Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has introduced the new WP780 4 1/2" angle grinder with a non-locking paddle switch. The WP780's 'Deadman' function increases user safety by turning the grinder off automatically when its trigger is released or the tool is dropped.

Built to withstand rugged operating conditions including edge grinding, deburring, weld grinding, metal removal and tile cutting, the WP780 features a robust, 7.2 A motor with 780 watts of power, 14 inch-lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 11,000 rpm.

Weighing just 4.7 pounds, this lightweight grinder is ideal for overhead applications or ones that require the operator to reach. Its slim motor housing design and ergonomic 15 degree offset side handle make this grinder more comfortable to use than other grinders on the market. The WP780 includes a non-locking paddle switch and auto-stop carbon brushes.

Additionally, the WP780 includes a burst-proof wheel guard meeting the latest international standards.

The new grinder comes standard with an inner flange, face spanner and outer nut. Optional equipment for the WP780 includes a Type 1 cut-off wheel guard and carrying case, as well as Metabo's wide range of abrasives. The WP780 is also covered by Metabo's XXL warranty. This free warranty extends the normal one year power tool warranty to three years.
