What is the advantage of this SKIL 9296-01 7.5-Amp 4-1 2-Inch Paddle Switch Angle Grinder?
As power tools have become more advanced, angle grinders also have improved. While users are cheering these technological advancements, safety professionals are becoming much more concerned. Having twice as much power in the same-size tool has especially increased the industry wide demand for non-locking paddle switch grinders. With user safety in mind, the new SKIL 9296-01 non-locking paddle switch grinder automatically turns off when released or dropped. Unlike traditional grinders where there is a locking slide power switch on the top or side of the tool, the non-locking paddle power switch on the SKIL 9296-01 can be found on the bottom of the tool, right where you hold onto it. This way, the tool is powered when you are ready to use it and automatically turns off when released. Additional features included on the SKIL 9296-01 grinder are a 3-position vibration reducing handle that allows you to safely and comfortably hold onto the tool without excessive vibration, an 8-foot rubber cord that is not only more durable, but provides better maneuverability, on-tool wrench storage keeps the blade wrench conveniently tucked into the handle so it won t get lost, and the tool-less guard adjustment lets you quickly and easily replace your grinder wheel. All these features and more are built into the powerful SKIL 9296-01 7.5-amp grinder that also happens to weigh less than 5-pounds. Its light weight, coupled with the vibration reducing handle, reduces user fatigue while grinding and sanding various materials, cleaning metals, sharpening blades, etc. The SKIL 9296-01 includes one SSKIL 9296-01 paddle switch angle grinder, one metal grinding wheel, one anti-vibe side-assist handle, and one spanner wrench.
There are a ton of tools that fit this bill, but the ergonomics of this one are just, as a whole package, better than the competition. The longer cord, very nice. The vibration isolating handle, very nice. The placement of the paddle, and the fact that it auto shuts off if released, very nice. The auto shut off is especially appreciated the moment you turn one of these on, they are much more powerful and dangerous than their small size and ease of handling suggest. The key also fits in the handle, so it s always there, never lost. Some others have one or two of these things, but this one has it all, and power, and sturdy build, and a competitive price. If you re in the market, this one is the one to get.
