Makita LXT Grinder Review – BGA452

This is a review of the Makita Grinder model number BGA452 that came in the kit  LXT702.  The Makita Grinder is built well. The motor delivers 10,000 RPMs and subsequently produces fast and effective grinding. Like all Makita tools in this cordless kit, it is very compact in design. It is 12-1/2″ long and weighs in at only 5.6 lbs with battery included. The Ergonomic grip makes the tool very easy to use, and the pressure delivered is even, producing easy control.  We didn’t have a problem gripping the grinder, but we do wish there was a little more black grip on the shaft.  The hard plastic can tend to be a little slippery at times.  The Grinder comes with a built-in electronic control circuit with LED warning lights for overload protection. Also, if the battery is starting to drain, the LED lights will come on to warn the user to change the battery.  As with most grinders, it has a slide switch with lock-on. The actual grinding wheel is 4-1/2″. The cut-off wheel is 4-1/2″. The wire cup brush comes in at 3-1/2″. The sanding disc is also 4-1/2″. The grinder delivers 54 watt hours of use, and the battery is 18VDC (3.0Ah). The grinder was fun to test. It may not seem like much, but we like being able to screw in the handle on either side...
