About Makita’s Super Joint System (SJS)
Super Joint System (SJS) is an innovation from Makita engineering where the motor armature and spiral bevel gear are linked by a coil spring. If the grinding wheel catches or binds, the coil spring relaxes and disengages the gears from the motor. As the grinding wheel stops, the gears and motor are protected. Makita’s growing line of SJS-equipped grinders includes models ranging from a 1/4-inch die grinder to a 7-inch angle grinder.
