Metabo HPT MultiVolt 10-Inch Miter Saw: Corded or Cordless

Metabo HPT MultiVolt 10-Inch Miter Saw: Corded or Cordless

Now that Hitachi has made the full transition to Metabo HPT, they’re rolling out the MultiVolt line as a sign of what’s to come. The Metabo HPT MultiVolt 10-inch miter saw is one of the more intriguing items we’re taking a look at first.

If you’re wondering if this is really a Hitachi cordless miter saw, the answer is yes. It’s just getting the new Metabo HPT branding.

10-Second Summary

  • Cordless or corded power
  • 10-inch blade diameter
  • Zero clearance rail system
  • Includes either battery/charger or AC adapter
  • $619


Key Features

The big highlight for this saw is its combination of cordless power with the ability to use an AC adapter. Better yet, that AC adapter will work on any Metabo HPT MultiVolt tool.

Metabo HPT goes with a zero clearance rail system. What’s interesting is that it moves away from the typical rails directly over each other or to the side of each other. Instead, it gets more of a diagonal orientation. We’ll have to wait and see if that gives it more stability.

This is a dual bevel miter saw, so you’ll get both mitering and beveling to the left and right with respectable ranges.


Pricing is interesting with this and several other Metabo HPT tools. Technically, they’re being sold as bare tools. But that’s a little misleading. When you pick up the saw, you’ll have a choice of an AC adapter or a battery/charger combo. Plus, if you register your tool online between November 1 and December 31, 2018, they’ll send you a free battery.

That’s not bad for $619. By comparison, Milwaukee’s M18 Fuel 10-inch miter saw is $599 with no AC option and DeWalt’s FlexVolt is $63 – $799, depending on which kit you get. The FlexVolt is a 12-inch saw.

Metabo HPT MultiVolt 10-Inch Miter Saw Highlights

  • Zero clearance rail system means you can back the saw right up to the wall
  • Adjustable laser gives you precision cutting when you need it
  • LED light gives you a better view of your cutting surface

  • Bevel and miter controls are up front

I had a Hitachi miter saw once. It was pretty flimsy, and I was fortunate that it broke on the first project, well within the return window.

Hopefully the name change and price difference signals a big change in the quality of their materials and workmanship.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
