Yes, the protective guards are compatible.
This is not possible, as the accessories require the appropriate X-LOCK mechanism.
No there will not be an adapter.
No, this is not possible due to the differing gear wheel geometry.
Yes, X-LOCK has successfully been put through several lifetime, as well as extreme durability tests.
The unique X-LOCK mechanism ensures that the disc is properly mounted to the tool – even without flange, nut and spanner. By clicking on the disc, the clamping jaws and thus the system are locked.
The patented mechanism prevents opening while the machine is in use.
All cordless X-LOCK angle grinders are equipped with the extra fast breaking function “X-Brake”: this ensures that the disc halts within one second after each stop of the device – for increased user protection. Work is being done to find a corresponding solution for the corded angle grinders.
No, dust and dirt do not impair the X-LOCK mechanism. This was extensively tested under realistic conditions, as well as under extreme conditions in a dust chamber. Instructions for cleaning can be found in the operating instructions.
No, in contrast to GWS accessories, X-LOCK accessories are coded and cannot be mounted incorrectly.
The X-LOCK System offers solutions for all cutting and grinding work: cutting and grinding discs, abrasives, support plates, wire brushes, as well as diamond drills and diamond cutting discs.
Seven corded and four cordless models will be available worldwide. There will also be over 130 accessories. The X-LOCK-System includes a complete system program with diameters of 115 and 125 mm.
In general, other tools are possible and their realization is currently being evaluated.
The goal is to establish the X-LOCK system as the new market standard and then to reduce the number of angle grinders without X-LOCK. Until a corresponding market penetration is achieved, both systems will be offered.
The name is derived from the shape and function of the system: the X-LOCK mechanism has the shape of an “X” and the word “Lock” describes the function of the system.
X-LOCK will be available from specialist retailers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as of May 2019. The launch for home improvement stores is planned for September 2019.
