Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by makita 18v angle grinder be ready to have problems with the old batteries that you have. Makita was rude when I called them and said there is no difference. but there is. a small metal tab on the grinder blocks the old batteries from sliding on. the tab according to Makita does not exist. but it does. I checked several at Home Depot and they all had one. Try it before you buy it. once I figured out how to bypass it the tool works well May 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great grinder-- 3 minutes, my butt! Among imitators in the cordless "grinder" game, this is the king! Most other cordless "grinders" are actually called cut-off tools, because they don't spin fast enough to be considered or marketed as a grinder. 10,000 rpm is the real deal--just as fast as most electric 4 1/2" grinders! For such a reasonable price, I wasn't expecting a lot, but I was pleasantly surprised by this unit. Not only does it have the high speed I like, it has a rubberized handle that is very comfortable, access to the brushes for maintenance, and overload protection, which keeps the motor from burning up from the user pushing too hard (great for those guys who think you have to put all your weight down on a grinder, when all that does is slow down the wheel and reduce performance). As far as the 1-star review that said it only gives 3 minutes of run-time, I don't know what they're talking about. I've cut plenty of stuff with this and never had a complaint. If you expect all-day use, get an electric. I guarantee this will run longer than just about any other full-speed cordless grinder, and cost a heck of a lot less! October 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cordless grinder Makita never fails to provide the best products available. This grinder works great February 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 18v bare tool grinder It is good for quick jobs, but if you have a lot of grinding to do it is better using a corded tool. January 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase I bought this about a year ago, when I got it home I had several projects to use it on. I was extremely impressed with this little tool but I wanted to use it for a while before writing a review. This little tool will do the work, I use the 4 1/2 cutting wheel regularly and it will cut through 1/4 plate no problem. I also use a buffing wheel and a grinding wheel on this tool. The tool has handled everything I have thrown at it with ease, all the while the battery just keeps on going... January 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best deal for my circumstances I purchased this tool because I have compatible batteries, it has the highest RPM in its cordless class for faster cuts, and comes with a cut-off plus grinder wheel. All this in addition to Makita's already awesome could I or anyone else with compatible batteries go wrong? I'd say it's even worth buying with the battery if no compatibles are available. Have fun!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a superior tool I have been switching over from milwaukee to makita because the makita battery lasts so long. I charge mine, put it on the truck, use it once or twice, let it sit for a month, come back and pick it up, and the tool runs full steam. dont know what this guy below is talking about 3 minutes. this is the best cordless set up out there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase Ever! Don't know what I did without this tool! I use it on almost every job! August 19, 2014
