Metabo HPT dual volt...ac or DC tools

Recommended Posts

That sounds better then flexvolt, I definitely want the 36v / or ac 10" sliding duel bevel mitre saw.....battery or ac for.drills,circ saws, etc...that sounds " game changing" if the power is there...

   Another battery platform ,ouch...

It's actually multivolt, which makes no sense in my head. There is no power tool battery that can manage several voltages (3 or above, hence multi). Like framerjoe called it, dualvolt, that sounds better to me

Sounds like the corded adapter is a free option for bare tools.

Multiple or MultiVolt is accurate and sounds fine to me. It's more than 1 voltage so by definition, multiple works.

Dual is more specific as it specifically denotes 2. Either isn't wrong. I think MultiVolt sounds better.

Multivolt becomes more appropriate if they end up doing X2 with the batteries (so 18V, 36V, and 72V).

Sorry but I have to disagree with you man
Here is how I see it:
1=single
2=dual
3 or more= multi

What happened to triple or quadruple? If your going that route then.

Well they are followed by quintuple, sextuple, septuple, octuple and so on, so on...

A friend of mine made me think twice today about my statement, he took a video game as example and told me that two players can play together and that makes it a multiplayer game so I guess it does make kinda sense to call it multivolt.
You win Travis!

I seen multivolt at my local Menards. Metabo HTP has really improved the design of their stuff as of late and if feels nice. I remember back when people use to say Hitachi had an alien design. I am not sure why on the tab on the battery slot on the recip sticks down so much. It probably a good 1in. There is one design flaw of this recip vs some other recips. If the chuck has slid all the way back after you stop the saw, you can't get your fingers in to rotate it to remove the blade. If the chuck has slide all the way forward you shouldn't have much issue. It isn't a big issue but could potentially be one. I'm sure other recips with similar blade releases could have similar issues but I'm not sure.

I've noticed that tab as well. I have the 18V version and I figured maybe it's so any leaning on the back of the saw (to push it hard onto the shoe) does not transfer to the battery and it's clips. If that's the case, then it's a good feature. Otherwise all that forward pressure will go onto the battery clip mechanism (like you're forcibly trying to remove the battery without pressing the release buttons). 

 

Their angle grinders also have that tab.

 

Multivolt looks great.

I have some corded milwaukee recips that have the problem. A real PITA at times. The side tab like on metabo/dewalt etc is much easier to use as chuck position is not relevant.

Makita still has the older design but with a few tweaks. I don't think their chuck goes into the housing like the Metabo HTP and it is also spring loaded which would seem helpful.
