Milwaukee has recently introduced their new M18 cordless 5-3/8″ metal cutting saw that is powered by their new RedLithium battery technology. The new saw features a 4-pole frameless 3600 RPM motor allowing it to deliver up to 35% more cutting power.
These improvements in battery and motor tech mean faster cuts and longer run time, with the compact and lightweight body leading to greater control and less fatigue. The new saw is said to be able to make more than 200 cuts of 3/4″ EMT per charge – how’s that for run-time!
The saw also features a extra large cut guide, impact resistant window, LED light for improved line of sight, a toll-free depth adjustment for cutting depths 1/8″ to 2″, a stainless steel shoe for reduced chip build up and to prevent marring.
A Metal Tech 5-3/8″ 30T carbide-tipped blade (20mm arbor) is included with the saw kit, for cutting through ferrous materials such as metal conduit, sheet metal and angle iron. A non-ferrous blade is also available separately.
The metal saw kit (2682-22) includes the tool, cutting blade, two M18 XC high capacity Red Lithium batteries, a 1-hour charger and a contractor bag. The bare tool (2682-20) includes just the saw and cutting blade.
