Milwaukee M18 Fuel Braking Grinder – 2783

Over the years we have done a bunch of grinders, but this grinder is the first of it’s kind.  As you know Milwaukee always pushes the limit on what they can do with their tools to make them better, safer and allow the user to be more productive.  So let me introduce you to the new M18 Milwaukee 2783 Grinder.  As with the other Milwaukee tools you can get this as a bare kit 2783-20 or with batteries 2783-22.  So what is so special about this grinder? The first big thing is the braking feature.  The tool will come...

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Grinder Review

Now if you know me, you know I am a huge fan of Milwaukee for a number of reasons. However, I was never a big fan of their M18 grinder.  While it did the job, I had problems with the Overload Protection and how easy it would kick on.   Well guess what, Milwaukee made some changes and made this grinder a winner.  Now I am not saying that because I am a Milwaukee fan, I am saying this because it’s a cordless grinder that actually works.  It does what it should and doesn’t kick off. Milwaukee started out...

Milwaukee M18 Grinder – 2680-20

If you have been reading our posts, then you know I upgraded my tool collection with the Milwaukee M18 line.  I got the 4 piece combo kit model 2630-20 to start the collection.  The kit did not come with a grinder, so since I only have three other grinders, I had to get the Milwaukee.  While the other tools in the line up have impressed me, the grinder is nice, but not as impressive.  Don’t get me wrong the balance and power are great, but I could do without the OP. The battery powers a 4 pole frame-less motor...

Metabo W18 LTX 18 Volt 4-1/2 Inch Cordless Angle Grinder – There is a New Sheriff in Town

German engineering is renowned for innovation.  Take a look at BMW, Porsche, and even Mercedes Benz before the Chrysler days they are all quality products that are the front runners in their industry.  We have some upcoming welding projects, and recently I was at the welding store.  They had a host of grinders from all the major manufacturers and a they also had Metabo.  I asked the guy who worked there what he thought of Metabo.  He said for grinders nothing compares, they last forever and his customers preferred Metabo.  A few weeks back I received an email from...

Makita LXT Grinder Review – BGA452

This is a review of the Makita Grinder model number BGA452 that came in the kit  LXT702.  The Makita Grinder is built well. The motor delivers 10,000 RPMs and subsequently produces fast and effective grinding. Like all Makita tools in this cordless kit, it is very compact in design. It is 12-1/2″ long and weighs in at only 5.6 lbs with battery included. The Ergonomic grip makes the tool very easy to use, and the pressure delivered is even, producing easy control.  We didn’t have a problem gripping the grinder, but we do wish there was a little more black grip on the shaft.  The hard plastic can tend to be a little slippery at times.  The Grinder comes with a built-in electronic control circuit with LED warning lights for overload protection. Also, if the battery is starting to drain, the LED lights will come on to warn the user to change the battery.  As with most grinders, it has a slide switch with lock-on. The actual grinding wheel is 4-1/2″. The cut-off wheel is 4-1/2″. The wire cup brush comes in at 3-1/2″. The sanding disc is also 4-1/2″. The grinder delivers 54 watt hours of use, and the battery is 18VDC (3.0Ah). The grinder was fun to test. It may not seem like much, but we like being able to screw in the handle on either side...
