How does this Makita 6.6 Amp 1/4 in. SJS Die Grinder compare/differ from the Makita 2.2 Amp Corded 1/4 in. Compact Die Grinder w/ rocker switch, 28,000 RPM? Pros? Cons in comparing them? Thanks!
Asked by: MCB
Thank you for your question. The GD0800C 1/4" SJS™ Die Grinder is equipped with SJS™, an innovative mechanical system that allows the drive shaft to slip if the wheel suddenly catches or binds. SJS™ is engineered to help protect the gears and motor, and extend grinder life. The GD0800C is powered by a 6.6 AMP motor that delivers 7,000 – 28,000 RPM with soft start for smooth start-ups. The electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load, and a variable speed control dial allows the user to match the speed to the application. Consistent with other models in Makita’s expanding grinder line-up, the GD0800C features labyrinth construction, a series of channels engineered to capture dust and debris and prevent contaminants from penetrating the gear box and front armature bearing for longer tool life. In addition, the protective zig-zag varnish seals the motor and bearings from dust and debris by creating a barrier under rotation. The GD0603 1/4" Compact Die Grinder combines power and speed in a compact size, and features motor-protection features for longer tool life. It has a powerful 2.2 AMP motor with 25,000 RPM in a slim body design, and a conveniently located rocker switch with lock-on for operator convenience. Durability features include a powder-coated field that protects the motor from dust and debris for longer tool life. Convenience features include directional air-flow vents to channel air output away from the operator, a comfortable contoured neck grip, and a metal hanging hook. This combination of power, durability and ease-of-use features makes the GD0603 ideal for a range of grinding tasks including pipe fittings and small-scale grinding.

6.6 Amp 1/4 in. SJS Die Grinder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Die Grinder This is a solid heavy duty tool with lots of power. The slide switch is a little hard to release and turn off with a gloved hand.
Date published: 2011-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product This thing is great for multiple jobs. Makita to me is second to none. Built in Japan, unlike most other tools including Dewalt and Milwaukee. Kobalt is a joke and would never buy Anything made by Kobalt. I still buy Husky but as far as top tools. MAKITA all the way.
Date published: 2014-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the features we needed when using a Die Grinder I find it very usefull to have a variable speed controll, it allows for more controll of material removal.
Date published: 2012-10-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hits the spot!!! Exactly what I needed for my new business/hobby...chainsaw carving. Very powerful and love the easy variable speed dial. High quality product that I am sure will last me years to come.
Date published: 2015-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great variable speed die grinder. This is my third one, we use them almost daily and they work great. Finding a die grinder with a slow enough speed to use carbide burrs is tough, and this one works great.
Date published: 2016-09-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very smooth operating tool. This is my very first Makita tool and my first die grinder. The quality and performance of this tool has exceeded my expectations.
Date published: 2013-11-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little expensive but a good value. I like the variable speed and lighter weight. I have small hands so the small grip with side handle helps greatly to control the grinder. A must for inside corner weld grinding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from If recommended, but honestly it is difficult to remove the drills. If recommended, but honestly it is difficult to remove the drills.
