Watch the ZIP+ XTRA video, our new cutting wheel for heavy duty steel and stainless steel applications! The cutting wheel is a new addition to Walter’s ZIP line family of cutting wheels and replaces the existing ZIP+ due to increased performance while keeping the same value. The ZIP+ XTRA features Walter’s exclusive, patented rib design to reduce friction on the surface for faster and cooler cutting. It is 1/16” thick, which allows it to last longer, and cut through heavy duty applications with safety and precision.
