    Comments about 4-1/2 in. Slide Switch AC/DC Angle Grinder:

    I am knife maker and use some extremely hard steel. Cutting was always a major problem, No More. This little grinder completely solved my cutting problems and I started with some if my hardest and thickest knife steel. It also beats the heck out of a bench grinder got final shaping and beveling the blade. Haven 't had it long enough to comment on longevity. I would buy another and will definitely recommend it to everyone. The 7.5 amp motor is much more powerful than I had expected it to be.

            Comments about 4-1/2 in. Slide Switch AC/DC Angle Grinder:

            I caught these reconditioned Makita angle grinders on sale so I keep one set up for specific tasks and it seems to save me time. One each with the following: cut-off blade,grinding wheel, flap wheel and a wire brush. I do like the on off switch but occasionally I turn the tool off my mistake but that is very minor and hopefully I am trainable to hold it slightly differently. I got tired of burning through the Harbor Freight grinders and these were about twice the price but are holding up much,much better. I really dislike tools that let you down in the middle of a project. Buy with confidence.

            Questions & Answers

             

            New Vs. Reconditioned

            Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

            • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
            • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
            • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by CPO’s Money Back Guarantee;
              New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

            Warranty

            Warranty Information

            Makita Standard Warranty

            The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

            If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

            This Warranty does not apply where:
            • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
            • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
            • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
            • Alterations have been made to the tool
            In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
