Les Clayes sous Bois, France - July 6, 2009 Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in automotive and industrial tools and equipment, has released two new die grinders, the GR25 and GS25 and one grinder, the GC25.
With a weight of 1.25 kg and a maximum speed of 27 500 revolutions per minute, they offer the highest rotational speed to weight ratio on the market. They are intended for the automotive body work, metalwork, building and locksmith industries.
The new cordless grinder range includes three products: GR25 for car body shops, GS25 for light industries (surface grinding before welding, small sheet metal or cable cutting, locksmith needs, metalwork, etc) and GC25 for all applications. Each of the grinders features the patent-pending IQv Grip twist-to-lock mounting that grips the battery into the tool for the strongest, most secure design available. They are also compatible with all 14.4V IQv batteries.
They are equipped with an optimized high performance 0.35hp motor that delivers impressive power exceeding most pneumatic die grinders. They include advanced gearing for leading durability - the same proven angle head and collar as Ingersoll Rand pneumatic die grinders. They also have an exclusive motor control that extends the tool life by preventing motor damage from heat or stalling. The variable speed function has a safety lock that provides speed control while preventing inadvertent tool starts.
