Metabo cuts the cord with new trim router


Metabo HPT introduces an 18-volt cordless trim router, featuring a compact design, brushless motor, and compatibility with the company’s MultiVolt System.

“This trim router is convenient to grab and go. It has the power of a corded router while providing the convenience of a cordless tool,” the company said in a statement.

“No cord means having the complete freedom to take routing work anywhere. You will no longer need to be tethered to a power cord or require power on the jobsite or worksite,” the company said in a statement.

The tool has a variable-speed motor (10,000 to 30,000 rpm) with soft start. It accepts 1/4” and 3/8” collets.

Other features include a one-handed power/trigger system, ambidextrous base mounting option, LED light, and dust collection port.

The trim router, model M1808DAQ4, sells for $149.
