Does this comes with a wheel cutting guard?

Asked by Gomez44 March 17, 2018

Answers

My Makita 4 1/2 in Paddle Switch Grinder kit came with two guards. The standard 'Wheel Guard' surrounds the rear half of the grinding or cut-off wheels, and leaves the entire bottom of a wheel exposed. The 'Wheel Guard (For cut-off wheel)' surrounds the rear half of the grinding or cut-off wheels, and also covers the rear half of the bottom of the wheels. There can be some cutting and grinding tasks where the guard may interfere, and it can be removed. However, when this safety guard is removed you must be very careful to prevent personal injury.

For cutting/grinding the concrete sidewalk edge, there are two types of wheels that could do the job. There is a basic masonry/concrete grinding/cutoff wheel which come in various thicknesses (e.g., 1/8" and 1/4") and cost $3-$4 each. The thinner wheels cut faster but wear out quicker. The thicker wheels are more suited for grinding. Also, there are the diamond cup segmented grinding wheels that cost $30-$50. I have used many of the masonry cutoff wheels for cutting and grinding concrete. Personally, I have been happy with the Diablo brand although other brands are good as well. For sections of my concrete driveway that lifted up 1" and is 10ft wide I am planning on buying a diamond segmented grinding wheel. At homedepot.com just do a search for "concrete grinding wheel". For both types of wheels, there is a large selection available in-store and online. CAUTION: Safety goggle use is mandatory.

can I cut rebar with this grinder? If so, what kind of cut off wheel should I use.

Use a metal cut off wheel. Don't try to use the grinding wheel.

Will it grind the edges smooth and polish a 6 foot slab of granite?

Asked by Alf March 29, 2018

Answers

I have never tried cutting, smoothing and polishing granite, which is a very hard stone. I have read that it is recommended you use a range of polishing wheels (disks) from 60 to 3000 grits, with the final 3000 grit providing a mirror like finish. These granite smoothing/polishing kits, that include diamond impregnated disks are available for angle grinders (variable speed). However, it appears 3000 rpm is recommended. My Makita 4 1/2" angle grinder operates at 11,000 rpm, although I wish it was variable speed. High speed, and non-water cooling could over heat the granite and possibly cause cracking. Therefore, high speed angle grinders (non-variable speed), would not be the right tools for smoothing and polishing granite.

This grinder was an excellent choice. I ran it off and on for about 3 hours, and it never once got WARM. The various attachment blades that come with this kit is extremely brilliant. After grinding off the excess bolts I switched blades and smoothed out the sharp edges. The case makes it easy for transportation, and keeping drill, and accessories undamaged. Very lightweight. Shoulders, nor arms got sore after 3 hours. I'd recommend this product to any handyman, or maintenance workers. R.Tosta

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.

The price is reasonable for just the angle grinder. Getting a case with a diamond cutting wheel, five grinding wheels and two wheel guards makes this an unbeatable deal.

The Makita 7.5 Amp Corded 4 1/2” Angle Grinder performed well for my job grinding down mortar beds and repairing detached flagstones on patio. Also bought their Dust Extraction Surface Grinding Shroud but had to buy 3rd party adaptor (TDVS Universal Vacuum Hose Adapter Kit Reducer Attachment Set) to connect Shroud to ShopVac 1” diameter hose).
