August 2022 – West Chester, PA Metabo Corporation, a leading German international manufacturer of professional-grade cordless and corded hand-held power tools and accessories in the US, introduces their new M-Brush Technology Grinders. “We are excited to announce three new angle grinder models, the WEP 19-150 Quick M-Brush, WEPBA 19-125 Quick Drop Secure M-Brush and WEPBA 19-150 Quick Drop Secure M-Brush. Each new angle grinder comes with patent pending M-Brush Technology, “The service-free carbon brush”.M-Brush Technology saves the end-user from changing carbon brushes two times and extends thecarbon brush lifetime by three times. These grinders are made for intensive end-users who operate anglegrinders in production environments; boilermakers, ironworkers, production welders and fabricators”, saidTerry Tuerk, Metabo’s Senior Product Manager.
Each of the angle grinders feature a powerful 1900 watt and 14.5-amp motor with a newly optimized armature for increased power and faster heat dissipation. In addition, safety features include Metabo’s exclusive S-Automatic Safety Slip Clutch as well as electronic cut out and a non-locking, ergonomic paddle switch design for added safety and comfort. Metabo’s TC (Tacho-Constamatic) electronic offers speed stabilization for maximized productivity, soft start for easier handling, and overload protection for longer motor service life. The well-known Metabo Quick System is also included with these grinders. The Quick System provides tool free wheel change at the push of a button. Each angle grinder also has an offset 2-position anti-vibration side handle and quick positioning guard with 7 detents for safe use in any grinding or cutting position.
The 6” WEP 19-150 Quick M-Brush (613111420) has a no-load speed of 9,600 RPM. This grinder comes with a standard guard and a clip-on type 1 cutting wheel guard, for OSHA compliance when using type 1 cutting wheels.
The 5” WEPBA 19-125 Quick DS M-Brush (613114420) has a no-load speed of 11,000 RPM, while the 6” WEPBA 19-150 Quick DS M-Brush (613117420) no-load speed is 9,600 RPM.
These two angle grinders include auto-balance technology. The auto-balance system decreases tool vibration by 50%, increasing the tool and wheel lifetime, while reducing the risk of “white finger syndrome”. The WEPBA 19-125/150 models have Mechanical Safety Brakes, this feature stops the wheel in 2.5 seconds or less when releasing the paddle switch, significantly reducing the risk of injury in the event the end-user loses control of the tool.
Lastly, the angle grinders include a “DS drop secure” attachment point for a lanyard, this can be used when working at height to help prevent injury or property damage from a falling tool.
