New Go-to Grinders Packed with Features that can be Operated Cordless OR Corded - from Metabo HPT
February 23, 2023

BRASELTON, GA. (February 23, 2023) – The Pro Preferred Brand of Pneumatic Nailers* and the creator of the versatile cordless MultiVolt System, Metabo HPT, today announced the newest additions to its cordless lineup with the launch of a 36V MultiVolt™ Brushless 4-1/2” Variable Speed Paddle Switch Angle Grinder (model G3612DVFQ6), a 36V MultiVolt™ Brushless 4-1/2” Variable Speed Slide Switch Angle Grinder (model G3612DVEQ6) and a 36V MultiVolt™ Brushless 6” Variable Speed Paddle Switch Angle Grinder (model G3615DVFQ6). They all offer complete freedom to tackle grinding jobs on the GO and deliver 18% more power** than the previous models. These new 36V MultiVolt grinders are sold as tool body only and are part of the ever-expanding MultiVolt System of power tools from Metabo HPT. They accept any 18V/36V MultiVolt battery for extreme power and runtime AND accept the unique AC Adapter - model ET36A (all sold separately) to plug in for all day runtime offering ultimate versatility and extending battery life. MSRP for the 4-1/2” models: $199, MSRP for 6” model: $219.

Green means GO. With these new 36V MultiVolt cordless grinders you can go work just about anywhere. No longer must you be tethered to an outlet. Just slide on any MultiVolt battery and get going. With 1500W of maximum output power they deliver 18% more power* than previous models. Six speed settings (3,200 up to 10,000 RPM for the 4-1/2” models and 3,200 up to 8,000 RPM for the 6” model) plus auto mode (5,500 RPM) make these the grinders you need whether you are polishing/finishing, removing paint, rust, burrs, grinding or rough grinding to easily adjust the speed best suited to the application. The brushless motors provide ultra-efficient grinding performance with minimal maintenance and the added benefit of reduced tool weight and size. That is evidenced in the ultra slim grip diameter on these grinders. At just over 2”, they are easier to handle and more comfortable to use, especially during extended periods. 

Provided safety features include brake safety functions that quickly stop the wheels from spinning when the switch/paddles are released, kickback protection shuts off the power in the event of a bound wheel, zero voltage restart prevents restarting if the power is temporarily cut during operation, soft start reduces the load felt by the user during startup, drop shut off stops the motor if the tool is dropped (G3612DVEQ6 model only) and overload protection stops the motor when too much pressure is applied to protect the motor and gear box from damage. The no-lock paddle switch grinders cannot be activated unless the lock-off lever is pushed down to avoid unintentional starting (G3612DVFQ6 & G3615DVFQ6 paddle switch grinders only).

Improved tool-less wheel guards and 3 position anti-vibration side handles provide increased operational efficiency and comfort. Removable dust screens offer additional protection for the motors against dust and debris and ensure that the grinders are operating effectively. The dust and water-resistant switches add durability. These grinders offer dual LED lights located on both sides of the gear housing to provide bright light during use. They also weigh just 5.1 lbs (4-1/2” models) and 5.3 lbs (6” model) for easier mobility and less fatigue.

Perhaps the most unique advantage for ALL 36V MultiVolt cordless tools from Metabo HPT is the ability to transform to corded use with the revolutionary AC adapter (model ET36A (sold separately). Users can conveniently get the functionality of two tools (cordless and corded) in one. Use the 36V cordless grinders when it makes sense on the job. However, if power is readily available, then save battery life and the cost of battery replacements by just plugging in so you can go all day. 

These Cordless Grinder come with 4-1/2” abrasive wheels and 4-1/2” tool-less wheel guards (G3612DVFQ6 & G3612DVEQ6), or a 6” abrasive wheel and 6” tool-less wheel guard (G3615DVFQ6), side handle, spanner wrench, hex bar wrench and carrying bag. They accept the 18V/36V 8.0Ah/4.0Ah MultiVolt battery, 18V/36V 5.0Ah/2.5Ah MultiVolt battery and the AC adapter with cord (ET36A) - all sold separately. They’re backed by Metabo HPT’s One-Year warranty. For more information including the full line of Metabo HPT products and support, please contact 1-800-829-4752.
