Metabo HPT has launched a new cordless plunge router that offers complete freedom to tackle woodworking jobs on the go. 

The 36V MultiVolt ½” Plunge Router (model M3612DA) is part of the expanding MultiVolt System of power tools from Metabo HPT. It accepts any MultiVolt battery for extreme power and runtime and accepts the unique AC Adapter  (model ET36A) to plug in for all-day runtime offering ultimate versatility and extending battery life. 

The 2 peak HP brushless router features faster cutting speeds than its corded equivalents. With 11,000 up to 25,000 RPM it can plunge through even the hardest of woods with ease. 

The M3612DA is a powerhouse, cutting just over 46 feet per minute, Metabo said. At only 6.6 lbs (with battery) it is 40% lighter than its corded equivalent and features Metabo HPT’s signature ergonomic grip along with a handle mounted lock-on switch to make extended work easier.

The quick brake feature stops the bit for increased safety and saves time between cuts. The soft start feature provides more control during ramp-up. The bit capacity is ¼” or ½” with included collets, and with a plunge stroke of 1-31/32”, one can easily adjust the depth of cut with the tool-less design. 

The router is equipped with a bright LED light designed to allow work to be done even in the darkest of places. Keep the job clean by easily connecting to a vacuum with the included dust collection port. The M3612DA Cordless router comes with a 2.5Ah MultiVolt battery (371751M), a rapid charger (UC18YSL3), ½” and ¼” collets,  7-piece template guide set, straight guide, wrench, and carrying bag.
