I bought this grinder based mostly on it's current rating (11 amp) and brand name as I've had good experiences with Milwaukee in the past. It does have plenty of power and does not bog down when I put some force on the disc against the workpiece. The problem is the weight and handle. This grinder is fairly heavy so if you're going to use it for extended periods of time, be prepared to wrest your wrists. The 'paddle' trigger is not really much of a paddle in comparison with other products on the market. To balance it and keep control you need to hold it far back on the handle but the trigger 'paddle' is really difficult to keep engaged when you hold it that far back. The body of the grinder is so large that it's just awkward feeling and hard to keep your hand wrapped around it while keeping the trigger engaged. Overall I liked the power but I was so dissapointed with the handle/trigger mechanism that I seriously considered returning it. Once I used it that night it was so dirty I didn't feel comfortable trying to get my money back. For the money, I don't feel the design supports the price tag.
