DEWALT Launches New 4-1/2″ Small Angle Grinder with One-Touch Guard

DEWALT DWE4011 4-1/2″ Angle Grinder

TOWSON, Md. (September 18, 2012) –DEWALT announces the launch of a new 4 ½” Small Angle Grinder. The new 4 ½” Small Angle Grinder is ideal for mechanical contractors, concrete repair contractors and fabricators who need to perform a variety of applications in tight spaces such as grinding and beveling steel, grinding welds, cutting pipe and steel plate and concrete surface prep.

The 4 ½” Angle Grinder includes a 7 amp 12,000 RPM motor with long-life brushes. The grinder motor runs at low temperatures which helps keep the grinder cool for user comfort during extended use applications. The slim, ergonomic body design with a circumference smaller than 7” allows the tool to fit into tight spaces.

The One-TouchTM Guard feature is new to DEWALT’s line of grinders and allows the user to simply turn the guard to adjust its position.  This can be done without the need to push buttons or open latches for movement.  “While in manufacturing shops and on jobsites, we saw the need for the user to continually move the guard depending on the application,” said Jeremy Torok, group product manager, DEWALT.

“Our new One-TouchTM Guard feature allows the user to select the position of the guard quickly and easily with one hand without the need to adjust screws, release latches or press buttons.  The user can easily turn the guard and position it in one of the eight durable detents.”

The two-position, side-handle helps provide ease of use for both right- and left-handed users and the low-profile design allows for versatility of application usage. The grinder features DEWALT’s Quick-ChangeTM Wheel Release that allows tool-free wheel removal without the need for a wrench and the 5/8”–11 spindle thread accepts a wide range of 4-1/2” accessories.

The DWE4011 4 ½” Angle Grinder is expected to retail for approximately $59.00 and is available where DEWALT products are sold. The tools will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
