Makita DGA517Z 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 5 in. Brushless Angle Grinder with Paddle Switch (Tool Only) is a cordless angle grinder with two stage safety paddle switch, electric brake, and variable speed control dial, delivering 3, 000 up to 8, 500 rpm to enable the user to match the speed to the application, anti-restart and safety paddle switch. The brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. With spiral bevel gears for smoother rotations and more efficient transfer of energy, wire mesh intake covers to prevent debris from entering the motor and removable dust covers. Features automatic torque drive technology (add), automatically changes the cutting speed according to the load for optimum operation and active feedback sensing technology (aft), shuts down the tool to protect the user if the rotation speed suddenly slows down.


  • Two stage safety paddle switch, electric brake, variable speed
  • Automatic torque Drive Technology (ADT) adjusts the torque and speed according to the load condition, enabling rapid movement between high speed and high torque applications
  • eXtreme Protection Technology (XPT) offers maximum protection against dust, debris and liquids for optimal performance in extreme conditions
  • Active Feedback sensing Technology (AFT) automatically shuts down the tool if there is a sudden drop in rotation speed (e.g. kick-back)
  • Brushless DC motor with high power to weight and size ratio
  • Brushless DC motor generates less heat buildup and is ideal for prolonged use in manufacturing / production applications
  • Anti-restart feature prevents accidental start up of tool during battery changing when switch is locked in the on position
  • Soft start feature gradually increases speed to eliminate start up shock
  • Variable speed dial enables operator to adjust wheel speed based on materials or application
  • Electronic current limiter protects motor from accidental overload
