July 13, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the leader in power tool innovation, has announced the X-LOCK angle grinder accessory line. X-LOCK accessories come in a variety of blades, wheels, and brushes. The accessories are designed to work with Makita® X-LOCK Angle Grinders (XAG25, XAG26, GA4507, all sold separately), which offer quick, tool-less accessory changes for efficiency. Most of the accessories are backwards compatible with standard 7/8” arbor grinders found in the marketplace today.
- Diamond Blades – Available in segmented, turbo, or continuous rims, diamond blades feature more bond material for faster material removal and taller segments for faster cutting.
- Flap Discs – Type 27 Flap Disc for blending and finishing in a variety of grit options and Type 29 Angled Disc for grinding and polishing in various grit options. These are ideal for metal and stainless-steel applications.
- Grinding & Cut-Off Wheels – For metal and stainless-steel cutting, Makita is offering 4-1/2” and 5” grinding and cut-off wheels. They feature more bond material for faster material removal and cleaner cuts.
- Wire Cup Brushes and Wheels – Makita offers a variety crimped wire and knot wire brushes, as well as full cable knotted twist and stringer bead twist wheels. These are only compatible with X-LOCK angle grinders because their design prohibits the flange and lock nut from securing the accessory to a standard 7/8” arbor mount angle grinder.
“We’re incredibly excited to be offering a line-up of X-LOCK accessories that work on both X-LOCK and the millions of standard angle grinders available,” states Andrew Camp, director of product management, accessories. “The new X-LOCK accessories are feature-rich and meet the demanding performance standards of metalworking and masonry professionals. As a trusted brand in the grinder/abrasive category, Makita is well-positioned to offer angle grinders with an innovative feature and coordinating accessories that deliver greater value to customers.”
