The grinder is lightweight, powerful, and the Lithium ion batteries you may use from another set are very lightweight. I have used the grinder on concrete, for cutting the bottoms of door jambs, tile, and other applications. It has plenty of power to spare, and does a superb job.
I have become a real fan of Hitachi tools over the last year. I started with the combo set I mentioned above, and have expanded my tool set to include almost all of Hitachi's 18v cordless tools (reciprocating saw, etc.), as well as a miter saw and a few other power tools. I recommend looking at the reviews for each type of tool you are considering, but let me tell you that I saved a lot of money and have totally interchangeable tools using just a few batteries (which is where most of the expense is). I highly recommend Hitachi 18v cordless tools and this grinder in particular.
I got this cordless to use to prep the front of my house for paint. My place is over 100 years old & has a kaleidoscopic layering of paint that you would expect from an ancient & urban abode. I was using a corded grinder to do a lot of the prep but I needed a 4.5" grinder to fit the paint removing pads that i had read about (Wagner Power Products 513041 Paint Eater Replacement Disc), and I thought that a cordless would be SOOOOO much more convenient. And it was... for the first 10 minutes. Then the grinder died & I thought "Aww no way... i must've grabbed a partially charged batt." Slapped the new batt in... same deal. So I actually *bought* a new batt just in case--same deal. YIPES!! At this rate i would need 3 chargers & 9 batteries to pull this off. It's a real shame too because the time that it was grinding you really notice how much nicer things are "sans cord"...
Now you may be thinking "Oh he's just way overpowering it--pushing so hard the motor nearly stalls." Nope. I was actually babying it, even more than usual because i've read that these particular paint disks work better with a super light touch.
So my final suggestion to those of you out there drawn to the siren call of going completely cordless: don't do eet! At least not with this grinder. I can't speak for any other brands (Bosch, Milwaukee or whatever) but this one doesn't cut it for anything but, IMO, light duty work. If all you need is to have something handy to cut the odd bolt or some rebar or perhaps for some lighter tile work you will probably be fine with this product...Read more ›

Just what is needed when there are no electrical outlets in the area.
Works well, and takes almost all types of disks ;-)
