Metabo High Torque Dry Polishers

For polishing metal and masonry materials.

December 2018 – West Chester, PA – Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade cordless and corded hand-held power tools and accessories, announces two new Variable Speed High Torque Dry Polishers, the PE 15-20 RT and PE 15-30, made in Germany.

“We are proud to introduce two new exciting additions to our polisher line; The PE 15-20 RT and PE 15-30 (replacing the PE 12-175). The planetary gearing in these new models allows for a more powerful and efficient tool. Also, both the PE 15-20 RT and PE 15-30 have a wide variable speed range to tackle a variety of materials at different hardness.” says Terry Tuerk, Metabo’s Senior Product Manager.

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.

The Extra High-Torque Variable Speed Dry Polisher with Rat-tail (PE 15-20 RT) has a no-load speed of 300-1,900 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 the tools life and soft start feature allows for smooth start-up. The PE12-20 RT and PE 15-30 have restart protection, which prevents the tool from starting on its own in the event of a power interruption. The polishers are also equipped with electronic winding temperature monitors with LED displays and have a lock on trigger/switch for running the tool for extended periods.
