Reinforced Concrete Without the Frustrations of Petrol with the new M18 FUEL™ Cut Off Saw

An extremely versatile solution for cutting a large variety of materials, this tool harnesses M18 FUEL™* cordless technology to deliver the power to cut reinforced concrete without using petrol like most traditional cut off saws. In addition, it’s able to provide this performance whilst being up to 50% lighter than other petrol comparisons.

“This tool is groundbreaking for the industry because it showcases what we’re able to accomplish through M18 FUEL cordless technology. The tremendous power of the M18 FUEL Cut Off Saw with ONE-KEY breaks down so many barriers on the jobsite, allowing users on the M18 system to cut masonry and concrete with a tool that’s fully compatible with their M18 batteries. They’ll experience much less fatigue because this tool is much lighter than many of the leading petrol units. And they’ll be able to perform their jobs without the worry of fumes, the need to mix petrol and oil, and the associated petrol engine maintenance,” said Thorsten Orlik, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.  

True to all M18 FUEL solutions, the new M18 FUEL Cut Off Saw with ONE-KEY combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATEbrushless motor, REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS intelligence. Since it produces no fumes, it can be used indoors. In addition, the saw starts with a squeeze of the trigger instead of repeated pulling on a cord and eliminates the need to mix petrol and oil or maintain a perol engine. Users will experience the power to cut reinforced concrete plus other metal and masonry materials including black pipe, cast iron, rebar, brick, and block. The saw comes with a diamond blade and an abrasive blade so users can get to work as soon as the tool is out of the box.

The saw is also equipped with an array of additional features to improve the user experience including: a RAPIDSTOP brake that stops the blade in under 3 seconds, an overload indicator light which illuminates when users push the saw too hard, and a fully-adjustable blade guard so users can easily position the saw for the cuts they need to make.

When cutting masonry and concrete, most users turn to a water supply with a hand pump. The M18 FUEL Cut Off Saw can be easily paired with the MILWAUKEE® M18 SWITCH TANK 15 l Water Supply. This water supply delivers instant, constant, and adjustable pressure up to 60 PSI and operates off MILWAUKEE®’s M18 REDLITHIUM-ION batteries. In addition, the backpack design of this water supply allows users to change this traditional two-man job into a job that can be accomplished by one person.

As an added benefit, ONE-KEY™** provides the ability to track and manage this tool.

Milwaukee Tool 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. This new tool is part of the M18 system, now offering more than 165 power tool solutions.
