Makita XAG13Z1 18V LXT 9-Inch Angle Grinder
So far, every model featured in this review has had a cut-off wheel of 5 inches or less. This Makita offers a cut-off wheel diameter of 9 inches, effectively doubling the depth of cut of this tool.
If you are working with large stones or cutting through masonry to create an opening, this is the angle grinder for you. Like other Makita tools, this model has the same auto-stop feature that cuts power to the saw blade if it gets jammed.
You also get the same speed sensor that automatically adjusts the speed at which this grinder drives the wheel. This feature is very handy because it takes the guesswork out of cutting heavy material.
The brushless motor delivers 6,000 rpm, and the Star Computer Protection reduces the risk of overload and over-discharge. As with other Makita models, the batteries and charger are supplied separately, so there is an additional cost.
Why we love it
