How can I find out this angle grinder model/brand? The label has come off so I dont know the model. The grinder is not working and I believe it is the brushes, how can I know what brushes to buy if I dont know the brand or the model? I was able to read something I believe it is "Pa6 ge30"

Few thoughts...

I don't recognize it, so can't be directly helpful.

Pa6 is usually just a reference to the plastic; not sure about the ge30 part.

You might get lucky by pulling the existing brush/holder and going to a good repair place to see if they have something you can work with.

Have you checked the switch? Failure there would make this a write-off, even with a positive identification.

I'm not a fan of throwing stuff away, but realistically, grinders are a dime a dozen. You can get a name brand used one for about triple what a set of brushes would cost you. You can get a bargain bin (ie, will only work for a little while) one for about the same as a set of brushes.

  • Thank you, I will have to check the switch and try going to a repair shop. Yeah I didn't want to throw it away cause I am on a tight budget
