Cordless Alliance System

This product is part of the Cordless Alliance System. CAS means one battery for everything, 100% compatibility for machines, rechargeable battery packs and rechargers – regardless of manufacturer. World's most powerful battery system with 30 years of battery expertise from Metabo. Maximum reliability, clear cost benefits and a sound investment.

Battery technology

LiHD rechargeable battery technology means more power, service life and runtime. It charges reliably using process-controlled charging and discharging management. By cells being protected by minimal temperature build-up and permanent electronic single cell protection (ESCP), even when used over very long periods. The result: high-quality materials and intelligent battery management combined with brushless motors and power-head technology mean longer runtimes. The rechargeable battery pack's outer rubber coating also provides secure and non-slip stability as well as impact protection.

For any application

We offer 5 different cutters: The CR cutter is ideal for processing stainless steel. The curve cutter cuts with excellent contouring. The spiral cutter is ideal for spiral ducts and cuts even sheet thicknesses of up to 0.14 in. quickly. There are two different cutters available for straight cuts: One cutter for processing thin sheets of up to 1.5 mm and one further cutter for use on sheet thicknesses of 1.5 – 2.5 mm

Flat sheet

For cutting and trimming flat sheets. For radial and interior cutouts, as well as notches.


For cutting C-L-U profiles and longitudinal cuts in profile sheets.

Spiral ducts

For cutting spiral ducts. For sheet thicknesses of 4 x 0.9 mm or 6 x 0.6 mm in mild steel, and 4 x 0.6 mm in stainless steel.

Power-Head Technology

The light metal gear head's ingenious design is specially adapted to the low voltage battery technology. Decoupling the motor pinion from the motor minimizes energy loss and ensures even higher performance per battery charge.

Brushless motor

The powerful BL motor generates higher torques than conventional motors, requires less power and generates hardly any heat. This has a positive effect on the battery life and lets you get the most out of every battery charge. Additional advantage: The service life of a BL motor is almost unlimited because they work without carbon brushes and therefore no mechanical friction occurs. The result: almost wear-free motors and hardly any maintenance.

Compact and powerful

The 18V rechargeable battery tool has a lightweight design enabling fatigue-free working. The soft grip ensures safe and low-vibration working. All TRUMPF rechargeable battery tools are also available as stand-alone versions, i.e. without rechargeable batteries and recharger. If you already have CAS batteries available, you then have the option to save on resources and cut costs.

Optimal working speed

You can use the speed controller to adjust the working speed to suit the individual cutting task. It is extremely efficient if you work in accordance with the predefined cutting lines or a template. It is also well-suited to frequent processing of radii and stainless steel. The electronic overload protection offers yet another notable benefit.
