October 13, 2022

BRASELTON, GA. (October 13, 2022) – Metabo HPT today announced the launch of the tool body only model for the Industry’s First Cordless Plunge Router that offers complete freedom to tackle woodworking jobs on the GO! The 36V MultiVolt ½” Plunge Router (Tool Body Only) model M3612DAQ4 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. It’s backed by Metabo HPT’s Lifetime Lithium-Ion tool body warranty for peace of mind. MSRP $249

Green means GO. With this 36V cordless router you can go work just about anywhere. No longer must you be tethered to a workshop. Just slide on any MultiVolt battery and get going. When you need to get the job done quickly this 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 M3612DAQ4 is a powerhouse, cutting just over 46 feet per minute*! At only 6.9 lbs, 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. 

This cordless 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. Perhaps the most unique advantage for ALL 36V MultiVolt cordless tools from Metabo HPT is the ability to transform to corded use with the revolutionary AC adapter (model ET36A (sold separately). Woodworkers can conveniently get the functionality of two tools (cordless and corded) in one. Use the M3612DAQ4 Router cordless when it makes sense on the job. However, if power is readily available, then save battery life and the cost of battery replacements by just plugging in so you can go all day. 

The M3612DAQ4 Cordless router comes with ½” and ¼” collets, a 7-piece template guide set, straight guide, dust collection set, wrench and carrying bag. It accepts the 18V/36V 8.0Ah/4.0Ah MultiVolt battery, 18V/36V 5.0Ah/2.5Ah MultiVolt battery and the AC adapter with cord (ET36A)- all sold separately.
