The instant blade change & adjustment feature is critical for proper grooving. This enables the operator to easily position or re-position the blade at the correct depth & is particularly advantageous when different sizes blades are required on the same tire. By preventing the blade holding mechanism from contacting the tire surface, the unique suspended head design of the G-1000 nearly eliminates the deteriorating effects of the tire dirt on the electrical efficiency of the tool.Unlike other groovers, where a very hot portion of the tool makes direct contact with the tire surface, only the heated blade touches the tire with the G-1000 system. This helps to prevent heat degradation of the rubber. The elimination of heat degradation is extremely important with race tires because the new edges created by cutting grooves need to be as durable as possible.
The patented design of the G-1000 uses the pushing force applied by the operator to virtually lock the tool at the proper cutting angle, making it effortless to maintain an accurate and consistent depth of cut. The smooth cutting action of the G-1000 allows the operator to easily follow or reproduce existing tread patterns with unparalleled control.
The blade holding mechanism of the G-1000 is designed to protect the cutting edge of the blade, unlike other less convenient blade holders that actually damage the cutting edge by clamping directly on it.
