This Grinder is a beast! I equipped it with the Dewalt 7 inch diamond grinding head, and Milwaukee dust collector (You MUST use a good dust collector & a very good Shop-Vac vacuum because the dust is carcinogenic, and a cloud of it will infiltrate everything in your garage and in your house, no matter if you use plastic sheets or not).
I needed to smooth down all the flaws I had left in my garage floor resurfacing job.
The surprise is that I resurfaced with Home Depot's Cement-All product (pricey, but very permanent) and that stuff is like marble to smooth out.
My Porter-Cable Belt Sander with a 36 grit belt barely touched it, and it ate four belts before I used the Milwaukee Grinder.
The Milwaukee Grinder ate that Cement-All for breakfast! It also leaves a nice "whirl" finish.
If you want glass-smooth, you'll have to rent a stand-up with a polishing wheel.
Caution, This model draws 15 Amps, so you need to use a relatively unloaded electrical circuit.

We use it in heavy-duty metal working and masonry (two and two). It's powerful, it runs smooth, it handles 9" Ø. Only caveat I see is for small spaces, but we whip out our 6147-30 mini-grinder for those cases.

I've used various 7" grinders before, and this is my favorite so far. The front handle can be positioned 3 ways for jobs at various angles. I've used this where clouds of dust were thrown up, and it doesn't seem to mind at all. It does not get overly hot, which is nice. It has all the power I need for concrete or metal grinding. I've also cut bricks/blocks with it.
The only wish I have is that Milwaukee made a dust collector cover specifically for this grinder. If they do, I haven't found it yet. It would be a great addition.
