Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has added a new large angle grinder to its Metabo Metal Masters series. The W24-230 is ideal for cutting and grinding metal safely and efficiently.

The W24-230 comes equipped with a 9" wheel guard and delivers 150 inch-lbs of torque. This large angle grinder is one of the most efficient on the market with a rated speed of 6,600 rpm and loaded speed of 4,600 rpm. The tool features 2,400 watts of power and is rated at 15 A. Its robust Marathon motor extends the tool's service life up to five times over other grinders in its class.

The new angle grinder features Metabo's VibraTech (MVT) three-position side handle that significantly reduces vibration levels up to 60%. The grinder's ergonomic rear handle includes a vibration dampening system and pivots 90 degrees left or right for comfort during cutting or vertical grinding, while reducing user fatigue.

The W24-230 includes a simplified on/off switch with a safety lock-out switch that protects against unintentional start, a burst-proof guard with seven positions and a spindle lock. A newly designed diagonal fan pulls air across the grinder's motor for cooler operation, higher efficiency and increased reliability through optimum heat dissipation.

The new grinder also features a double winding protection grid, auto-stop carbon brushes and toolless wheel guard. The tool weighs just 12.8 lbs.
