DGA517Z is a 125mm (5"), paddle switch, variable speed angle grinder.
It's powered by a Makita brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. For the most demanding applications, Makita’s exclusive "Automatic Torque Drive Technology" or ADT technology, automatically adjusts speed and torque during operation for optimal performance. The DGA517 is ideal for grinding and cutting a wide range of materials including tile, concrete, pipe, conduit, and more.
Another included feature is "Active Feedback sensing Technology" or AFT, that turns the motor off if rotation of the wheel is suddenly forced to stop.
Electric Brake stops the grinding or cut-off wheel in 2 seconds or less for maximum productivity.
"Active Feedback sensing Technology" turns the motor off if rotation speed suddenly slows or wheel is forced to stop.
"Automatic Torque Drive Technology" adjusts speed and torque during operation for optimum performance.
The BL Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling it to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life.
Variable speed control dial allows manual RPM adjustment (3,000-8,500) to match the speed to the application.
Paddle switch with no lock-on for operator convenience.
Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life.
Anti-restart protection engineered to prevent motor start up when battery is inserted with paddle switch in the on position.
Efficient Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimise battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge.
The electronically-controlled Brushless Motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application.
3-stage L.E.D. gauge indicates battery charge level.
Spiral bevel gears for smoother rotations and a more efficient transfer of energy.
Removable wire mesh intake covers are engineered to prevent debris from entering motor.
Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions.
Rubberised soft grip provides increased comfort on the job.
Compact and ergonomic design at only 382mm long.
Weighs only 3.1 kg with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue.
