came here to ask the same question.

assumed it's because these are cheap and break easily, but was surprised by the other responses (blade changes/different blades, battery charging)

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

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.

The answers about attachment changes and work flow are the correct ones.
A serious DIYer/fabricator/welder would use multiple with different attachments.
Grab one, and grind.
Grab the other with a wire brush to clean up.
On to the next.
No attachment changes.

Not everyone is someone that pulls out a tool for occasional use.
Some go back and forth within minutes, or less.

For those asking about why you need two...odds are you don't need one.

If you're using a masonry disk, you will probably need two units...

Brossard, Qc
I ordered yesterday and today the order was cancelled because the product is "no longer available"

In the Brossard store I just saw one grinder same rating at $49.99 instead of 2!

I wonder whether this was false advertising. Anybody in RFD successfully bought one?

Edit: went to a nearby store (Greenfield Park) which showed 3 in-store stock and grabbed the last one for $49.99. Funny that my on line order for free pickup at another store which showed in store stock of 2 got cancelled because product was not available. I found Canadian Tire on line website is very backwards and lacks the transparency and efficiency of other online vendors.

how does one use a grinder to cut drywall?
seems so violent for a job that a box cutter can do.

I've never heard of someone using an angle grinder on drywall. An oscillating tool can make really precise cuts in drywall for switch holes, etc.
