Makita GA5080 Description

The 5” X-LOCK Angle Grinder (GA5080) offers X-LOCK technology for up to 5-times faster accessory changes than traditional threaded locknut mounting. A click-mount and pull release lever make changing wheels easy. The GA5080 offers a powerful 13.0 AMP motor for more output for demanding applications. The GA5080 is a versatile and powerful grinder engineered for demanding applications including cutting, ferrous metal, paint and rust removal, shipyard maintenance, heavy machinery, metal polishing, general steel grinding, auto repair work, cutting brick and masonry, and restoration work. The grinder is built for welders, fabricators, plumbers, masons, electricians, automotive technicians, stone and tile workers, HVAC, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class industrial quality angle grinder. It features SJS Technology, a mechanical clutch system that helps prevent motor and gear damage by allowing the drive shaft to slip if the wheel is forced to stop. The labyrinth construction seals and protects the motor and bearings from dust and debris for longer tool life. In addition, the armature is sealed by a protective zig-zag varnish which prevents contamination by creating a barrier under rotation. The ball bearing design and metal gear housing provide increased durability. Other features include constant speed control, soft start, and slide switch with lock-on for continuous use.
