Metabo Introduces the Industry’s First Flat Head Angle Grinders

Boldly Grind Where No Other Grinder Can!
WEST CHESTER, Pa. November 2013 – Metabo Corporation, a leading German manufacturer of professional grade hand-held power tools and accessories, is pleased to introduce its new family of flat head grinders.  The unique low profile design allows for easy access into confined spaces and narrow angles where standard grinders will not reach.

Building on Metabo’s commitment to create metalworking tools for specific applications, the flat head grinder features a patented gear drive that allows for a very low profile head design.  With a clearance of only 2 5/8”, the tool features a unique design that enables grinding in confined spaces and tight acute angles of up to 43°.
“Our goal is to design safe and reliable problem solving tools for professional metalworkers,” said Terry Tuerk, Senior Product Manager for Metabo USA.  “And the new flat head angle grinder is the perfect example of that commitment.  This grinder was designed specifically for working safely in tight areas where in the past a modified and highly unsafe tool would have normally been used.”
The cordless version, which is available as of November 1st, features Metabo’s new Ultra-M 5.2 Ah battery technology.  With 75% longer run time than a standard 3.0 battery, and 30% more run time than a 4.0 battery, Metabo’s new Ultra-M 5.2 battery system is ideally suited for the high demands of today’s growing industrial cordless market.  This new battery platform now allows users the ability to take the tool to the job, and provides them the power and run time to grind and finish more metal than ever before.
The corded version, available early in the first quarter of 2014, features Metabo’s patented LongLife Motor, TC Electronic Speed Stabilization and Electronic Kick Back protection. Additionally, the flat head grinder features a slim handle design for less fatigue when working on difficult to reach weld seams, as well as a 7-position locking burst proof guard.  Specially designed accessories also improve safety and production time by optimizing the tool’s power and effectiveness.
