Metabo's history stretches over more than three quarters of a century. It is mainly the history of a search for the most robust products with the longest service life. In 1924, at the eve of the economic depression of those times, Albrecht Schnizler, a baker's son, and his business partner Julius Closs co-founded Schnizler GmbH. They wanted to manufacture tools that would meet the higher demands of an increasingly engineered world better than most of the tools that existed at that time.

Had a minor flap this morning when I realised the image shown on the selling page showed the 2011 machine - so
I e-mailed Amazon, and the third-party seller ... To cut a long story short, the box that turned up WAS the later
machine - a big green box - I think the earlier packaging was in white boxes... the carrying handles differ, and
the positioning of the laser. Doubt there's many of the 2011s still with retailers, but worth being aware of.
I'm going to give 4 out of 5 stars - Here's why...
Generally speaking the machine feels quite good quality - it is certainly a world away from the 'own brand'
cheapies, if not as polished as the more expensive options, but at around 150 quid, that's surely fair!
Little things can be picked up on - the white markings where the polystyrene has scrubbed into the
paint of the feet, the odd area where there's a minor scratch or defect - but these things are (at least in
my own product) very small, and something I am happy to overlook.
MORE IMPORTANTLY - the cut.
The pictures I've taken are from 'OUT OF THE BOX' -
and I have to say the accuracy is VERY good. See images with butt ends against square.
There is some hairs' breadth gap in some of the cut line - but I think properly set up, I will be
able to dial this out - there's some useful set up guides on YouTube, if you're not familiar with
UPDATE / Edit ---- compound angled cuts -
When I first looked over the machine, I was a little concerned that the teeth
were very near to the inner edge of the plastic trim, running down the mitre arm.
I've since had a better look, and there IS adequate clearance.
When time allows, I hope to run some more cuts, and I'll post a couple more pics,
but I want to check over the set up first - not much to do by the looks of it, but it
may be best gone over at the weekend, when I've got more time.
Key tip for the compound cuts - **remember** to slide the left side fence
across... Prone to wondering if some of the commentary re: damaged fences
is because people are forgetting to move it? I can't see any scope for damage,
otherwise? Easily done perhaps, if you're not a frequent/experienced user?
You'll see (hopefully) 2 images with a piece of wood **not** resting in the cutting position,
but I found I could better make the laser and work light stand out here - and even then
it may not be very clear. But I think if there's not very good lighting in your work area,
both of these functions might be well worth having - time will tell.
I have seen other commentary suggesting the laser is an utter waste of time - but I for one
always go by a pencil line anyway, so am not overly bothered one way of the other. + I think
the laser can be adjusted, so it's possible some of the negative comments are from those
that haven't, or couldn't be bothered to adjust its beam.
Edit - re: work light - have to say this is a real plus point for me.
The lighting in my workshop isn't brilliant, and with todays overcast sky, it was
a very welcome addition.
The work piece anchor - a bit awkward to use, but if I do end up making a station for this
unit, I'll probably do as I do with larger M/Ss and make a fit-for-purpose 'workshop special'..
Would I recommend - YES - it's a much better bet than the cheaper options, and think it
will require minimal setting up.
P:S: the 3rd party seller in my case was Scotland's 'ToolStop' -
good service generally, but 1 thing I did like - their courier was one that 1: gave a time slot
for delivery, and 2: had one of those map thingies on their website, so you could see where the
van was.... MUCH better than 'between 8 and 6'!
1. Price (around 150 quid for something MUCH better than the own brand cheapies!)
2. Build quality generally
3. Accuracy of straight cuts - out of the box
4. Reassurance of buying from a major brand (recent buyout's another story....)
5: Common size centres for blades - easy to find, cheaper than the 'funny' sizes
6: Good number of teeth in included blade - nice cut from the off
7: seems likely to only need minor fettling
8: Good guarrantee - 3 years if I remember rightly.
9: Parts availability. (Try getting a thingymijig for a B & Q special?!)
1. Some small areas where finish isn't quite spot on
And, really only something to be aware of...
2. Minor confusion re: outgoing and later models - but easy enough to establish, with a little homework, and
contacting seller to make sure you're getting the latest/later model
Hope this helps other people, as I spent quite a long time agonising over which model
and make to plumb for! ;-)
It is an excellent saw, very well made (in China) and required no adjustments at all once unpacked. It was accurate out of the box with well machined surfaces, an aligned laser and smooth slider bars. The fence, blade and mitre angle positions were all measured using a Wixey digital gauge and were all spot on, which is more than can be said about my Kapex. The supplied blade is more than capable but I have replaced it with a finer cut one and it is easy to change using the supplied hex key.
There are several features on the saw which add to its all round versatility; the end supports can be removed and placed further away from the saw for longer pieces and the right hand support has an adjustable stop to aid repeat cuts. The trenching facility is a simple, but very effective, adjustable bolt with a push/pull stop and the work clamp has a quick release button. The motor is not a soft start one but it is reasonably quiet for a brushed motor. It doesn't have electronic speed control but it has not struggled in the slightest on oak, ash or larch. It is not an instant brake saw but the blade stops quickly. The safety guard lever and power switch are well positioned and intuitive to use.
This saw is at the budget end of the market but it's design, capacity and overall build quality seperates it from its peers. A comprehensive 3 year warranty adds to the overall package and as the owner of several Metabo tools, some of which are over 30 years old, I am very impressed with the performance and even more impressed at the price I paid.
