The 32mm/1 1/4in diameter spindle is belt driven by a powerful 5.5kW/7.5HP 3 Phase motor. The long life sealed spindle bearings do not require lubrication. The cutting head is lowered using an adjustable side lever. A hydrocheck attached to the cutting head can be used to ensure controlled, but adjustable, cutting pressure for different users. A variable stop limits the downward stroke of the cutting head. Abrasive or Diamond Cutting Wheels from 250/10in to 350mm/14in diameter can be fitted. The wheel speed is set at 2500 rpm; other belt and pulley combinations give different wheel speeds for particular applications.
