WEST CHESTER, Pa. June 2008 - 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 W8-115Quick angle grinder, featuring "cool flow" 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.
With Metabo's optimum cooling technology, the new W8-115Quick angle grinder is ideal for the toughest applications, such as cutting and grinding metal or concrete. The 4-½" angle grinder 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.

Weighing only 6.2 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.

In addition, the tool offers safety features including 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.
