Missing one important feature!
I have used mine several times but I think dewalt missed the mark or rather missed a really big marked. If they would have made this thing variable speed this tool would be used by concrete and stone polishers everywhere also if they made a sealed unit for to be water safe would be huge

This is my first dewalt cordless grinder. It comes to work with me, even though i have shop provided power tools.
I have used other brands and found them to be lacking in power, run time and performance. This Flexvolt grinder is a different machine. It will zip through fiberglass, 5/8'' U-bolts, power through sanding and other prep/demo tasks. i havent been able to bog it down with a 4.5 abrasive disk or anything of the sort.
Once you look past the price, you realize that you've got the best cordless grinder, period, a battery system that works with your existing 20v tools, and a fast charger.

Awesome Power! Period!
I bought this to use at the junkyard as a cutoff wheel more than anything else. However while its perfect for that use. Its also become a tool that I use when doing heavy fab work. I have both the 20v Max grinder and a corded dewalt grinder. But this is the one I use most often. I find it has almost as much power as the corded grinder but the kick back brake has saved me a couple of trips to the hospital on a few occasions. It definitely hogs off material far quicker than the 20v grinder does. Its also a smoother running grinder than the 20v. I just love it! Plus the fact that as a diesel mechanic I'm able to get these tools from the Mac Tools distributor (tool truck) just makes it that much better because the wife doesn't have to know how much they cost...! I will definitely be getting more FlexVolt tools in the very near future.
