Agree, grinders are air hogs. Ever think of usings electric grinder? I got rid of all my pneumatic sanders and grinders. Use electric instead. Use a dimmer switch and a receptical to make grinders variable speed. Electric grinders and sanders us way less electricity.

Thats a good point, a 600 watt grinder is about equal to an air grinder that needs a 3500 watt compressor running non stop

I'm a fan of dewalt tools. Close enough to John Deere yellow. I have three 4.5in dewalt right angle grinders. The biggest ones use 10 amps, 120v, 1200 watts. A 6.5 hp air compressor is going to use way more than 1200 watts. I can't stop my grinders. I have a wire brush on one, a metal cutting disk on another and a grinding disk on the other. I use the dimmer switch on the wire brush. The grinder can do serious damage if it gets away from you. Will never go back to pneumatic tools. Don't leave home without my grinders.
