Product Details


Van Norman Flywheel Grinders are the industry leaders and provide the best return on your investment. That’s more profit! The FG10000 Flywheel Grinder is a solid, well-built machine designed for grinding a variety of flywheels. One of the most versatile grinders on the market today, the FG10000 Flywheel Grinder resurfaces automotive and import stepped flywheels, truck flat flywheels, heavy duty truck stepped flywheels center plates, and racing clutch components. You can also grind Heavy Duty Commercial Truck Brake Rotors with the HD Truck Rotor Kit.

The FG10000 Flywheel Grinder takes work pieces up to 24″. With a table diameter of 18″ and six (6) slots in the table, you have the stability and versatility for a full range of work. The table support diameter is 15″ and the column diameter is 5.5″. The vertical head travel of the column is 8.75″ with the maximum height of the table to wheel of 10.50″. A strong, 10 horsepower grinding motor at 3,500 revolutions per minute and a 1/3 horsepower table motor at 16 revolutions per minute mean the FG10000 Flywheel Grinder is designed to do the job right.

The standard machine is available in 208 or 230 volts three phase only. Additional voltages are also available as special order. In addition, the FG10000 can be ordered with an optional PowerHead (Power Column) or with the PowerHead (Power Column) and AutoGrind TM option. The PowerHead (Power Column) relieves the operator of the manual movement of the head up and down. The PowerHead (Power Column) with the AutoGrind TM feature powers the head up and down and can be set to automatically grind the flywheel to a pre-set depth.

  • An exclusive, rugged base casting with cast-in table support. This means the table and support are all one piece solid cast material. More durability, more reliability.
  • Unlimited grinding pressure is possible without table deflection. Again, this means you can work the machine and it will give you the results you need.
  • There is an oil reservoir with an ‘Optomatic oiler’ that provides constant lubrication to the column and table support.
  • There are no thrust bearings or anti-friction materials that would require field service.
  • The direct table drive means there are no chains or belts to adjust or replace. You receive consistent torque on the table.
  • The double cam head swivel lock gives you positive head lock and is lubricated for ease in swiveling.
  • The optional AutoGrind TM is easy to set, easy to use and increases productivity. Best yet, it is reliable.
