The Skil Angle Grinders come in two versions: a small one-hand grinder and a larger two-hand grinder. Both share the same dynamic, ergonomically designed housing, with a compact cylindrical grip area. The two-hand Grindcat has an added "tail-handle" offering an excellent grip and perfect control of the tool. Both versions have a large switch that is easily operated by right- and left-handed users alike. The Grindcat has a unique double switch to make sure it can be turned on or off from any hand-position without moving your hand. The safety guard can be easily adjusted without any additional tools. The side-handle has been redesigned to provide a better grip. The design of the Angle Grinders is an example of the Skil product design language that has been developed by Skil and Brandes en Meurs industrial design.
