Decided to replace the carpet in the house with stained concrete slab. After pulling up the carpet edge battens, lots of nail divots that I had to fill, then grind level. Had a Makita 4.5" angle grinder, fitted this cup wheel to it, and it has performed for two days straight like a champ.
(Was so impressed I went ahead and bought a 7" Ridgid Grinder and 7" wheel to do the "big stuff" out in the middle of the floor. Review of those upcoming).

I used this to take thinset off of the floor after taking up our ceramic tile. I did wet the floor down but to be honest it still makes a mess for this but it did it quickly. I suggest doing a little research and remove the thinset another way or pay someone to take it off for you! I am sure this tool will work great on other things!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew629 Chews through old tile mortar!
I grew very tired of hand-chiseling away old tile thinset from the concrete slab in my bathroom after removing the tile. Tedious, tiring, boring. This diamond cup wheel chewed through it like it was nothing in short order. Totally worth the money. It requires very little downward pressure - you really just need to focus on keeping the grinder flat/level, and let the wheel do the work. Do pay attention to your progress though, because this will start chewing through the slab concrete after the thinset is gone.
Biggest downside is that it does create an ungodly amount of dust, so much so that I couldn't see the grinder in front of me after about 10-15 seconds of work. So, be smarter than me and at least wet down the floor before you start grinding - it will cut down on the airborne dust by about 90%.
As far as how long it lasts: All I can say is that it handled removing thinset from a small (8'x5') bathroom floor, and doesn't look like it wore down much at all, if any.

It isnt cheap but it does the job correctly and quickly. Very easy to use. Highly recomend getting a dust shroud or it will make the biggest mess you can imagine.

Product worked great at shaving down concrete. My only complaint would be since it's only a 4 inch it is hard to keep flat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimb0 Works great. Don't be a fool like me
I bought this and was using it with my milwaukee angle grinder. I was moderately impressed initially. It was grinding at a pretty slow rate, and making a HUGE mess - both when used wet and dry.
After hours of this I called it quits. A week or so later, I decided I was not happy with the results and needed to grind more. I purchased a dust collector attachment for my angle grinder online, and went back at it.
Wow, the difference that made was incredible. Not only is there very minimal dust escaping into the basement, it cuts atleast 10 times faster. This is the only way to do it.

I had to pull up pre-existing tile and reuse it in another location. This tool was perfect for removing the thin-set off the back of each tile so that it could be reused. I ground down 24 sq feet and the tool still looks new.
