MAKITA’S NEW 4” AND 4-1/2” ANGLE GRINDERS COMBINE 6 AMP POWER WITH NEW SLIM BARREL GRIP FOR INCREASED COMFORT

New angle grinders are more compact with less weight

NOVEMBER 5, 2009 – La Mirada, CA – Makita USA, Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional quality power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of two new angle grinders that combine power and performance with added comfort. The two new angle grinders – GA4030/K (4”) and GA4530 (4-1/2”) are powered by a Makita-built industrial 6 AMP motor to deliver more output power for increased performance for masons, welders, ship yard workers, automotive technicians, stone/tile work, HVAC, electricians, and more for a range of grinding applications.

Both the GA4030/K and GA4530 are powered by a Makita-built 6 AMP motor that delivers 11,000 RPM for the most demanding applications. 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 2X longer service life than competitive models, and the all ball bearing design and metal gear housing are engineered for added durability.

In addition to durability and performance, Makita engineered comfort and convenience features into the grinders for professional use all day long. The GA4030/K and GA4530 have a small circumference barrel grip – only 2-1/4” – 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 for operator convenience.

Both grinders are built to suit the most demanding applications, including cutting brick and masonry, cutting ferrous metal, paint and rust removal, shipyard maintenance, heavy machinery, metal polishing, general grinding, auto repair work, cutting limestone, and more. The grinders are built for professional tradesman, including masons, welders, ship yard workers, automotive technicians, stone/tile work, HVAC, electricians, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class angle grinder.

GA4030/K and GA4530 include the tool, one grinding wheel, wheel guard, lock-nut, lock-nut wrench, side handle, and inner flange. The GA4030/K includes a case.
