Milwaukee® Introduces Cordless Metal Saw with 35% More Power

        Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands its M18™ LITHIUM-ION system with the new M18™ Cordless 5-3/8" Metal Saw. With an exclusive 4-Pole Frameless Motor that delivers up to 35% more cutting power, this compact and lightweight cutting tool offers the fastest cuts, longest run time and greatest control for the electrical, mechanical, plumbing and general construction contractor.

          “Metal Saws continue to be a growing category in the cordless tool market because they deliver an effective combination of cut quality, portability and speed,” says Adam Purcell, Associate Product Manager for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. “The M18™ Cordless 5-3/8” Metal Saw not only provides a fast, clean cut when compared to alternative metal cutting tools, it also delivers up to 40% longer run-time than the competition and provides unparalleled speed and productivity for the professional tradesman.”

        Powered by groundbreaking REDLITHIUM™ Battery Technology, the new saw delivers unmatched run-time with over 200 cuts of 3/4" EMT per charge. To ensure superior cut accuracy, an extra-large cut guide, impact resistant window and LED light improve line of sight. A tool-free depth adjustment feature quickly and easily adjusts cutting depth from 1/8” - 2”, while a stainless steel shoe reduces chip build-up to prevent surface marring.

        Complete with a METAL TECH™ 5-3/8" 30T Carbide-Tipped Blade, the M18™ Cordless 5-3/8" Metal Saw delivers cool, burr-free cuts through metal conduit, strut, threaded rod, sheet metal, angle iron and other ferrous materials. A 50T METAL TECH™ 5-3/8" 30T Carbide-Tipped blade is also available for cutting copper, aluminum and other non-ferrous materials. 

        The M18™ Cordless Platform continues to be the fastest growing LITHIUM-ION system with over 25 tools to date. Milwaukee® is committed to the ongoing development of this platform and will continue to provide innovative solutions that offer industry leading reliability, performance and ergonomics.
