Jeff, I use a 7in diamond wheel on a DeWalt 7 in grinder. Also have a dust collector collar attached to my shop vac to hold down the dust.

It works very good as until the filter plugs.

Bosch makes a concrete grinder that controls so much dust you will be hard pressed to believe your are grinding concrete Runs under $400 from amazon.

The last floor I had to grind was a 250sg that was the worst I had run across . leveler alone would have put me 3/4 above the exterior door before tile so it was a grind and fill . With this floor (clean freaks in a finished kitchen ) I rented a dust collector from the depo and was real impressed . It had two switches on it and with both going you just about had to lift the grinder off the floor the suction was so good . Saved ware on my shopvack and all of my plastic was so clean I can reuse it . The price of the plastic was greater then the rental . For anything more than a few humps or a small bathroom I will do it again .

I've got a 7" Milwaukee, but I've had major problems with the dust collection shroud. The last one I got was called the "Dustie" (I think) off e-bay and it fell apart right away. Plus my shop vac filter clogs all the time and I never realize it until it's too late.

Maybe I need to invest in some of the products that have been listed...

I've got this one and it works really well till the shop vac filters clog... seems there's a pattern here.

They sell the shroud seperately. It has a flip up edge for getting next to walls.
