Answer: 
Based upon Makita Team's answer - the specs for the arbor size of 1" must be wrong since they say that all Makita grinders have a 5/8 arbor. Home Depot please update the specs.

Answer: 
All Makita right angle grinders have a 5/8"-11 threaded arbor which means that you will need a 5/8"-11 threaded hub when using hubbed wheel and 7/8" non-threaded when using a depressed center wheel. Depressed center wheels are installed on the grinder with a flange. All this information is provided in the instruction manual.

Answer: 
The arbor size will depict the size of nut on the grinding wheel you buy for the grinder. For example I have a grinder with a 5/8-11 arbor that tells me when I buy wheels that thread on my arbor I can fit wheels with a 5/8-11 nut built into the wheel or a disk that has a 5/8 hole in the center with the use of supplied jam nut to hold disk in place

Once to cut down and then cut up an old steel square-section basketball backboard post and also to sharpen a couple of lawn mower blades. I have been very satisfied with the way this product has performed.

Coming from Makita, I expected it would would be high quality, and it doesn't disappoint. The one thing I wished it had was a third position for the handle, on the top. My previous Milwaukee grinder had that, and I did use it. The price with the case and wheels is a great value Too bad it's online only, but ground shipping was pretty quick.

Good Value for a Very Nice Grinder Kit To be honest, I haven't yet actually used this grinder. I bought it during a major bathroom remodeling job after watching many videos on YouTube about how to cut and install ceramic tiles. Several of the professional tile installers used this same model grinder to cut holes in the tile for shower plumbing. Since I had only round holes to drill for my remodelig job, I used diamond-coated hole saws to drill the holes I needed. There were many cheaper grinders to choose from, but this Makita seemed to represent a good value for the money in that it includes a very nice aluminum case and and assortment of grinding wheels as well as a diamond blade. I have a couple air-powered die grinders that I've tried to use for various projects, but they always seemed rather awkward and uncontrollable. I decided an electric frinder like this would make a better addition to my tool set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, powerful, and easy to use I bought this to use the diamond blade to cut concrete blocks that contain glass, metal and other misc bits for art pieces. It works great. I'm still using the diamond blade after 3 months of weekly use. I'll probably buy one so I have have one for grinding and one for cutting.

Grinder is powerful--I used it with a diamond grinding wheel to grind cement and it didn't bog down at all. This kit is a great value buy considering all that is included. The case is especially nice with foam padding to hold everything in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and easy Bought this to make a few cuts. This tool is very user friendly. My only complaint is that the trigger doesn't stay on if you let it go. Unlike my last Makita grinder which had a switch. Other than that, it's an amazing tool.
