This angle grinder delivers more power than previous-generation models – 13 amps and 9,300 RPM. The grinder has constant electronic circuitry for soft startups, smooth operation and dependable speed under load. For longer tool life, it has directed air flow that diverts dust away from vital components, and it has direct-motor cooling, giving it higher overload capabilities. It features a two-position vibration control side handle, making it less fatiguing for the operator to use. For safety, it has an integrated acceleration sensor to limit inadvertent recoil and restart protection to protect against unintended startup. It has a burst-protection quick toolless adjustable guard and a large spindle lock for a more convenient disc change. The service minderbrushes stop the grinder when preventative maintenance is required.
