We got our grubby hands on the Metabo HPT MultiVolt Circular Saw (model C3607DAQ4). t’s a blade-right sidewinder style with a solid overall build, using metal components all around where other brands will use plastic.
UPDATE: It now appears Metabo HPT is perpetually throwing in either the AC adapter or a battery/charger kit with every saw. That brings the price down considerably.
Unlike any other circular saw we’ve tested, you get two-speed modes to work with. In its normal cutting mode, the blade spins up to 4300 RPM and has enough torque to make it the 5th fastest saw in our full depth cutting test. It also beat out our corded Skilsaw worm drive.
Metabo HPT’s first MultiVolt circular saw is well-built, lightweight for its class, and outperforms our corded worm drive. While there’s a little hiccup on the secondary handle design, the price is what will make you think twice and likely keep this saw out of the hands of anyone not already on the MultiVolt platform.
