grinder has the power and torque to
handle a 6" diamond blade which provides a 1-5/8"
depth-of-cut. Many contractors have used larger and heavier 7" and 9" angle grinders and 7" blades.
These larger grinders are used for increased blade life and
grinding speed, and not necessarily for depth-of-cut
reasons. Considering power, size and weight, operator
productivity improves significantly using a 9564CV
vs. and other size angle grinder - large or small.
the Makita 9564CV Grinder

features: Soft Start, helps prevent electrical overloads
