good grinder for the price

"I bought this to replace my bosch 115 grinder.
Whilst I agree that the on/off switch can be a little difficult once you get used to it, it's ok and does have lock on the switch, so if you have a lot of cutting (metal/tiles) it's fine. I bought this one in Spain at a cheaper price than in England.
Yes I would recommend this grinder.
Now looking at Makita Cordless drills as my previous Makita the batteries are starting to loose the charge after 20 years of daily constant use.

Dodgy switch

"Wish I'd read the earlier review before buying!
My grinder went back the first time I used it as the switch was so stiff.
Screwfix replaced it no problem as it was inside 30 days.
The switch on the new one was fine but quickly got to be just as bad.
This time it's going back to Makita for repair - it's outside the 30 days so they won't swap it for a different model unfortunately, which is my recommendation !

Absolute Rubbish On/Off Switch
9 Feb 2014

"I'm a big fan of the Makita brand owning 6 other Makita power tools, but this grinder was the biggest let down ever. Although it feels nice in the hand, has a good quality mains cable, comes with a metal grinding blade and was not a bad price, the extremely poor on/off switch means I will be returning this to Screwfix Monday morning for a full refund.
The switch is so bad that after 30 seconds of use I put this grinder back in its box and used my clapped out Bosch that I've had for 10 years!
Wish I'd read the reviews for the othe Makita grinders before buying this
