DeWalt D28115 Review
Are you looking for a heavy-duty high-performance angle grinder? Do you need power and comfort at the same time?
If your answer is yes, then D28115 from DeWalt may be just the angle grinder you were looking all this while.
It packs a 13 Amp/2.3 HP special 9,000 RPM G55 (AC/DC) motor. It also comes with a tighter grip.
Before we get into the DeWalt D28115 review, let’s talk a little about the brand first.
About the Company
I have reviewed Dewalt products before too. DeWalt is an American Company who are a pioneer in manufacturing power tools and hand tools mainly for construction. They have been in business since 1924.
This makes them quite reliable and trustworthy.
Design and Features
This thing is a beast. As with all DeWalt products, it is firmly built and feels as strong as a rock. It comes with a special dust ejecting system.
It provides durability by ejecting damaging dust particles that enter the tool through the air intake vents.
It comes with a Dual abrasion protection which helps in increased motor protection from damaging dust and debris ingestion.
The motor is not an ordinary one. It has been designed for faster material removal and higher overload protection.
The D28115 comes with a two-position side handle. This is a life-saver. It helps to reduce the stress of vibrations on your body. The tool also comes with a jam-pot gear case with a proper alignment.
An auto-off function prevents the tool from excessive wear and tear. One-piece brush arm prevents brush hang-up due to dust ingestion.
It is equipped with a Quick Change Wheel Release tool which allows tool-free wheel removal.
The D28115 packs in a powerful 13 Amp Motor. This motor can rotate up to 9000 per minute. To make it high performance the motor is designed for faster material removal and higher overload protection.
This ensures that the motor works at the highest level. The special dust ejection system makes sure that your device remains clean as a whistle. I also loved the special tighter grip as it helps in getting a firm grip on the tool while working. It also helps in reducing the stress of vibration.
You can also work with the tool for hours together without any issues. Overall the D28115 helps in providing a nice balance between power and performance as well as providing you with comfort and convenience.
The trigger mechanism is far superior to the paddle style found on Hitachi and other brands. It is way more comfortable than most of the angle grinders that I have used in the past.
The lock provided is a life-saver mainly during long-haul jobs. You can easily use this for sculpting or wood cutting. You don’t get a grinder disk in the package. You have to buy them separately.
The D28115 has 4.5 star rating on Amazon. About 80% of the reviews on Amazon is 5 stars. This speaks a lot about the performance and popularity of the device.
A verified Amazon buyer says-
I am a professional remodeler. I use this tool to grind concrete, cut stucco and plaster, as well as any other grinder-related jobs.
I was dubious of the once-great and now so-so Dewalt brand name, but on the advice of another professional, I bought one when I burned up my Hitachi.
The power of this tool makes is as good or better than any I’ve owned or used. If you don’t need a lot of power from an angle grinder, this one may be more than you want.
As with all other DeWalt tools the D28115 comes with a 3 year limited warranty. In addition to this you can avail a 1 year free service from DeWalt.
If you are unsatisfied with DeWalt you can return the tool in 90 days and also claim a full refund. You avail a 4 year protection by paying an extra 20$.
The D28115 is a beast in the making. Not only does it give a high performance but it is very easy to use. You get through long work like a breeze. People have been happily using this device for more than 15 years. This ensures the longevity of the device.
It is also very quiet. The ability to lock it is a plus. You can work on metal and masonry with ease.
I have always loved using the D28115 dewalt angle grinder. I still wonder how DeWalt managed to put everything in such a small package. It is solid as a rock.
It is quite comforting to the hands, thanks to the tighter grip. The high-performance design means you can use it for long sessions without any issues or slow down. The only big issue is the low RPM (rotations per minute) in comparison to the competition.
For lighter work, you can check the Makita 9565c
