Next week the Coptool Team will be at World of Concrete and will for sure be spending some time with our friends at Metabo. They send us a teaser in the press release below and looks like they’ve got some interesting new tools coming. Most interested in checking out the full line up of Brushless (corded) SDS-Max Rotary Hammers. We’ve heard some great things about them already and while everything is going cordless there is still a good reason to want your large rotary hammer to have a plug.
Their super popular vacuum ASR 35 ACP HEPA is getting upgraded from 130 CFM to 157 CFM which is good news but not as good as the fact that the current model is being blown out for $349 US American dollars down from $599!!! They’ll be gone fast at that price and really all you need for OSHA Table 1 compliance for 5″ grinding and cutting.
Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade cordless and corded hand-held power tools and accessories announces they will be at booth O30426 at World of Concrete 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. World of Concrete is an annual trade show for the commercial concrete construction and masonry construction industries.
“We are excited for another show this year and the opportunity to engage with our distributors and end-users. Our focus will naturally be our OSHA compliant dust collection systems followed by safety features and our range of concrete / masonry system offerings and how they differ from the competition and solve an array of problems the end-user may encounter. We are also very excited to introduce our new range of SDS-Max rotary hammers that shows significant improvement in drilling speed, tool life and affordability”, said Antoine Derché, Metabo’s Director of Product and Marketing.
This past year Metabo’s ASR 35 ACP HEPA Vacuum was rated “industry leader in small-sized vacuums”. Now the ASR 35 ACP HEPA is even more powerful with 157 CFM, a 20% increase in air-flow, which allows the vacuum to run larger tools (e.g., not just a 4-1/2″/5” grinder, but also a 6″ grinder). The key to this vacuum is its automatic filter cleaning system with electromagnetic shakers. “Unlike competitive systems that have reverse air flow, Metabo’s vacuum shakes the filters with an electromagnetic system and maintains full suction during the cleaning cycle. Competitive vacuums with “reverse flow” lose suction during their cleaning cycle allowing dust to escape. Also, with Metabo, you don’t hear a loud “cleaning noise” every few seconds, Metabo’s vacuum only cleans when it senses a drop-in pressure,” said Terry Tuerk, Metabo’s Senior Product Manager.
Introduced this year at the World of Concrete, the new range of SDS-Max hammers will be released to the public in February for the KH 5-40 (1-9/16” capacity) and in May for the others. The KHEV 5-40 BL (1-9/16” capacity), the KHEV 8-45 BL (1-3/4” capacity) and the KHEV 11-52 BL (2-1/16” capacity) all feature an exclusive brushless AC motor that offers unmatchable service life, built-in counter mass for the most efficient anti-vibration and speed stabilization for fastest drilling speed. The new brushless tools provide more power and longer runtime, as well as increase the tools life while decreasing tool maintenance. Stop by the Metabo booth to check out these new additions to our already comprehensive line of concrete and masonry solutions.
The RSEV 19-125 RT is a compact and lightweight grinder specifically engineered for concrete and stonework. This heavy-duty concrete grinder has a powerful 15 amp motor. The RSEV 19-125 RT can also remove tile/mastic in an instant when paired with Metabo’s PCD cup wheel. It also includes a sturdy aluminum die-cast shroud and gear flange for longer service life. The flip-up guard allows the tool to grind flush against walls.
The AS 18 L PC HEPA Vacuum will also be featured at this year’s show. The AS 18 L PC HEPA is a small and powerful 18V cordless vacuum with 74 CFM, perfect for working with cordless hammer drills or combined with Metabo’s dustless SDS drill bits. It has dual power settings; an eco-mode for extended runtime and boost for powerful suction. The AS 18 L PC HEPA Vacuum has 74 CFM and can hold 2 gallons of dry materials.
Metabo’s High Powered Wall Chaser (MFE 40) has a no-load speed of 5,000 RPM derived from its unique planetary double gear reduction, which makes easy work of cutting channels into plaster or concrete (up to 1-9/16” deep and 3/8” – 1-3/8” wide) for the installation of wiring, conduit or pipe. As most of Metabo tools, the MFE 40 has several safety features to help protect the tool and user. Dust free work is achieved by the die cast aluminum cover with 1-¼” vacuum connection. The wall chaser includes the soft start feature which allows for smooth start-up and restart protection, this prevents the tool from starting on its own in the event of a power interruption. It also includes an LED light that signals if the tool is in danger of overloading.
The 5” Concrete Grinder (WE 15-125 HD Set GED) is ideal for grinding concrete indoors or outdoors and its shroud can easily hook up to either of Metabo HEPA vacuums.
The WE 15-125 HD Set GED has a no-load speed of 9,600 rpm and 13.5 Amps. It has overload protection, which keeps the motor from overheating, prolonging the tools life and the soft start feature allows for smooth start-up. The concrete grinder also has restart protection, which prevents the tool from starting on its own in the event of power interruption. Included with the grinder is an aggressive, long life 5” diamond cup.
The 5” Masonry Cutting / Scoring Grinder (W 12-125 Set CED Plus) with Guide Rollers makes precise cuts in concrete (up to 1-1/16” deep) while minimizing concrete dust. The anti-static shroud can be hooked up to a HEPA vacuum easily making it OSHA compliant. It has a no-load speed of 9,600 rpm, and 10.5 Amps and includes a 5” diamond cutting wheel. The W 12-125 Set CED Plus includes s-automatic safety slip clutch, which helps prevent kickback if the wheel jams.
Metabo offers a wide variety of accessory add-ons for dustless grinding and cutting to fit their leading range of small and large angle grinders. For example, they offer a 7” Convertible Cutting Shroud, this attaches to a large grinder then it can be connected to an HEPA vacuum for concrete surface preparation to help minimize dust.
