just worry the lengthy drain of battery will shorten the battery life cycle counts.

The Milwaukee batteries protect themselves against this problem, I've been very impressed with all my Milwaukee tools. I think I might have to look at this in more detail as I would only need a bare tool

I am in the building trade and in recent years most types of power tool has become available in battery powered. The only tools that I own that are battery are just a pair of drill drivers these will last all day on a full charge no problem. most of the other battery tools require a lot of power to maintain a constant performance and the tool mentioned will be very power hungry and soon slow down after just 10 minutes I would much sooner plug a mains powered polisher in once use it on a job knowing it will not slow down and start to under perform after all a polisher is all about have constant speed to perform well.

Milwaukee 18v polisher

^^agree.

Cordless tools now are fantastic but any that need constant power at high speed and torque just don’t get the run time.

Maybe in another 10 years.

Handy maybe if you are the sort of person that needs an emergency swirl removal while camping.

Everyone else can just use a socket when they get home.
