This is my second one.
Easy to control with the variable speed. Wouldn't have anything else. I use cutoff discs an flap wheels and it's better than any air tool

This is an excellent tool.
I mainly work on granite and stone and need various speeds. The tool is heavy enough for demanding jobs but light enough for long periods. A smooth running angle grinder.

nice tool w/several long needed features
Constant speed at any setting very nice.
Variable speed with wire wheels and brushes very useful (also much more safe and easier to control).

Power switch to easily bumped off of lock.

Shroud too tight a fit and had to be hammered on. Looks like poor casting or other dimension control!

These small grinders finally have enough torque/power

Powerful grinder does the job but.....
At times when I press the power switch on, the grinder does not turn on. Sometimes I have to press it a few times for it to turn on. I'm concerned that the power switch may fail.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
I use a small grinder to grind off welds, grind metal, wire brush paint and oxidation, cut off small profiles of metal, grind concrete and rock, polish rocks for lapidary applications, and much more.

The Good:
Most of the time one is limited to a single r.p.m., which invariably is in the higher range. This tool, where it is variable speed via a "dial" on the rear of the tool just above where the cord emerges covers a good range of r.p.m.s. It is the variable speed that enables one to use the tool for so many different applications. High r.p.m.s for grinding steel or other metals; slower for sanding, wire brushing, and grinding concrete/ceramic; and slower yet for polishing.

I purchased this unit as a reconditioned grinder. Not only is there a savings, but I believe the technicians who service the units take extra care that everything is fully optimal.

The Bad:
While this is really not the fault of Milwaukee, especially where the tool has to be thicker to accommodate the power needed; but I am older with gout and arthritis. While the thicker body of the tool is probably fine for you youngsters, I find it more difficult to grasp and control. To counter this I "jury-Rigged" a handle that comes off the right side of the tool and is secured opposite the threaded handle hole on the left side of the head of the tool. (See the photo attached.) In addition, the auxiliary handle allows for the grinder to draw more air into the motor and gear assembly to keep it cooler. For you lefties, one just transposes the handles.

The Ugly:
I have purchased Milwaukee tools for years. I was a little concerned when I cranked up this tool to hear an oscillating sound atypical of other Milwaukee grinders I have owned. A I performed some wire brushing the noise diminished, but is still there. Perhaps it just needs to be broken in.

Best small grinder so far!
I use grinders constantly in my field and I love this one! It is typical Milwaukee "plumber proof" quality I've grown to know over the years. Never had variable speed on an angle grinder. Now I don't think I could live without it. It is nearly as strong as 7" grinders, but with the weight and size of 4 1/2" ones. Got it refurbished and saved a ton. CPO provided perfect service. I have no regrets on this one!!!

Outstanding Small Angle Grinder
I purchased this grinder to help me with automotive work and metal fabrication as an avid hobbyist. So far, it has been absolutely fantastic. In fact, my only complaint is that the tool free guard can be somewhat difficult to adjust while wearing gloves.

Good Stuff
It sounds as if it is grinding up rocks - even without a load - however, this may be a characteristic of all angle grinders,I'm not sure of that. Use ear protection along with that eye protection.

BEST ANSWER: The lowest RPM this grinder will achieve is 2,800. The highest is 11,000. It run at 13 amps.
I would like to use it for car paint polishing, is it useful for that application at 2800 RPM? I would use it for metal grinding too but i want to have a multi-porpuse tool. Thanks

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.
