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.
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.
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.
