Makita’s 5” SJS™ Angle Grinder combines 13 AMP power and variable speed with comfort and motor-protection features for longer-lasting industrial performance. The 9565PCV is engineered with Makita’s innovative SJS™ mechanical clutch system to protect the gears for longer tool life.

13 AMP Power with SJS™ to Protect Gears


The 9565PCV is powered by a 13 AMP motor that delivers 2,800 - 10,500 RPM, with soft start for smooth start-ups. Labyrinth construction seals and protects the motor and bearings from dust and debris 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. The 9565PCV is engineered with SJS™, an innovation from Makita that protects the gears by automatically disengaging the motor should the grinding wheel accidentally catch or bind.

Comfort and Ergonomics


The 9565PCV weighs only 5.3 lbs. and is built with comfort and ergonomic features for extended use. In addition, the side handle can be easily installed on either side of the tool as well as the top, and the “tool-less” wheel guard adjustment provides easy clamping. The large paddle switch with lock-off is designed for more comfortable operation.


Versatile Design for a Range of Applications

The 9565PCV is a versatile and powerful grinder engineered for demanding applications including cutting, ferrous metal, paint and rust removal, shipyard maintenance, heavy machinery, metal polishing, general steel grinding, auto repair work, cutting brick and masonry, and restoration work. The grinder is built for welders, fabricators, plumbers, masons, electricians, automotive technicians, stone and tile workers, HVAC, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class industrial quality angle grinder.
