres of human life. With their help, you can remove old paintwork, quickly “age” the wood, sand and polish the base. Unlike grinders (angle grinders), brush models process a wider strip of surface in one pass. At the same time, the work is done faster, safer and better. The trading network offers consumers models of different prices and quality. In order to select the most suitable machine, it is important to determine the goals and objectives that the electrical appliance will have to solve. Our experts' advice will help you find a reliable assistant in the sea of household tools.
Engine power. All brush grinders are driven by an electric motor. The choice of power depends on the nature of the work.
- When processing wood, the best option would be a machine with an 800-900 W motor.
- To prepare the metal base (remove paint or rust), a more powerful unit is required. Grinding machines with a power of 1300-1700 W can cope with such tasks.
Spindle speed. Tool rotation speed depends on the type of work and material. It is best to choose a model with speed control.
- Experts advise to process wooden blanks at a speed of 1000 rpm.
- When working with steel structures, the speed rises to 3000-4000 rpm.
Disc (brush) diameter. A wide range of accessories is available for brush grinders. Brushes are made from different materials, they differ in the size of the abrasive, diameter, width and fit.
- Fitting size of the tooling is matched to the shaft diameter. Most often, the fit is 19 or 22 mm.
- The maximum brush diameter is matched to the shape and size of the workpiece. If the working surface has a large area, then it is more efficient to use equipment with a maximum disc diameter (up to 200 mm). It is more convenient to handle small items with brushes 60-100 mm in size.
Tool weight. The weight of the grinder does not only affect operator fatigue. Although this point should be considered when buying.
- Lightweight devices (2-3 kg) allow you to process the workpiece in any position. The work can be carried out by weight, vertically and horizontally.
- Heavier models (3.5-4.5 kg) are effective when working with horizontal parts. Due to their weight, they exert the necessary pressure on the surface, the operator can only direct the appliance.
Our review includes 5 of the best brush grinders. All these devices can be purchased in specialized stores in Russia. When distributing positions, the editorial board of the journal relied on the opinion of the expert community, taking into account the feedback from domestic consumers.
