    I am looking to buy a multi material compact cut off tool like the Milwaukee 2522-20. Comes with diamond blade, carbide blade, metal blade, with a show and vac adapter. Since I mostly have to be tetered to a vac, then I really don’t need it to be cordless, so even corded is ok.

    Does Bosch makes a similar product?

    Who else makes one that is worth considering? It’s really a re-purposed grinder.

    (1) M12 FUEL™ 3″ Compact Cut Off Tool (tool only) (2522-20)

    So the purpose for this compact tool is strictly to cut tiles and plaster with less weight, depth control and dust control.

    Seem to be finding myself having to cut through 1″ thick plaster metal lath on ceiling on a few projects lately. I used an angle grinder but dislike the stupid cutting shrouds.

    I bought a “universal shroud” and didn’t like it. Thought about getting either a Bosch shroud and a new Bosch grinder the shroud is made for…but then I saw these compact cutoff tools by Rockwell, Milwaukee and other brands.

    They can be used like a 3″ angle grinder.

    They are lighter than a standard 4.5 or 5 inch grinder.

    They come with a cutting shroud built for it with hose adapters.

    They come with a shoe with depth control. It can cut up to 1.5″ which is more than what I need for tiles and plaster.

    It comes with a diamond, a carbide and a metal blade so it can be used to cut copper or galvanized pipes mounted on existing concrete walls.

    Also comes with a shroud which I hope will do a good job for dust collection.

    Yeah I wouldn’t get the Milwaukee if you are going to be cutting through 1” material. It doesn’t have that kind of capacity

    The bare tool Milwaukee is about $20 less than the Bosch. I’ll still get the Bosch as I have more batteries for it.

    After seeing your stories, I was hoping you’d weigh in.

    Yes I also found out that the Milwaukee can only cut up to 0.6″ maximum depth of cut.

    Although I have not been able to confirm or not whether that maximum depth is when the guide shoe with dust extractor port is attached, and if the shoe is off whether you get more depth out of it or not. That seems unclear.
