The Makita DGA901 angle grinder has been designed with the end user in mind. It is powered by two 18V Li-ion batteries in a series to supply energy to the powerful 36V DC motor drive system. Safety is key with this new angle grinder. It contains Active Feedback Sensing Technology (AFT) which shuts down the tool to protect the user if the rotation speed suddenly slows down as well as an electric brake which conserves battery power and decreases the likelihood of injury caused by a spinning bit.
AUTO-START WIRELESS SYSTEM
The main event in this angle grinder is that it features Makita’s new Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS). This system uses Bluetooth technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the tool and dust extractor, saving valuable time and battery life.
AWS allows this angle grinder to connect to compatible dust extractors via Bluetooth. This means that when connected to the dust extractor, it will automatically run while the switch is on. For added convenience, you can link up to 10 AWS tools to one AWS dust extractor. This means you are set for all your Makita tools, not just this angle grinder.
AWS can also help reduce trip hazards you may have previously encountered when replugging the cord. The dust extractor will only run whilst the power tool is in use. Therefore, significantly reduces continuous noise on the job or work site meaning everyone is happy!
