Sellersville, PA, United States, 2009/05/06 - Metabo Corporation has introduced the new 5” WB 11-125 Compact Class Angle Grinder with advanced disc braking technology, making it one of the safest grinders currently available.
Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has introduced the new 5” WB 11-125 Quick Compact Class Angle Grinder with advanced disc braking technology, making it one of the safest grinders currently available. When used with grinding discs, the brake stops the tool in less than three seconds, and in less than 1.5 seconds with thin cutting discs.
This lightweight grinder, weighing 6 pounds and measuring only 13 inches, features a secure “racket” grip and dual grip zones for comfortable, ergonomic handling and additional user safety. The tool’s anti-vibration side handle absorbs up to 60% of the vibration and, coupled with excellent balance, allows the operator to hold the tool longer, resulting in fatigue-free operation.
The tool offers additional safety features including a tool-less guard adjustment, spindle lock and an “S-Automatic” safety slip clutch to help protect the operator from kickback by absorbing the torque created if the wheel would bind or snag.
The WB 11-125 offers a sonically-balanced fan for optimum cooling and better air flow over the motor. The double-lipped labyrinth sealed bearings, a unique winding protection grid and epoxy coated windings also protect the motor and other essential components from harmful dust and debris, extending motor life up to five times that of competitive models.
The WB 11-125 is constructed of a low-profile aluminum die-cast gear housing and features a 9.6 amp motor with 1,100 watts of power, 26.9 inch-lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 10,000 RPM. The Quick tool-less wheel change system saves time when replacing wheels for increased operator efficiency.
