Metabo Corp. has introduced the KSAP 18, a cordless 6 1/2-inch
circular saw with a high-efficiency motor said to provide more cuts
per charge than any saw in its class. The saw's design is said to
reduce operator fatigue by keeping the user's wrist in line, and
the rubber-coated handle is said to improve operator handling.
The KSAP 18 uses an air-cooled battery system said to cool the
battery and charger and result in 30 percent faster charging and an
increased service life of up to 2,000 charges. Other features
include a spindle-stop system said to allow for easy changes of
standard 6 1/2- by 5/8-inch saw blades; bevel plate said to provide
bevel cuts up to 47 degrees; and integrated dust extraction port
for hookup to a vacuum, which is said to minimize cleanup time and
