Bosch Professional GNF 35 CA

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

bosch professional gnf 35 ca concrete grooverVersatile and versatile, this Bosch Professional road chaser can be used on both concrete and stone. However, for professional use, it claims to offer an ideal weight-to-performance ratio to reduce muscle fatigue during prolonged use. Its desire to bring a dose of comfort does not stop there, since it also has grip zones optimized for an ergonomic grip. On the performance side, it is still equipped with a 1400W motor, which makes it particularly powerful. Thanks to the electronic regulation, its rotation speed is also constant and a sealing system provides protection against dust. (It is also compatible with the Click & Clean suction system.) Supplied without disk, the wheel change is simple and quick, and is done with a single tool!

My opinion : With this concrete groover, we really are a great team! Bosch Professional is always a trusted brand, and it’s still the case here with this very capable machine. Even if, for the price, we can regret that the accessories included in the box make the discs without exit, I clearly could not say that it makes it less attractive. It ensures it in absolutely all areas, whether in its operation (with easy adjustment, soft start and spindle lock, for example), its speed of rotation (which reaches 9300 rpm when empty) or its maneuverability. (it weighs less than 5 kg and its handles are quite comfortable). Whether for your construction site or your renovation work, it has everything you need!

Makita SG1251J

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

makita sg1251j concrete grooverWith its 1400 W, 10,000 rpm, this double-disc groover allows you to go fast in all grooves! Thanks to its electronic governor, it also offers a smooth start and a constant speed throughout the time of use. Adjustable with precision, it allows both to cut up to a depth of 30 mm with a width between the 2 adjustable discs between 6 and 30 mm. Equipped with an SJS system, you and the user are protected at the same time in the event of a disk blockage. To ensure optimum grip, the machine is limited to 4.5 kg and the rear handle has a Soft Grip coating. Delivered in a MAKPAC storage case, it finally connects easily to a vacuum cleaner to reduce the amount of dust generated by its operation.

My opinion : In the category of professional concrete groovers, this Makita is also one of the best! In addition to its good power, what makes its main attraction is that for this price, and unlike the Bosch Professional presented just before, the 2 diamond blades are included. Not to spoil anything, the settings are numerous, they adapt perfectly to what you intend to pass on the wall or on the floor (ducts, pipes, etc.) and it is quite significant. In terms of maneuverability, it is a fairly light machine and even if the adjustment of the handle could have been more practical, it is very comfortable to use. Solid with its aluminum casing, it is also a good choice if you are used to entrusting your work to tools of this brand.

DeWalt DCG200NT-XJ

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

dewalt dcg200nt-xj concrete point attack machineWith this concrete cutter, DeWalt has gone cordless: to operate, it has a 54V battery, enough to give you the power, range and performance you need to get the job done. . In addition, everything has been thought out to offer the best experience during use. Thanks to an electronic brake, the wheel stops, for example, quickly when the trigger is no longer pressed. Also in electronic systems, the clutch also limits the return movement in the event of the disc jamming in the concrete screed. For more comfort, the rubber finishes guarantee a better grip while the unlocking to access the blade is easy and without tools. For a perfectly functional motor, a mesh cover on the supply flap finally prevents dust from infiltrating it!

My opinion : If I wanted to present this DeWalt to you, it is because it is one of the few wireless routers with real professional capabilities. So yes, it is not as powerful as a wired one and above all a little less efficient than a Bosch Professional or a Makita, but its battery remains of excellent quality, it offers good autonomy and it drives well on site. the motor and the discs which then have no problem cutting the concrete. Its wheel on the side also makes it very easy to adjust the depth of cut, the handles are ergonomic enough to offer an optimal grip, it is a little heavier than others (over 7 kg) but that is not not too uncomfortable either. and has a connection for the suction system. Wireless, so it’s a good choice!

Closed WSM1009

Editor’s note: 3.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ferm wsm1009 wall chaser for concreteTo make grooves in walls and floors, this Ferm concrete groover provides its 1700 W motor, 4000 rpm and 2 fully adjustable diamond blades. Depending on the cables or pipes to be removed, it makes it possible to make slots 14, 19 or 29 mm wide, up to a depth of 28 mm. Thanks to the laser with which it is equipped, it can also guarantee precise work and very straight feeds. For more comfort during use, it is equipped with non-slip softgrip handles, a wide base for perfect stability and a suction connection to limit the volume of dust. As for its 3 m long power cable, it allows great freedom of movement. Finally, it is delivered in its storage and transport box.

My opinion : I would say this Ferm is great if you are planning to start some home renovations to get some ductwork out! If indeed drilling in plaster or brick is not a problem, in concrete or stone it is much slower, and with this small lack of power, it is therefore not at all suitable for professional use. . But for work at home it has other advantages: it is quite handy despite its weight, it offers different settings, both in width and in depth, and its laser is quite practical to direct. But above all, it comes at a much more affordable price than a professional machine!

Einhell TH-MA 1300

Editor’s note: 3.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

concrete mortiser einhell th-ma 1300This Einhell groover has a 1320 W motor and its double disc is capable of reaching a rotation of 9000 rpm. Continuously adjustable, its penetration depth varies from 8 to 30 mm, while the width of the grooves can vary from 8 to 26 mm. Weighing less than 5 kg, it is light and comfortable to hold, especially since an additional large handle offers a secure and reassuring grip, especially for beginners. For user safety, it also starts soft and has a spindle lock system. It is also equipped with a connection for use with a vacuum cleaner: the dust is collected directly for a cleaner construction site. Finally, it is delivered in its box to store it easily between two uses.

My opinion : With this Einhell, we are clearly on a cheap router! But for this price, you obviously have to make some compromises. If you were planning on cutting through a concrete slab or stone wall, it’s best to forget about it with the provided discs. Its effectiveness actually ceases with soft materials such as plate, brick or aerated concrete. However, this does not mean that this machine is not interesting since it will find its place perfectly if you start working at home and it is in this type of partition that you want to make slots. Especially since the work he provides is clean, of good quality and also easier to handle. If it is not made for heavy work, on the other hand it knows how to be of service and for this price, it is already very good!
