Just received it on Saturday. It is a bit heavy with the 6.0 battery but the size is not completely unreasonable. The size is still very manageable for cleaning wheel hubs and oil pans/timing covers (off car). The size could be a bit problematic for cleaning certain engine surfaces without engine removal, but we will see. Here is a video of it running on speed 4: https://youtu.be/XgSQcNiepyI

Fuel refers to Milwaukee's line of brushless motor tools

I prefer this particular form factor.

They don't make an in-line one like the pneumatic ones. The make one that is essentially a battery powered Dremel and one that is a large die grinder based on a regular angle grinder. I just ordered one of these for work.

For buffing/sanding.....90° works best, Whether it be "Cookies", 3M Green, or Roloc bristle . When using a Carbide Burr or a cut-off wheel, I like inline better....But these 2 work better with an air tool anyway.

I just got mine today and noticed in the instructions that there is a picture of an inline version and a part number. 2486-20 is the part number but it doesnt come up anywhere.

Been using it for cleaning hub flanges during a brake job. It performs very similarly to a pneumatic one. No issues with power or ergonomics.

This has been on my want list since I saw all the promos for it pop up at their Milwaukee new tool expo. Acme tools has a 10% off deal thru tomorrow. Debating if I want to get it now, or wail for any black friday promo's.
