DEWALT® Launches New Large Angle Grinders
Ideal for Steel Workers, Oil & Gas, and Bridge Fabricators
TOWSON, Md. (January 24, 2012) –DEWALT announces the launch of its new line of high performance Large Angle Grinders. The new range of Large Angle Grinders is ideal for users that include structural steel fabricators, metal fabricators, mechanical, concrete repair, oil and gas, and road and bridge contractors who perform professional applications such as grinding and beveling steel, weld cleaning, concrete surface preparation, and cutting concrete, pipe and steel plate.
Performance, durability and long life were key in the development of this new line. “The new high performance range will reset the standard for large angle grinders,” says Sean Kelly, product manager, DEWALT. “The focus for this line is on delivering the best in class combination of durability, performance, ergonomics, and user protection.” DEWALT’s patented Dust Ejection SystemTM protects the motor from damaging debris that can abrade the motor and brushes. This feature provides two times more motor life and brush life. * The Large Angle Grinders also include three features that are included within DEWALT’s Perform & Protect criteria for control and vibration: the E-Clutch® feature, which protects the user from pinch events and stalls by reducing the impulse by 75% versus the same unit without this feature; the Power Loss ResetTM feature that protects the user from accidental restarts if power is lost and then restored while the trigger is in the on position; and an anti-vibration system that includes an anti-vibration side handle, anti-vibration trigger handle, and tightly built construction that provides lower vibration levels than DEWALT’s leading competitor*.
For pipeline contractors, the PipelineTM Large Angle Grinder (DWE4559CN) includes a special gripping surface that allows the user to comfortably grip the head of the grinder, and can be used instead of the side handle in that application only.
This new range of Large Angle Grinders maximizes horsepower and minimizes weight. The new DWE4597, as one example from the range, delivers 4.9 horsepower yet only weights 12.3 lbs. When compared to its predecessor (D28494S), it’s nearly a full pound lighter yet almost a full horsepower more powerful.
DEWALT Perform & ProtectTM Power Tool Line
The new line of high performance Large Angle Grinders includes some of the many DEWALT power tools within the Perform & ProtectTM power tool line. This line meets DEWALT’s Perform & ProtectTM criteria for control and reduced vibration. See DEWALT’s complete line of Perform & ProtectTM SKUs here.
The new line of high performance Large Angle Grinders is available through distributors. The models in the line are expected to retail for approximately $149.00 – $269.00. Each model in the new line will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
