Details

This 13 amp, 6,000 RPM, 2.25 maximum horsepower sander provides high performance and durability for moderately heavy jobs. Sold without accessories, a 7 in. or 9 in. backing pad and disc can be attached allowing this tool to be used for removing paint or rust from metal, plastic and fiberglass surfaces. Spiral bevel gears transfer maximum torque for heavy duty jobs. Spring loaded recessed spindle lock assists in easy accessory changes. This tool can be converted to a grinder by purchasing either a 7 in. or 9 in. guard and wheel which are easily attached to the tool. Grinding applications remove more material and may be used to shape metal.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
great tool performs as marketed, love it
I was in the middle of refinishing the surface of my swimming pool and my 40 year old right angle grinder finally died (I rebuilt it one time). It got so hot when I used it I had to wear gloves. I have many other Milwaukee Power Tools so I looked at buying a Milwaukee product. I wanted power, variable speed and the 6078 was just what I was looking for. When I got it, I immediately used it for two weeks for several hours a day. It performed better than my expectations and I pushed it hard. It never got warm, and I wore out 2 - 7" grinding discs. Excellent tool as all Milwaukee tools are. I have several and I am very happy with them all. A little higher priced than the other brands, but well worth it in the long run.

I am impressed...
This product is great. It is like New. I have never bought anything that is reconditioned before and would gladly do it again. It absolutely looks like a new machine and it acts like it. I love this grinder!!

Perfect tool for polishing metal!
This tool worked great on diamond plate and brass. I used the Zephyr cutting/polishing wheels and bars. That was a great combination. We have tried every polish out there to polish our fire engine. This combo worked the best.

Versatile tool, not American made
I polish ornamental metals for a living; therefore, I find having a variable speed grinder invaluable. I can use one grinder on a variety of metals.

I am disappointed that this particular grinder is made in China. I have always relied on Milwaukee to provide a quality tool and only time will tell with this one.

We don't mind extra for quality and expect it to be delivered. Otherwise I could have purchased a much less expensive Makita or some box store brand which are also made in China
