Can any machines be used without a guard?


Every machine, fitted with discs of a diameter higher than 55mm, have to be used with a guard.

There are two types of guard: one for cutting-off and one recommended for grinding. Choose the right guard. To see what type of guard needs to be used when cutting-off or grinding, please go to FAQ: When using an angle grinder, should I use a different guard when cutting-off than the one I use for grinding?

By using the wrong guard, or no guard at all, you are not protecting yourself from debris, especially in case of breakage, and you may be severely injured.

Only the machines, fitted with discs of a diameter equal or smaller than 55mm, can be used without a guard.
