Why not put a bag with it, then this would be a sure buy for me ???

Asked by: Rickey
Hello. The Ridgid bags are well made and typically roomy. I tucked this tool into an existing Ridgid bag with no problems. It is in a bag with two drills, two batteries, a charger and some spare grinding wheels. If you have any existing bags, one of them might be the answer to your question.

what is a good dust shroud to use with this?

Asked by: swingtanzer
Hey swingtanzen! Thanks for the question. Most universal dust shrouds for a 4-1/2 in. angle grinder should fit this tool. There are many great options on homedepot.com. Hope this helps!

Why do you, Ridgid, charge this much and not even supply a bag? (I know no one supplies real tool boxes anymore. What a shame.... feels like everything is about the buck and not the customer.)
Asked by: Dissapointed
I would agree but as far as I'm concerned the LSA is a lifetime of replacements due to not having a case or"bag"to keep it in , I am diehard case fan if anything comes with out a case I won't buy it to hard to keep organized and track of even from bits to a bosch bulldog

How likely will this work for wet work like cutting Granite?

How likely will this work for wet work like cutting Granite?
Asked by: Jacob
I had a quick weld repair in a food manufacturing plant and the only power that was close was 220v. I needed to cut a small groove in the piece and asked my customer if they had a battery powered grinder.. They had a Milwaukee and it did what I needed. I realised I needed one and because I own a Ridgid drill and just replaced the dead batteries with the new Lithium packs I decided to go with the Ridgid brand. I broke it out several days later just to try it out and was pretty disappointed (compared to an electric) in the lack of power and the spindle speed was only 8500 rpm compared to 10,000 rpm of my ac powered grinders. needless to say I broke out the electric grinder and finished the job. No..! I would not recommend a battery grinder in place of an electric one but they do have their place..

Brushless is cool but y go down 500rpms from the x4 grinder x4 is 9000 brushless is 8500?

Asked by: Ridgidman
I don't think it is even 8500 RPM. Either way the 18-Volt Cordless Brushless 4-1/2 in. Angle Grinder is more announce then useful as it continually cuts out. The cut out frequency may be due to size of battery used.
