Metabo Corporation (West Chester, PA) announces two new Variable Speed High Torque Dry Polishers: the PE 15-20 RT and PE 15-30, made in Germany. A key target market for the Extra High-Torque Dry Polisher with Rat-tail (PE 15-20 RT) is the automotive/paint finishing market, while the High-Torque Dry Polisher (PE 15-30) has been created for heavy duty applications, like stone and concrete polishing. Also, because of its speed range, the PE 15-30 can also be used for stainless-steel polishing. Specifically:
- The Extra High-Torque Variable Speed Dry Polisher with Rat-tail (PE 15-20 RT) has a no-load speed of 3001,900 rpm, 133 in-lbs. of torque and 13 Amps. The position of the rat-tail handle combined with soft hand grip and rubberized cover allows for maximum ergonomic comfort for day-long polishing of metal.
- The High-Torque Variable Speed Dry Polisher (PE 15-30) has a no-load speed of 800-3,000 rpm with 13 Amps. This tool includes an adjustable loop handle for optimal control.
The PE 12-20 RT and PE 15-30 include VTC electronics (vario-tacho-constamatic) - Metabo’s exclusive technology that maintains RPM under load. It both protects the end-user and extends the life of the tool. Both tools also have overload protection, which keeps the motor from overheating, prolonging tool life. A soft start feature allows for smooth start-up.
