4" Drive Wheel versus 7" Drive Wheel (Pros and Cons)

4" considerations: 

  • Pro: Lower Cost

  • Con: Lower belt speed (3800 feet per minute) does not remove metal as quickly

  • Pro: lower belt speed prevents burning while working with wood and allows for small wheel usage on single speed grinders

  • Note: We recommend this size for single speed grinders

7" considerations:

  • Pro: higher belt speed (6600 feet per minute) removes metal faster and more efficiently

  • Con: Must be slowed down with a variable speed drive in order to prevent damage to bearings on wheels under 1.5" diameter in a small wheel holder

  • Con: Higher Cost

  • Note: We recommend this size for Variable Speed Grinders
