Grinders are one of the few tools on the jobsite that are true multitaskers and likely a good reason to make sure you get a good one. They can cut, sand, grind, shape, polish and sharpen, something many of us do on a daily basis.

The two new Makita angle grinders – GA4030/K (4”) and GA4530 (4-1/2”) are powered by a Makita built industrial 6 AMP motor - gotta love Makita for building their own motors and not using something off the shelf. These 11,00 RPM motors are also sealed to protect the bearings from dust and debris, and feature machined gears that are said to last twice as long as competitive models.

Makita also had comfort in mind when designing these new grinders and decreased the size of the barrel grip to only 2-2/4”. They also added a 3rd top position mount for the side handle in addition to the 2 side mounts. This new position should really come in handy during cutting applications. You will notice that both models are basically the same with the disk size and spindle thread type being the only differences.
