Metabo’s New High-torque Die Grinder Features Spindle Lock

Feature makes accessory changes quick and easy

WEST CHESTER, Pa. November 2012
– Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, now offers the GE950 G Plus high torque die grinder with spindle lock and wide speed range.

The GE950 G Plus features a unique spindle lock.  This feature makes accessory changes quick and easy using a single wrench.

With its wide speed range spanning from 2,500 rpm – 8,700 rpm, the new die grinder is used for polishing and graining, sanding, deburring, edge finishing, beveling and cutting metal.

The GE950 G Plus features a robust 8.5 A LongLife motor, 950 watts of power, a rated load of 7,200 rpm and 27 inch-lbs of torque.  This new die grinder is equipped with a hardened and ground 1/4” collet to ensure accurate balance and minimized run out of the accessory.

The tool incorporates several advanced motor protection features including thermal overload protection, electronic speed stabilization and an electronic soft start to significantly extend tool life.  The GE950 G Plus also features a planetary gear drive that efficiently transfers power from the motor to the spindle and an electronic safety cutoff that protects the tool operator should the tool bind or snag.

Other safety features include a side handle that offers the user more control during sanding and finishing applications as well as a soft rubber grip that helps minimize vibration and insulates the hand from heat.

Designed for high performance, the GE950 G Plus features a die-cast aluminum gear housing, auto-stop carbon brushes, Metabo’s winding protection grid and Vario-Constamatic full-wave electronics.

This new die grinder is covered by Metabo’s XXL warranty. This free warranty extends the normal one year power tool warranty to three years.
