In 1914, the company began to focus on power tools, starting with a line of power lathes. At the forefront of technological advances for over 95 years, Porter-Cable has introduced such noteworthy products as the world’s first portable belt sander in 1926 and the first right-hand, helical-gear circular saw in 1929.

The company designs, manufactures and distributes electric and cordless power tools, pneumatic tools and compressors, pressure washers, generators and related accessories for the professional woodworking, commercial/residential construction, plumbing and electrical markets.
Porter-Cable set out to design a small angle grinder with sufficient power for grinding and cutting with the benefits of a smaller, lighter tool. After using the PC60TAG we can say they did a pretty good job. The PC60TAG combines light weight with great power. We used the PC60TAG on several different projects including grinding welds, grinding support brackets and cutting off pieces of aluminum angle and it performed really well. It was a real pleasure working with an angle grinder that’s about 1/3 the weight of larger 7″ and 9″ angle grinders.
The Porter-cable Angle Grinder PC60TAG is a nicely built, light weight and comfortable tool. Having a small angle grinder is great especially for remote jobs, small tasks and detail work. Overall, you will be more than satisfied with it’s performance, features and design. Porter-cable PC60TAG is great value for money and a quality tool which will last you for years.
