Best Tool Bag That Will Hold An Angle Grinder
Thanks for taking the time to check out our article on the best tool bag that is suitable for holding an angle grinder. As you may know there are any number of tool bags on the UK market.
However sometimes we just want a bag that will hold a particular tool, and in this case that happens to be an angle grinder. So let's have a look and see which tool bag is the most suitable.
Typical Sizes and Weights of Angle Grinders
The tool bag that you buy will need to take account of two main things in order to be able to hold your angle grinder:
- The size of the grinder
- The weight of the grinder
In other words the bag needs to be big enough and strong enough to carry the weight without falling apart.
We looked at 5 of the best selling angle grinders and made a note of their size and weight. You can see those in the table below.
5 Typical Angle Grinder Sizes and Weight
Bosch PWS 700-115 Angle Grinder
41.8 x 12.2 x 14.8
Meterk Angle Grinder
31 x 13 x 11 cm
Makita GA4530RKD Angle Grinder
42 x 14 x 14.5
Terratek Angle Grinder
30.4 x 13.2 x 12
DeWALT DWE4206K-GB Angle Grinder
43.5 x 15 x 15
You can see from the above that the average size for a typical angle grinder is between 30-44 cm at the longest part. Any tool bag that is longer than that will do the job. In terms of width and depth 20 x 20 cm will hold any grinder.
The typical weight is anything between 2- 4 kg. Now we would recommend adding on another kilogram to hold things like a few spare discs and a wrench or two.
So ideally you want a tool bag that will hold around 5 kg of weight without breaking. You will also want a bag that measures around 50 x 20 x 20 cm.
What Other Features Should You Look For in Your Tool Bag?
We would recommend a hard base for your tool bag. Many tool nags are designed to be light, and they are tough enough for holding some basic general tools. They are not ideal for holding heavier tools, or for any type of tool with an edge on it.
You want a hard base and even better if that base is also waterproof
Strong Handles/Shoulder Strap
We would recommend a bag with two handles as it is more comfortable to carry. Padded handles make that even easier. Likewise there may be times when you would rather sling the bag over your shoulder.
A shoulder strap that is padded and can be adjusted to suit your height is also a very good idea. That means you can just sling the bag over your shoulder and carry it that way if you prefer.
When it comes to referencing tool bags you may hear the term "wide mouth" being used. That simply means the bag will open wide and give you easy access to your tools.
When it comes to an angle grinder, then you just want to be able to quickly reach in and pull the grinder out.
