What grinder needed for a shrinking disc

What model of grinder do I need? I see that milwaukee makes several grinders. Does it depend on the type of shrinking disc, Ive decided to go with the disc offered by John Kelley
Model 6086 is a 7-9in with 15amp, 4.0hp and 6000rpm
Also make a 7in model with 15amps and 5000rpm

Am leaning towards the 6086, Ive searched past posts and found nothing. Thanks...Eric

Grinders

Milwaukee makes good tools..I think I would lean toward the 7-9 in model myself..can't have too much power if you are doing any serious metal mowing..should run the shrinking disc just fine..

The 6086 is the one you want. 6000 rpm is recommended.

Yes, the bigger the better, but you can shrink with a 3400 rpm sander/polisher...just takes longer to build up the heat. The upside with a smaller unit is that it is cheaper and lighter weight...those big Milwaukees are heavy!
