T.C. Service Introduces new TOP CAT® Model 520RA Right-Angle Grinder
WILLOUGHBY, OHIO - July 2002 - T. C. Service Company has recently introduced the TOP CAT® Model 520RA right-angle grinder. The American-made, pneumatic tool is designed for grinding, sanding and high-speed material removal, as well as for cutting in construction applications.
With its 1,500-watt, 2-horsepower motor and rated speeds of 4,000 to 8,000 RPM, the new grinder has plenty of power to perform heavy-duty, industrial grinding. Yet, it runs extremely quiet with low vibration. Early in-house testing has shown that noise and vibrations levels are below recommended ISO exposure limits.
The 520RA is available in Type 27/Type 28 configurations with a 7" (180 mm) or 9" (230 mm) grinding wheel. It is also a Type 01 cutoff tool with an available 10" (250 mm) cutoff wheel guard; as well as a sander with a 5" (125 mm), 7" (180 mm) or 9" (235 mm) sanding pad.
Features include spiral-bevel gears for longer tool life; small-diameter heads for better access to the work areas; a throttle-type safety lever; indexable guard; comfort handle grip; built-in handle isolator; and a push-button spindle lock for quick change-over.
Weighing just 7.7 lbs. (3.5 Kg), and with an overall length of 15" (375 mm), the 520RA is an ergonomically designed, portable, hand-held power tool. Other specifications are as follows: head height over spindle-3.9" (99 mm); working air consumption-40 cfm (18.9 L/S); air inlet size-1/2" NPT (1/2" BPT available); hose size recommendation-1/2" (13 mm); and arbor size-5/8" x 11".
Standard equipment for the 7" and 9" grinder includes the tool itself; a choice of wheel guard and sanding pad; and instruction manual. The 10" cutoff tool includes the tool, flanges, a wrench and an instruction manual. Other sanding pads and depressed center wheel kits are available as options.
