Makita GA4530/2 4Â½" Angle Grinder 240V
Makita GA4530/2 4Â½" Grinder
Excellent Makita quality, bought this to add to my growing Makita power tool collection. Bought it to grind and level concrete fireplace hearth, light, balanced, powerful without a start up kick, which aided greatly when keeping it flowing over surface. Steadying handle at good angle to help support ( and I am left handed). Other reviewers have commented on trigger, it is a safe lock feature, if you slide up with your finger on the trigger at the M of the Makita logo just below the trigger it operates no problem, don't push directly on top of the trigger as it is designed not to operate unless you are sliding it.Once you slide it , it will lock on or release as you like.It's a very good safety feature to prevent accidental operation.

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.
