I am a professional steel fabricator with 20 - 35 employees that use and abuse these grinders daily. I have been buying or specifying the tool purchases for my company for 17 years. Of all the small grinders we own, the Makita 5" grinder is by far the best performing and durable tool of its type and size. Second best is a distant second.

I have a half dozen grinders with different wheels on each so I can quickly grab what I need. This is by far the best of the bunch.I

f there is alot of one type of work to do I'll take the time to put the wheel on this one. A big plus is that it takes the much cheaper and readily available 4 1/2" accessories.

I'm a sculptor, working mainly in steel. I have used, (and abused), these grinders for about 15 years. The power to weight ratio is excellent, and so far, each has lasted 3-4 years of work. I highly recommend this grinder.

I have used and owned many grinders over the last 20 years and this is the best grinder I have ever owned or used. When it finally died after about 6 or 7 years I felt really bad. I bought a cheaper ginder that used 4 1/2 inch grinding stones that lasted a few months. I am going back to this grinder and hopefully will never have to buy any other brand. I have smaller and larger grinders, but tend to grab this one first as it is so easy to handle and cuts almost as good as a larger grinder. It allows you to have really good control of what you are doing just by its shape. I also use it for smaller jobs more often than i would with most grinders of this size. It should get six stars.

I've bought 4 or 5 0f this model in the last 20 years for my business. They feel like the big grinders, and will cut as well if you use the fast-cut wheels. The first thing I do when I buy it is throw away the guard. They have new dangers with the guard plus are not near as versatile. The nice thing is if you get hung up you can handle the torque better than the full size grinders which I feel makes them safer.

where do they eventually fail
1 brushes wear down, you can order new brushes. do it before they start arcing bad
2 gear head goes bad, not if you re-pack it with grease before it starts growling
2 cord separates in side, you can only hang up dragging the chord around the shop so long before this happens. I re-wire from the switch to the plug with silicone shielded drop chord.
3 cutting wheel shaft gets bent, if you lay it on the floor it can't get jerked off the bench by your foot. They are fairly easy to bend. if not bent too bad your grinding wheel will wear until straight.

I have all my old ones in a box to pick-a-part. so far I've used a switch, and a couple arbor shafts.
the next grinder I buy will be another 9005B

This grinder deserves its excellent reviews. I am a welding instructor and this grinder is the most durable. Students don't treat tools carefully... the first thing that happens is they grind into the power cord, we replace it, sometimes several times. Eventually the disc lock will wear out (years of hard use), we've had a couple of switches broken and replaced. The only reason we even try other grinders anymore is because the the disc guard is easier to adjust on some grinders (if you tighten the screw just right, the guard is easy to adjust with this grinder too). Metabo makes a decent grinder with easy to adjust guard.

I much prefer this style (durable momentary switch on a small handle) over the straight barrel grinders commonly available in the 4 to 5-inch sizes. Also, be aware of the switch type. I like this type that is only on when you are holding pressure on the switch (safer) rather than the type where you push the switch in to the on position and it stays on. I also prefer this switch shape over "paddle" switches.

While somewhat more expensive than made-in-China 4 1/2" grinders, this unit is made in Japan and is professional quality. Total comfort using the grinder for an extended period. And it DOES have a lock-on switch, which is critical. There are a lot of 5" wheels available on Amazon and they spin faster and wear longer. Without a doubt, this is a superior grinder to just about any other one on the market. 5 stars. No doubt. Buy this one. Not the Dewalt. Not the Milwaukee. Not the Bosch. This one.
