Metabo HPT announced the launch of two New Cordless Saws to its lineup. An 18V MultiVolt One-Handed Compact Reciprocating Saw (model CR18DAQ4) and 18V MultiVolt Jig Saw (model CJ18DAQ4). Both tools are part of the expanding MultiVolt System from Metabo HPT that connect the 18V and 36V line of tools with Metabo HPT’s flexible MultiVolt battery that powers it all. Go with the 18V cordless saws that won’t let you down, delivering extraordinary power and flexibility.
The CR18DAQ4 18V MultiVolt One-Handed Reciprocating Saw
The CR18DAQ4 18V MultiVolt One-Handed Reciprocating Saw accepts both 18V batteries and MultiVolt batteries from Metabo HPT for up to 8 Amp hours* of runtime per charge! A unique feature of this one-handed recip saw is that it can accept reciprocating saw blades as expected, but also t-shank jig saw blades! This adds convenience and versatility for more detailed cuts like cutting arches in plywood or cutting a 1-1/2” hole in a cavity that is only 6” wide between studs. The slim profile of this saw means you can use it in areas where other tools just will not fit. Its center-balanced design makes one-handed use easy with less fatigue even when you switch from an 18V battery to the more powerful MultiVolt battery.
The tool body weighs just 2.9 lbs and it is extremely compact at 13.8 inches front to back. This one-handed recip saw delivers a no-load speed up to 3,200 SPM. The variable speed trigger allows you to cut through various materials like plywood and PVC pipes without heavy vibration. A tool-less adjustable shoe provides more points of contact than a fixed shoe and can maximize blade life. The bright LED light comes in handy when working in dark spaces. End users are voicing the versatility of this saw from cutting PVC pipes all day to cutting metal closet shelf accessories to notching vinyl plank flooring to cutting nail embedded 2x4s to pruning small shrubs around the home. It is the most versatile one-handed recip available today. MSRP $129.
The CJ18DAQ4 18V MultiVolt Jig Saw
The CJ18DAQ4 18V MultiVolt Jig Saw also accepts both 18V batteries and MultiVolt batteries from Metabo HPT for up to 8 Amp hours* of runtime per charge! This cordless tool is ideal for those times when you need an easy-to-use jig saw for precision work. It produces 2,500 strokes per minute with a 1-1/32” stroke length to do the job faster. The 4 speed settings allow the user to select the best speed depending on the wood he is cutting. Three orbital action modes make a noticeable difference in how fast you can cut. One end user said, “cutting through walnut proved no problem.”
For more precision and control, a straight cut mode is ideal especially when cutting angles and details. Plus, the quick brake function stops the blade faster to increase safety and reduce delay for the user. An included splinter guard is effective to improve the quality of the edges and you can easily remove it when not needed.
The D-handle design with soft vibration reducing grip is well-balanced in the hand letting you work longer with less fatigue. It features a smooth variable speed trigger, convenient dust blower, and LED light to clear and illuminate the cut path so you can easily see where you are cutting. Change t-shank blades quickly and easily for different materials with the tool-less blade change system. The 45°adjustable base allows for angled cuts and the provided hex wrench mounts securely to the baseplate for easy access. At only 4.2 lbs (tool body only), it is lightweight for easy use and sturdy to glide along the workpiece. MSRP $99.
