Anyone have the grinder and can comment on it? Typical sale price or is this lower than normal?

I have it. I think it works really well for most tasks using a cut off wheel or grinding disk.
I would not use it for concrete with a diamond cup wheel (I use an 11A corded model and that seems to be it's limit). I would say the m18 fuel grinder is equivalent to an 8-9A corded model but much more versatile.
I recommend it.

Also wanting to know if this is a good price on the grinder, I of course do not need yet another charger, but the battery is useful and the bag is worth 6$ to me.

SO... Wondering if this is a good value.

I would think the Grinder can be found usually for about 114$ and the battery is worth about 70$?

So this is probably mediocre? I welcome correction.

I think the grinder your referencing is the non brush-less version.
This one is on sale (bare tool) for $140 right now (I think I've seen it lower, but i haven't found it yet). You can probably get it lower if bought in store and return the battery (it seems to be a regular deal), but i don't know if that deal is live right now.

This one takes you to $126 bare tool.

Well your second link there has a free battery so, that is kinda what i was thinking would be a slickdeal. If that second link price was valid at home depot, I would bite. I think this price today is too high.

I bought the grinder last year, tool only, for 115, so if you value the battery at about 50 it's a decent price.

I used it to cut off some iron window bars, was nice not having cords
