    Nice, they do have a very large lineup of tools for sure.

    What’s the difference between this one and the one you already have?

    I know this one has the electric brake. That’s a good idea.

    Nice grinder Dirty. Makita makes some fine tools, glad the new releases will all be in one spot.

    Looks like a great addition for you Dirty. Sometimes it is just hard to beat them.

    I have the sliding switch version of that grinder…it’s really powerful! The runtime is quite impressive as well.

    Great thread @dirtywhiteboy! I’m impatiently awaiting the arrival of the new brushless reciprocating saws myself!

    I am quite happy with my bosch grinder. But this one looks good, brushless, thinner grip and a brake. NICE

    nice… i dont think makita does actual tool release events from what ive seen.. they do show of new tools at the world of concrete show in the winter and then at the international builders show in the fall though… i know they announced the brushless recip back at the builders show

    i follow ginwashi as well on insta… just wish his posts were in english.. he gets his hands on all the stuff thats in japan like the laser levels and some of hte high pressure nailers

    A weird looking charger and new radio is coming.

    A charger with a screen?? Why?

    Kinda sad when you have to get excited about a grinder as the new tool release. There was a time when Makita looked like they were poised to be king of the hill. That seems to have passed, as Big red and Big yellow have stormed to the front of the pack.

    Makita IS the king of the hill IMO!

    I honestly don’t know anyone who uses Milwaukee…and Dewalt is typically reserved for they guys who quite literally don’t know any better and just buy because of the history and the name. They are also the same guys who buy the cheap stuff in general.

    FWIW, this grinder is not only brushless but it has a load sensing technology that increases torque and drops RPM when the arbor speed drops, just like the new brushless circular saw. From a tech standpoint, it’s miles ahead of the competition. Other cordless grinders scream to a halt when they are pushed to the limit…this one puts its head down and plows through….so it IS something to get excited about.

    ouch, thats pretty blunt and maybe even a little narrow minded. All my tools are Bosch and Makitia. Years ago it was DeWalt. The red tools are tempting, although I will not make the jump. But the comment about the yellow tools, wow! I do not want them, yet I know for a fact that there is some top quality work being done by true pros with them

    Perhaps, but I’ve never had much luck with them, so my opinion has some backing. Certainly there are guys doing great work with Dewalt, but I refuse to invest after some of the experiences I’ve had.

    What was so blunt exactly? I don’t like them and I have my reasons…

    I also have no desire for them, so I understand your feelings there.

    The blunt was not intended to be rude or disrespectful in any way. But even though you use typcaly, when talking about the folks that use them or buy them ( can’t remember for sure how you put it, either way) implies, very strongly, about the persons potential as being very limited and not on a professional standard. As you said, IMO

    #537734

    Yeah I agree @siberian. To say someone who uses Dewalt is a lesser pro or cheap is way over the line. I respect everyone’s choice in tools but don’t knock their choices.

    I like Dewalt @jponto07…are you calling me cheap and less sophisticated because of that tool choice?

    Of course not Andrew! Maybe my words were a bit strong! I will say though that there are hacks that use tools of every color. I know a guy who uses Ryobi stuff and does fantastic work. Tool choice is certainly not indicative of a guy’s skill!

    To each his own, but I’ll say again, I’m not a fan because of hundreds of dollars of toasted tools I had to replace.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    This grinder is just one more good one to add to their line up of over 44 grinders they already make for all kinds of things.
    Milwaukee has 30 and DeWalt has over 50 ….
    Maybe we should have a separate thread on what is the best tool color as bickering over who is best was not my intent of starting this one
    Well Makita is a woodworking tool company. They are still the only one with beam saws and only Makita has a Chain Mortiser. A 12¼”planera 6¾” planer Makita was the first or maybe Hilti was??? With AVT teck.
    I do not believe the red&black or the yellow&black to be bad tools. I have a lot of yellow and black they are old and diehard!!
