Makita 9565CV Angle Grinder Review

Makita 9565CV PriceMakita 9565CV features a great and powerful motor of 13 Amp, which gives fast and efficient grinding and cutting jobs. With the help of this powerful motor its abrasive wheel rotates with a variable speed of 2800 to 10,500 RPM.

I personally like the variable speed option as it gives endless versatility. You can use your angle grinder for multiple purposes when it has a variable speed option.

For this, you will see there is a speed controller at the side of the tool, with the help of which you can set different rotations per minute.

This means you can use a different speed for different materials. For instance, for cutting tiles and concrete you have to be very precise, so you can lower RPM for this job whereas when grinding or polishing any surface, high RPM can be sued without any fear.

Besides this, Makita 9565 also features a slow start-up. It is extremely important for the safety and protection of the user. Slow start-up feature allows the device to start slowly so that you can have a firm grip over the angle grinder and then slowly and gradually it increases its speed till your desired RPM.

Slow startup not only reduces the chances of any sudden kickbacks but also it increases the gear life of angle grinder.

Now let’s ponder some light over the durability and motor-protection features.

As far as motor-protection is concerned, Makita has put into excellent effort to make 9565Cv one of the most long-lasting angle grinders.

Makita 9565 comes with an innovative SJS™ characteristic. SJS or super joint system is a mechanical clutch system that prevents damage to motor and gear of angle grinder.

Actually, the motor armature and spiral bevel gear are attached together with the help of coil spring. If the wheel stops forcefully during operation, the coil spring will be compressed that slips the drive shaft of the motor.

In turn, will minimize the gear tension whereas armature will continue to rotate. This is how the motor will remain protected from burn out.

In addition to this, Makita 9565CV is equipped with an amazing characteristic of Electronic current limiter. It will completely protect the motor from getting burn due to overload.

Now you don’t have to worry about motor during heavy-duty grinding or cutting jobs, if the electronic current limiter feels that the motor will burn out, it will automatically maintain a consistent speed.

Moreover, the entire motor has Labyrinth construction which will protect it against dust and debris. And when you open 9565cv angle grinder, you will see that motor and bearings have protective zig-zag varnish which seals the motor and bearing so that no harsh element may enter inside the tool and damage it.

Indeed, Makita has focused excellently on the durability and longevity of 9565 CV angle grinder.

Safety and convenience of the user is the prime objective of the Makita power tool, that’s why 9565cv angle grinder features some safety-related characteristics.

It has a two-positioned adjustable side handle that can be installed either on the right side or left side. This means left-handed people can fearlessly use this angle grinder.

Besides this, the handle is ergonomically designed along with a soft rubber grip so that you can experience a high level of comfort during tough cutting or grinding applications.

Not only this, but Makita 9565 also saves your precious time with the help of a tool-less wheel guard. Guard can be positioned in any direction as per your need all you have to do is just push the guard and set it in your desired position.

Wheel guard is a protective feature that protects internal component of the angle grinder from dirt and debris.

As far as its start on/off switch is concerned Makita has also won here. It features an extremely convenient slide switch that eliminates the hassle of pressing switch frequently. Just slide it and lock it and now you can easily do your work. Quite user-friendly, right!.

Since it features 5 inches of wheel diameter, then you must be thinking that it would be quite heavy in weight. But let me tell you, here you are wrong. Makita 9565cv is one of the lightweight angle grinders that weighs only 4 pounds.

Being lightweight is also a user convenience feature if the tool is light in weight users can conveniently hold it without being fatigue during heavy-duty processes.

Perfection and durability ooze out from every inch of this 9565CV angle grinder. Makita has also won its customer hearts by launching such an amazing angle grinder that gives an incredible performance.
