Dewalt has debuted two new 2-in. die grinders, the Brushless Variable Speed Paddle Switch Die Grinder with No Lock-On (DWE4997NVS) and Brushless Variable Speed Paddle Switch Die Grinder with Lock-On (DWE4997VS) for metalworking applications such as deburring, grinding, and even polishing.
Dewalt says both grinders feature 13-amp, efficient brushless motors that achieve 1,700 MWO, providing the power to get through industrial, heavy-duty applications. They each feature a variable speed dial that operates from 7,500 to 25,000 RPM and each offers a spindle lock button to allow for fast accessory changes. In addition, each grinder incorporates two bright LED lights to help illuminate dark work spaces.
The company adds a key differentiator between these two units is the No Lock-On versus Lock-On triggers.
At 4.4 lb. and 17 in. in length, both power-packed die grinders are part of the Dewalt Perform and Protect line of tools.
