The patented design of the G-1000 offers many advantages. The instant blade change and adjustment feature is critical for proper regrooving. This enables the operator to easily position or reposition the blade at the correct depth and is particularly advantageous when changing blade size is necessary to reproduce the desired tread pattern.
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 unique suspended design helps to prevent heat degradation to 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.
Another important benefit of the suspended head design is that it nearly eliminates the deteriorating effects of tire dirt on the electrical efficiency of the tool.
The patented design of the G-1000 provides an incredibly smooth cutting action. This allows the operator to easily reproduce tire patterns with unprecedented control. At the same time, the pushing force applied by the operator virtually locks the tool at the proper cutting angle, making it effortless to maintain an accurate and consistent depth of cut.
In addition, 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.
