Milwaukee is releasing a new M18 cordless angle grinder (model 2686) that features a brushless motor, adjustable guard, and electronic clutch for kickback protection and is compatible with 4-1/2″ and 5″ wheels. The grinder operates at 11,000 RPM and has a paddle switch.

The Milwaukee angle grinder is fully compatible with the most popular grinder accessories and comes with a 5/8-11 spindle that works with 4-1/2″ wheels out of the box.
