Heavy-Duty 6in Angle Grinder Lowers Vibration

Metabo now offers the 6in Wepa14-150 Quick small angle grinder, featuring an auto-balance system that is claimed to extend both tool and wheel life, while making it safer and more comfortable to use. Metabo's auto-balance technology replaces a traditional backing flange with an auto-balancing flange pressed onto the spindle. Ball bearings automatically offset out-of-balance conditions present in the grinding accessory, while the tool is in use, therefore reducing vibration.

The grinder also decreases the risk of cumulative work-related disorders - such as white-finger syndrome, minimises operator fatigue, and can potentially increase the life of a grinding disc by 50 per cent. The reduction in vibration also extends the grinders internal components longevity by up to 50 per cent. The Wepa14-150 Quick is suitable for heavy-duty cutting and grinding applications and features a long-lasting 12.2A motor. An improved and sonically balanced fan paired with improved venting and more efficient internal ducting, has increased air flow over the motor by 15 per cent, contributing to the tool's long life.

Metabo's Vibratech (MVT) side handle reduces vibration up to 60 per cent for increased user comfort over an extended work period. The Quick tool-less wheel change system saves time and energy when replacing wheels, making the operator more efficient. Other tool safety features include a non-locking paddle switch, current interruption switch, a tool-less locking wheel guard with seven positions and the Metabo S-Automatic safety slip clutch to help protect the operator from kickback by absorbing the torque created should the wheel bind or snag.

Metabo's Wepa14-150 Quick also has a dust-protection system. This system includes an encapsulated on/off switch and auto-stop carbon brushes, double-lipped labyrinth sealed bearings, Metabo's dust-deflecting winding protection grid and epoxy-coated field coil windings. The Wepa14-150 Quick also has an electronic winding temperature monitor with LED display, electronic soft-start feature and electronic speed stabilisation. Weighing 6.1lb, the grinder delivers 1,400W of power, 31in-lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 9,000rev/min.
