New Makita Grinders with X-LockThe new Makita X-LOCK Angle Grinders offer an innovative accessory quick-change system. X-LOCK is a locking mechanism that makes tool-less accessory changes up to five times faster than traditional threaded locknut mounting.

The Makita X-LOCK system enables workers to get back to cutting, grinding, or prepping faster, ultimately saving time and money.

  • QUICK CHANGE: Minimizes downtime between accessory changes with no parts to lose
  • TOOL-LESS SYSTEM: Easy click-mount and release level for tool-less accessory changes
  • BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE: Most X-LOCK wheels are compatible with standard 7/8-in. arbors.



The click-mount and pull-release lever make changing accessories easy and up to five times faster than traditional threaded locknut mounting.

Pre-installation: Pull lever all the way back to unlock

Click-mount: Push wheel to attach

Quick-release: Pull lever up to release wheel.



With X-LOCK, changing accessories is tool-less and eliminates the possibility of over- or under-tightening the threaded lock spindles. Ultimately, that means no searches for wrenches or locknuts and less time wasted.


Most X-LOCK accessories also work with standard angle grinders with 7/8-in. arbors. Therefore, only one set of premium accessories is necessary for most of the angle grinders on the job site. However, X-LOCK grinders are only compatible with X-LOCK accessories.

Available Models:

Grinding performance is delivered with the Makita 18V LXT® Brushless 4-1/2” / 5” Paddle Switch X-LOCK Angle Grinder with AFT® (tool only: XAG26Z). The XAG26Z is ideal for grinding and cutting materials including tile, concrete, pipe, conduit, and more.

This grinder is powered by a Makita-built brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The BL™ Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. Active Feedback-sensing Technology (AFT®) turns the motor off if rotation speed suddenly slows or the wheel is forced to a stop.
