Features

The G12VA is Hitachi's latest professional-grade 4-1/2 In. grinder. With outstanding power at over 1500 W, the G12VA is in a class of its own. This grinder isn't just muscle, though. This grinder utilizes zero voltage restart protection that prevents it from restarting if power is temporarily lost while the tool is in operation. It also features a variable speed switch to set the RPMs to suit the application, as well as an anti-vibration side handle, kick-back reduction, a tool-less wheel guard that can be removed if the job calls for it, and a low-profile, compact design, which also allows it to fit into tight spaces.

Additional Features

  • Powerful 13 Amp motor produces a best-in-class 1,500 watt output
  • Variable speed switch allows the user to determine the best speed for the application
  • Anti-vibration side handle offers comfort during extended use
  • Tool-less wheel guard for quick and easy disc changes
  • Kick-back protection quickly shuts off power in the event of a bound wheel, protecting the user and extending the life of the gears and motor
  • Overload protection stops the motor when too much pressure is applied to extend motor life
  • Trigger lock-on for comfortable and continuous operation
  • Zero voltage restart protection prevents restarting if power is temporarily cut during operation
  • 4.4 lbs, lightweight design, facilitates maneuverability and is excellent for overhead applications

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Variable speed makes it super-versatile I've had this grinder for less than a month and haven't used it for much yet, so I have no opinion re: durability, reliability, etc. The build does seem "tank-like." What's great about it is the variable speeds, which make it useful for far more than the usual cutting and grinding. It's also crazy powerful (13 amps) and doesn't bog down under load. The VS circuitry seems to be an RPM sensory feedback loop, so it adjusts torque under load to maintain RPM. What I like least is how heavy it is. You MUST use both hands and keep it between your hips and shoulders or it will wear you out quick. The motor housing is also the main "handle," of course, and it's so fat it's not easy to hold. People with small hands should avoid this grinder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very durable product I work for a company that has a weld and fab shop and performs field work. i am one of the 40 road techs. The company was buying Dewalt grinders and we were burning them up at a rate of 10 per week. on my truck i would go thru 2 per month. we switched to the Hitachi grinders and i have had mine for 3 years now and the shop went from 10 per week to maybe 1 per month. i will never buy another brand of grinder.
