“MK Diamond is always looking for a way to offer tile and stone professionals products to make their jobs easier,” said Brian Delahaut, Vice President of MK Diamond Products, Inc. “The addition of these Suhner polishers/grinders rounds out the MK line of hand tools in this area.” The Suhner line-up includes two electric grinders that polish, shape and grind.

The UXJ 2 Right Angle Grinder is a 2-horsepower, 2,300-RPM, unit weighing 5.4 pounds; the UXF 4-R Right Angle Grinder is a 1½-horsepower, 1,600-3,500 RPM grinder. Both are used for polishing surfaces and edges of sink holes and counter edges. Both models use 4-inch flexible diamond pads with backer pad for polishing natural stone, granite, glass and engineered stone. Common features include carbon brushes with automatic cut-out to protect the armature, inline GFCI, adjustable water valve for flow control, soft-start technology to ensure that the tool starts up smoothly and a lock-button for fast wheel changes.

The three pneumatic grinders are quiet with low vibration. The LXB-10, a powerful angled grinder with 10,000 RPM, weighs less than 1 pound, thus reducing operator fatigue. The LXC 2, which offers lower RPM at 2,000, is designed for engineered stone. Both are compact and have a 2-inch maximum pad diameter for use in small spaces. The LXE 3 grinder has 3,000 RPM, and a 4-inch pad diameter. This grinder/polisher is good for use on marble, limestone and granite.
