Grinders Offer Improved Ergonomics


Walter Surface Technologies has introduced heavy-duty grinders, the Ironman and Ironman PS.

Designed for strenuous, prolonged use, the Ironman and Ironman PS feature an ergonomic rat-tail design, perfect balance, 1,750 watts of power, 6-inch wheel capacity, a QUICK-R instant release function, and the Walter Stabilizer that reduces vibration and extends the life and productivity of abrasives by up to 30 percent.

The Ironman PS offers the same durability and high performance as the Ironman, but with added safety features. Its “deadman” switch and mechanical brake stop grinding wheels from turning within 2 seconds of relieving the trigger, and cutting wheels within 1.5 seconds, thus minimizing workplace risks and offering users even greater safety.

“The Ironman and Ironman PS grinders are our most powerful, most productive heavy-duty grinders with 6” wheel capacity,” says Ryan Boyd, Product Manager of Tooling and Power Tools at Walter Surface Technologies. “Their physical design, power, and cutting-edge features make them the perfect tool for the most demanding jobs—and the best heavy-duty grinders in the marketplace.”

Built to meet the large-scale needs and exacting standards of the aerospace, military, naval, energy, transportation, and other industries and sectors, Ironman heavy-duty grinders can be used in a wide range of grinding and cutting operations.
