    Dewalt 60v grinder

    I thought it was kind of interesting someone made a 60v cordless grinder. I picked one up and man I wish I would have had this thing years ago. I put a 5" disc on it (barely cleared inside the 4.5" safety shield, but it comes with a 6" shield too) and I think it has more power than the corded Metabo 4.5 and 5 inch grinders we have in the shop. I was only able to ever get it to stall out once. The battery life isn't the greatest but if you get 2 batteries its no issue as the charger it comes with is insanely fast at charging batteries. The other bonus is the 60v battery can be used on most of their 20v series tools. I know for a fact it fits my vacuum, 1/2" drill and 1/4" impact nut driver. The charger is also backwards compatible with their 20v batteries. The convenience factor of this grinder is awesome especially on small jobs. Its also tooless wheel change which is nice

    The only downside of the battery is It's MAH rating is at 20 volts so it cuts it down by 2/3 when you run it a 60 volts. That why I would rather have a 40 volt.

    I bought one of them a couple months ago as well, absolutely love it! I was excited to see a cordless 6" grinder as we almost exclusively use 6" wheels in my shop, it is every bit as powerful as our corded DeWalt 6" grinders, maybe even a little more power and way smoother. Slightly large/heavy and the batteries don't last real long but for the quick stuff on a truck or somewhere across the shop from where you usually work it is amazing compared to dragging cords or the old 20V 4.5" grinder.
    I'll be looking to get some of the larger 9.0ah batteries (3.0ah on 60v) that dewalt offers once they come down a bit in price but until then I'll keep on grinding and charging the smaller batteries that came with it.
    One thing I've noticed is I can have better battery life keeping it spinning between cuts vs stopping and re-starting the wheel, I think it's due to the electric brake they added(nice feature) sucking a bit of power to stop the wheel and then the obvious power suck to get it back spinning again.

    Dewalt doesn't currently have a 40v grinder and it appears that their 40v batteries don't work on any other tool. Thats what's nice about their 60v system is you can still use that battery on multiple other tools and only have to have one charger for all your stuff. In a shop setting they work pretty good because your other battery will be charged by the time you run the other one out most of the time. But when you aren't using the grinder you can still use that 60v battery in your drills or impacts for extra long life.
