Metabo Corp. now offers a compact, lightweight 5-inch Angle Grinder Surface Prep Kit for grinding in smaller areas and on vertical applications. The new system includes a Metabo WE14-125 Plus variablespeed small angle grinder and a dust-control shroud. The kit is ideal for heavyduty grinding and finishing of concrete floors and walls as well as concrete countertops.
The WE14-125 Plus angle grinder included with the kit features a lock-on switch, encapsulated auto-stop carbon brushes and switch, a quick wheel-change system, an antivibration side handle, electronic speed stabilization, electronic soft start and a unique dust-deflecting winding protection grid to protect the motor and internal components. Safety features include a toolless guard adjustment, spindle lock and “S-Automatic” safety slip clutch to protect the operator from kickback by absorbing the torque created if the wheel binds or snags. Power interruption protection prevents restart in the event that power is lost.
With a 12.2-amp motor, the small angle grinder offers 1,400 watts of power, 29.2 inch-pounds of torque and a variable, no-load speed of 7,000 rpm to 10,500 rpm.
When used with a vacuum such as the Metabo ASR 2050, the Surface Prep Kit helps protect users from silica dust exposure.
