Milwaukee Tool announced today the M18 FUEL Metal Circular Saw. Purported to be the fastest cordless metal-cutting circular saw on the market, this saw is sure to turn some heads.

As a commercial contractor specializing in concrete and steel, we use metal cutting saws quite a bit. Not only on the job site but in the shop too. In the shop, we use the Milwaukee corded metal circular saw. If the cordless version is as good as the corded one, Milwaukee has a hit on their hands.

Milwaukee® Introduces the Industry’s Fastest-Cutting Cordless Metal Circular Saw


MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to bring performance-driven solutions to the professional trades with the introduction of the M18 FUEL™ Metal-Cutting Circular Saw. By harnessing the extreme performance of M18 FUEL™, Milwaukee is able to deliver a solution that cuts faster than any other cordless metal-cutting circular saw on the market.Milwaukee M18 Metal Circular Saw-4

As part of the M18 FUEL™* lineup, the Metal-Cutting Circular Saw features three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence – to deliver breakthrough performance, run-time and durability.

The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power more efficiently. This gives the M18 FUEL™ Metal-Cutting Circular Saw the ability to deliver the power and speed needed to minimize bogging down during applications, while completing cuts other 18V saws cannot. With the capacity to cut through a wide range of small diameter metal, the M18 FUEL™ Metal-Cutting Circular Saw delivers faster cuts than its cordless predecessor, and other leading cordless metal-cutting circular saws. The new Metal-Cutting Circular Saw also features a lightweight housing and gearing system that delivers the legendary performance and durability found in Milwaukee’s high performance corded circular saws. This combination of no wearable components and superior durability means users will service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership.Milwaukee M18 Metal Circular Saw-1

As the most advanced electronic system on the market, REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger to protect them from overloading, overheating, and over-discharging. These protections help maintain ideal conditions for maximum application performance.

When equipped with an M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Battery Pack the tool provides industry-leading run-time with the ability to make up to 40% more cuts on one charge than other cordless metal-cutting circular saws available today, including up to 370 cuts in EMT.Milwaukee M18 Metal Circular Saw-5

Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. This new tool is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 125 power tool products.
