        As good as it gets
        The Milwaukee M18 Fuel grinder is my go-to when working in my shop. It has the power and durability for grinding, cutting and use with a wire wheel. This is my second M18 Fuel Grinder and I use both when working on projects in my shop. They are solidly made and dependable.

        Love it!
        I’ve been removing loose paint using this grinder with a Avanti Pro quick strip disc.. This tool gets the job done quick. It’s a pro tool for sure. Extremely happy with my purchase!

          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.

            Stand out
            The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18 Volt Brushless Cordless 4 1/2 - 5 in Angle Grinder with paddle switch was a great upgrade from my non-FUEL Milwaukee 4 1/2 - 5 in. Angle Grinder. I have been using the brushed version for the past year and a half but felt I needed more power and runtime. The FUEL version stepped up to the plate. Has been instrumental in stripping paint/rust/scale from a few metal restoration projects that I have been working on. The added power and extended run time using High Output 6amp batteries has saved me a great amount of time. The paddle switch is easy to use after a short learning curve if you haven't used one before. Definitely recommend.

            Great product
            This is an excellent product. With its small size, it can be easily stored in the car. It does require an AC power source to work. It has successfully reconditioned two batteries that auto dealers have said were not able to hold a charge. The “repair” mode saved over $300 in purchases for new batteries.

              The thead of the spindle seem to strip. The locking nut requires so much force to get on and off for no reason at all. When I got it off finally the spindle technically isn’t stripped but ifs been shines as if it was. I’m thinking of taking it back.
