Metabo HPT (the tool company formerly known as Hitachi) has just come out with a new cordless table saw part of their Multivolt 36V platform with the METABO HPT Cordless 36V MultiVolt Brushless 10″ Table Saw C3610DRJQ4M.
This makes Metabo HPT one of the few power tool brands to offer a cordless table saw and join the ranks with Dewalt, Metabo, Milwaukee and soon to be Bosch. Unlike Dewalt’s and Milwaukee’s cordless table saws who use a smaller 8-1/2″ blade, Metabo HPT’s model uses a regular size 10″ blade just like a regular corded table saw (just like Metabo’s cordless table saws). However unlike Metabo’s cordless table saw models, Metabo HPT’s cordless table saw model is available in the USA and it’s available now. Wow, that last sentence might confuse some but keep in mind Metabo and Metabo HPT are two separate brands working under the same parent company. Metabo is still the “real” Metabo while Metabo HPT is a rebranding of Hitachi. In fact HPT stands for Hitachi Power Tools.
The Metabo HPT multivolt cordless table saw takes full advantage of their Multivolt batteries making this a 36V saw. There are a few of standout features, primarily due to it using a regular size 10 inch blade which gives it the full size cutting capacity of a corded table saw at 3-1/4 inches at 90 degrees and 2-1/4 inches at 45 degrees. It also gets dado support for up to a 13/16″ 8″ dado stack and just like their corded table saw model, this cordless bad boy can has a rip capacity of 35 inches to the right and 22 inches to the left making it the largest rip capacities of not just cordless table saws but corded models as well. Also like any of their Multivolt cordless power tools, this table saw accepts their AC adapter to give it corded capability for unlimited runtime.
It has a rack and pinion fence system for easy and precise fence movement and also includes an outfeed extension to help support longer boards. And other features include a brushless motor with soft start, riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, blade guard, rear 2-1/2″ vac dust port, miter gauge, push stick and on board storage.
The saw is available now for $699 as a baretool. Much like the rest of their Metabo HPT cordless power tools, it’s expensive and more so than competing pro brands. Normally I’d complain about the considerably higher price point however this cordless table saw offers one main feature that I think I’d be willing to pay extra for, which is the fact that can run full size 10″ blades with full size 3-1/8″ cut capacity which is something that Dewalt’s and Milwaukee’s model don’t offer, though considerably less expensive. I also want to mention that Acme Tools is currently offering a deal at time of writing where you can get your choice of either a Multivolt AC adaptor or a Multivolt battery and charger starter kit for no additional charge when you purchase the Table Saw baretool which should make the $699 price point a bit easier to swallow.
