HAZET wins World Tool Award 2021 for bristle grinder 9033-11/17
The proven Roloc® quick-change system enables plastic bristles to be changed quickly and easily without any additional tool. That makes the „bristle grinder“ a versatile, perfect and efficient tool in surface finishing. You can thus change a wide range of abrasive media without tools in next to no time. HAZET really impressed the expert jury with this.
The annual „World Tool Award“ is an international award for the best tools in woodworking, metalworking, garden tools and tool accessories. Products that stand out with new technologies and refined processing – while offering an optimal price-performance ratio – are recognised for their excellence. The jury consists of experienced trade journalists and test editors who have been working in the industry for many years and so enjoy the highest reputation. The test procedure includes both detailed laboratory measurements and practical tests.
"Innovative strength and solution-oriented products are the key to progress. We're so proud of the positive impression our bristle grinder made on the high-profile jury", says a delighted Carsten Scholz, Head of Marketing HAZET.
