Metabo Corp. offers the new Vibratech antivibration handle on its entire line of angle grinders.
The handle helps reduce vibration on the side handle by eliminating direct contact between the spindle and the grip. An absorbent elastomer between the spindle and grip also helps reduce vibration, decreasing the user's risk of developing hand-arm vibration syndrome, a condition caused by vibration that affects circulation, sensory, and motor nerves.
All older and current grinders can be retrofitted with separately purchased handles.
