Milwaukee® Develops the First Brushless, 18V One-Handed Reciprocating Saw

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool once again solidifies its leadership in the reciprocating saw category with the introduction of the M18 FUEL™ Hackzall® One-Handed Reciprocating Saw – the first brushless, 18V one-handed recip saw on the market. Combining the power of M18 FUEL™* with a compact, ergonomic design the M18 FUEL™ Hackzall® is the fastest-cutting 18V one-handed recip saw on the market. Delivering up to 3X faster cutting in key plumbing, electrical, and remodeling applications versus other one-handed recip saws, the new tool allows users to make 50% more cuts per charge at up to 4X lower vibration.**  “Ever since we invented the Sawzall®, Milwaukee has been the leader in reciprocating saw innovation. This leadership was further cemented when we created the one-handed reciprocating saw category in 2008 with the introduction of the M12™ Hackzall®. Now, we’re setting the bar even higher by introducing the first brushless 18V one-handed recip saw,” said Tyson Apfelbeck, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With the launch of the M18 FUEL™ Hackzall® we’re bridging the gap between the small, more compact Hackzall® and full-size Sawzall® performance for several key applications including large diameter PVC, 2x dimensional lumber and EMT conduit. For users who primarily perform one-handed cuts, this tool will provide the fastest application speed, and superior control and ergonomics over any other 18V one-handed recip saw on the market today.” 

The new M18 FUEL™ Hackzall® combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence. The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor provides power through tough applications without bogging down. Combined with a 7/8” stroke length, the tool delivers the fastest cuts in its class. When equipped with an M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 battery pack, the tool can deliver up to 180 cuts in 2x4spf and over 220 cuts in ¾” EMT. REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence ensures maximum performance of the tool under load and prevents against overload and overheat.A dual gear counter-balance mechanism and pivoting shoe provide up to 4X lower vibration for faster cut starts and reduced blade chatter in metal and PVC materials, minimizing user fatigue and translating to smoother cuts and increased control.

The Milwaukee® POWERSTATE™ Brushless motor also eliminates wearable components and, along with improved water ingress and debris protection, the tool delivers 3X the tool life over the competition.

Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL™ Hackzall® One-Handed Recip Saw is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool products.

* M18 FUEL™ is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 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, M18 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
