X-LOCK vs Standard

The X-LOCK interface grinders feature a one-piece wheel connection, which eliminates the need for the backing flange, locking nuts and a wrench that the standard grinder interface requires to attach accessories.

    Wheelguard The grinder must always be used with a protective guard. Applications and local regulations must be taken in consideration when choosing the appropriate guard.
