It worked great for about 5 minutes then began smoking and died

  • Summary: I was really looking forward to adding this grinder to my tool set. I've always trusted Makita and expected it to live up to its name. It worked great for about 5 minutes then began smoking and died. Very disappointing.

It deserves the good reviews, nice (medium) size

Critical Consumer, Amazon

  • Summary: This grinder deserves its excellent reviews. I am a welding instructor and this grinder is the most durable. Students don't treat tools carefully... the first thing that happens is they grind into the power cord, we replace it, sometimes several times.

GREAT DEAL!

Chas, Amazon

  • Summary: If it was used, I couldn't see it. I put it right to work. However, the little spanner wrench that normally comes with a grinder for changing the wheels wasn't with it. No worries, I had an old one.

Love the variable speed. Quality tool

Gary W. Lepak, Amazon
15 February 2015
  • Summary: I have been using 4 1`/2" grinders for about 30 or 40 years. I'm 72. I've always had the one speed 10,000 rpm ones and used 5" discs with them. I do mostly small boat building and use them for wood shaping, but also sometimes for metal or concrete work.

Nice Buy for What I Needed it For

Greg, Amazon
9 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought the package that includes the storage case. In addition to the case, it comes with a diamond cutting wheel and four grinding wheels. I believe the tool only option does not include the case, the diamond cutting wheel, and only comes with one grinding wheel.

the speed control is better and the soft start is easier on the wrist ...

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: This replaced a Milwaukee that I had for (good god) twenty years, the speed control is better and the soft start is easier on the wrist for one hand use. It seems to have plenty of poop using a cutoff wheel, every bit as good as the old Mil.
