Surely you do not have a 1" drain riser?

In that small, constrained area you can make that deck mud/dry/pack/mortar bed as thick as you need it to be if you pack it well on the way up.

What Goldstein said about the 4" to 4 1/2" grinders is true also for 4 1/2" to 5" grinders from at least one manufacturer (Makita). Same tool, different guard.

My opinion; worth price charged.

1. You can safely do the thicker mud bed in that application and with no reinforcing mesh. See my warranty information below.

You should not. If you'll go to the manufacturer's website you'll find installation instructions showing the required thinset mortar to be used.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I would recommend you use KDAT, Dan, if you can find it. That's Kiln Dried After Treatment. Gives you the moisture protection without the serious shrinkage and warpage of regular treated wood.
