Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dustin1101 Impressed and very happy with my purchase.
I've been working on fixing my garage floor for weeks. It had large areas of bad pitting and some holes 2+ inches deep and 5 inches across. After getting holes and cracks filled I resurfaced much of the area with quikrete concrete resurfacer, but found this impossible to get down in a smooth layer, or feather the edges to less than a 1/8" lip. I rented a 10 inch concrete grinding machine from HD to smooth it out... The machine did ok but was very hard to control and see what was going on where you were grinding due to the slurry. I got about 2/3 done and the grinding disc was completely shot! I was astonished that I could do that in probably only 2-2.5 hours of actual use. 24hr rental was a waste. I didn't want to rent it again or pay for another disc as I imagine they would require.. So I gave this 4 inch wheel a go just to smooth out some trowel high spots and feather the edges of what was left. I prioritized what I was going to do because I figured this would wear out quickly. To my amazement, I'm nearly done smoothing out everything I could possibly want to and the disc is maybe 20-30% worn. This cuts down high trowel lines quickly, just be careful because it's easy to catch an edge and tilt the disc which will cut a groove quickly. Circular motions work well most places. Very light if any pressure. It can take some work and practice feathering your grind into the surrounding area smoothly. My floor is particularly tricky because it is an old suspended slab and has quite a bit of dishing going on.
Anyway, this wheel has surpassed my expectations and I can't wait to see my floor completed with a nice coat of epoxy. The only downsides of this wheel are keeping it flat... and the huge clouds of dust you will make. You may want a dust shroud depending on your application, and you definitely want a good mask!

I tried this grinding wheel for the first time. I'm very impressed by the durability and speed at which it cuts. I used for about three hours to level some stucco and there is at least 1/2 the grinding pad thickness left.

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 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.

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.
