TURBO Shaft FAQs and Troubleshooting

The TURBO Shaft fits most 4″ (100mm) and 4 1/2″ (115mm) angle grinders. However, when choosing an angle grinder to suit the blade, you should look for the following features:

  • An auxiliary handle
  • The on/off switch positioned on the top or side
  • At least 550 Watts power
  • Should have a spindle thread of: M10 or M14 (AUS and UK ) |  M14 (Europe) | 5/8″ (North America)
