Ingersoll Rand Launches New VT22 Vortex Turbine Grinder

EUROPE - Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in automotive and industrial tools and equipment, has launched the new Vortex VT22 turbine grinder in its European served markets.

The Vortex VT22 turbine grinder is a 125mm angle grinder – its 2.2 kW turbine motor makes it the most powerful 125mm air angle grinder available on the market today. The Vortex VT22 turbine grinder has a rich list of features – including a class leading spindle offset of only 22.5mm enabling it to achieve a depth of cut of up to 40mm.

Fast wheel changes are possible with the one handed spindle lock, which also controls the 10 position safety guard.

Operator safety and comfort are important issues – and the Vortex VT22 has a vibration reduced side handle, a proven wheel guard, primary and secondary speed control devices and a low profile safety lock trigger.

“With the introduction of the Vortex VT22 turbine grinder, the combination of the highest power and work rate, and the ergonomic design make the Vortex VT22 grinder the first choice for heavy grinding and cutting applications” said John Schofield, European Marketing Manager, Industrial Tools for Ingersoll Rand, “which means less cost and greater efficiency for users”. The Vortex VT22 turbine grinder also features an unique optional top handle for use in applications where lateral space is limited – allowing the Vortex VT22 to be the complete solution to grinding and cutting needs.
