        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!

          Cuts Like Butter!
          Milwaukee really outdid themselves on this one! This M18 Fuel Sawzall Reciprocating Saw kit is great. The tool itself is lighter and smaller than their previous non-fuel m18 sawzall, with increased power. The option to adjust the tip length and remove it all together with the press of a button is amazing, it CAN fit into a Packout 3 Drawer Box with the end tip removed (again, no tools needed!). The quick release lever is great for quick blade changes and locks the blades in smooth and secure. The case the sawzall comes in is perfectly molded to fit the tool, a charger, and an additional battery or two. I love the power to weight ratio this tool provides, with minimal vibration, this sawzall will slice through anything from wood to plastic to fiberglass and even metal with great ease. If you are on the fence about purchasing this product, trust me when I say that you will not regret it.

            Hardcase is bulky and wasteful - skip it.
            Saw is fine. There are lots of reviews on that product. The xc5.0 battery delivers enough power in high demand tools so that is fine as well. I purchased this kit specifically for the hard case which I found completely unacceptable. The interior requires blade to be removed. Negligible storage space for accessories or blades. My 20 year old Dewalt Sawzall hard-case is smaller and more voluminous. Infinitely more useful. I will be returning it for the tool-only version.

              Wanted this saw for awhile
              Very good saw, cuts great, the carrying case is great, you can store the tool with the battery and changer and there’s room for another battery in the case. I have had my eye on this saw for awhile, I’m in the process of upgrading my old power tools with new Milwaukee tools, I might go broke doing it but it will probably be worth it.

              Great tool
              I have a Milwaukee corded grinder, which I am very happy with. But the cordless is the way to go. I has just as much power as the corded version. I had a cheap orange one I won't mention the brand. I had that for 20years and didn't have any issues with until I got this one. Wow what a difference. I'm painter so I don't use it for welding jobs. I use it to cut a variety of things. Metal, tile backer board. Even sanding. I have several different blade and sanding discs. I'm very happy with this tool.

              Great Design - Lots of Power
              This Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4-1/2 in./5 in. Grinder with Variable Speed & Paddle Switch is a premium quality 4 ½ & 5 in. angle grinder that can use any M18 battery. This is a tool-only grinder so you need an M18 battery and charger. I decided upon this particular model #2888-20 because it has a paddle-style on/off switch and it has 5 speeds to select from. The brushless-motor in this FUEL model gives more power with less energy consumption than older designs. In fact, the Milwaukee FUEL line of cordless tools is the only one I will buy. I still have some brushed-motor Milwaukee tools but once you try one of these Milwaukee FUEL tools you will be spoiled. I used a 2.0 amp M18 battery and a metal cutting disk to cut off a pipe sticking out of the ground in my yard. This grinder cut it off quickly with no stalling on speed setting 3. Lots of power! Milwaukee says that grinder has the equivalent power of an 11 amp corded grinder and I believe it. I also used a grinding wheel just to test it out on some rusty scrap metal and was impressed. This grinder has a 5/8 inch arbor and that has some people confused about what size of disk it requires. The answer is that you need cutting or grinding disks with a 7/8 inch diameter hole. This and most other 5/8 in. arbor grinders have an adapter ring/shoulder that perfectly centers these 7/8 in. hole diameter disks. Angle grinders are very useful tools to have around the shop. They can cut metals and masonry, use wire wheels for rust removal, use grinding wheels for metal grinding and lots of other things. A very good feature of this grinder is that when you release the trigger paddle the blade stops almost instantly. It is an impressive safety feature. It seems that my old corded grinder takes 10-15 seconds to stop, and I wind up wasting time holding it up and waiting for it to stop. I also like this grinder’s safety shield. It is a 2-piece combo shield that works for both 4 ½ in. and 5 in. diameter disks and it can be rotated to the left or right just by pressing a spring-loaded lever. The same lever allows quick tool-less removal of the shield. The side handle can be attached to either side of the grinder in a few seconds depending upon how you intend to use the tool. The tool is covered by a 5 -year warranty. I liked the paddle-style trigger and the only drawback is that it can’t be locked in the “on” position like the sliding-switch versions. You can get a sliding-switch version of this grinder if that’s what you like. This tool is another example of the professional quality that I have come to expect from the Milwaukee FUEL line. This is a great tool and I highly recommend it.

              Another Milwaukee Tool Winner!
              We've been slowly switching out our older cheaper electric/battery powered tools for Milwaukee. You can get other brands for less money - you won't get the Milwaukee Tool quality. I have a 9-year old Milwaukee Tool battery drill/driver (a lighter weight version); it's my go-to tool, so it's well-used - and it's still going strong! We have some mortar needing to be cleaned up and tuck-pointed. While this Cordless Grinder didn't come with any tools or battery, we have M18 batteries. And it's inexpensive to purchase mortar grinder wheels. Be aware this is a fairly heavy tool: by the time you insert the battery and wheel, it's going to weigh over 5 lbs. The extended grip helps balance the weight, but your arms are going to get a workout. Sure, there are lighter options out there, but with the Milwaukee Brand you get quality and longevity.

              Power & Flexibility
              Fast and efficient in the right hands (I need more practice - watch the video) this well made grinder is almost the same as my corded model but with the freedom to move without worrying about the cord. Weight-wise it feels about the same as the old one too. Assembly is quick and easy and the guard position can be switched around instantly. The paddle switch as a good deal of control and is not tiring to use. The tool brakes quickly which is a good safety feature.

              Really heavy and eats batteries
              This is kind of a niche tool. For home use my corded tools weigh less, have more power, and cost a lot less. Even the corded tools that have less than this tool's claimed 11 amp equivalent power have more guts. Plus my corded tools are much more compact. After adding a 6+ amp hour battery to get some useable time out of this thing it is very bulky and easily twice as heavy as a corded tool. Now as for out in the field away from an outlet then yeah it is useful. The speed control adds a fine touch to polishing and sanding operations. But I mostly use it for cutting. Things like brick. Suddenly it is a battery hog that doesn't feel any more powerful than any other cordless grinder I've used. It is a burst of productivity until your battery is dead and you have wrist fatigue from the bulk and weight. I will say that it is well made and designed. It is vented in a way to avoid eating it's own dust and is very solid. I just don't like the overmolded butyl rubber stuff that is a sand and dirt magnet that makes this thing feel gritty and slippery.

              So convenient
              This is my first battery operated grinder and I can assure you it is just as strong as a corded but far more convenient. It's very easy to handle and is significantly lighter than my corded. Setup was very easy. The easily adjustable guard is so much better than the ones that require screw driver adjustments. It only comes with the 5inch guard and states you should get a 4.5 inch guard if that's what you're going to use. I used it using a diamond blade to cut cement board and it blasted through it like it was nothing using a 4.5 inch blade . Highly recommended and it will get yons of use.
