They are good workhorse grinders.
The best feature about them is they run nice and smooth - much smoother than my Bosch grinders.
The ergonomics are just OK. The barrel is pretty big for my hands - it's a bit too bulky to use the grinder one handed.
This summer I ran one of them for many hours with a masonry blade in it. I had to rebuild some brick steps on my house and I had to remove the old mortar from quite a few bricks. I probably ran the grinder for 10 hours straight, holding a brick in one hand and holding the grinder in the other with a masonry cutoff wheel in it. - I went through about 10 wheels. The job was really dusty and dirty but the grinder didn't miss a beat, and has nice power.
The blade changes are typical, a pin wrench to loosen the nut. The tool has a nice wheel lock button on it.
What do I not like? The switch. The thumb switch on these is very difficult to use, especially if you are wearing gloves. It just doesn't seem to want to stay switched on, any slight touch of the switch and it turns off. When I had heavy leather gloves on it seemed I couldn't even turn it on and get my thumb off the switch without my gloves switching it back off. This was extremely frustrating. I know they do this so the grinder is safe and to be fair, I've found almost all angle grinders are n this regard wth the exception of Metabo.
So there you have it. It's a good grinder. It runs smooth. It is durable. The barrel is a little thick for my tastes, and I don't really like the locking mechanism on the switch.
Makita's tool has a nice feel to it with plenty of power. The switch is fine but quite close to the cutting wheel. Don't use it without the guard! Wheel changing isn't bad with the special tool and lock nut.
Again it's almost impossible to mess up the design of a small grinder. They are just too simple a tool and Makita does do that.
Unfortunately, this is made in China, and given the luck I've been having with their products of late, I probably wouldn't have had the GF pick this up for me had I known. C'mon Japan, you can do better.
If one-handed operation isn't a priority, may I recommend the superbly balanced and even more powerful Metabo which I have also had the pleasure to use? It's made in Germany!
