I have a ryobi 6" works well for i would say 90% of my sanding.... though for stripping decks of 60 years worth of paint, I break out my big 10" floor sander and 18grit sandpaper

I am thinking about getting a bigger grinder.
Good idea
Does anybody like bigger size grinders?
I do
How come?
They cut stuff
What do you use them for?
Cutting stuff, mostly.
I usually have two 4.5's and a 7" in my truck. Sometimes the body of the little grinders gets in the way of a cut. The 7" goes through stone, tile and concrete a whole lot faster. Floor grinding is also easier with a 7".

They had three 7" grinders at Lowes on clearance for under $100. I'm really proud of myself for only buying one.

I use a 7" for general cable tray work with combo grinding and cutting discs. I should buy the M18 Fuel Grinder...

Don't you find those blades slow to cut?

I use my 4.5" to chamfer the cuts and a 14" chop to make the cuts.

What brand of cable tray do ya use in NZ?

Not sure we buy it from the same place that sells all the iron and rebar to the builders, I have use cablofil and other brand name basket trays in data centres but this stuff isnt branded. Using basket for the data, tray for power and ally ladder for the submains on this job.
