Automatic Speed Change™ technology offers an optimum performance by automatically adjusting speed and torque during operation. The electronic controller offers a soft start that suppresses start-up reactions for smooth start-ups and longer gear life. Anti-restart protection is engineered to avoid motor start-up in the on-power switch position after a power disruption. The Makita’s star protection computer control protects the battery by avoiding over-heating and over-loading. Multi-stage LED displays indicate the power remaining. Wire mesh intake covers are designed to avoid debris from entering the motor. The electric brake stops the wheel in 4.5 seconds or less on the release of the paddle switch. AFT® technology turns the motor off if the rotation of the wheel is suddenly forced to stop. It includes a grinding wheel, cut-off wheel, grinding wheel guard and cut-off wheel guard.
