VORTEX GRINDER

The VORTEX grinders incorporate the versatility and precision from our original grinders, offering one package that truly fits the modern workshop. Professional workhorse, full-size machines aimed at the user who needs power with precision. Our grinders are the solution for users with limited space and can be fitted with various accessories to meet all grinding requirements. These machines can be configured with either a 0.75kW or 1.5kW single- or variable speed. Accessories can be added as required. Both 0.75kW and 1.5kW options use the same chassis and accessories and run off single-phase 220V.

The current version has matured to a user-friendly machine that sports all improvements made over the past 5 years. Some highlights are:
- Game-changing optional ratchet system for extremely user-friendly belt changing and adjustable tensioning.
- Tracking mechanism is now integrated into the motor arm
- Precise and smooth tracking finely adjustable in a pinch
- Super-quality hard-wearing powder-coated finish
