A:  Thank you for taking the time to ask this question. I'm sure it was hard typing and eating lead paint chips on the short bus but you did it! Yay! I'd recommend sticking to a plastic toy set of Stanley Tools

      Q:I can change the 6ah battery for 2 3ah battery?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Why? This comes with 2 6ah batts so you can be charging one while using the other. That's the only reason ( I think ) you would want the 2 3ah batts.

        Great Power to Size Ratio - Well Balanced
        As the title states, this m18 variable speed paddle grinder is the bee's knees! I didn't think I'd have a huge need for the variable speed but man was I wrong! The variable speed is great for various material and thickness cutting and grinding jobs, to ensure a clean, sharp appearance or cut. The power that this has is easily comparable to a corded version while still maintaining a great light-weight and balanced feel. The low profile head allows access into tight spaces, and when paired with Milwaukee's great included warranty, I have no dounts this will be a daily use item for years to come. My only regret is not getting one sooner!

          Another must have
          Great grinder. Love the variable speed. I wish all of mulwaukees grinders had this feature. Head is a little bulkier and unit is about an inch longer than the standard fuel grinder but it is a nice option to have.
