This Makita 5 in. SJS Angle Grinder combines 12 amp variable speed power in a lightweight design with motor-protection features for longer-lasting stone grinding and polishing 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. A 5-stage, variable speed dial lets you match RPMs to the application. Smart, labyrinth-style construction seals and protects the motor and bearings from dust and debris for a longer tool life. The grinder weighs just 4 lbs. and features a versatile side handle that can be installed on either side of the tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 So far so good! I bought the for the expressly for grinding and polishing some concrete countertops. I started by trying to do the work with a random orbital sander but it was way too slow. I went looking at wet polishers but the only ones in my price range were lesser name brands with questionable customer reviews. I settled on this Makita as I have had generally good luck with the brand, and it had the variable control feature which allowed for the slower speeds necessary for this particular job. It does not have the continuous water feed feature of tools made specifically for wet polishing, but it is no trouble keeping the surface wet with a bucket and sponge. The grinder worked very well with a diamond cup grinder to quickly expose aggregate . Although it also worked well with the diamond polishing pads, I did switch back to the random orbit sander for polishing as it was a bit quieter and allowed for one handed operation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT GRINDER Very powerful like veriable speed and it's very smooth December 9, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by stop working after 2 jobs machine stopped working after two jobs and had to reorder 2 more weeks till I receive it November 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bought for the variable speed to clean the slab in the batchroom First, I thought that I can clean the slab with a cheaper, one-speed angle grinder. At ~11,000 RPMs, they are all too fast for the wheel I needed to use (max 9,000 RPMs). Between brands, I picked Makita based on other's reviews. Time will tell.... April 15, 2014
