Excessive vibration in a power tool is wasted motion which may affect a worker’s comfort level and, ultimately, productivity. Makita is bringing unprecedented levels of vibration reduction to the grinder category with the exclusive SJS II™ Technology. SJS™ II is a leaf spring and cam gear drive mechanism that is engineered to reduce vibration for increased operator comfort during extended use. It works by transferring the vibration through the wheel accessory spindle and onto a CAM component. The vibration causes the a cam to press against the leaf spring and absorb vibration for increased operator comfort. [Learn More]
Makita’s 5-inch SJS™II Compact Concrete Planer with Dust Extraction Shroud (PC5010CX1) is a kit that comes complete with one 4-1/2” Diamond Cup Wheel, which is engineered for low vibration and fast material removal. The PC5010CX1 combines power and ease-of-use with superior handling in a compact size. It is engineered for concrete finishing, concrete material removal and surface coating removal.
The PC5010C is powered by a 12 AMP motor with soft start for smooth start-ups and longer gear life. The constant speed control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load to complete the most challenging jobs, and the electronic current limiter helps protect the motor from overloading. The PC5010C is equipped with SJS™II, which is a leaf spring and cam gear mechanism that’s engineered for reduced vibration.
The integrated dust extraction shroud is designed to capture dust during operation, and includes a removable dust shroud cap that allows the tool to plane in corners and against walls. The shroud has soft brushes to help prevent dust from escaping, and the 4-spring suspension system keeps the shroud flush with the surface during movement. The PC5010C weighs only 5.5 lbs. and has an ergonomic soft grip and slide switch with lock-on function for continuous operation, as well as an ergonomic loop handle for improved comfort.
