Compact Angle Grinder
From Metabo CorporationMetabo Corporation introduces the compact W8-125 5" angle grinder that offers 11% higher productivity than similar 4 1/2"models. The grinder is ideal for finishing welded seams, rough grinding for weld preparation and sanding and cutting applications.
The W8-125 offers Metabo’s optimum cooling technology with repositioned brushes for unrestricted airflow and a fan that pulls 35% more air through the tool to keep it running cooler during operation. The tool also features an 8.0 amp motor with 800 watts of power, 19.5 in/lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 10,000 RPM.
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.
Weighing only 5.4 pounds, this lightweight grinder features a secure “racket” grip and dual grip zones for comfortable, ergonomic handling. 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 safety features including a tool-less guard adjustment, spindle lock and an “S-Automatic” safety slip clutch.
