Milwaukee® Introduces the Industry’s First Double Bevel 18V Slide Mitre Saw with Corded Capacity and Performance

Harnessing the extreme performance of M18 FUEL combined with the revolutionary power and run time of the new M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH DEMAND 9.0 Battery Pack, Milwaukee® is able to introduce the industry’s first double bevel 254 mm 18V slide mitre saw to deliver corded capacity and performance, with the convenience of cordless portability.

“Corded mitre saws make up most of today’s market because there really has been no cordless option available that could fully replace a corded unit’s power and capacity,” said Richard Powell, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By combining our advanced framework of motors and electronics with the new M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH DEMAND 9.0 Ah battery pack, we’re taking our FUEL technology and delivering a full-size, full-capacity mitre saw that operates off just one battery – a true game-changer for our users! And we’re able to deliver all of this with a tool that operates on the same M18 platform our users have come to know and depend on, so there’s no loss of productivity. Up until now, no other cordless mitre saw has been able to provide this combination of power, capacity, performance and run time in one portable package.”

M18-FMS254-1The new Mitre Saw has the capacity to complete a wide range of core applications, from frame to finish, including 146 mm vertical capacity for cutting large base up against the fence,

91 mm x 281 mm horizontal capacity for cutting stair treads and large stock. With an easy-to-access bevel handle located on top of the saw, users can reach a bevel capacity of 48° left and right and utilise 9 bevel detent stops. An adjustable stainless steel detent plate includes 11 detent stops and allows a mitre range of 50° left and 60° right. A detent override lets the user lock the saw in place for more control when a cut is needed at an uncommon angle.

With best-in-class power, the new Mitre Saw is designed to deliver 4000 RPM for smooth, fast cuts. When equipped with Milwaukee®’s revolutionary M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH DEMAND 9.0 Ah battery pack it can power through up to 400 cuts on just one charge, eliminating the hassle of switching out battery packs multiple times during the day and exceeding what’s possible on multi-battery mitre saws.

M18-FMS254-2At only 20.0 kg, and with integrated side and top carry handles, users have the option of taking this capacity and performance wherever their work takes them. Because it can be easily carried to and from the jobsite, setup and cleanup times are faster, increasing productivity. With no cords to wrestle with, users can work anywhere they need to without worrying about staying close to a power source.

The new M18 FUEL Mitre Saw is a true testament to Milwaukee®’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that will truly deliver breakthrough solutions for users.

*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-ION 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.
