Customer Questions & Answers

Why does the Blaine store, on Northtown Dr, have the older model only for sale at the 99.00 price?

In this particular store, they didnt have any of this model listed for 99.00
Asked by: ShopperCity
For one, this is the newer model. It says I need plain writing "brushless motor". Less friction, more power, less battery wear = happy consumer. But if u don't want to spend the extra $29.00, Home Depot also has the older model 18v version for $99. Inevitably, you will spend more than the difference on new batteries. Not to mention Time and money to charge the battery more often. pacific

18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless 4-1/2 in. Cordless Cut-Off/Angle Grinder (Tool-Only) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.

Makita recently changed their batteries and they did it discretely meaning a number of tools from your Makita LXT family cannot interchange batteries anymore. I complained about this Makita and they told me I was wrong despite photographic evidence of my existing batteries compared to the new batteries and photos of the store packaging that did not highlight any change or compatibility issue. This became the last Makita tool I ever bought and I encourage you to follow suit. They outright lied to me and basically told me to take a hike. All they needed to of done was acknowledge my issue and I'd have been happy instead they treated me as they did. I sent them 4 letters on the issue, they ignored 3 of them. Support, tool compatibility and customer relations evidently isn't their strong suit. This is a perfect example of how easy it is to loose a loyal customer. I know this review is supposed to be only of the grinder, but the battery is a big part of that and it is important to understand the problematic big picture (particularly since you will have to buy a battery - aka batteries not included.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cabinet installers review The tool would be perfect if I only used it for less than 8 minutes with a 18 volt battery. Maybe a 4 or 5 sized battery would give it 20 minutes or al little more. For continuous use get a corded one. I love makita tools but the negative reviews on battery life is exactly what I experienced.
