“We looked at a popular tool and wondered how we could enhance it for our customers. Our engineers came up with the CTGR8855,” says Rodger Isetts, product manager for Snap-on. “Our grinder already defines power and is designed to handle various metal applications. The addition of a safety switch with automatic shut-off is an improvement we know technicians value.”
The Snap-on CTGR8855 18V features a powerful 18V MonsterLithium 4.0 Ah rechargeable battery like its predecessor, the CTGR8855, as well as an anti-vibration handle and soft start trigger. An electronic speed stabilizer keeps the grinder in control and a seven-position safety guard and automatic shut-off switch increase safety, Snap-on said.
The CTGR8855 uses 4 1/2- and 5-inch wheels and components included with the tool include, one battery, charger and tote bag. For more information, visit snapon.com.
