5 In. Variable-Speed Angle Grinder with Paddle Switch and Dust Guard

The Bosch GWS13-50VSP-DG package features a 5 In. angle grinder and compatible dust guard, helping users move toward compliance with OSHA silica dust regulations. The GWS13-50VSP angle grinder delivers more power than previous-generation models with the same size tool – 13 amps and 11,500 RPM. The 18DC-5E Dust Guard provides effective dust collection, with a large, durable footplate for stability during use. The dust guard has a single-screw depth adjustment. The grinder provides a multi-grip paddle switch for user control and comfort and a lower variable-speed setting – 2,800 RPM – allowing the user to match speed to application. The grinder has a two-position Vibration Control side handle, restart protection and constant electronics. The kit is part of Bosch’s PRO+GUARD™ dust system, which is designed to help users move toward OSHA Silica Table 1 dust compliance.
