Large angle grinders include safety mechanical brake

June 3, 2020 - Metabo Corp. adds to their line of “World’s First” corded large angle grinders with safety brakes.

Metabo offers two 7 in. electronic grinders with safety brake and a 9 in. version. All made in Germany. Models: 7 in. WEPB 24-180, 7 in. Compact WEPB 19-180 RT DS (drop secure model) and 9 in. WEPB 24-230 MVT.

“Safety is an integral part of Metabo’s philosophy, so introducing these large grinders with safety brakes was just a natural progression. They complete our lineup of 4-1/2 in., 5 in. and 6 in. safety grinders, corded and cordless”, said Terry Tuerk, Metabo’s senior product manager.

The 7 in. and 9 in. safety brake grinders stop the wheel in 2.5 seconds of releasing the paddle switch, significantly reducing the risk of injury in the event the operator loses control of the tool, and eliminating the need to ‘stub out’ the wheel to stop it. Keeping the end user's safety in mind, other safety features of these tools include a non-locking paddle switch and an electronic clutch, which helps protect the user against kickback if the wheel binds, soft start, and a tool-free adjustable guard.

All three grinders have high torque and LongLife 15.0 Amp motors and include electronic overload protection with LED warning to protect the motor from damage in heavy use, prolonging the tools life. The WEPB 19-180 RT DS (drop secure) 7 in. grinder has an attachment point for a lanyard when used at height. The WEPB 24-180 MTV has a 7 in. wheel diameter and a no-load speed of 8,500 - ideal for weld seam prep and beveling work. The WEPB 24-230 has a 9” wheel diameter and a no-load speed of 6,600 - for covering a larger surface area when grinding and adding extra depth capacity for cutting. Additional features of the tools include; 3 position anti-vibration side handle and a 3-position Metabo MVT vibration dampened back handle for comfort in both cutting or grinding applications.
