This looks like the low end model 4 1/2" grinder with a mini belt sander slapped on the drive head? Am I wrong?

I don't know about the components and the construction, my problem is, I thought I was buying a good product with a good name brand, but something went wrong the tool is hard to use, and dangerous, because the side cover that keeps your fingers out of the drive wheel, keeps coming off, and so irritating that after a while I just Left it off, of course now I don't use sander anymore I replaced it with another brand.

Do you rent this type sander?

The similar $40 Wen model is a superior product. The Milwaukee is too heavy, must be operated with two hands because the power paddle is a dead man switch, and is single speed. The Wen can be used with one hand, has multiple speeds, is much lighter, and is only about 20% of the price of the Milwaukee.

Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
Works well, the attachment to the drive mechanism doesn't seem to get totally tight with the pinch bolt. Found out it's like a van de graff generator in sanding aluminum edges with the static electricity sparking every couple seconds.

A little bit of a handful in size compared to the air operated one I'm use to, but this one delivers typical Milwaukee quality. Trigger takes some getting use to and I need to use it more to determine if I like it or not.

It’s worked good with assmazing results on all my projects, I have had no problems. Ive worked industrial construction all my life, I just take my time, work within the safe boundaries of the design of the tool and keep reminding myself it’s not a 4 1/2", 8.5 Amp 11,000 rpm Side Grinder
