Lightning

A general purpose formulation with attitude. Don't be mistaken, this is a serious workhorse that gives a great blend of material removal and wheel life. They are made in the USA to exacting standards so you can expect consistent performance from every wheel you buy.

Lightning wheels are a good choice for applications where versatility of material type and fast removal rate are important to the operator. They also have the added benefit of a slightly lower acquisition cost compared to the high-performance Max Force and High Energy products.

High Energy

Versatile and long-lasting grinding wheels for all ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Offered in three separate formulations for mild steel, stainless, and aluminum. This formulation is known for its smooth, vibration-free operation throughout its life cycle. Achieves great performance on all quality levels of electric and air grinders. Priced lower than the Max Force while still offering extended performance compared to competitor's wheels costing up to 20% more.

High Energy are a slightly thicker version of the Lightning wheels, yet still maintain the rapid cutting action characteristics of the thinner wheels.

Max Force

Max Force grinding wheels aggressively remove steel in the most challenging applications. They are designed for maximum rate of material removal with the longest service life. This formulation performs especially well on premium grinders that deliver a lot of torque. On a cost-per-pound comparison, these wheels give the best bang for your buck.

These are the fastest cutting and longest lasting wheels we have ever designed - they tackle every type and cross section of material with impressive results. If you are using a high powered grinder and want to maximize performance, Max Force wheels are the ones that will get you to the winner's circle.
