    Bosch 6 amp small grinder

    Its on sale real cheap this weekend and I am considering purchasing to throw in the van.

    Probably be used for small type of jobs e.g.:cutting off rusted bolt, bearings. Small grinding etc.

    Question: Will 6 amp be enough for small work such as this?

    Be nice to also hear from those who own a grinder in this sizing.

    Also opinions on Bosch.

    Thanks in advance

    I have one and use it quite a bit, hasn't died on me yet and can't beat the price. Had a couple crappy tire (mastercraft) before and they didn't last to the abuse

    Thanks guys for the input.
    Just picked it up and so far feels good with the Bosch solid build to it.
    Took a piece of steel in the vise and ground away. No problem. You guys are right, for a inexpensive tool, I think it will be just fine for small grinding, cutting jobs.

    Thanks again guys
