Review: Ridgid - R1001 Motor Field
It didn't last long for what little I used it. I thought it was the brushes at first but it seems to be the motor field shorted out. I only used it on floor tiles and it got hot. I cleaned the grinder after each use with an air blower. The field seems to have melted or the armature. I don't know if anyone else has had this problem.
