GO Easy with Metabo HPT’s 36V MultiVolt™ Cordless 2-Gal Brushless Compressor
March 17, 2022

BRASELTON, GA. (March 17, 2022) – The Pro Preferred Brand of Pneumatic Nailers*, Metabo HPT today announced the newest addition to its cordless lineup with the 36V MultiVolt 2-Gallon Cordless Compressor (model EC36DAQ4). This brushless compressor delivers 135 Max PSI, yet weighs only 27.3 lbs., packing usability into a portable package. It can easily drive over 1,000 18-Gauge brad nails on a single charge** while providing the most demanding trim carpenter or remodeler all-day use without the restraints of an extension cord. As part of the expanding MultiVolt System of power tools from Metabo HPT it accepts any MultiVolt battery for extreme power AND accepts the unique AC Adapter (model ET36A) to plug in for all day runtime when power is available offering ultimate versatility and extending battery life.


This new cordless alternative for pneumatic nailing produces high output energy of 1.6 CFM at 90 PSI and eliminates the hassle of having to navigate long hoses or extension cords. By combining the reliability of Metabo HPT’s proven compressor technology, along with the power of the MultiVolt battery, this cordless and quiet 2-Gallon “hotdog” style compressor works all day long. It can run finish crews with 18-Gauge brad nailers and even 15-Gauge or 16-Gauge finish nailers.  It produces 1.6 CFM at 90 PSI and 2.3 CFM at 40 PSI. The locking regulator and 105 on/135 off pressure switch means no worries about pressure wander or a pressure starved tool on the job. The oil-free brushless motor delivers more runtime, increased power, and extended durability with essentially no maintenance. With a 17-second refill speed there’s less waiting between cycles so you’re ready to go in no time.


An all-metal roll cage design protects the integrated control panel that centralizes the industrial regulator and gauges for simple operation and PSI adjustment. The large on/off knob allows for easy control, even when wearing gloves. For better visibility, there are two easy-to-read gauges for tank pressure and regulated pressure. The oil-free motor provides long compressor life with less maintenance. Additional features that add convenience to the EC36DAQ4 Cordless Compressor include the easy-to-use ball valve drain cock for quick and easy tank draining, shock absorbing feet that reduce vibration and minimize crawling, and a factory installed universal quick coupler ready for plug and play functionality. Designed with a rubber carrying handle for easy transport, it’s an ideal cordless compressor for the contractor, remodeler or homeowner seeking a convenient, versatile, and lightweight compressor for small punch-out work or all-day jobs.


Perhaps the most unique advantage of ALL 36V MultiVolt cordless tools from Metabo HPT is the ability to be converted to corded use with the revolutionary AC adapter (model ET36A - sold separately). Users can conveniently get the functionality of two tools (cordless and corded) in just one. Use the EC36DAQ4 compressor fully cordless, however if the battery needs to be recharged and you have no spares ready, you can plug in with the AC adapter and keep going.



Once invested in the Metabo HPT Cordless compressor, the same MultiVolt batteries that power this 36V compressor can also power ANY Metabo HPT 18V tool or nailer with double the runtime when installed. Now contractors can flexibly add to their cordless tool arsenal sharing the MultiVolt battery across the 36V and 18V cordless tool platform for ultimate versatility thanks to the MultiVolt System advantage. MSRP $299.



The EC36DAQ4 comes with a ¼” Brass Industrial Coupler. MultiVolt Batteries 4.0/8.0Ah 372121M, 2.5/5.0Ah 371751M, chargers and AC adapter sold separately. For more information including the full line of Metabo HPT products and support, please contact 1-800-829-4752 or visit metabo-hpt.com.
