Alpha Professional Tools upgrades their pneumatic polisher with no price change

Effective March 1, 2015, Alpha Professional Tools will discontinue the AIR-658 Pneumatic Polisher. This model has been upgraded to the AIR-680 Pneumatic Polisher. As with the AIR-658, the AIR-680 is a high-performance, pneumatic polishing tool with a central water-fed distribution system that produces the highest quality finishes. It has a maximum speed of 4,000 RPM, consumes 15 CFM and requires 85 PSI. With a 5/8-inch-11 spindle, the AIR-680 is lightweight and ergonomically designed.

The Alpha AIR-680 has several new features, including the Flexzilla Air and Water Hoses which are flexible down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit and are now 15 feet long. An easy access Oil Port allows for convenient maintenance while a heavy-duty wrench provides quick accessory changes.

The polisher utilizes a full-size bottle of AIR-008 (8 ounces or 237 milliliters) and includes a new exhaust hose clamping system. The price for the polisher has not changed.

Alpha will continue to service and repair the AIR-658 and sell spare parts to support the units that have already been sold. The majority of the AIR-680 parts are the same as the AIR-658. In addition, although the AIR-658 has been discontinued, existing tools can be retrofitted (with new union fittings) with the new Flexzilla Air and Water hoses.

Alpha Professional Tools provides products for cutting, drilling, shaping and polishing all types of materials. Alpha Professional Tools also offers a variety of services to support their products.
