        Fantastic tool, I've had the regular (non-fuel) cordless grinder for a while and it's always left something to be desired. This new grinder leaves nothing to be desired! It cuts and grinds without issue and doesn't get easily overloaded like my other cordless grinder.

            Comments about M18 FUEL 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion 4-1/2 in. - 5 in. Paddle Switch Grinder (Bare Tool):

            I bought this to prep and clean welds but it exceeded my expectations in power and run time. I don't know if it's the fuel features but this thing is a perfect grinder for light shop production work. 18v xc 4.0 battery lets you cut the cord! Using it to trim and cut steel. Planning to try it on granite soon. Now I want a shop full of fuel tools and a stable of 4-5 batteries to run everything.

              Used for general fabrication. Fabbing a preunner front bumper and used it with a cut off wheel and flapper wheel to cut/trim the frame horns. Battery life not quite what I was hoping for, BUT this tool has a lot of power and I tried to bog it down but it kept going. Actually cut and ground down both frame horns on one 4.0 battery.
              This is ideal for those quick jobs where dealing with a cord is a pain.

                Q:

                I bought this tool to use on a log home sanding large pillar logs.

                Where can I find/buy the accessories to do the job? Sanding disks, backing pad, spindle, disc nut, etc??

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

              Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
