Metabo HPT today announced the launch of the new 18V Compact Cordless Brushless Trim Router (model M1808DAQ4) that offers freedom to tackle woodworking jobs on the go.
This router is part of the expanding MultiVolt System of power tools from Metabo HPT that connects the 18V and 36V line of tools with Metabo HPT’s flexible MultiVolt battery that powers it all.
The trim router is convenient to grab and go. It has the power of a corded router while providing the convenience of a cordless tool. No cord means having the complete freedom to take routing work anywhere.
At only 2.5 lbs the lightweight powerhouse is a full 26% lighter than the competition, Metabo HPT says.
The variable speed lets the user dial up whatever the job calls for, offering speeds between 10,000 to 30,000 revolutions per minute. It features an ergonomic rubber grip, a one-handed power/trigger system, and a handy ambidextrous base mounting option.
The M1808DAQ4 is equipped with a bright LED light that completely illuminates the workspace to maintain accuracy and the clear guide provides excellent sightlines to the workpiece.
The tool keeps dust to a minimum by easily connecting a vacuum to the newly designed dust collection port.
Users can also easily change depth, including micro-adjustments with minimal effort with the depth adjustment feature for ultimate accuracy. The two-stage power/trigger system provides safety and control.
A quick brake feature stops the bit for increased safety and saves time between cuts. The soft start feature provides more control during ramp-up. It accepts ¼” or 3/8” collets for a wider variety of cuts.
