Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best angle grinders on the market [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have several of these at our tire shop and we use them mostly with a wire wheel attached to clean rims. They have held up to a lot of abuse and being dropped. The batteries have decent life and we use them daily. The trigger on this model is very easy to use and makes for a comfortable grip. I would definitely recommend this product and have (3) in use currently.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great grinder with nice weight to power ratio. I love this thing. I love the two batteries that it comes with and the charger and of course the grinder. Everything fits nicely into the bag and the weight is perfect. Its got a nice guard on it to protect you from the disc but it can be removed if necessary. The handle can be mounted on either side and it appears to have a shock absorber to reduce vibration or at least that's what it looks like. Noise level is nice in that it seems to be quieter than my other Milwaukee plug-in grinder. All in all this is a nice, versatile grinder that can go anywhere you need it to go! Truly love it.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a paddle switched corded grinder and debated between getting this Milwaukee cordless grinder with the slide switch or the paddle switch. I elected to go with the slide switch and it has worked out great. I no longer have to keep my hand firmly on the switch. That gives me a bit more flexibility in hand positions while using it. Being cordless has been great. I don’t have to mind the cord and the power hasn’t been an issue. The kit comes with two 6AH batteries and a charger. I can also swap in batteries from my other tools if I run through the charge on one before the other is fully recharged. It is about as heavy as my corded grinder, but the batteries balance the tool nicely. The protective shroud can be rotated to protect from sparks in multiple positions. Overall I really like this tool. I haven’t found a flaw in it.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've become a big fan of cordless tools, and I'm a huge fan of Milwaukee products, so when I got the chance to try out this Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4 1/2 in/5 in. Grinder, I jumped at the chance. Can't say I'm disappointed in the least - this is one powerful grinder. With the proper cutting wheels, it made quick work of everything I threw at it. Ceramic tile, masonry, steel, concrete block, all no problem. And with the 6.0 AH battery, you have plenty of cutting time. The weight of the grinder is well balanced and the tool handles easily. And the shield adjusts quickly to change the cutting field, something my old corded grinder couldn't do. No more hot metal shards flying off where they don't belong. 2 batteries and the charger are included, as is a carrying bag to keep things organized. I'm very happy with this tool. Another fine effort from Milwaukee and highly recommended!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4 1/2 inch to 5 inch Grinder is a very nice tool to have in your arsenal. It is pretty heavy and measures 12 1/2 inches long without the battery or 16 inches long with the XC6.0 battery attached. When you first get it, you need to charge your batteries before using it. It comes with 2 – XC 6.0 batteries and a battery charger that charges both the 18 volt and 12-volt Milwaukee batteries. As stated, this is not a lightweight tool. It requires both hands to use it. It is single speed with a locking on/off switch. One major issue I had with the switch is that it’s too easy to turn it on. While using the tool it slipped in my hand and my thumb slid over the switch. The tool turned on and the switch automatically locked. It almost cut my arm but I dropped it and got out of its way. The wheel guard is not attached when the tool arrives but is easily assembled and can be swiveled and locked into 5 pre-set positions. The battery slides into the end of the grinder and locks into position. Easily removed by simultaneously squeezing 2 side buttons and slide the battery off. The battery slides into the battery charger but doesn’t lock into place. The lights on the battery light up to indicate the level it is charged. This tool is an M18 (18 volt) but the charger will also charge M12 (12 volt) Milwaukee batteries. Also included is a side handle that can be screwed into either side of the grinder for more support and control during operation. This grinder can be used with any 4 1/2 inch or 5-inch grinding wheel, cutoff wheel, wire brush wheel, or any disk normally used on a side grinder. None are included with this kit but easily available at any Home Depot. A spanner wrench is included to assist in installing or removing the wheels. The tool and accessories come with a large, zippered Milwaukee tool bag that easily holds everything in this kit plus a large assortment of several wheels and disks. Instructions are provided for both the grinder and charger in English, French, and Spanish. A 5-year warranty is provided on the tool and 3-year warranty on the batteries. The tool and charger are made in Vietnam and the guard is made in China. This is a very durable and powerful portable grinder and is very handy without having to drag out power extension cords.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4-1/2 in./5 in. Grinder, Slide Switch Kit with Two 6.0 Ah Batteries is awsome! The kit has pretty much all the things you need to do most any grinding job. As always, the Milwaukee batteries seem to last forever. The grinder is well balanced in your hands. And the power seems to be better than my corded grinder. Great tool. And I firmly recomend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Milwaukee M18 Fuel grinder tool easily tops the scale in power, quality, durability and craftsmanship. I have a number of the Fuel brushless tools and have never been disappointed in their performance. While these tools may be more expensive than other tool brands, there is no comparison - as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. In addition to the grinder itself, the kit comes with two M18 RedLithium High output 6Ah battery packs providing extended run time. Also included are a combination 18v and 12v rapid charger, type 1 and type 27 disk guards, spanner tool, and a large soft-sided carrying bag. The grinders guard has six detents and is quickly adjustable. The motor air vents at the base of the handle has a filter screen which is easily detachable for cleaning – prevents metal dust and debris from damaging the motor. The screw-in side handle has a vibration dampening construction which works very well and is a welcomed feature for large jobs. The tool and battery weigh-in at 6.8 pounds – heavier than a corded grinder but with much more job-site flexibility. Overall, very happy with this tool and highly recommend it for the professional or DIYer.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great tool for the job! The large 6 ah batteries are big and offer a lot of power and cutting time between charges. I like that the motor is brushless so I expect a long life for this grinder. The tool is balanced well but and a little heavier than other grinders I have used. However, I expect that from a tool that is required to perform very well, all the time, as do all of my other Milwaukee tools. The recharge time of the batteries from dead to full is about 20 minutes. So it is very handy if you have the backup battery ready. I do not use the tool enough that I will see a need for my standby battery but who knows as it is better to be prepared than waiting. I did not read that the tool did not come with at least one wheel. That's on me but it would have been nice to have a starter wheel included. I would still give the tool 10 stars if I could.
