Makita's 1/4 in. SJS Die Grinder combines 6.6 amps of power with ergonomic comfort and motor-protection features for long-lasting grinding performance. It's engineered with Makita’s innovative Super Joint System (SJS) technology to protect the motor from gear damage by allowing the drive shaft to slip if the wheel is forced to stop. The electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load. Smart, labyrinth-style construction seals and protects the grinder's motor and bearings from dust and debris for a longer tool life.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for metal work The die grinder is a large investment in the future for me. I've had good experience with Makita in the past and felt confident purchasing the SJS die grinder. I expect to put it to good use. November 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita Die Grinder This is a solid heavy duty tool with lots of power. The slide switch is a little hard to release and turn off with a gloved hand. January 22, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product This thing is great for multiple jobs. Makita to me is second to none. Built in Japan, unlike most other tools including Dewalt and Milwaukee. Kobalt is a joke and would never buy Anything made by Kobalt. I still buy Husky but as far as top tools. MAKITA all the way. February 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very smooth operating tool. This is my very first Makita tool and my first die grinder. The quality and performance of this tool has exceeded my expectations. November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A little expensive but a good value. I like the variable speed and lighter weight. I have small hands so the small grip with side handle helps greatly to control the grinder. A must for inside corner weld grinding. November 15, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by All the features we needed when using a Die Grinder I find it very usefull to have a variable speed controll, it allows for more controll of material removal. October 5, 2012
