Summary: I guess I've had it for 9 months. I haven't used it tons, but I did have to cut some 1/2" plate into many pieces, as well 14" ductile iron pipe. (1x 330 lb double mailbox and 1x 170 lb 3 unit mailbox..
Summary: This is a powerful and rugged grinder. Even though it is a Japanese company this is made in Georgia USA! There is no other grinder made in the USA anymore and coupled with the proven Makita brand it was a no brainer. Highly recommend
Summary: Nice but very heavy for continued hours of use. Lots of power too. But the weight is a killer for me. So I bought the Ridgid R20102 instead at 8# that's 4# less weight, yea it was almost as expensive but you can't beat life time service, especially for this kind of tool.
