All this talk of £60 per meter chain etc

But at the end of the day wont an 18v cordless angle grinder just go through any metal chain in less than 30 seconds with the appropriate cutting disc regardless of cost per meter ???

There is no way anyone can get the same leverage inside a vehicle than when something is being pushed down on from above onto the ground.

Maybe you are some sort of contortionist as well?????

To be honest though what DOES worry me about any of these things is what happens if someone come along with a rechargable angle grinder???

I am really suprised that there are very few cordless angle grinders about - you can pick everything else up cheap as hell - bought a mains 4.5" one from Makro other day for £4.50 - with all the cordless tools on offer why no angle grinders???

Thanks God though - nothing would be safe - maybe the manufacturers have a gentleman's agreement not to produce them - will only be a matter of time though!!!

Only saving grace is the shower of sparks they make - pretty obvious at night!!!

You can’t really get the grunt out of the batteries that you would need for a useful grinder
