New Angle Grinders from Metabo Increase Productivity, Reduce Operator Fatigue


W720 and W820 ideal for metalworking applications


WEST CHESTER, Pa. - Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, now offers two new powerful, lightweight angle grinders for cutting, grinding and deburring.  The W720 and W820 are ideal for use in the repair, maintenance and metalworking industries.


The W720 weighs just 4.4 lbs and has a maximum wheel diameter of 4-1/2”. It features a robust 6.5 A motor with 720 watts of power, 14 inch-lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 11,000 rpm.


Metabo’s W820 has a maximum wheel diameter of 5” and weighs just 4.7 lbs.  This new grinder features a robust 7.5 A motor with 820 watts of power, 16-inch lbs of torque and a no-load speed of 10,000 rpm.


Both grinders feature Metabo’s classic design with slim motor housing and ergonomic side handle, making it comfortable and easy to use throughout the day, especially in overhead applications.


A side switch with lock on capability, a spindle lock, auto-stop carbon brushes and a burst-proof wheel guard come standard on both grinders.  The W720 and W820 also include an inner flange, a face spanner, an outer nut and a Type-27 wheel guard.


A Type-1 cut-off wheel, carrying case and a variety of abrasives are sold separately.


As with all of Metabo’s grinders, both the W720 and W820 are covered by Metabo’s XXL warranty.  This free warranty extends the standard one year power tool warranty to three years.
