This is a great addition to my Milwaukee line, this grinder has preformed better than I could ever Imagine. As long you use an 8.0 or larger battery this tool will make your drop cord Endup on the bottom of your gang box

Convenience at it's best
I originally purchased this angle grinder for field use to make setup and cleanup a little simpler. Now that I've gotten used to the convenience of this grinder, I end up using it in the shop for small to medium jobs because uncoiling and coiling up extension cords is such a pain (yes I'm spoiled). I use this grinder with the medium sized batteries, good quality abrasives, and with medium to light tool loading, it's worth the time savings. If you're looking for something to put under heavy load, you'll probably want to use the 12 amp hour battery however at that point, the battery gets a bit ridiculous in comparison to the size of the grinder.

Amazing performance and power
I needed to cut bricks from a wall. Attached a masonry cut off wheel to grinder and in a matter of seconds the job was done.

Tough environment calls for tough tools
I work in a silica sand mine as a Maintenance Mechanic. I needed a larger cordless grinder than my 4 1/2 Milwaukee grinder. I was glad to see that this model was available, and snapped it up. Very robust tool and a beast with 9.0 batteries. This grinder has become my go to option over my corded grinder most days.
