Default What size of angle grinder(disk) do you use? (Plumbing)

Hello. I'm in dilemma. Doing some research before I buy my first grinder. She said that size doesn't matter, but I'm concerned Thinking about Bosch or Makita. Any suggestions?

For a hand held I use a 4-1/2", seems discs are more available than a 4". For my work I use a 14" but then again my small pipe is 4"

And my battery powered Milwaukee is not NEARLY as powerful as my corded Milwaukee, even though my corded Milwaukee is the cheaper, smaller model. Definitely get one with a cord, cheaper and more powerful.

thanx Sir. That's what I'm going to buy. Plus, no need extra expanses for new batteries in a long run.

I totally agree, get a corded Milwaukee. But be careful. Milwaukee now makes a cheaper grinder. Spend the extra bucks and get the good one. I have 3 of them one is over 10 years old. Parts if ever needed at easy to get.
