About This Product

The 40V Max XGT Brushless Cordless 4-1/2 in. / 5 in. Cut-Off/Angle Grinder with Electric Brake (GAG01Z, tool only) delivers corded grinding performance without the cord for the most demanding applications. It's powered by a Makita-built brushless motor which delivers 8,500 RPM for heavy-load applications and increased power and speed. The GAG01Z offers up to 60% faster cutting speed when cutting #5 (5/8 in.) rebar. It is ideal for grinding and cutting a wide range of materials including tile, concrete, pipe, conduit, and more. An electric current limiter helps protect the motor from overload in high-torque applications. Makita's exclusive Automatic Speed Change technology automatically adjusts speed and torque during operation for optimal performance. Additional features include an electric brake that stops the grinding or cut-off wheel in 2 seconds or less and Active Feedback-sensing Technology (AFT) that turns the motor off if rotation of the wheel is forced to a stop. A slide switch with lock-on is convenient, while quick guard rotation provides tool-less adjustments for increased productivity. Anti-restart protection is engineered to prevent motor start-up when the battery is inserted while the slide switch is locked on. A soft start suppresses start-up reaction and provides smooth start-ups.

Q:Will these batteries work with the Makita XAG04 LXT model ?
by|Sep 13, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for your question on the GAG01Z XGT grinder. No, the XGT max batteries are not compatible with the XAG04 cut-off angle grinder. Our 18V LXT tools are recommended to be used with 18V LXT batteries only. Please refer to your instruction's manual for other compatibility questions.

        Powerful and safe
        The power of this grinder saves effort and time. I was amazed at the difference between this and a smaller grinder I have used. High power might be considered more dangerous by some. I find that the power allows less effort and so allows me to concentrate more on safety. I let the grinder do the work while I watch the process for safety issues. The brake is a nice safety feature. The brake also saves me time. I don’t have to wait as long to set the grinder down and inspect the work more closely. The brake stops the grinding wheel even before the grinder is on the surface where I set it. I am very glad I have this grinder. It is great to be able to quickly and easily adjust the shield based on the angle of the grinder to the object. If I find too many sparks coming at me the shield can be rotated quickly to catch those sparks. The adjustment of the shield is quick and easy. Whether cutting conduit, cutting angle iron, grinding off bolts, cutting masonry, or cleaning up welds this grinder is a welcome addition to my tools.

        Well designed and easy to use.
        Makita GAG01 40 Volt Max XGT 4-1/2 - 5 inch Angle Grinder Kit with Electric Brake and (4.0Ah) Battery with Charger. This kit comes complete with a cordless angle grinder with an electric brake. In addition, this kit includes a DC40RA fast charger with 4.0Ah battery. Lastly, this kit includes a grinding wheel, capacitive nut tool, adjustable guard, and carrying bag. This angle grinder has a threaded housing for left hand and right hand handle operation. The switch on the angle grinder can be operated intermittently with a push upwards or continuously with a push up and a detent of the switch. The two features I like most about this angle grinder are 1) the electric brake, and 2) the adjustable guard. The guard locking mechanism is spring loaded and when depressed the guard can be rotated CW or CCW depending on working conditions. This angle grinder has a standard 5/8-11 arbor and accepts all 4-1/2 and 5 inch wheels and blades. The fast charger takes 28 minutes to charge the BL4025 and 45 minutes to charge the BL4040 battery. This is a great cordless angle grinder. I have used this angle grinder to debur frayed metal on my wheelbarrow and to clean the rusted parts of my gate with a surface cleaning disc. I am very happy with this kit. Mikita tools stand the test of time. I have a corded angle grinder I've been using for over 20 years and I expect this angle grinder will provide the same performance for many years to come. I highly recommend the Makita GAG01.40 volt max XGT 4-1/2 in. - 5 inch angle grinder kit with electric brake, 4.0Ah battery with charger and carrying bag.

        Wonderful tool to have!
        This angle grinder is my third Makita tool and I couldn’t be happier with it. This angle grinder came with everything needed to start grinding right away. I really like that it has adjustable positions for the wheel guard depending on your work need. The cushioned side grip can be used on either side of the grinder. One really nice feature is there is a slide switch to turn on the grinder that can be locked in place, so no trigger switch to keep depressed. Battery has an easy-to-read LED light bar to show charge level and there is ample run time on a fully charged battery. The supplied charger charges the battery quickly and also has status lights for charge level, battery condition etc.

