Milwaukee 4-Pole Motor delivers maximum power when cutting or grinding.

The only cordless cut-off/grinder in the market with a paddle switch design.

Best-in-Class Speed, Extended Runtime, and the Most Cuts per Charge
The 2680-22 owes its robust performance to a four-pole motor that rotates at a speed of 9,000 RPM to deliver maximum power when cutting or grinding--a best-in-class speed that's up to 35 percent faster than comparable models. It also provides up to 50-percent more runtime and the most cuts per charge.

Tool Free, Burst Resistant Guard allows for quick, easy guard adjustments.
Overload protection prevents damage to the tool and battery during heavy-duty jobs. Also, L-shaped vents keep debris from entering the tool, helping to ensure longer tool life.

An easy-access, accurate, tool-free, burst-resistant guard allows for quick guard adjustments that save you time and effort. Moreover, Milwaukee makes the only cut-off grinder with positive detents for holding the guard in place if a wheel burst occurs. This keeps debris away from the user, making for safer operation.

For ease of use, the 2680-22 is the only cut-off grinder sporting an innovative paddle switch design. It also boasts a three-position side handle for optimum control and versatility. And at just 5.9 pounds, this cut-off grinder is comfortable to hold and carry.

Reliable, long-lasting LITHIUM-ION power is just one part of a full feature set.
M18 Lithium-Ion Power: Compact, Lightweight, and Dependable
Cordless power frees you from the hassle of extension cords, but a cordless tool is only as reliable as its battery--that's where Milwaukee's M18 XC High-Capacity LITHIUM-ION batteries come in. Engineered to deliver torque, speed, and extended runtime, these batteries make use of Milwaukee's trademarked Digital Power Management technology to ensure long battery life. Additionally, overload protection, a temperature management system, and individual cell voltage monitoring guard your battery and your tools during tough jobs.

A convenient power gauge on each battery displays remaining runtime, and a second battery is included with the kit, so you never have to worry about running out of power in the middle of a task. Plus the M18 LITHIUM-ION battery charger is designed to recharge batteries in one hour or less.

Since lithium-ion batteries are significantly smaller and lighter than 18-volt NiCad batteries, they play an integral role in keeping Milwaukee's M18 tools ergonomic and comfortable to use. For added versatility, M18 tools also work with even lighter M18 Compact LITHIUM-ION Batteries (not included).

M18 Series Tools: Innovative, Powerful, and Easy to Handle
Launched in 2008, the M18 series from Milwaukee balances power and ergonomics. M18 tools pack the best-in-class, heavy-duty performance that you expect from Milwaukee into lighter, more compact bodies than those of traditional tools. This translates to improved versatility on the jobsite and reduced user fatigue at the end of the workday.

I am a union pipefitter, most of my work is heavy commercial and industrial. I've been in the trade for fifteen years. In my experience milwaukee makes great tools. Their corded grinders are second only to metabo in my opinion. I had the pleasure of using one of their new cordless grinders with the 18v red lithium battery recently. I was on a powerhouse when me and my welder were asked to cut out and replace a 2 inch globe valve in a piping system. The line was sc 80 carbon steel in a horrible spot under a tank. The spot was too tight to use a portaband and a torch would have been dangerous. We decided to use a grinder with cut off disks. Unfortunately when we got to the tool crib they were all out of corded grinders, it being an outage and all. So we took a brand new milwaukee cordless grinder and figured we would have a long twelve hour shift ahead of us. After letting the battery charge (which only took an hour) I went to work. Forty five minutes and four cut off disks latter I was calling out to my partner to throw me the rope so he could haul the heavy valve out. After that I grabbed another battery just in case and started beveling the two pipe ends. Another hour and we had a couple nice bevels. Not bad for a cordless. I used up one battery and i'm guessing about half the other one. My partner and I fit tacked and welded the new valve in and were back in the break room before four thirty. Pretty darn fast if you had seen the location.

All in all I was very impressed with the grinder. The power was good and it had a good charge per battery. The torque was less than a corded grinder but that just means you need to go a little slower and let the wheel do more if the work than your shoulder.

I read all the Amazon reviews, and purchased with a little apprehension. Did I say little? I own 3 corded 4-1/2" Milwaukee grinders, so this tool had some proving to do.
I recently used it along side one of my other corded grinders. In this instance, I mounted a flap wheel to d-bur and finish sand a project. It took two batteries and 3+ hours to finish sand with the cordless.
-- "Not continuous use, I want to make clear" --
The tool seemed well balanced and no heaver than my corded model. It was easier to maneuver than I thought, even with the battery mounted at the end, and obviously no cord in the way. Love the paddle trigger, not so wild about the safety, but I get it. "Safety"

Things it won't do:
You can't use this with the smaller batteries, don't even try! Use the XC's
It won't grind all day on a single battery, so don't expect it to. Two batteries are a must for jobs over 2 hours or so.

Things it will do:
Make smaller jobs a whole bunch easier and keep them smaller.
You can bare down on it, to a degree, but again don't expect it to act like a corded grinder.
Very good battery life.

With the reviews from Amazon customers, and a realistic expectation, I'm a very happy with this tool purchase.

Dont really know if it was worth all that money but it does the job well and sure beats dragging extention cords out . Blade they give you is crap so dont expect it to last to long. For a grinder it does really well with battery use but i would recommend keeping bateries charged if you plan on using this for multiple hrs at a time. Two batteries full last me around 3 hrs building random parts for my job.
