New M12 FUEL™ HATCHET™ 6” Pruning Saw Delivers Better Maneuverability Than Chainsaws in Tight Access Areas

MILWAUKEE, WI- By harnessing the portable productivity, performance and run-time that they can deliver through M12 FUEL™ technology*, Milwaukee introduces the M12 FUEL™ HATCHET™ 6” Pruning Saw. The HATCHET™ delivers unmatched control and access, has the power to cut 3” hardwoods, and delivers up to 120 cuts per charge.

“While chainsaws are typically the ‘go-to’ solution for cutting hardwoods, they don’t deliver accessibility and maneuverability in tight access areas to make controlled cuts,” said Tony Buxton, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Weighing less than 5 lbs and featuring a compact design, the M12 FUEL™ HATCHET™ 6” Pruning Saw provides landscape professionals with much-needed control while delivering less fatigue. In addition, this tool completes cuts in demanding applications up to 5x faster than hand saws.”

 As with all M12 FUEL™ products, the HATCHET™ features three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software.

The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor delivers the power to complete cuts in demanding hardwood materials, while the REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence enables full-circle communication between the tool and battery, allowing for unmatched levels of performance, protection and productivity. This advanced electronic package also delivers instant throttle response and a variable speed trigger providing ultimate control over the power range. When equipped with the M12™ REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0Ah battery, the HATCHET™ delivers enough run-time to complete full applications, with the ability to make up to 120 cuts per charge in 2” oak.

The M12 FUEL™ HATCHET™ features a 6” Oregon® bar & chain. The chain leverages a full-house design with a cutter on every drive link as opposed to every other drive link on a standard saw chain. This full-house design delivers cleaner cuts and less vibration. The tool also features an automatic oiler, easy access chain tensioner, metal bucking spikes, and onboard storage for the scrench.

The new M12 FUEL™ HATCHET™ 6” Pruning Saw joins the M12™ Cordless System, the largest sub-compact system on the market, focused on delivering industry-leading durability and power in the tightest spaces. Currently the M12™ System is made up of more than 100 solutions.

*M12 FUEL™ power tools are designed, engineered, and built to deliver extreme performance and productivity. All M12 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M12 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful sub-compact cordless tools in their class.
