Metabo HPT 18V 4-Tool SubCompact Cordless Combo Kit Deal!
A reader wrote in about an excellent Holiday 2022 deal on a Metabo HPT 18V SubCompact 4-tool cordless power tool combo kit.
The kit comes with a cordless drill, impact driver, one-handed reciprocating saw, and oscillating multi-tool, plus batteries, charger, and tool bag.
I’m looking at this combo for the last couple days, and more I look more I feel that this is a VERY GOOD deal for the money.
Three of these tools went for $179 a year-and-a-half ago, and it was a very good deal back then.
Now you have three brushless tools, three of the tools are compact/subcompact, and this is the first time you get two 2 Ah Metabo HPT batteries with charge indicators.
Subcompact brushless drill and driver – I’d say, $120 for this pair, with these new batteries and a charger – would be a fantastic price.
The compact (not brushless though) reciprocating saw – I have never seen it for less than $85. This leaves $44 for a brushless OMT. If I would not have an equivalent collection of tools already, I would definitely go for this set.
I wholeheartedly agree! Metabo HPT’s superb best-of-Black Friday drill and Triple Hammer impact driver kit is also still ongoing ($129 at Amazon), and it might have distracted me from the SubCompact line.
All of the tools feature brushless motors. Following are quick highlights for reach:
Cordless Drill: 485 in-lbs max torque, 1700 RPM, weighs 1.9 lbs.
Impact Driver: 1240 in-lbs max torque, weighs 1.8 lbs, 3200 RPM.
Reciprocating Saw: 2100 SPM, 121 cuts per charge, weighs 2.9 lbs, accepts reciprocating or jigsaw blades.
Oscillating Multi-Tool: variable speed, 20K max OPM, weighs 3 pounds, tool-free blade change.
And… what’s that about the batteries having a built-in fuel gauge?
A scan of my inbox shows that I missed a bit of important news in October!!
The DDXS series featuring the same compact tools, but now with better 2.0Ah batteries that feature battery charge indicators and add 30% more runtime compared to the initial DDX series.
Ah, so the batteries are 2Ah compared to 1.5Ah, and have built-in fuel gauges.
Seems like a great deal!
What do you guys think? Can you find a better deal for the money?
Thank you to Vards for the heads-up!
