Metabo’s New Versatile 6″ Dual Random Orbit Sander Enables Quick Changes Between Fine Finishing and Heavy Duty Stock Removal

December 3, 2008

WEST CHESTER, Pa., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ – Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, now offers a 6″ random orbit sander that easily switches from fast stock removal to fine finishing at the touch of a button. The new SXE450 TurboTec offers from 8,400 to 22,000 orbits per minute at an adjustable orbit size of either 1/8″ for fine finishing or 1/4″ for stock removal.

With this adjustable oscillating circuit system and the SXE450 TurboTec’s additional TurboBoost that delivers added power on-demand for heavy duty sanding, the versatile tool is ideal for a variety of wood, plastic, sheet metal and non-ferrous metal applications that require exceptional performance in the fast removal of stock as well as in fine finishing and polishing. Available on any pre-selected speed, TurboBoost provides up to 16 percent more stock removal than other sanders in its class. In addition, the robust die cast aluminum bearing housing and dust-proof bearings ensure a long life.

Metabo’s SXE450 TurboTec’s lightweight and comfortable handle design makes it appealing to users. The rubber handle ensures a secure grip and dampens vibration for added comfort, while a removable front handle enables the user to guide the tool precisely with minimal effort. The sander has a 3.4 amp motor, weighs just 5.75 pounds and is 11-1/2″ long. Variospeed (V) electronics, controlled via a thumbwheel, enable infinitely variable speed changes up to the tool’s rated load of 8,000 rpm per minute.

The integral dust collection system that comes standard with this tool uses a highly-efficient, washable Intec filter, reducing the need for frequent filter replacement. A vacuum hose can also be attached. The sander comes complete with a Velcro faced-backing pad, hexagon key and assorted sanding paper and an optional carrying case is available.
