MAKITA'S NEW 4-1/2", 5" AND 6" ANGLE GRINDERS WITH SJS OFFER POWER FOR TOUGHEST APPLICATIONS

JANUARY 2008 – La Mirada, CA – Makita USA, Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional quality power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of three new angle grinders equipped with Super Joint System (SJS) technology to prevent gear damage. The three new angle grinders – 9564PC
(4-1/2”), 9565PC (5”) and 9566PC (6”) – are powered by a Makita-built industrial 13 AMP motor to deliver more output power for increased performance, and are built for welders, fabricators, plumbers, masons, and more for a range of grinding applications. 
 
The three new grinders are engineered with Makita’s exclusive SJS technology. 
If the grinding wheel should accidentally catch or bind, the gears automatically disengage from the motor. SJS stops the wheel, minimizes grinder kickback, and protects the gears. The three new grinders also feature a labyrinth construction, which seals the motor from exterior dust and debris by creating a complex set of channels and prohibiting contamination. In addition, the protective zig-zag varnish seals the motor from dust and debris by creating a barrier under rotation.
 
In addition to durability and performance, Makita engineered comfort and ergonomics into the grinders for professional use all day long. The gear housing can be rotated 90 degrees, and the side handle can be easily installed on both sides of the tool as well as the top for operator convenience. The “tool-less” wheel guard adjustment provides easy clamping.
 
All three grinders are built to suit the most 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 grinders are built for professional tradesman, including welders, fabricators, plumbers, masons, electricians, automotive, stone and tile work, HVAC, and more. 
 
9564PC, 9565PC, and 9566PC include the tool, one grinding wheel, side handle, “tool-less” wheel guard, inner flange, lock nut, and lock nut wrench.
