New Metabo large angle grinder is safer, more efficient

Metabo Corp. has added a new large angle grinder to its Metabo Metal Masters series. The W24-230 is ideal for cutting and grinding metal safely and efficiently.

The W24-230 comes equipped with a 9-inch wheel guard and delivers 150 inch-pounds of torque. This large angle grinder has a rated speed of 6,600 rpm and loaded speed of 4,600 rpm. The tool features 2,400 watts of power and is rated at 15 amps.

The new angle grinder features Metabo’s VibraTech three-position side handle that significantly reduces vibration levels up to 60 percent. The grinder’s ergonomic rear handle includes a vibration dampening system and pivots 90 degrees left or right for comfort during cutting or vertical grinding while reducing user fatigue.

The W24-230 includes a simplified on/off switch with a safety lock-out switch that protects against unintentional start, a burst-proof guard with seven positions, and a spindle lock. A newly designed diagonal fan pulls air across the grinder’s motor for cooler operation, higher efficiency and increased reliability through optimum heat dissipation. The tool weighs just 12.8 pounds.
