Details

This 13 amp, 6000 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.

      Comments about 2.25 Max HP 7-in/9-in Variable-Speed Sander, 0-6,000 RPM:

      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

            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!!

            Comments about 2.25 Max HP 7-in/9-in Variable-Speed Sander, 0-6,000 RPM:

            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.

            Questions & Answers

             

            New Vs. 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.
