The Metabo HPT 7-¼” Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw boasts impressive features and runtime, but it didn’t get all high marks in our testing. Read our in-depth review on the Metabo HPT Miter Saw to see how its features, specs, and pricing stack up.

Sliding compound miter saws are among the most versatile saws on the market. They’ve come a long way since Hitachi (now Metabo HPT) created the category in 1988. The best ones are accurate, powerful, portable, and reliable.

A few years ago, I tested eight 10-in. dual-bevel sliding compound miter saws and found one of Metabo HPTs to be among the most accurate of them. So, I had high hopes for this new cordless 36V model (C3607DRAQ4), which is made in Japan. I put the saw through a series of objective tests, and to use on my remodeling projects. We also put it to use on Sweenor Builders job sites for several months.
