Ideal for cutting and grinding metal and concrete, Metabo’s new angle grinder features a long-lasting 9.6 A motor with 1,100 watts of power, 26.9 inch-lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 10,000 rpm.

The WP11-125 Quick’s toolless wheel change system makes changing wheels safe and easy, while increasing operator efficiency. Other safety features of the new grinder include a toolless Quick positioning burst-proof guard with seven positions, a spindle lock, the Metabo “S-Automatic” safety slip clutch that helps to protect the operator from tool kickback should the wheel bind or snag, and a dead-man function that immediately turns the grinder off if it is dropped.

The WP11-125 Quick’s dust protection system is one of the most effective on the market. It includes an encapsulated on/off switch and auto-stop carbon brushes, double-lipped labyrinth sealed bearings, Metabo’s unique dust-deflecting winding protection grid and epoxy coated field coil windings.

Weighing 5.6 lbs, this new lightweight angle grinder has a secure ‘racket’ grip design with dual grip zones for comfortable handling. The tool’s anti-vibration, two-position side handle absorbs up to 60% of the vibration, allowing the operator to hold the tool longer, resulting in less fatigue.

An optional carrying case is available for the WP11-125.
