    Think its a 9 or 10 and I have the 5" too .. cant fault them really
    No where near as much loading with a broach, as a drill

    I find the ol' 9" a bit of a handful these days, for prolonged use - makes my hands ache, so the 5", with the power it has, is just ideal

    I've had 10 years daily use out of those 5"-ers, before having to replace 'em . Ten hard years, a piece, on the shop floor, day in day out - they are just great tools.
    The two I have ATM should see me out I reckon
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Yeh, it's why I tend to favour the lil' 5 inch-ers these days - plenty of guts to get it off, but not such a handful and handle-able enough for one handed fettling when required

    It's got to be a biggish lump of grinding before I get a 9" out.
    Must replace my 7" - a good in between-er and a lot less strain on the wrists - last one died some time ago and just haven't gotten around to 'acquiring' a.n.other one Dewalt do a tidy 7" ......... at a price!!
