The new polisher includes Metabo's VTC (Vario Tacho Constamatic) electronic speed stabilization for increased productivity under the heaviest operating conditions.

The new wet polisher provides consistent results, essential in decorative stone and concrete applications. A central water supply spreads water evenly over the polishing pad through a spindle and the polisher's solid 1/4 turn valve easily controls water flow. The easy to use tool features a quick connect external water supply fitting, an adjustable, ergonomic D-handle for comfortable operation as well as sturdy, die-cast aluminum gear housing with protective cover.
In addition to incorporating Metabo's unique dust-deflection winding protection grid, one of the most effective dust protection systems on the market, the PWE11-100 also features overload protection, an electric soft-start with an encapsulated on/off switch, enclosed carbon brush holders to protect against electrical shorts and a GFCI integrated into the power cord for electrical safety during wet grinding.
