Metabo HPT MultiVolt Metal-Cutting Circular Saw

Is it a metal-cutting marvel? You decide.

Several companies in the tool industry have a long history. Metabo HPT is one of them, and with unlikely origins, no less. In 1923, founder Albrecht Schnizler built his first hand drill, of all places, in his parents’ bakery in Nürtingen, Germany. Schnizler sold 50,000 units of this model (called No. 18). In the wake of his success, he hung out his shingle in partnership with brewery owner Julius Closs. A century later, Metabo HPT is going strong with a host of tools like the 18V MultiVolt Circular Saw (CD1805DB).

Based on what Metabo HPT says, this is the tool to turn to for a variety of metal-cutting challenges. However, the verdict is in your court as to whether the CD1805DB has what it takes to make the cut.

At the heart of this model is a high-efficiency brushless motor and an interesting battery setup. Indeed, the CD1805DB utilizes Metabo HPT’s MultiVolt capability, allowing you to run at 18V or 36V. This is especially useful for controlling your runtime.

Together, the two produce up to 4,200 RPMs. Here’s what you can do with that performance.

According to Metabo HPT, the MultiVolt is a straight-up metal-cutting circular saw. Specifically, they tell us it has the fastest cutting time in its class on materials such as metal drywall studs, steel pipes, light gauge steel, and conduit.

Moreover, the CD1805DB has some standout safety features. For example, should the blade bind, the saw will immediately cut the power.

In terms of design, the CD1805DB has a couple of notable facets.

For one, there’s the soft start feature, which runs in “silent mode.” Simply put, this function regulates and automatically adjusts the power. So, you’re never cutting at speeds that you don’t need.

Furthermore, it has a large chip box to keep your workspace tidy and an LED light for improved visibility.
