GO Smooth as Silk with the new 18V MultiVolt™ Cordless Reciprocating Saw from Metabo HPT
November 10, 2022

BRASELTON, GA., Nov 10, 2022 – Metabo HPT today announced the launch of a New Cordless Saw to its lineup with the 18V MultiVolt Reciprocating Saw (model CR18DBQ4). Besides pro level cutting performance, this lightweight reciprocating saw features an orbital cut mode, a counterbalance gear housing to significantly reduce vibration, an LED light, variable speed trigger and tool-less blade change for quick transitions. It’s part of the expanding MultiVolt System of 18V and 36V power tools from Metabo HPT. As an 18V bare tool, the user can decide to GO lighter by using a compact 18V battery or GO longer with the flexible 18V/36V MultiVolt battery to double the runtime per charge* for more power on the go. MSRP $119.

The low vibration design is thanks to a metal counter-balance housing that reduces vibration significantly compared to the competition in its class. One end user described it as feeling “smooth as silk,” making it more comfortable to use for demolition and rough cutting applications. Another unique feature on this low vibration reciprocating saw is the 2-mode cutting mechanism. The user can decide between straight cutting mode for basic cutting or an orbital cut mode to boost cutting performance. 

It delivers a no-load speed up to 3,000 SPM and the variable speed trigger allows you to cut through various materials like plywood and PVC pipes with more control. A tool-less blade change is convenient for quick replacements. The bright LED light comes in handy when working in dark spaces. The tool body weighs just 6.6 lbs., for easy maneuverability. The new ergonomic shape of this saw along with the slip/heat resistant grip and front cover make this reciprocating saw easier to handle for all day use. It’s the next generation of versatile 18V reciprocating saws featuring dynamic cutting speed and durability.

The CR18DAQ4 18V Cordless Reciprocating Saw is backed by Metabo HPT’s Lifetime tool body warranty. It’s sold as a bare tool (battery & charger sold separately) and comes with a wood cutting blade.
