Milwaukee Tool launched a new M18 Fuel circular saw kit, model 2732-21HO.
This isn’t a new circular saw; it’s just a new and less expensive kit option.
The 2732 is an M18 Fuel brushless 7-1/4″ circular saw that’s advertised as delivering the cutting power of a 15A corded saw.
It features a 5800 RPM motor, electric brake for quickly stopping the blade, an all-magnesium guard and shoe, and a built-in rafter hook.
Previously, Milwaukee offered the 2732 M18 Fuel circular as a tool-only and as part of a kit, 2732-21HD, where it’s bundled with a 12Ah battery, Rapid charger (M18/M12), and tool bag.
This new kit, 2732-21HO, features the saw bundled with an XC 6Ah battery, standard M18/M12 charger, and a tool bag.
The HD kit is priced at $449, while the new HO kit is priced at $299 at the time of this posting.
To highlight the differences:
2732-21HD Kit: 12Ah battery, Rapid charger for $449
2732-21HO Kit (NEW): 6Ah battery, standard charger for $299
The 6Ah HO (High Output) battery is a 10-cell battery pack, while the 12Ah HD HO battery has 15 Li-ion cells.
Is this a holiday season “special buy” that escaped my attention until now, or a new addition to Milwaukee’s regular product catalog? Either way, it seemed newsworthy.
