New Variable Speed Die Grinder From Metabo Features Industry's First Spindle Lock For Easy Operation
West Chester, PA, March 26, 2002 - A new variable speed 2" die grinder that greatly simplifies the procedure required to change accessories has been introduced by Metabo. While other tools require two wrenches to change accessories, the GE700 has a spindle lock, so only one wrench is needed on the collet.
The new grinder is extremely flexible, featuring an extended spindle ideal for operation in confined areas and Metabo's Vario-Constamatic (VC) full-wave electronic speed control. The VC speed control allows users to vary speed to accommodate a variety of accessories, including flap wheels, carbide burs, abrasive cut-off wheels, and mounted points. This makes the tool useful for grinding and cutting a wide range of materials, from hard to soft, including plastic.
The GE700 has a hardened and ground 1/4" collet for accurate balance of fitted attachments, and auto-stop carbon brushes that increase brush life while preventing motor damage that can be caused by worn brushes. The power switch is ergonomically located on the top of the tool, making it easy to operate for both right- and left-handed users.
The grinder has a no-load speed of 7,000-27,000 rpm and is rated at 6.2 amps, 710 watts. A collet wrench, spindle wrench, and the 1/4" collet are all offered as standard with the GE700.
