Eastwood 4 Inch Reversible Air Cut Off Tool is rated 4.4348 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Your Investment...! Finally...! A cut off wheel tool that has a reversable drive system. I don't know how many time I have put up being sprayed with hot grinding sparks simply because the cut off tool only ran in one direction... Now cutting thru a panel or even chopping a frame rail is so much easier than before... Plus, the added reach of this tool allows you to get up into difficult areas and cut rusted bolts and straps with ease... This tool will pay for itself many times over in just the time saved in aggravation and time wasted trying to get something cut free or removed. Buy this tool... It'll be you new favorite that you reach for from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I have been wanting this tool for quite some time but hating to spend the money. When Eastwood offered 25% off I bought it. I am very happy with this tool. It has good power and I love being able to reverse it if I need too. I like the length of the tool as it can get into tight places. The clamp that holds the guard on is made of I think a nylon type of plastic so you can rotate the guard easly by hand without any tools if you need to to control the direction of sparks somewhat and help get into a tight place. Great tool Eastwood.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last. I have had two of these and have been very happy with the usefulness of the tool. However, the first lasted just over 1 year (the warranty) and locked up, even though it was lubricated each use. The second will not reverse; the knob will not turn. It was very tight when I received it and now it won't turn at all. Again, just out of warranty. As I said in my previous review, "Great tool if it lasts." It did not. Not happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every shop/car builder/mechanic should have one. I get so tired of having just one direction on my regular grinding tool. It seems like they make it so it will rotate in the direction of your eyes. I love the option of the reversable. You can stay in one position while cutting and not have to move to go in the other direction. This is one tool everyone should have. It's about time someone came out with this tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Check return policy! Don’t know if the tool is any good yet as I had to return defective new in box tool. I received it and instantly saw the tread on the arbor was galled. I attempted to remove it with the enclosed tool and the push brake snapped without a lot of tension. Check return policy! I have been shut out talking with any quality person about my return. I have been told it may take up to a week to send replacement after receiving, yet the original came in 3 days. Yet to hear any good news from Eastwood on any satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited so long........ Like Chapel above, I have longed for this tool and bought it the first time I saw it listed. Would never want to do without it now. The long reach and reversible feature make it indispensible. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool The thing that sold me on this tool is the ability to reverse it. I have been talking to power tool reps for years about reversable grinders and they look at me like I'm nuts. I just tell them "you don't have a clue what that tool is used for . You have never done fabracation work or repair welding on equipment or trucks" Even if the tool did not reverse I would still call it a great addition to my tool box. A very handy tool! By it, use it, love it!!

About Eastwood 4 Inch Reversible Air Cut Off Tool

This pneumatic cut off tool is a must in any shop doing restoration projects or other metal fabrication. You'll use it for cutting patch panels, fabricating steel plate, removing damaged frame sections or simply cutting rusted bolts free. Finger-controlled knob offers "on the fly" speed adjustment that reduces wheel hop and prolongs cutting life by adjusting the speed to the type and thickness of material being cut.

One of the most important features is the reversible cutting direction. If you've ever used a grinder or cut-off tool where you could not control in which direction the sparks fly, you'll appreciate the ability here to reverse the cutting direction to send sparks away from you. No longer will you have to reposition your body and head at awkward angles to avoid spark contact—simply flip the switch and the sparks fly 180 degrees away from you, others or flammable objects.

Safety guard can rotate 45 degrees either direction. 15" long overall; weighs about 1.5 lbs. Utilizes 4" Metal Cut-Off Wheels with 5/8" center arbor hole.


4" extended reach cut off tool does not come with cut off wheels. We suggest purchasing the 4in Metal Cut-Off Wheel 1/16th. x 5/8 Arbor - 5pk. The #51680 utilizes 4"diameter wheels with 5/8" arbor hole and up to 1/8" thick.


Use for cutting patch panels, fabricating steel plate, removing damaged frame sections, or simply cutting rusted bolts free. Speed adjustment allows accurate and precise control during the start of the cut and eliminates "skipping" of the wheel. Finger-controlled knob offers "on the fly" speed adjustment that reduces wheel hop and prolongs cutting life by adjusting the speed to the type and thickness of the material.


(Q) What are this tool's specifications?
(A) Uses 10 cfm of air at 90 psi, and operates at a maximum of 8,000 rpm. Reversible wheel rotation allows you to control where the sparks fly. Safety guard can rotate 45 degrees in either direction to get into tight areas. Cuts approximately 1/4" above surface.


Do not use to cut fuel tanks, oil tanks or any object containing flammable liquid or gasses. Always were eye, head and hand protection when using this tool.
