Makita GA4530/2 4Â½" Angle Grinder 240V
Super grinder, minor flaw
Bought this when doing some work on a relatives house and didn't have my own grinder with me. Went for Makita over cheaper makes as I've always found their tools good and reliable. This grinder is light and very slim bodied but it's performance is excellent. Switch is a bit odd until you get the hang of it - a sort of push and tip action to get it to lock on. The only minor irritation is the shield around the disc - it doesn't have the flexibility in it's positions that I'd like. Maybe it's because I'm a left hander but I couldn't always get it where I wanted it when using the machine in tight spots. That said it's a great value for money, decent quality machine.

Great little grinder
I've purchased the Makita grinder after my previous, other brand, burnt out. Makita has always been my preference for power tools as they are affordable and reliable. I expect this to last a lot longer than the one that has recently given up.

Bought this grinder just over a year ago after my (10yr old) milwaukee packed up. Now I need a new one after this one did the same today. Apart from the length of cable, everything else on this tool WAS poor. Especially the on/off switch. Don't bother buying it.

Best smallest grinder
I always use Makita grinding power tools. Very good quality and reasonable price.
