Metabo Power 160-5 18 LTX BL OF Cordless Brushless Compressor

Metabo has released a new Power 160-5 18 LTX BL OF Cordless Brushless Compressor.

The Metabo Power 160-5 18 LTX BL OF Cordless Compressor runs on their 18V lithium batteries and consists of a 1.3 gallon tank making it very compact and portable. It’s also very light as you’d expect for such a small size at only 21.8 lbs (with battery). It’s small size means it’s in direct competition with small cordless compressors like Ryobi’s and Ridgid’s 18V compressors which are also puny 1 gallon air compressors. However being a Metabo tool, you can expect the quality and reliability from a Metabo tool.

As far as features go it’s an Oil-free piston compressor with brushless motor and with a roll cage handle design (although the roll cage doesn’t protect the rear section) and has twin PSI dials for tank and tool regulator pressure which is controlled by a regulator knob and a single hose coupler. Dials and controls are protected by a plastic front face. Max pressure is 116 PSI which should be enough for light duty brad and finish nailers and for filling tires on the go. What’s also interesting about his cordless compressor is that you can store a second battery pack on the rear bottom of the unit. It says you can store it there to work without interruption but doesn’t state if the second battery is electronically connected or not but the fact that it states working without interruption makes me think it is electronically connected so the user hopefully wouldn’t need to stop and swap batteries during work.

A big thanks to Cody Robertson for spotting!

The second battery is not electronically connected. It is only for storage
