Milwaukee has officially announced their new M18 Fuel brushless cordless 9-inch cut-off saw, which is powerful enough to cut reinforced concrete. Milwaukee showed off some of what the new saw could do at their NPS19 new tool media event, and it did look impressive.

The new Milwaukee M18 Fuel cut-off saw, 2786, is said to be up to 50% lighter than gas saws of comparable performance. And, since it doesn’t burn fuel, there are none of the headaches typically associated with gas engine tools.
Milwaukee says that the new saw is an extremely versatile solution for cutting a large variety of materials, capable of cutting reinforced concrete, bricks, blocks, and other masonry materials.
The saw can also cut metal construction materials, such as black pipe, cast iron, and rebar.
The saw comes with an abrasive blade for cutting metal, and a diamond blade for cutting masonry materials, so that users can get to work as soon as the tool is out of the box.

Milwaukee added a reminder in press materials that the M18 Switch Tank is a perfect pairing for the new M18 Fuel cut-off saw. The Switch Tank is a cordless-powered 4-gallon backpack water supply that delivers instant, constant, and adjustable water at up to 60 PSI.
The M18 Switch Tank features a dual diaphragm pump, 20-60 PSI pressure range with 5 modes, 0.16 to 1.13 GPM flow rate, and 10′ quick connect hose. It weighs 18.45 lbs with the powered base, tank assembly, and an XC 3.0Ah battery.
Milwaukee says that the saw is an OSHA Table 1 Compliant Solution when paired with the M18 Switch Tank backpack water supply.
To be compliant with the OSHA regulation on respirable crystalline silica dust (29 CFR 1926.1153) companies must prove they are under the PEL by following Table 1 standards, demonstrating objective data, or conducting their own self-monitoring programs, as laid out by OSHA.
