The M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw delivers half to a full days run-time on one charge and provides the same legendary durability that has made Milwaukee Corded Deep Cut Band Saws second to none for decades. This combination of performance, durability, and run-time eliminates the need for a cord in most environments.
“Milwaukee Band Saws have been the industry standard for professional tradesmen for years, but until now, there has never been a Cordless unit that could truly keep up with its corded counterparts,” says Andrew Plowman, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With the M18 FUEL Band Saw, users can seamlessly make the shift from corded to cordless units without sacrificing performance and durability.”
To achieve maximum durability, the new Band Saw focuses on a combination of external and internal components. Externally, Job Site Armor Technology protects the tool from drops and debris with a proprietary composite material and crush zone barriers to absorb impacts. Internally, an all metal direct drive system provides maximum tool life, and requires less servicing than the chain drive alternative. A gear protecting clutch extends gear and motor life by absorbing high impact forces caused by blade lock-ups, and the completely sealed design of the direct drive protects the internal gears from water and debris contamination over time.
As with all M18 FUEL products, the new Band Saw was engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, M18 FUEL products feature three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM XC4.0 Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS Intelligence Hardware and Software— that deliver performance, durability, and run-time.
The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power more efficiently. Coupled with Constant Power Technology, this gives the M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw the ability to deliver faster cutting speeds than corded units. The motor is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool to deliver years of maintenance-free performance with no wearable components, no losses due to vibration and less heat build-up.
REDLINK PLUS Intelligence hardware and software is the most advanced electronic system on the market. It integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger to protect them from overloading, overheating, and over-discharging. These protections help maintain ideal conditions for maximum application performance.
Milwaukee REDLITHIUM XC4.0 batteries provide up to 2X more run-time and recharges than standard Lithium-Ion batteries and deliver best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions. With Milwaukee durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM XC4.0 battery operates cooler and performs in climates below 0°F with fade free power. A battery fuel gauge also displays remaining charge for less down time on the job.
In addition, the new cordless tool features a tool-free locking adjustable shoe that can adjust from an extended shoe to no shoe in seconds. Other innovative features include a hang hook for easy storage in-between cuts, LED light to illuminate the cutting area, superior cut visibility, and a balanced body design that allows the tool to rest naturally and comfortably in the user’s hands.
