Makita’s ¼” SJS Paddle Switch Die Grinder (model GD0801C) combines a powerful 6.6 AMP motor with motor and gear protection features for longer-lasting grinding performance. The GD0801C features a large flush-mount paddle switch for increased convenience. The GD0801C is equipped with SJS technology, an innovative mechanical clutch 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 GD0801C is powered by a 6.6 AMP motor that delivers 7,000 – 29,000 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 GD0801C 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.
  • Powerful 6.6 Amp motor delivers 7,000-29,000 RPM for faster material removal
  • Super Joint System (SJS) technology helps prevent motor and gear damage by allowing the drive shaft to slip if the wheel is forced to a stop
  • Variable speed control dial enables user to match the speed to the application
  • Constant speed control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load
  • Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life
  • Directional air-flow vents channel air output away from the operator
  • Labyrinth construction prevents debris from penetrating the motor, bearings and gears for longer tool life
  • Zigzag varnish protects the armature coil from dust and debris for longer motor life
  • Large flush-mount paddle switch for easy operation
  • Includes: 1/4 in. collet (192986-3), spanner wrench (781203-2), side handle (192985-5), wrench #19 (781206-6)

Can I buy a case with the grinder?

Asked by: Alex
Yes, Makita offers interlocking cases. You can search the Home Depot website under the following part numbers: 821549-5, 821550-0, 821551-8, 821552-6. The Makita medium, large or extra large interlocking case would hold the 1/4 in. SJS Die Grinder (GD0801C).
