    Q:I am on my second one after the first one stops with very little pressure. You can hold the disc very lightly with two fingers and some type of load sensor stops it from working. Replacement does the same. Is this normal?

        Good and bad.
        The auto release of the chuck is awesome. One thing I'm not a super fan is the auto shut down for the load on tool but I understand it.

        Extremely Easy On The Hands
        I work on automobile wheels/rims. I fix all types of cosmetic damages on most types of rims/wheels of most cars. I was using air compressed tools and for 12 years, the vibration from my DA and my grinder has taken a toll on my hand. I developed trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome. Since I got this tool, it has made my job easier and more comfortable. I also use the 2438-22 / 2438-22X M12™ Variable Speed Polisher/Sander Kit but then it got stolen. Both tools are great and will definitely keep you from having carpal tunnel syndrome. They are easy to control with every single swipe with a grinder disk or by a sander disks.

        Not what I was hoping for.
        This tool annoyingly hits self protect mode far too often, utilizing a 3” abrasive cutoff wheel as well as 3” scotch brite pad, works ok for like 30 seconds then starts timing out or going into self protect mode, if you release trigger and start again it works for a bit then repeats, over and over like that, not loading it alot at all…works well with small carbide burrs and small roll type abrasives, but not 3” 3m grinding pads or scotch brite pads.

        Compact Pneumatic Replacement
        I recently purchased the Milwaukee 1/4 in. M12 FUEL Right Angle Die Grinder, and I have been thoroughly impressed with its performance. The power of this tool is unexpectedly outstanding. It can handle various tasks with ease, from removing old gasket material to prepping metal for welding, all without the need for firing up and dragging out the air compressor. I have very few tools left that I need an air compressor and with this tool, it's even less. It's versatile and can handle tasks like metal blending, thanks to the variable-speed control and responsive trigger, making it a breeze to use. The size of the M12 die grinder is perfect for getting into tight spaces. Don't let the small size fool you! Its compact design provides greater mobility (no hoses to drag around) and access. One of the standout features for me is the paddle trigger with pressure-sensing switch, which operates much like a pneumatic tool. It provides a seamless and intuitive user experience as I didn't really have to read the instructions to understand what it does and what it can do. I've used this die grinder for various tasks, from removing rust off rotors and wheel hubs to sharpening mower blades and removing gaskets. When paired with an M12 5.0ah high-output battery, it becomes unstoppable. I recommend the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/4 in. Right Angle Die Grinder. It's a reliable, versatile, and powerful tool that has significantly improved my workflow and efficiency. If you're in the market for a cordless die grinder, this one is definitely worth considering.

        Great, but buy more batteries
        Great tool, super handy, but goes through a ton of batteries if use hard. Definitely not a replacement for a pneumatic die grinder.
