Power and Durability
With a powerful 750 Watt motor the KG750 grinder can cope with demanding applications such as mortar raking between brickwork and heavy duty cutting of tiles and metalwork. Black & Decker engineers know what goes into making power tools and features such as the die cast aluminium main housing, hard wearing motor brushes and dust sealed switch are all designed to help improve durability. These features increase the life span of the tool by preventing dust ingress and dissipating heat away from the gear box and other key components.
The three position side handle means that a comfortable hand position can be maintained in all applications, vertical, horizontal, cutting or grinding. The tool free safety guard can be adjusted to expose the grinding or cutting disk in the appropriate area whilst ensuring the user is protected from sparks and other debris.
Main uses and applications
Most grinders are designed for various applications but these can broadly be split into two categories; cutting where the material is accurately re-sized for a particular purpose and grinding which involves removal of unwanted material including rust removal, finishing and cleaning of the work piece. For this reason the appropriate disk must be used depending on whether the task is cutting or grinding. The choice of disk also depends on the material type which is generally metal or masonry (for example railings and bolts or tiles and brickwork).
Using the right accessory
Grinding or cutting disks are easily selected and identified as they are usually labelled for the application and material they are intended for. During use, cutting and grinding discs slowly wear down and eventually need replacing. For this reason replacement disks are readily available from Black & Decker and other suppliers. They generally have a universal fitment providing the correct diameter has been selected. The KG750 is equipped with a spindle lock function operated by pressing a button on the gear housing to lock the mechanism in place. This allows the disc locking nut or ‘flange’ to be loosened and the disc replaced.
It is important to remember to wear the appropriate safety equipment at all times and ensure the guard is in place when using this type of power tool. The high speed rotation of the disc can produce sparks or other debris as well as sharp edges during and after use.
