Original Press Release:
Metabo's New Angle Grinder with Electronic Speed Stabilization Ideal for Heavy Operating Conditions
WEST CHESTER, Pa. February 2009 - 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 WE9-125 Quick 5" angle grinder built with Metabo's vario constamatic (VC) electronic speed stabilization. This makes the grinder ideal for heavy operating conditions such as grinding, cutting and finishing granite, marble or concrete as well as grinding and finishing metals.
Metabo's VC electronics constantly monitor the current in the motor adding voltage as load increases, keeping the tool running at optimum speed. A soft start feature extends longevity of both the motor windings and gears. The WE9-125 Quick grinder also incorporates Metabo's 'CoolFlow' technology with repositioned carbon brushes for unrestricted airflow and a fan that pulls 35% more air through the tool to keep it running cooler during operation significantly extending tool life. In addition, the grinder features an aluminum die-cast housing to help with heat dissipation and provide increased durability.
Safety features include a tool-less guard adjustment, spindle lock and an "S-Automatic" safety slip clutch to protect the operator from kickback by absorbing the torque created if the wheel would bind or snag. A power interruption protection feature prevents restart in the event that power is lost to the tool and the switch remains in the on position, protecting the operator from injury or work surfaces from damage when power is restored.
The grinder features a robust Metabo 'LongLife' motor and offers 950 W of power and 22 inch-lbs of torque. The motor and other essential components are protected from harmful dust and debris with double-lipped labyrinth sealed bearings, a unique winding protection grid and epoxy coated field coil windings. This high level of protection extends the motor's 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 its excellent balance, allows the operator to hold the tool longer, resulting in fatigue-free operation.
