More Power. Better Control. Hilti 500-D, 600-P Angle Grinders
TULSA, Okla. - February 24, 2006 - The first angle grinders equipped with Hilti's unique Smart Power(TM) system and Active Torque Control (ATC), the new 5-inch DEG 500-D, and 6-inch DEG 600-D and DEG 600-P provide virtually unrivaled power and control. For high performance, the DEG 500-D, 600-D and 600-P feature Smart Power(TM), which maintains a constant level of grinding speed for less wear and tear on the 1400 watt motor. A low-profile gear case provides better access in tight areas and, if power is interrupted, a restart interlock helps prevent accidental starts. For added operator protection, the ATC function interrupts the electrical current into the tool in a fraction of a second to reduce unwanted kickback if a sticking disk causes the tool body to move too quickly. The DEG 500-D, 600-D and 600-P also feature a side handle with a soft grip, which absorbs 30 percent of the vibration, as well as a multi-finger two-position switch and slim, easy-to-grip "rat tail" design for improved comfort and handling. Hilti also offers a complete selection of diamond blades, cup wheels, abrasives and wire brushes suited for most cutting, grinding and finishing applications on concrete, masonry and metal base materials. Under Hilti's Lifetime Service, the DEG 500-D, 600-D and 600-P will be serviced quickly and reliably, if needed, with no additional cost for one year. During the lifetime repair cost limit, which begins after the one-year no cost period, the tool will have a maximum repair cost of no greater than 30 percent of the list price of a new tool. Once the tool is repaired, it receives an additional six months of no cost service. The lifetime manufacturer's warranty covers the tool against manufacturer defects for the life of the tool.* Lifetime Service includes the tool's transportation to and from a Hilti repair center, maintenance service, repair and replacement of all worn out or defective parts, functional testing and adjustment and safety check after any repair.
