Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billbobricker Good portable Grinder
Bought this grinder for getting stuff off cars at the junkyard. I have a corded version that I use for at home use that is a very cheap brand but I wanted the good stuff when it comes to cordless. I haven't been to the junkyard yet but just as a test I used this to cut off some seized up sway bar end link bolts on a GMC Envoy. These bolts were inside of bushings that I had to cut through that were very sticky but the overload protection helped to prevent the tool from catching and kicking back at me. Cut the bolts like it was nothing and the 4.0AH battery still showed the full charge. Good ergonomic design and it looks good to boot. The included wheel however was only good for one bolt before it got really chowdered and started coming apart. Can't wait to take this to the junkyard and give it some use.

Hard to beat Makita power tools. Super handy when you need to cut that one piece of metal.

Awful ! ! ! - So NOT ready for Prime Time
I like my other Makita Tools and this one is literally useless as a grinder...
Perhaps it would do OK with a Flap wheel or wire brush or something and even the lightest tap with a cut-off wheel had the overload trip and red lights flash necessitating the power switch be cycled OFF and then ON to get to reactivate until the next overload of this wimpy "tool".
I will try the Makita Brushless version of their grinder next to see if it is ready for prime time.

This is a great way to get a gift to my daughter without the shipping charges or the worry that it would get stolen from the front porch if she was not home. She is a set designer/builder in Hollywood and wanted one for her birthday. She is delighted with the grinder. Two of the last 3 items I have sent her have been stolen. I will use this service again.

when you need to cut off a rusty bolt or cut a piece of steel off in a tight spot when you can't plug in a cord no place , it's the handiest tool to have around !
