Metabo Corporation has recently released their new KSA18 LTX cordless circular saw and ASE18 LTX 18V cordless reciprocating saw. Both are powered with 18-volt Li-Power Extreme batteries and include Metabo’s patented air-cooled battery system, which cools both the battery and the charger to keep the battery temperature level during charging. This extends battery life and shortens charge time. The KSA18 LTX 6-1/2" circular saw ($409) has a maximum cutting depth of 27⁄64" at 90° and 1-5⁄8" at 45°, a no-load speed of 2,700 rpm and bevel cutting to 50 degrees. On the ASE18 LTX reciprocating saw, a tool-less adjustable shoe means you can use the entire length of the blade evenly to extend its life. The 18"-long tool weighs 7.9 pounds and delivers 0-2,700 strokes per minute, with a stroke length of 11⁄16". As of 2011, suggested price is $419.
