DEWALT announces the launch of its new 4 ½-inch Small Angle Grinders with brake ideal for professionals 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 new grinders feature a Lanyard Ready Connection, which allows users to utilize a lanyard to tether the grinder to rigid structures at jobsites, and brake that stops the wheel 50 percent faster on average than DWE402 model with DW4541 abrasive wheel.
Key improvements include an E-CLUTCH™ that activates in less than a tenth of a second when a wheel pinch/stall event is detected. A new motor platform has been developed yielding 40 percent more copper than the motor on the D28402, upgrading the grinder to 11 amps and adding another 200 max watts of output power. Average temp rises have also been reduced compared to the D28402 and the body circumference is still smaller than competitors’ models.
