There has been widespread use of the Makita GE0600 1/4" die grinder by Bonsai hobbyists for years; that model is now discontinued. Looking at the present 3 available models, one would usually think that a GD series preceeded, or was a lower grade than GE series, and that an 0601 was better or later than an 0600. Folks, I know this has nothing to do with the fact that Japanese read from right to left; but with theses die grinders, its just the opposite. Here's what they are:

GD0601 - standard 1/4" die grinder, same specs as the old GE 0600 but with switch moved to the side, and slightly restyled. Incidently, Amaozon identifies this as air powered, but it is (like all three of these) electric powered; you don't need a compressor.

GD0600 - Similar to the above, but with a paddle switch. According to Mr Recto's review here in Spanish language, the paddle switch must be contiuously held on to operate.

GD0800 - Similar to GD0601 but with 5 different speed variations ranging from 5000 to 28,000 rpm. The other two above models are fixed at 28,000 rpm.

the other 800 series model is also apparently discontinued, but had variable speeds all below 5000 rpm.

Doubtless there are technological and safety improvements also, but the specs and user features differ as described above. All can be used in a manner identical to the discontinued Makita GE0600.

I had used a Habor Freight die grinder before untill I burned it out which always felt dangerous to use, getting this makita was like the difference between heaven and hell of the die grinder world, this Makita is Great, solid, quit, very very smooth, and comfortable and secure to use, I highly recommend it. Well worth the money.

As I've said before I'm a pipe fitter, and I can say that I actually use this everyday. It's dedicated use is with a Pferd 6" carbide bit for cleaning spatter out of pipe. Being that it's constantly exposed to grinding dust and welding sparks and it's still going, that's pretty good. Oh yea, I've had it for about a year now. This tool is very quiet, produces very little vibration and has more than enough power for me. Oh yea, one more thing, PAY ATTENTION to the rpm ratings on bits that you use for this!! If you don't it will vibrate badly because the bits cannot stay balanced at 23,000 rpm. So, you'll have to spend extra on bits. Weiler brand grinding stones are about the best you can buy at the local hardware store.

This would be the 5th name-brand die grinder I've owned - and so far the best. Operation is super smooth and ergonomics are very comfortable. First Makita anything I've owned and I'm very impressed. Stacks up well against grinders that easily cost double.

I bought this wile rebuilding the engine in my 72 Bronco. I had to shave down some parts of the exhaust manifold to get them to fit with my new aftermarket heads and this thing worked beautifully. It is every bit as powerful and strong as a comparable air tool.

If you want an electric grinder when a air tool just won't do than this is your product.

Husband reports that he loves this die grinder. He is an engine machinist. He reports that it is quiet, light & powerful. Also, half the price we would have paid for buying it from the suppliers here in Canada.

This thing is huge compared to my pneumatic grinder, but it is nice not having to haul out the compressor and fire it up for small & quick jobs. Haven't used it much so I can't comment on its durability, but it looks like it'll work for my jobs (automotive, motorcycles, household). For its size, seems well balanced and easy to use in tight spots.

There is no way to adjust the speed on this die grinder. Sandpaper rolls should spin slower, but there is no way to do that with this Paddle switch die grinder. The technical details on the description say that it is variable speed, but it's not.

My $20 pneumatic die grinder works better; but you need an air compressor that can keep up with it. My 2.5 hp 21 gallon air compressor can't keep up with the pneumatic, so I switch back and forth.
