New angle-grinder kits from Metabo

Metabo Corp. is now offering an Angle Grinder Surface Prep Kit in both 5 inches and 7 inches. The 5-inch system includes a Metabo WE14- 125 Plus variable-speed small angle grinder and a dust control shroud that protects users from harmful dust generated during surface grinding applications. The 7-inch system includes a Metabo W23-230 large angle grinder and a dust control shroud. Both can be used with an optional vacuum, such as the Metabo ASR 2050. The Surface Prep Kit helps protect users from silica dust exposure in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. Both shrouds are made from virgin polyurethane and open with ease, allowing operators to work into corners. Molded vacuum ports in the shroud allow vacuum connections for 2 1/4 inches internally and 2 1/2 inches externally. A punched relief hole prevents vacuum lock. The 5-inch kit has a 12.2-amp motor, 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. The 7-inch kit features a 15-amp motor, 2,300 watts of power, 150 inch-pounds of torque and a no-load speed of 6,600 rpm. The optional ASR 2050 quiet-operation vacuum that can be used in conjunction with the Surface Prep Kit ensures added safety and protection. The heavy-duty vacuum has a soft start and comes complete with easily changed pleated polyester filter cassettes, automatic filter cleaning, extra-large rear wheels and industrial front swivel casters. ?
