What is important to know when buying a grinder with 5/8 arbor size vs 1 arbor size?

Asked by: Cs
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.

can you use this to grind off thinset

I've pulled up some tile in my master bath and have tried getting the thinset off with an air hammer, it got most of it off but I need it down to bare concrete in order to acid stain. Will this tool do that?
Asked by: sarah
No I recommend you cutting that with a router

7.5 Amp 4-1/2 in. Corded Paddle Switch Grinder with Aluminum Case, Diamond Blade and Grinding Wheels is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 81.

Bought this Grinder because I work with metal a lot and always borrowing from somebody else. Used it the day it was delivered to cut away bolt studs with stripped heads that were basically rusted on. Had to buy thinner blade because the ones it came with are like 3/8 thickness which makes it tougher to cut through metal. Was impressed with performance and the carrying case that the grinder came with. There is one thing that I should mention, when using a grinder make sure you have safety glasses when cutting metal it throws burrs and you want to definitely protect your eye's...

I originally bought this grinder to help with a custom steel bumper install on my truck because I didn't think my old pneumatic cut off tool/grinder would do the job and this grinder has already came in handy for a few other projects as well. I did have to buy a small metal cut off wheel to go with the kit which was no big deal considering everything that came in the case. As with any makita tool I own this machine has the right amount of power and is a steal for what you get in the kit. The adjustable handle and guard are also a big plus. I haven't had a chance to use the diamond blade yet but I have some blocks to cut on an upcoming landscaping project and I have no doubts the tool and blade will do the job well. Do yourself a favor and add this set to your tool arsenal, you'll be glad you did, I know I am.

The first grinder came in a case that was damaged. When the second grinder arrived, I decided to use the diamond wheel. The wheel kept chucking and the blade stopping. When I went to remove the diamond wheel, the lock nut would not come off although I managed to seriously bang up my finger in the process. Both grinders were returned and I will be looking for a different brand.

Great Tools I will take a chance on this one I have some Makita tools for about 30 years that still work like new I expect this one will work great also. I love the case well worth a few extra bucks it keeps every thing you need in one spot no hunting all over for a part. I always try to buy Makita tools my opinion best buy for the money you do get what you pay for.

But it has held up better than the 7.0Amp DeWalt I owned previously. The only feature i miss is the easy adjustable guard found on Dewalt and Rigid grinders. The Makita requires me to loosen an screw to change the angle of the guard.

Has performed as expected. Used so far for cutting back metal roofing over gutter, cutting brackets to size for hanging new garage door opener and cutting rusted metal shelving to be replaced. More projects on the list.

I bought this for my son-in-law because I have one that I am very happy with . I use it to cut steel, tile, grind stone and steel, and carve wood with a chainsaw blade. It also is excellent for cutting and shaping tiles.
