The G12VA 4-1/2" 13-Amp angle grinder features over 1,500 Watts of power. This grinder utilizes zero voltage restart protection that prevents it from restarting if power is temporarily lost while the tool is in operation. Electronic overload protection shuts the motor off in case of a bind or overload. It also features a variable speed switch to set the RPMs to suit the application, as well as an anti-vibration handle, kick-back reduction, a tool-less wheel guard that can be removed if the job calls for it, and a low-profile, compact design which also allows it to fit into tight spaces. Recommended uses include surface finishing, rust and paint removal, light grinding, concrete finishing, wire cup and wire wheel applications.
