Rated 4 out of 5 by Usual Makita quality I bought this to replace my 20 year old AEG, which was good but with a very noisy gearbox. The Makita seems well built and has had some serious use since I bought it 18 months ago, not frequently but lots of prolonged use. I would agree that the switch is not the best, with mine it seems affected by dust, which is part and parcel of being a grinder! Fixed mine with a serious attack with an airline and then just a touch of silicone lubricant and it's been fine since 29 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good tool to have Only used the tool a couple of times but it's worked well easy to change disks and guard not to heavy when prolonged use so not struggling to operate machine 19 Sep 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rubbish Switch The reviews going back to 2013 are quite correct the switch on this grinder is complete rubbish. Tested at Screwfix before taking home as i'd read the reviews - no problem. Used for a couple of hours switch gets progressively harder to turn on till it reaches the point where it wont turn on at all. Have been through 2 machines now exactly the same problem - basic design fault. Switched to a Dewalt 1935F now - much better all round machine. 25 Jun 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst buy ever Bought to replace Dewalt that only lasted 6 months, assembled it, went to switch on and the switch just dropped off. So I can't comment on the practical usage - but it doesn't bode well for their products, needless to say it being returned for a refund. Might just be a dodgy one off but it has put me off ever buying their stuff. 22 Jun 2015
