Heavy-duty grinder tool

Dewalt has introduced a high-powered grinder tool, the 60V MAX* 4.5 in. to 6 in. grinder, for cutting steel, metal pipes, rebar, steel plates and concrete.

Dewalt says the grinder features a brushless motor that maximizes runtime for demanding applications. The Grinder also is said to be a Perform & Protect tool, designed to provide a high level of tool control without sacrificing performance.

Key features of the grinder include its Kickback Brake that automatically shuts down and slows the wheel to a stop when a wheel pinch is detected. It has power equivalent to 13 Amps or 1700 MWO (as compared to the D28144) and a brake with less than two second stop time that slows the wheel when the trigger is released, the company says.

The grinder also includes a two stage trigger that reduces the chance for accidental startup. Included with the grinder kit is a 4.5 in. Type 27 and a 6 in. Type 27 Grinding Guard. With the grinder’s One-Touch Guard Compatibility, Dewalt says the user has the option to utilize a one or two-touch guard option with a simple lever adjustment.
