Makita 8mm Side Switch 1/4″ Die Grinder with SJS GD0800C

Makita’s 1/4”, SJS Die Grinder (model GD0800C) combines a powerful 6.6 AMP motor with motor and gear protection features for longer-lasting grinding performance. The GD0800C features a slide switch for increased convenience.

The GD0800C is equipped with SJS technology, an innovative mechanical system that allows the drive shaft to slip if the wheel suddenly catches or binds. SJS is engineered to help protect the gears and motor, and extend grinder life.

The GD0800C is powered by a 6.6 AMP motor that delivers 7,000 – 28,000 RPM with soft start for smooth start-ups. The electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load, and a variable speed control dial allows the user to match the speed to the application. Consistent with other models in Makita’s expanding grinder line-up, the GD0800C features labyrinth construction, a series of channels engineered to capture dust and debris and prevent contaminants from penetrating the gear box and front armature bearing for longer tool life. In addition, the protective zig-zag varnish seals the motor and bearings from dust and debris by creating a barrier under rotation.


  • Powerful 6.6 AMP motor delivers 7,000-28,000 RPM for faster material removal
  • SJS technology is a mechanical clutch system that helps prevent motor and gear damage by allowing the drive shaft to slip if the wheel is forced to stop
  • Variable speed control dial enables user to match the speed to the application
  • Constant speed control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load
  • Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life
  • Electronic current limiter helps protect the motor from overload
  • Directional air-flow vents channel the tool’s air output away from the user’s face
  • Labyrinth construction prevents debris from penetrating the motor, bearings and gears for longer tool life
  • Zig-zag varnish protects the armature coil from dust and debris for longer motor life
