The next generation of angle grinding
Makita has launched four new 40V brushless angle grinder models as
part of its new XGT range. The powerful cordless 40V lithium-ion battery
platform, a ords users with high levels of power for demanding jobs with
the fl exibility and portability of cordless.
For professional use in high demand industrial applications, the
new brushles s angle grinders are engineered to deliver the power and
performance of a corded machine, without the hassles and restrictions of
a cord. With the equivalent power of a 1,100W corded grinder and a no
load speed of 8,500rpm, the new products feature fast and easy angle
adjustment with a toolless guard system to help make working more
cient and convenient.
The new XGT 40V Max GA005G and GA004G angle grinders operate
with a slide switch and with 125mm and 115mm wheel diameter options
respectively. The new XGT 40V Max GA013G angle grinder with 125mm
wheel diameter and the GA012G angle grinder with 115mm wheel
diameter are both operated with a paddle switch function.
With enhanced safety in mind, the low vibration grinders include an
electric brake and Makita’s Active Feedback sensing Technology (AFT),
which turns the motor o if the rotation speed suddenly slows or if the
wheel is forced to stop. Furthermore, the anti-restart function prevents
accidental motor start-up when a battery is inserted with the switch
locked on, while the new push guard system provides operators with
seven pre-set positions ready to use straight away.
The new grinders have been designed to ensure long-term durability
in challenging environments, with large bearings that support the motor
and a new switch design to reduce contact wearing. The soft start
function also works to suppress the start-up reaction, so start-ups are
smoother and the gear life is prolonged. For ease of operation, the side
handle can be adjusted for left or right-hand use, depending on the
operator preference or workspace.
In addition, the brushless motor optimises battery use – resulting in
long run-times per charge – and e
ciently uses energy to match torque
and RPM to the changing demands of the application. And since there
are no carbon brushes, a brushless motor runs cooler and more e
for longer life.
Kevin Brannigan, marketing manager at Makita UK, said: “The new
40V angle grinders o er high power and performance for continuous
heavy-duty cutting and grinding, all fuelled by our new XGT battery
platform with e
cient charging and battery power that can genuinely
stand up to the toughest of jobs.
“Makita continues to invest and innovate in technology and
equipment that makes working easier for professionals. The new 40V
XGT battery platform stands side-by-side with our 18V LXT system, and
we are delighted to o er professionals with a wider choice of batterypowered
solutions for a truly cordless job site.”
