Lowest price ... more specifically it's about $14 off the 6 month average. Not sure how accurate the average is, though, because the item doesn't remain in stock for more than a few hours even at the higher price.

Per the reviews....brushless. More power and longer run time on the batteries for the brushless.

Yeah. Normally, I've been buying the brushless versions of all the tools (unless a brushless version isnt made), but I use a grinder so infrequently and for such a short period of time per use, I'm not sure it'll make much difference.
Pondering...

This ones trigger is so much better than the brushless one. Get this one especially if you don't use it often. You'll thank me later. I hate the trigger on the brushless and wish I wouldn't of gotten rid of my brushed one.

Definitely not the lowest price. I picked it up, S&S by Amazon, for $66.79 about a year ago.

Any additional discount that doesn't show up in the buy box (ex. subscribe and save or non-digital monetary compensation for slow shipping) would also not be reflected in the price history. Also, like I mentioned about the average, I'm not sure how accurate the history is because it goes out of stock shortly after being restocked a majority of the time since Nov. 2017. The price history I'm looking at is attached with arrows showing the blips in which stock is available.

Nope, no extra discounts, was the buy box price. Also Shipped and Sold, not subscribe and save. Sorry, didn't think of that one.

See the attached in the previous post. Sometimes prices that are available for a short period of time come and go before the tracking service has a chance to sample it.

The DCG413 has noticeably more power than the 412, lasts longer on the same battery amp and can be found now and then for $100 and dropping because the 60 volt DCG414B has even more power at the equivalent of 13 amps/115v.

The plus for this lower powered DCG412, at least for me, is that it is a trigger switch and the 413 is a paddle switch. The newer 60 volt 414 is also a trigger switch and comes with 4-1/2" and 6" guards. I just feel more comfortable with a trigger switch, but obviously, others like the paddle switch. With at least 50 20volt batteries around here, we are slowly upgrading to the 20/60 volt batteries and when our 413's quit, it will be the 414's that replace.

Personally, I think the jury is still out on older brushless models because there is a lot going on with the technology that does not tolerate much abuse. At this moment, once out of warranty, they are mostly throwaway when they quit, because the parts, shipping and even labor costs as much as a new tool.

That's a good point that a lot of people don't consider on the brushless tools. Their motor/trigger/brain unit are all a single unit and when one part goes out it's cheaper just to replace the whole unit. One of my brushless impact drivers started acting intermittent in the trigger and the replacement was $120 for the part or you could buy the bare tool for around $110.
