A review of a Makita angle grinder

In 1915, Makita Corporation began as a company that repaired and sold electric motors. In 1938, the company became Makita Electric Works and became the first Japanese company to market as well as manufacture electric planers as well as other power tools in 1958. It soon gained a reputation for reliable and reasonably priced tools. The angle grinder, which Makita introduced in 2005, was an example of this. Today, it remains a useful tool for the handyman to the commercial builder.

Design

The Makita angle grinder is deceptively small and light - seemingly too light to do the job required of it. However, its small size is a boon in that it allows you to hold it securely and comfortably in your hand. Since grinding is exacting work, being able to have complete control over one's tool without the fear of dropping it is a must. If you need an extra grip, an auxiliary handle can be attached to the barrel, allowing you to use both hands. The smaller size allows you to get into tight corners while the head can be adjusted into two positions, increasing its versatility. The tool's motor as well as the bearings are sealed inside a protective covering - a detail which helps to keep metal and wood shavings from entering the compartment and shortening the life of the tool. The Makita angle grider comes in sizes ranging from four to nine inches.

Motor and other details

The Makita angle grinder tools come with a range of motors: from 6 amp for the 4 inch to 4 1/2 inch grinders to 7.5 amp for the 4 1/2 inch to 5 inch grinder to 9 to 15.5 amp for the larger grinders. The motor is capable of varying speed ranging from 2800 to 10500 rpm which allows for added control. When you buy a Makita angle grinder, it comes standard with a grinding wheel, a wheel guard, a lock nut and lock nut wrench, a side handle, and inner flange. Some of the angle grinders come with Makita tool bags or power tool cases. The Makita batteries are long-lasting and can be recharged for future use.
Note: When the battery wears out, make sure you bring it to the proper location where it can be recycled.
