I have the Makita as well. I mentioned in another thread my main use is for coping trim. I have used it to flash roofs into stucco/block and the occasional cutting of tile for a new door but a corded grinder would be your best bet if you are using it that long for many days.May 2, 2014 at 12:24 am #126832
I have 2 of the Makitas because I don’t like changing the wheels. I keep a flapped wheel one one and a metal cutting disc on the other.

I don’t think there is a snowball’s chance a cordless grinder would do 45 min of grinding.May 2, 2014 at 6:32 am #126905
No, it doesn’t sound like it. I used my impact for 3 or 4 hours at a time before charging the battery whe i was doing my deck but i guess I wasn’t really using it steady. Drive a screw, load a screw, drive a screw, load a screw…move over repaeatMay 2, 2014 at 6:51 am #126917

There are still a lot of applications where cords are necessary. I do look forward tot he day when they are not, but I don’t know that I will still be in the business at that time.
Sometimes you cant beat a cord.May 2, 2014 at 4:03 pm #127039
If i find one for a decent price i’ll buy it and give it a shot. Worst that happens is it doesn’t do what i hope it will but I’ll still ahve a tool that is Ok for occasional useNovember 11, 2014 at 11:12 pm #214741
I have the Bosch 18v die grinder. It’s a perfect fit in the toolbag and let’s me switch between cutting metal and smoothing edges easily. Sometimes it’s nice to have a Dremel on steroids in your bag.November 11, 2014 at 11:17 pm #214746
I’ve had the dewalt 18volt and 20vmax both work great . Cutting tile , brick , siding , metal etc . Great for portable use .

Have been wanting to try one out to see how long it last grinding joints out on brick. When we only have a little to do, this may be a great option.

I have the ryobi, mainly because it was $20, works great for small grinding and cutting tasks. For heavy or production work i agree with others a corded metabo all the wayDecember 23, 2014 at 10:55 pm #240655
Have you even tried/borrowed someones cordless. Even if you could justify the cost of all those batteries for their increased convenience– do you think the tool itself would have the balls?December 23, 2014 at 11:51 pm #240674
Check out hilti grinders you may be surprised. Usually they will let you demo tools.December 27, 2014 at 8:05 pm #242451
I have the ryobi one+ and barely used it. The few times I had, I used the wire brush for cleaning up some rust.
I am not a pro. But I play one at home.

That’s a very good question! Grinding out mortar continuously can be really tough on the grinder.

I would think for continuous grinding a corded tool would be best. Cordless offers convenience, but for static continuous use corded tools will still be necessary.
