Metabo HPT presents a new cordless plunge router, model M3612DA, with an accessory for corded operation.
“Woodworkers will love the flexibility this router gives them,” says product manager Bobby Kilkenny. “As part of the Metabo HPT MultiVolt system, you can plug it in using the MultiVolt AC adapter or work without a cord using the included battery.”
The router features a 2-hp, brushless motor with variable speed, producing 11,000 to 25,000 rpm, according to the company.
The bare tool weighs about 6-1/2 lbs. Other features include a handle-mounted power lock switch to make extended work easier, soft start, tool-less depth adjustment, LED work light, and dust port.
The plunge router sells for $399 and with one 2.5Ah battery and charger, 1/2” and 1/4” collets, a seven-piece template guide set, straight guide, wrench and carrying bag. The AC adapter (model ET36A) sells for $169.
“Once invested in the M3612DA cordless router, the same MultiVolt battery that powers this 36-volt tool can also power any 36-volt Metabo HPT tool and any 18-volt cordless tool. Runtime is doubled when installed on 18-volt tools,” the company says.
