How is this metal grinder an improvement on the EY4640?
The ability to use 18.0v batteries and the new, high-powered motor provides you with up to 150% more power and speed.
You can also use this tool more constantly, even under substantial load. Overall, you will find that this 18v cordless grinder perfectly suits heavy-duty applications.
The Panasonic EY46A2 is also 25mm shorter than its predecessor, making it more compact and easy to handle. It is ideal for work in areas with restricted space, such as under a roof or floor.
Safety features of this Panasonic 18v grinder
The grinder will not start when the battery pack is inserted with the switch in the ON position. Instead, a warning lamp flashes to alert you to the switch’s position. This helps to prevent you from accidentally starting the machine when you are unprepared.
Additionally, this 18v cordless mini grinder has a “battery overheat protection” feature. This cuts off power to the motor before the battery temperature rises to a harmful level, and alerts you to this with another flashing lamp.
These tools have a sensor in their body that detects the battery voltage and changes the current and voltage flow to enable the best performance.
This allows you to customise your Panasonic cordless angle grinder to suit the job: use 18.0v 4.2Ah batteries for high power and a long runtime, or use 14.4v batteries with a smaller power reserve for a lighter tool that’s easier and more comfortable to use.
