Why User manual says: "NEVER attach Type 1 straight or cut off disk to this angle grinder"?

I tried Type1 1/16 cut-off disk. It was easy to attached and the grinder worked well.

Thank you for choosing RIDGID. This grinder is not designed to use cutting disks. The disks will be thinner and not safe to use on the grinder.

The Type 1 disks fit OK to this Grinder - seems to me.

Thank you for choosing RIDGID. This grinder is not designed to use a cutting disc. The disks are too thin and will not tighten down properly on the unit.
