And another thing i havnt done yet but already bought the stuff for is switch everything over to twist lock... the reason for that is to keep the cord short. With a short cord 2' or less you dont have to wrap it up, and with a standard plug you will have to tie a knot which will get in the way while your using it...u following me so far? I think the reason your cords break at the grinder is because of the way it has to get wrapped up. It usually pulls the cord tight at the grinder.
I like swivel whip hoses on my air tools to be 4' long so the connection doesn't get caught on anything under the hood. I would think 2' is right there in the way, just my opinion of course .
