Milwaukee Tool introduced the M18 Fuel 16-inch chain saw has the power to cut hardwoods, cuts faster than gas**, and delivers up to 150 cuts per charge – providing more work-per-charge than any other cordless chain saw available.
“One of the most frequently requested tools by our users has been a Milwaukee chain saw. Unwilling to settle on subpar performance, we continued to advance our cordless technologies until we could provide a solution that truly delivers game-changing power and run-time that outperforms small gas engines and higher voltage systems,” said Andrew Lentz, senior product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Through a ground-up redesign of our electronics, to the manufacture of a powerful new motor and a brand-new powerhouse – the M18 Redlithium High Output HD12.0 battery — our new M18 Fuel 16-inch Chain saw was born.”
Milwaukee created a brand-new Powerstate brushless motor for this chain saw, which sustains power and speed through tough applications without bogging down. Milwaukee also redesigned from the ground-up the Redlink Plus Intelligence featured in this tool, utilizing electronics never used before in power tools. This newly designed Redlink Plus Intelligence package ensures maximum performance of the tool under load and protects against overload and overheat. This electronics package also allows the chain saw to achieve instantaneous throttle response, reaching full speed in under a second.
When equipped with Milwaukee’s new M18 Fuel Redlithium High Output HD12.0 battery, the chain saw can power through up to 150 cuts in 6×6 cedar on just one charge. This eliminates the hassle of switching out battery packs multiple times during the day. 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.
