Two safer angle grinders from Metabo

Metabo Corp. has introduced two new angle grinders that are designed to stop wheel rotation in two seconds or less when the “deadman” safety switch is released, greatly reducing the likelihood of injuries. The mechanical brake system also stops thin cutting wheels in one second or less.

Ideal for heavy-duty grinding and cutting applications, the WEPBA14-125 Quick and WEPBA14-150 Quick both feature 1,400 watts of power. The WEPBA14-125 Quick offers a no- load speed of 10,000 rpm and a maximum wheel diameter of 5 inches. The WEPBA14-150 Quick provides a no-load speed of 9,000 rpm and a maximum wheel diameter of 6 inches.
