MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver industry leading cordless innovation with the introduction of the first cordless reciprocating saw to deliver true corded performance without the cord. Delivering up to 2X more run time, 30% faster cutting and 5X longer tool life, the M18 FUEL™ SAWZALL® reciprocating saw is the most powerful 18V cordless reciprocating saw on the market.
“Milwaukee invented the recip saw in 1951, and the SAWZALL® has led the industry in both durability and performance for over 60 years,” says Christian Coulis, Director of Marketing for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “With the renowned reputation and history of the SAWZALL, coupled with Milwaukee’s expertise and leadership in cordless technology, we are very proud to deliver a new SAWZALL that will truly be a game changer for the industry. ”
As with all M18 FUEL™ products, the new SAWZALL® 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™ SAWZALL® 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 deliver best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions. 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™ SAWZALL recip saw also features Milwaukee’s patented gear protecting clutch and mechanism design which is responsible for delivering the legendary performance and durability found only in the corded SAWZALL® until now. With the combination of this mechanism , the POWERSTATE brushless motor and REDLINK PLUS, the new tool provides up to 5X longer life than competitive units.
In addition, the new cordless tool features an adjustable shoe, an integrated LED light, and a hang 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™ SAWZALL® Recip 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.
