        Awesome Grinder
        The M18 Fuel Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4.5 inch to 5 inch Grinder with Paddle Switch from Milwaukee may be the best grinder I've ever had. The tool is very responsive once you get the hang of it. You have to have both handles depressed in order to operate it, so it's a two-handed operation at all times. And if you depress one of the switches before the tool stops it won't continue until it has. The handle and guard are easily repositioned without tools making it really easy and fast to deal with. The braking system is really neat. Immediately after you take your hands off of one of the switches the disc comes to a stop, unlike my other grinders that keep spinning for a while. It also has anti-kickback that immediately slams on the brakes if the grinder senses any kind of kickback motion. The tool isn't too heavy either so it's easy to handle, even with a large battery on it. The One-Key component is also pretty neat. You download the app and link it to your tool. On the app you can see where the tool is or was the last time it linked up, and you can lock the tool down so no one else can use it. Altogether, I'm super impressed by this grinder would absolutely buy another.

        Be more productive
        Well Balanced and Productive Tool, it takes everything you throw at it and then some. Granted it’s a battery loving tool if you don’t ease up on the pressure you are applying upon it let the tool do its job and you will see how much further the battery life will take you! I absolutely love using this grinder for it’s well Balanced and comfortable to use with the anti vibration handle makes a big difference when using it, very versatile and powerful the adjustable guard that you can make sparks fly away from you and debris from hitting your body. Light weight less fatigue wether you’re grinding sanding cutting whatever it is this tool can take it you forget that you are not plugged into a receptacle, works that well!

        The Milwaukee brand name is an innovator in great tools
        The MILWAUKEE M18 FUEL Cordless Dual-Trigger Braking Grinder (model #2986-20) has many new safety focused features. For starters, greater control through dual trigger activation (2 hands required), permanent side handle, and AutoStop kickback control. The permanent side handle provides 15 positions, improving control and accessibility. They have added Autostop kickback control to help prevent severe kickback. The Rapidstop braking feature helps it come to a stop quicker. A 4-mode variable speed delivers greater control in a variety of materials. Compatible with One-Key by Milwaukee allows it to be tracked through their One-Key app. The Powerstate brushless motor generates power for tough grinding and cutting applications. The M18 FUEL 4-1/2 in./5 in. Dual-Trigger Braking Grinder takes angle grinders to the next level.  Includes the grinder, spanner wrench and 2 guards.  The M18 Fuel battery and charger are compatible and interchangeable with other Milwaukee tools.  I always recommend Milwaukee Tools - they have been around since 1924 and always provide quality tools.

        Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18V Cordless Grinder
        I have been wanting a new cordless angle grinder for a long time. My current grinder is corded and when you stop grinding, the wheel spins for quite a while and makes it hard to put down the grinder till the disk stops spinning. The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18V Grinder model (2986-20) is an advanced grinder tool that has safety built into it. The grinder has Milwaukee's trademarked AUTOSTOP kickback control built-in. The grinder disk will stop spinning within a few seconds when you stop grinding. The grinder can use either use 5/8" and 7/8" spindle wheels that are 4.5" or 5" in diameter. The grinder takes two hands to operate, to start the tool, grasp and hold the two side handle triggers down with one hand and hold the tool by the main handle with the other hand, then push the lock-off button forward on the main handle and squeeze down on the main handle paddle switch. The grinding wheel will start spinning. To stop the tool, release the paddle switch or side handle triggers. Make sure the tool comes to a complete stop before laying down the tool. You can choose from 4 speeds by pressing the Mode button on the tool (Mode-1 3,500, Mode-2 5,000, Mode-3 6,500 and Mode-4 8,5000) RPM. The tool in compatible with the Milwaukee ONE-KEY app for locating, securing and managing your Milwaukee tools. The tool came with a spanner wrench for installing the wheels and a T27 guard and a T1 clip-on guard. Add a battery charger and some grinder wheels and the tool is ready to go!

        Awesome tool with lots of power!
        Awesome tool with lots of power. I used this torque wrench to install 1/2” concrete anchors for a foundation wall steel reinforcement system. This impact wrench effortlessly drove the anchors into the pilot holes in concrete.

          Smart grinder
          Start using it right away at work, I have 3A battery, so, I would say, need bigger battery. Grinding really good, it's stopped when disk is stuck and stopped when I leave leaver.
