XAG09Z vs. XAG04Z
The new Makita 4.5-5 Inch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder (XAG09Z) is the upgraded replacement for the very popular Makita 4-1/2 Inch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder (XAG04Z). The new grinder has more power, runs cooler, has a longer life and better reliability than the old model.
The new grinder is more powerful than the old one, but not as powerful as an impact driver or hammer drill. The motor has been upgraded to produce 5.6 Amps of power (up from 4 Amps) and can still produce 11,000 RPM. This extra power really improves the performance of the tool and makes cutting faster and easier than before.
The new grinder also runs cooler (approximately 500 degrees Fahrenheit cooler) than the old model. This means longer duty cycles and less time waiting for the tool to cool down. It also has a longer service life and will keep running even under heavy loads.
In addition to the increased power and cooling, the new Makita 4-1/2 Inch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder has a longer tool life than the old model. This means that you can grind more material before having to replace the grinder. It also has a new housing design that is stronger and more durable.
The new Makita 4.5-5 Inch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder has many of the same great features as the old model such as quiet operation, easy changing of cutting discs, quick disc release system, dustproof top cover and more.
Both old and new versions come with a metal carrying case, two 4.0 Amp hour batteries, a battery charger, cutting guard, side handle, hex wrench and cutting discs. The Makita 4.5 Inch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder (model XAG04Z) can be used with all of the Makita 4.0 battery packs and with all of the older 3.0 battery packs.
The new grinder is covered by a three year warranty and is expected to retail for about $169.00 when it becomes available in late March.
