Milwaukee® Unveils A Rear Handle Circ Saw – Faster Than Corded, More Run-Time Than Other Cordless Options

MILWAUKEE, WI- Unwavering in their dedication to delivering productivity-enhancing solutions that provide the right blend of power, speed, and run-time, Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the M18 FUEL™ 7-1/4” Rear Handle Circular Saw. The new saw not only generates the power of a 15amp corded saw but it also cuts faster than the leading corded units available in the industry. It also features the most run-time of any cordless rear handle circular saw, capable of making up to 570 cuts in 2x4 per charge.  

True to all M18 FUEL™ solutions, the new M18 FUEL™ 7-1/4” Rear Handle Circular Saw combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence. However, to deliver the first 18V rear handle circular saw that generates the power of 15amp corded, Milwaukee® reengineered these critical cordless components to deliver the very best performance catered to this tool and its applications.

The brand-new POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor delivers 5,800 RPM to rip through tough applications without bogging down. A redesigned REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence package ensures maximum performance of the saw under load and prevents against overload and overheat.

When equipped with Milwaukee’s new M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Battery, the saw can power through up to 570 cuts on just one charge, eliminating the hassle of cords or constant switching-out of multiple battery packs, while exceeding the performance of higher voltage solutions in the industry. The new HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Battery provides 50% more power, runs 50% cooler, and delivers 33% more run-time than the M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HD9.0 Battery. In conjunction with REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence and the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, the HIGH OUTPUT™ Battery allows users to push the saw hard and work all day – delivering more work-per-charge than any other professional power tool system.

The M18 FUEL™ 7-1/4” Rear Handle Circular Saw features a cast magnesium construction to reduce the weight of the tool without sacrificing the legendary durability Milwaukee has long been known for. In addition, it boasts numerous advantages over corded saws in its class including an electric brake to quickly stop the blade after a cut, as well as gears that don’t require oiling.

For added utility, the saw also features an LED work light to help make more accurate cuts and a multi-sized rafter hook for easy storage.

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™ 7-1/4” Rear Handle Circular Saw is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 175 power tool products, and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
