Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by light weight and easy to use I purchased the Makita Die Grinder to use for detail work on my chain saw carving hobby. My hope was that the Makita Die Grinder would help with detailing the facial features on my carvings. The Makita Die Grinder did not disappoint me, works as advertised. Quiet operation, light weight, easy to handle and a really nice feature is the rubberized nose for gripping. I would definitely recommend the Makita brand to a friend. April 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Works as advertised Works as advertised, seems to vibrate more than I would think and noisy with no-load. It levels out when load is applied. July 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Might Be Hard to Beat This grinder surprised me for how smooth and quiet running it is, is a dandy. It doesn't have the usual scream that most all DC brush type motors have. I would ask, "how'd they do that?" Using a new 3/8" dia carbide bit, this little grinder will hog metal like you wouldn't believe, did a 3 hr job in 1 hr. I'm not sure I like the feature of the air blowing out of the front of the grinder. I got a lot of messy blow back that I didn't get w/ my elcheepo $19 grinder that broke. This is the only thing that I can give a negative comment on. April 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good tool, quiet, but works hard I really enjoy this tool. It is quiet, but rugged. May 13, 2014
