Questions & Answers

From the reviews, has the concern with the power switch been resolved?

Asked by: WoodFab65
Not what the official word is on that. My switch worked fine, but I had issues with the gear train failing after not quite 4 years of occasional light use. Fun while it lasted. They want $40 for the replacement gear. I think I'd rather put that toward a DeWalt.

Milwaukee 11 Amp Corded 4-1/2 in. Angle Grinder with Paddle and Lock-on Switch is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 57.

After not quite 4 years of occasional monthly use it acts like it has a missing gear. I was excited about the Milwaukee brand and wanted to expand my collection, but after this I'll be trying DeWalt. Besides, it's time to move on to cordless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High performance grinder This grinder is much smoother, quieter, and operates much cooler than some of the lower end Milwaukee grinders. The "Soft start" feature works very well, saving you from the kick that powerful grinders traditionally have. My only complaint is the lock on feature, which is hard to manipulate with welding gloves on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kicks butt but won't kick out of your hand. I am giving this 5 stars for what it is. There really is nothing else to compare it to and if you do you are mistaken. Just make sure it will do what you "need" it to do. Not all angle grinders out there can do what these units can do. Some are specifically designed to only use certain types of accessories as they don't have beefy arbor bearings and some cannot handle a lot of downward pressure like when you are using wire brushes. For what this unit was DESIGNED to do it does it well. Like all things you cannot have your cake and eat it too. You have to sacrifice some things in order to gain others. I think this is actually a very well rounded angle grinder and I believe Home Depots choice to carry this unit made sense not only because more Home users buy from there but it's Milwaukee's kit that comes with a grinding wheel. A bargain for the home owner. I just bought one of these because my DeWalt and Skil were not up to the job. Originally I was going to get either the Maketa or the Bosch but after seeing the other features and the power of the motor I was sold on this unit. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a powerful angle grinder that won't KICK out of your hand when you start it and it will serve for multiple purposes making it a well rounded grinder. If you don't need the power then save some money and get the less expensive Maketa and you will be happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Tool, with Power!!! This Angle Grinder is an exceptional tool, able to work for hours without overheating. 11 Amp motor is a must for extended periods and hard cement. Used to grind down 6"x60"x1"d of concrete from house foundation to fit a linear drain. Went through two blades, but the tool kept working. Did get really warm at the blade end. The on/off switch is easy to operate and even locks in place without difficulty. The bag is a nice plus, keeps the tool and accessories/blades together. Great value for your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 4 1/2" angle grinder on the market I have two of these mini beasts. Milwaukee beats DeWalt, bar none. After I wore out my DeWalt, I decided to try Milwaukee. Yeah they are made in china, but their quality and craftsmanship is second to none. I have many Milwaukee power tools and in this day and age, they simply can't be beat. They can be abused and they keep on truck'n. if you want an angle grinder that is "king" in the "power" department, go with this Milwaukee. You won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful, fast and worth the money i bought this grinder on a whim, and it was well worth the money. i had to do extensive body work on my 1978 chevy blazer and it cut through every metal with ease. just wish my home depot would still stock norton abrasives because with all the power of this grinder it goes through cutting disks pretty fast, but it doesnt matter to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works well. I have use angle grinders before. The Milwaukee works well and will last a long time with me. Used it at work and it did the job as good or better than the other brand that the company owns. I would buy Milwaukee 6146-30, 4 1/2" angle grinder again. I like Milwaukee tools, to me they are well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should bought it when it all started After spending so many hours on trips to return and get a replacement grinders from other brands, I finally made my mind about it. Its like the old say, "You get what you pay for it" and it is true. I finally bought the Milwaukee 11 Amp 4-1/2 grinder. It is powerfull and it never gives it up, it just keeps on going. I am so glad I got it.
