New angle grinder from Metabo

Metabo Corp. has introduced the new Stone Master WE14-125VS 5-inch angle grinder, which is built with Metabo’s VTC (Vario Tacho Constamatic) electronic speed stabilization, making the grinder ideal for grinding, cutting and finishing granite, marble or concrete countertops.

Metabo’s VTC electronics enhance productivity by constantly monitoring the rpm of the motor and adding voltage as the load increases, enabling the grinder to maintain the same rpm from no load to full-rated load. A softstart feature extends longevity of both the motor windings and gears. The WE14-125VS also incorporates Metabo’s CoolFlow technology, with repositioned carbon brushes for unrestricted airflow and a fan that pulls more air through the tool to keep it running cooler during operation. In addition, the grinder features aluminum die-cast housing to help with heat dissipation and provide increased durability.

The grinder features a Metabo LongLife motor and offers 12.2 amps and 1,400 watts of power as well as a variable speed range of 2,800 to 10,500 rpm. Safety features include a toolless guard adjustment, a spindle lock and an S-Automatic safety slip clutch to protect the operator from kickback by absorbing the torque created if the wheel binds or snags. The power-interruption protection feature prevents restart if power is lost to the tool and the switch remains in the on position. and 1,400 watts of power as well as a variable speed range of 2,800 to 10,500 rpm.
