Makita GA9040S 9-Inch Angle Grinder Soft Start Technology
Makita doesn’t provide a horsepower rating for their big angle grinder but it’s a 15 AMP motor so we can safely assume it offers comparable horsepower. The motor has a soft start feature, for smoother start-ups; if you’ve ever used a heavy duty angle grinder they can feel like they’re tearing your arms off when they start so it’s a nice feature to have. The rear handle rotates for better ergonomics and there’s soft over molded handles making this grinder a very comfortable tool to use overall. Like our other heavy-duty grinders, the motor armature is protected from dust for longer life and the guard is easily adjustable without any tools.
