5" Grinder

,
May 5, 2015
By PaulF1000
from Milwaukee WI
" Very well made, the switch could be a bit bigger. When wearing gloves its a bit small. Otherwise the grinder cuts through metal under a 1/4" like a hot knife in butter.
I've used it a few times and am satisfied. I will say I haven't found 5" wheels made by Milwaukee Tools so I purchased after market wheels. These have functioned just fine.
I purchased this grinder after reading several buying guides and comparison articles. It's a little more expensive but everything I read said the Milwaukee grinders last far longer than other brands. Given that I'll only occasionally use it it should be the last grinder I ever buy. "

Milwaukee 5in. Variable Speed Grinder 6117-33D

,
December 3, 2014
By crmzac
from pittsburgh
" Excellent tool. I use many different attachments so variable speed is essential. This model is the only compact grinder with this feature. The motor is powerful and has an auto shutoff under binding conditions. I would prefer a paddle switch over the slide because of easier access but that is a minor negative. "

Versatile tool!

,
September 20, 2013
By Joshua37
from Hillsboro, VA
" I have found this grinder to be very versatile as I have cut and polished Granite, cut metal and sharpened tools with it. It's a little on the heavy side as Milwaukee's tend to be, but rugged and solid. The handle is comfortable to use and the guard is well designed. This grinder has a slow start feature where it doesn't jerk when you turn it on as most grinder's do. It also has a feature that it attempts to keep the rpm's up even under load. The variable speed is useful when polishing granite, etc. Good tool, I'd get it again. "
