Makita USA Inc. has released two new angle grinders that combine power and performance with added comfort. The grinders — GA4030/K (4 inches) and GA4530 (4 1/2 inches) are powered by a Makita-built industrial 6-amp motor that delivers 11,000 rpm.
The labyrinth construction seals and protects the motor and bearings from dust and debris for longer tool life. In addition, the machined bevel gears provide at least two times longer service life than competitive models, and the all-ball-bearing design and metal gear housing are engineered for added durability.
The GA4030/K and GA4530 have a small-circumference barrel grip — only 2 1/4-inches — for added comfort, with less weight at just 3.1 pounds. The gear housing can be positioned every 90 degrees for a range of cutting applications, and the side handle can be easily installed on both sides of the tool as well as the top.
Both grinders are built to suit the most demanding applications, including cutting brick and masonry, paint and rust removal, general grinding, cutting limestone and more. The GA4030/K and GA4530 include the tool, one grinding wheel, a wheel guard, side handle and inner flange. The GA4030/K includes a case.
