Dewalt 6-Inch Bench Grinder Review (DW756)

Dewalt 6-Inch Bench Grinder Review (DW756)

If you’ve been looking for one of the very best bench grinder utility machines on the planet – a machine more than capable of commercial output but small enough for any residential or hobby application – then you need look no further than this amazing product from Dewalt.

Leading the construction industry for years and years with some of the very best tools and technologies ever created, this is the kind of 6-inch bench grinder (model DW756) that you’ve been looking for. Painted up in traditional Dewalt yellow with dual grinding wheels, we are going to break down the key components of this amazing piece of machinery right now.

Motor size

When you’re looking for a bench grinder, the motor is absolutely everything. It’s the workhorse that drives all of the bench grinding wheels and accessories, and allows you to leverage all of the utility that this piece of machinery has to offer.

As far as 6-inch bench grinders are concerned, you’re not going to find a more powerful motor than the one offered in this Dewalt tool. With a 5/8 hp induction motor designed and developed from the ground up to produce amazing performance at high rpms (we’re talking about rpms that reach almost 3500 with variable options), this is the kind of workhorse that you’ve always dreamt of – all without ever threatening to break your budget.

Wheel size

This DeWalt DW756 bench grinder offers dual 6-inch grinding wheels driven by that same 5/8 hp induction motor, all that guaranteeing that you’ll be able to tackle any project you can imagine. Included is 12 ½ inches of distance (not variable difference, which is important to mention) between each of the wheels, allowing you to grind longer and larger projects without any interference whatsoever.

At the same time, there are aluminum tool rests that you’ll also be able to take full advantage of just the need for each of the grind wheels – acting as that focal point you need to anchor the work as you machine it.


As far as special features are concerned, you’re not going to find this DeWalt product to be too terribly overloaded with special, really “out there” features – it is a DeWalt after all. Super easy to clean and maintain – and jampacked with extra accessories and features that you can purchase separately to turn this into a workhorse in your garage or workshop, there’s absolutely no reason whatsoever to sleep on this amazing product.

This grinder comes with DeWalt’s signature 3-year limited warranty  and one-year free service contract. The free service contract covers replacement of any part due to normal wear and tear and the 3-year limited warranty covers manufacturer defect.


Grinders that are capable of this exact same performance regularly run $200 or more – but you should be able to invest in this amazing DeWalt solution at a smaller cost, if you take the time to search for the best deal. You’re just not going to find this kind of power and performance with a price tag this affordable anywhere else.

This is the kind of workmanlike piece you’ve been searching for, the kind of workmanlike piece of equipment that can provide you with reliability, durability, and long lasting use you simply will not find anywhere else. When it comes to a 6-inch bench grinder, this is one of the best you can purchase. For that reason we give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you are looking to step up to a larger grinder, check out DeWalt’s 8-inch bench grinder!
