MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool delivers the fastest cutting 18-volt circular saw on the market with the introduction of the M18 FUEL™ 6-1/2” Circular Saw. Able to perform applications that were once only completed by its corded counterparts, the new tool offers 30% faster cutting, 2X more run-time, and 3X more motor life than the competition.
As with all M18 FUEL™ products, the new circular saw was engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance in a compact structure, M18 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability.
The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power more efficiently, giving the M18 FUEL™ Circular Saw the ability to deliver 30% faster cutting at the same level of power as some corded saws. It is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool to deliver years of maintenance-free performance with no wearable components, no losses due to vibration and less heat build-up.
REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence hardware and software is the most advanced electronic system on the market. It 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.
Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 batteries provide up to 2X more run-time and recharges than standard Lithium-Ion batteries and will provide more work per charge, and more work over the life of the pack than competitive batteries. With Milwaukee® durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 battery operates cooler and performs in climates below 0°F/-18°C with fade free power. A battery fuel gauge also displays remaining charge for less down time on the job.
The M18 FUEL™ 6-1/2” Circular Saw also features a cast magnesium shoe, as well as upper and lower guards to provide a durable and lightweight base. In addition, the new cordless tool features an integrated LED light, and a rafter hook for easy storage on the job. All M18 FUEL™ products include the new multi-voltage charger to allow users to charge all M12™ and M18™ batteries with one charger.
Available in October of 2013, the new M18 FUEL™ 6-1/2” Circular Saw is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology. For more information on M18 FUEL™, please visit http://www.milwaukeetool.com/system/m18-fuel.