        Absolute Unit
        I mostly use grinders for power carving (wood). This one is perfect because of the high 8500rpm spindle speed. I can get a really nice finish with the right disc. Aside from all the speed and power I'd ever need from a grinder, the ergonomics are great. It's soft start which I like, the electric brake stops the disc in under 2 seconds (really), and disc changes are pretty quick. Battery life has been good but I could definitely use another battery and if they offered a kit with two 40v batteries, I'd look into that. Overall I'm really happy with this and it fits all my needs perfectly.

        Very powerful and tons of great safety features
        I am a Welding student and use a grinder every day for school and I really wanted one for my shop to start doing my own projects. I needed a grinder that would be very portable and that I could take back and forth from school and home. And one that had enough power to cut through thicker material without a problem. This Makita XGT was the perfect solution for my needs. I can take it anywhere and it has all the power I could ever need for any job. It has performed flawlessly while cutting thicker stock and when prepping material. I have used it so much more than I thought because it is cordless and I can just grab it and go. Not to mention since I am newer to metal working and a student I really appreciate the safety features that are built in. The guard for example can rotate and lock in place without any tools, and the handle included is solid. Then the electronic safety features like the grinder’s brake that stops the motor in under two seconds when you shut it off and the grinder won’t just turn on when you insert the battery and the switch was set to on by accident. All of the safety features and power of this grinder make it a no brained for me.

        Runs a long time on a charge
        I have a couple of other grinders but I wanted one with a long running battery. This grinder runs well for general household jobs. I don't know how well it would hold up if being used by a contractor who ran it all day and every day but for regular use around the house and garage it works well. My only criticism is that it is pretty heavy and after awhile I need to give it a rest. I hope you find this helpful

        Great addition to my tool set!
        This a great and practical angle grinder. Light and durable. A great addition for the Makita tool enthusiast. The grinding stone is easy to remove and install. The guard acts as a shield for the stone when you are not using it. The battery has a good length of runtime, so more work with less down time. Made for right and left handed people. The bag is durable and sturdy.

        Amazing Angle grinder
        I'm reviewing a Makita 40-volt x GT brushless cordless four and a half to 5 in angle grinder kit with electric brake and 4 amp hour battery and charger. I've been using a corded Craftsman 4.5 inch angle grinder for years now and wow what a difference. It's's not just the speed of which it cuts or grinds it's the ease of doing it. You make a cut and let the switch go and it stops almost instantly so you don't have to wait for it to stop before you can set it down. You don't have a cord to drag around and get your way. It has tremendous power and nice balance. Sharpening a mower blade took seconds per side didn't burn the steel and cutting a miter on one inch steel box took maybe 10 seconds. Adjusting the guard is easy with no wrenches or screwdriver needed. Ergonomics just feels professional. Now it's not a cheap tool but you get what you pay for.

        this is great
        This is a kit of the angle grinder, rapid charger and battery. The 40V XGT 4.0 Ah battery powers the no nonsense on-off brushless angle grinder with a no-load speed of 8500 RPM. The slide on/lock switch has an anti-restart feature preventing accidental restart if the battery is put on with the on switch locked. The AFT shuts off the tool if the wheel stops, you can adjust the blade guard without any tools, the soft start makes the 8500 RPM manageable plus it has a 2 second electric brake. My old grinder had vent slots on the body which allowed junk to get into the grinder but this has vent intakes located just above the battery covered with a fine mesh stainless screen. The body tapers down to an easy to hold rubberized handle. The rapid recharger – is quick – the specs for this charger and a 4.0 Ah battery shows approximately 45 mins for a full charge. This is just plain great!

        A Great Cordless Angle Grinder
        Makita…. This 40V Max XGT Brushless Cordless cut-off/angle grinder is impressive, first thing you see, and feel is the high quality well balanced and zero vibration from the 8,500 RPM motor, this grinder is smooth, quiet, and dream to operate. In the box you get a 4 ½ -5 in angle grinder with electric break, a 40V charger and a 4.0Ah Lithium ion XGT battery, a 5” grinding Disc and a disc guard,a side handle, some safety features include an electric brake that stops the motor in appx 2 seconds, anti-restart protection, automatic speed change technology, feedback-sensing technology and a current limiter. what I like best is the soft start and the electric brake features. What a great tool I highly recommend it.
