Metabo’s 18V LTX 6-1/2″ Brushless Cordless Plunge-Cut Circular Saw, model KT 18 LTX 66 BL, is their first ever 18V plunge cut saw! This saw has just been announced, bringing unmatched precision to the market and a user-friendly design that has gotten some great reviews since its release.
Power Through Materials with Speed and Precision
The Metabo brushless motor, when combined with their LiHD high-power battery packs, guarantee maximum pulling power and long-lasting sawing performance on this new Plunge Cut Circ. Saw. The variable speed feature makes it easy to cut through a variety of materials, and the design of the plunge cut handle gives you the most control for moving the saw smoothly down the track.
One of the key factors that sets this saw apart from the rest is its precision. The cutting depth can be adjusted easily on the side of the saw before you start cutting, and if you want to get even more precise with it there is a micro adjuster on top of the tool that can adjust the blade by millimeters at a time. The micro adjuster is much more easily accessible when you’re in the middle of a cut, so you can make small changes with even more precision as you go.
Deepest Cutting Depth on the Market
The KT 18 LTX 66 BL has a deeper depth of cut than most comparable track saws on the market at 66mm (2.59”), while similar track saws have only 51-52mm cutting depths. For ease of use, you can easily see the cutting depth differences with and without the guide rail through the double display on the side of the saw.
Easy Operation With the Track
If you’re switching between materials, you can quickly and easily exchange the saw blade on the KT 18 LTX 66 BL with a lever to lock the plunge position and spindle stop into place. Since this saw can be used with multiple materials, being able to change the blade easily is a huge benefit to many users.
This saw is designed to be used with the Metabo FS 80 guide rail, which has a chip guard that reduces skips during sawing, or the longer FS 160 version. These tracks can also be connected to go even longer if needed using the FSV connector. The saw also features an adjustable fit on the guide rail that prevents backlash, and allows it to be used on other standard tracks from brands like Festool, Bosch, and Makita.
When put to the test against other brands, the KT 18 LTX 66 BL created way less dust than it’s competition. That’s because the dust extractor used with this saw is one of the best on the market. You can use the the saw with the large volume dust sack or connect it to a vacuum to keep your workshop as clean as possible. The sawdust ejection nozzle can be individually turned and locked in any working position to keep it running, or automatically switched on and off with Metabo’s CordlessControl accessory.
