Metabo HPT Corded Paddle Switch Angle Grinders

Metabo HPT Corded Grinders Feature Less Maintenance and More Sustained Power

The Metabo HPT Corded Paddle Switch Grinders deliver AC-powered muscle that won’t drop off just because of an extra-long extension cord. The addition of brushless motors eliminates the maintenance that comes with armatures and carbon brushes. Now, the brand adds another 4 1/2-inch model (G12BYEQ2) to the roster to give you even more variety.


Metabo HPT Corded Paddle Switch Grinders: The Big Deal

We’re no strangers to the joys of brushless motors. They’re more efficient, provide more power, and extend the life of the tool with little-to-no downtime on account of maintenance. And Metabo HPT has added this significant upgrade to the Corded Paddle Switch Angle Grinders.


With brushless motors, these angle grinders eliminate the need for carbon brush replacement or issues that result from the motor armature burning out. As a result, you’ll experience less service-related downtime.

Additionally, the Metabo HPT Corded Angle Grinders feature electronic controllers that compensate for reduced power due to drops in voltage. Metabo HPT has designed them both for compatibility with a generator with an inverter circuit that cleans up and modulates the electricity before the motor puts that power to use. This provides you with steady, stable operation and reduces the potential for damaging the grinders’ internal circuitry.

Other Features

  • Fine mesh dust filters prevent dust particles from entering the motor housing
  • Lock-off lever on paddle switch adds safety
