Best decision
This grinder is definitely worth the money. If i had to make the choice all over again i would because it has lots of power and it feels very good in my hands not awkward feeling like others.

Great upgrade from my old faithful grinder!!
Milwaukee's FUEL grinder with paddle switch is a great upgrade from my non-brushless grinder that I have used for more than 5 years. This grinder generates 11 amps of corded power and makes up to 135 cuts per charge, of course depending on what size battery you use. The brushless motor 8500 RPM and makes quick work of cutting and material removing applications. This grinder includes an electronic clutch to help protect against kick back and overload protection to help ensure longevity of the motor. Included is a wrench to replace the blades and a clip on guard to protect against sparks flying. Compared to my non-brushless Milwaukee grinder, this one is slightly bigger and heavier. My old grinder has not failed me for more than 5 years so I never saw a need to buy the upgraded FUEL version, but now that I did, I retired my old grinder. I do like the increase in size which has given me greater control of the tool while working and I feel like it is more well balanced then the older version. A couple of changes Milwaukee made to the grinder that I am not a big fan of is the clip on guard, I just don't like the design, and the handle on the new version can only be screwed into the left or right of the grinder. The previous version also had a slot to screw the handle into the top of the grinder. I rarely used the handle on the top of the grinder but still using it on the top once is enough for me to want to have that option. In terms of performance obviously this beats the non-brushless version and this tool performs every application I have used it for. Great tool!!

    money saver
    redoing garage floors and looked to rent a stand up sander. I decided to buy this grinder instead of renting to save money and own tool. Grinder with diamond plated wheel did one heck of a job. Took old epoxy off with ease. Used a rigid vacuum attachment and exceeded my expectations. Thank God I had l Iots of batteries because it will go through them. When stripping paint off garage floor make sure you have the high output batteries for longer performance. Milwaukee 5.0 worked just fine when needed.

      Not study
      "O" rings are broken at the first use. I have two new 5.0 Ah, but it lasts less than 30 min with concrete blade.

      Battery is better
      This is the first battery powered grinder I've used. It's awesome! Power is very smooth compared to all of my corded ones. It's quieter, I can push it hard and it lasts long enough for normal jobs and tasks. Best of all, I don't need an outlet or extension cord and I don't need to unplug the chop saw or light or charger every time I need to grind! I haven't tried it with any production type work, like constantly running it for hours at a time, but it's perfect for what I do.
