10.5 Amp 5 in. SJS Angle Grinder is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty poor design features. Same old trigger that goes out... Pretty poor design features. Same old trigger that goes out in the first year. Spark guard can't be moved more than 1/8 of a turn without getting jammed between the housing and can't be pulled off without tools. Only has a one year warranty compared to 3 & 5 year warranties from competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and fun to use I don't need to say anything about the Makita brand. I own a ton of their tools for a reason. No exception in this case. I'm not a professional, just an active DIY-er and I find myself reaching for this tool often. This thing has come in handy in ways I hadn't expected. I've used it to cut small pathway stones in my backyard (worked surprisingly well, though worth nothing they were quite thin). It also ground out rusted screws in an old metal fence I was replacing, and removed rust from my outdoor metal water feature. I saw other reviewers used it to sharpen garden tools and shears (so obviously I immediately did the same). I'll admit it works so well and so flawlessly that sometimes look for reasons to use it. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grinder My only disappointment is that it doesnt run without holding the trigger . Otherwise its a 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Purchased the grinder at a very good special sticker price. Got it out of the box and affixed the necessary parts. Then I sharpened and balanced blades for the lawnmower, which I had purchased at Home Depot a few years ago. Thoroughly satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Sharpening MyTools I opened the box, installed the Guard and Grinding Wheel and was ready to go sharpen some of my tools. Because this is the first time I have used an electric grinder, I choose to sharpen a garden shovel and pruning shears, shown in the attached photo's. The grinder has a lot of power and did the job I had hoped for. I like the option of being able to attach the Tool Handle to either side of the grinder, although I don't see me switching sides. The guard kept me safe from a possible shattering of the wheel and it also helped keep the sparks away from my body. The grinder is rated at 11,000 RPM's so you want to make sure you use a grinding wheel that is made for those RPM's. The wheel that comes with the grinder is a Type 27 36-grit INOX Depressed Center Grinding Wheel.that can be used on steel and stainless steel. The directions warn you when using a depressed center wheel to only use fiberglass-reinforced wheels. This grinder only weighs 5.9 lbs., which helps make it easy to operate and control. The instructions were easy to understand. The guard and abrasive wheel were easy to install. I am looking forward to using this grinder on other tools and projects. I do recommend the Makita 10.5 amp SJS Angle Grinder, Model # GA5020.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grinder Makita 10.5 Angle Grinder This Makita tool was built to take punishment grinding. The long handle and extra handle that can be placed on the right or left, adds stability while grinding. I used the grinder to cut thru old bed rails while building a special shelf design. The protective shield helps direct away the sparks and small bits of metal. Using the right cutting wheel helps get the job done right. The grinder has quiet a bit of torque so when you turn it on, hang on to it. It will get away from you if you are not hanging on. The grinder is not to heavy but it does tire you out after a long days use. That is the only drawback I could find. The off on trigger is in the long handle and makes it easy to control. I really like this piece of equipment. This Makita tool was built to the same standard all Makita tools are built to and that is a real Plus. As Always Be Safe Using This Tool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good strong motor Easy to change out grinding wheel. The guard is easy to loosen and turn and tighten up again. The weight seems about the same as the one I had before. Nice strong motor to be able to put some pressure on the grinder to make it more aggressive at grinding and doesn't slow down. Nice addition to my workshop. Only thing I wish it had was a case of some kind to keep everything together. Still worth having. Great tool.
