This is a quick look at the Milwaukee grinder
kit, which includes 2880-20. That's the M18 Fuel four and a half inch slash five inch grinder.
Has a brushless motor, and comes with a five inch type 27 guard as well as a five
inch type 1 guard. The convenient thing about it is the type one guard just slides right over
the twenty seven so no need to swap out guards. The guard lock provides for
quick and easy guard adjustments, and this is the paddle switch version of the
There's also a switched version, which has a switch own top. That's model 2881-20. Also
has a dust screen to prevent debris from getting into the vents. You just pop it off and clean it
out. Anti vibration handle has two positions. Here or here. And this particular model does not
have a position on the top for the handle, but of the grinders I've used that actually have
it, I actually never use it. Spanner wrench, manual, and the kit includes two XC6 high
output batteries, that's awesome, rapid charger, and the fuel contractor bag. Unfortunately,
the fuel contractor bag does not have any pockets on the inside to store cutoff wheels.
Not that you're supposed to store cutoff wheels in there anyway. It does however have two
pockets on the outside if you need them. There are no cut-off wheels included, so when you pickup your grinder make sure you pickup some
The arbor size of this tool is 5/8" 11. Eleven being the number of threes per
inch on the spindle for brush wheel accessories. 5/8 being the inner cutout of your cut-off wheels;
however, the tool can accommodate cutouts of 7/8" of an inch as well. Depending on
the thickness of your your wheel, uh, you may need to flip this flange nut
over. Maximum capacity is five inches uhm and maximum width is a 1/4 inch. It's a
really nice tool.
Looking forward to using it. It doesn't break that quickly. Definitely has some
pull when it starts up, but it's pretty powerful. I also notice there's a little shimmy
in the guard when it's running, but this is a five inch guard and this is a 4.5
inch wheel. Technically you should be using a 4.5 inch guard with a 4.5 inch
wheel and uh I'll just take one from my other Milwaukee grinder.
