The Metabo WP 24-230 MVT 9″ angle grinder is designed and manufactured in Germany with a powerful 2,400 Watt, 6,600 RPM, 15.0 Amp Long-Life motor with patented dust protection. The dual-action non-locking and lock-out safety switch prevents unintentional start-up of the tool. The Metabo Vibra-Tech (MVT) side handle and integrated dampening system minimize vibration to reduce the likelihood of long-term work-related disorders of the hand and arm. The rear handle can pivot 90 degrees left or right and along with the 3-position side handle this creates one of the most ergonomic tools for any grinding or cutting application. The tool includes an adjustable guard and MVT side handle.
