Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT AS ADVERTISED i have many other Milwaukee tools which are awesome and i love them for working on cars. but i bought this one to try to use some wire brushes and light sand disks and it just doesn't do the job. the tool is very power hungry and will eat up batteries very fast. if using a small 3ah will last less than 10m and will stop as soon as there is any kind of load on it. thought it was the battery so i got a 6ah xc battery and it will last a lot longer but still will jam up and makes the tool almost unusable. its 3x more in price then a cheap air die grinder and performs way worse. not sure if something is wrong with mine but very not happy with this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I just bought this tool to replace my old air one that is worn out, I have replaced all of my air tools with Milwaukee tools and have never once regretted the decision until I bought this. Under the smallest load it stalls out, and absolutely drains batteries. My other tools will last weeks or heavy use without needing charged, and with this one I cant accomplish 2 minutes of work without needing a new battery

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost there The die grinder is on the bulky side for the power in comparison to its traditional air counterparts, however it does take a fair bit of force to stall it out. I don’t recommend it for continuous cutting with a zip disc, it can do it...but you will drain a 4ah battery in a couple minutes. Works great with roloc disc attachments and burrs, haven't tried sanders on it yet but I have no doubt they will work well with it. A couple recommendations for future versions would be to angle the light away from the fingers, and when the tool stalls, have it pulse the motor at one second intervals to check if the load has been removed from the tool. If it has, then the tool can start again without resetting the trigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and versatile tool! Love this tool!!!! My huge air compressor is at the shop and having a battery powered Stubby die grinder with so much power and rpm was a great addition to my home garage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing new tool in the Milwaukee M12 lineup This tool is Amazing! I was so impressed with the ratchets that I decided to go cordless on my other favorite shop tool as well. This grinder is powerfull and has 4 adjustable speeds and the trigger squeeze gives you fine control. Its so powerfull it turned my 1" steel brush to a 2" when te centrifugal forced the bristles outward. Its much quiter, convenient and portable than my old ( but quality) pneumatic unit. I cant recomend this enough...only downfall is you'll want to buy all the M12 brushless tools!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, but not for Hard use. So I was waiting for a product like this from milwaukee for quite the while now. I am very pleased with all other M12 and M18 tools i have. I got this tool almost right after it came out and was very excited to try it out. I am an autobody tech and use lots of air die grinders so it would have been great to replace them all with battery powered ones. I do like that the grinder is very portable and that is probably the only reason I will keep it. I found that as a grinder it works fine for small jobs but i tried using it for a door skin replacement and found it to be almost usless, because as soon as you use it for a few minutes it gets really hot, and kills 3amp batteries in a few minutes. changing that door skin i used 4 3amp batteries, and finally grabed my air die grinder to finish up. For any other attachments(cut-off wheel, abrasive wheel, carbide bit) i found if pretty useless aswell because it cuts out waaay to early. it feels like the tool would have to power to do the jobs ,but it is set to cut out too early. also when it gets warm from using then it cuts out even quicker. So in the end i am very dissapointed in this tool for what i need it. If milwaukee changed the cut out point then i would love it. But i will still continue using it for small jobs and where i dont have air to hook up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This might be my favourite tool This little guy might just be the best tool I have every bought. I was watching the tech's at work us these with every brake job, so I though I would get one at home for metal and wood working. I pull this out of the tool drawer with almost every project I'm working on. It's so compact and light to be able to smooth down or take a burr off something quickly. HIGHLY recommended for pretty much everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from greatest little helper Compact, quiet, flexible tool. This tool is incredibly versatile; it grinds, sands, polishes, deburrs... I use the typical angle grinder a lot, but for smaller stuff or for tight places I go to this tool first. A big plus is that it's much less noisy which family members and neighbours and the user will appreciate.
