Among new angle grinders from Metabo Corp. is the 4 1/2-inch/5-inch WA11-125 Quick small angle grinder.
The WA11-125 Quick small angle grinder features a unique autobalance system that extends both tool and wheel life while making the grinder safer and more comfortable to use. Metabo’s new technology replaces the traditional backing flange with an autobalancing flange pressed onto the spindle.
Ideal for cutting and grinding applications, the WA11-125 Quick features a long-lasting 9.6-amp motor and a no-load speed of 10,000 rpm. It delivers 1,100 watts of power and 26.9 inch-pounds of torque. The grinder weighs just 5.9 pounds. Metabo’s Quick toolless wheel-change system saves time and energy when replacing wheels.
Also, Metabo Corp. has upgraded its 7-inch Angle Grinder Surface Prep Kit to include the new W24-230 large angle grinder as well as the standard 7-inch dust control shroud and optional vacuum. In addition to 17 percent more torque than the previous kit’s grinder, the tool offers improved ergonomics and better airflow, making it ideal for large-area concrete surface grinding applications.
The W24-230 has a rated speed of 6,600 rpm and a loaded speed of 4,600 rpm and delivers a total of 150 inch-pounds of torque and 2,400 watts of power. The 7-inch dust control shroud opens easily to allow operators to work flush against a wall.
