Thanked.
Would appreciate any leads for 4.5" cut off and other disc-packs on sale. I bought the Ryobi grinder with free battery promo and looking for some discs.

While this is a good price, the regular price is way inflated. HD regularly has a 2-pack of Ryobi for around this price IIRC.

Something I've learned from my cordless angle grinder is that wired is WAY better - cordless eats through batteries like there is no tomorrow on harder materials.

CT regularly puts discs on sale. The pack contains a few masonry and the rest are metal. Think they run 20$

Just need a better unit. We have a DeWalt 60v angle grinder and it's great. Saves dragging a cord out all the time. I also have corded for when I'm near power.

these units are rated 6A. I saw higher amperage units - do they have more power. I need these to cut through gyproc or wood. Do i need more than 6A for light duty jobs like wood (usually don't touch metals)

To reduce blade changing when working with multiple materials. One for metal, one for masonry for example.

When you're doing demolition, you'll often need to cut through both metal and masonry, but the discs get hot and you'll need to wait for them to cool down before switching discs. Because the tools are so cheap anyway, it's easier to just have multiple ones with different discs and thus not waste time switching discs.

I've seen pro photographers at events like weddings with multiple cameras with different lenses for the same reason. If they had just one camera back, they'll waste time switching between telephoto and wide, etc.

Metal fabrication work is why. One with a cut off disc, one with a coarse grind disc, another with a flap disc.
These grinders are definitely not the nicest to work with, but if one shits the bed, or you splatter the housing in welding slag, no big deal.
