The Next Breakthrough Is Here: The World’s First 18V Table Saw

MARKHAM, ON - Unwavering in their dedication to delivering productivity-enhancing solutions that provide the right blend of power, run-time, and performance, Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the next breakthrough in M18 FUEL™*. The world’s first 18V table saw, the M18 FUEL™ 8-1/4” Table Saw w/ ONE-KEY™ generates the power of a 15amp corded saw and, with a rip capacity of up to 24-1/2”, can rip up to 600 linear feet per charge. Equipped with One-Key™*, users can also easily track, manage, and secure the table saw through the One-Key™ app on their phone.

            “To us at Milwaukee®, M18 FUEL™ is a promise that each tool is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world with the right combination of power, run-time, and performance for the tool and application at hand,” said Tyson Apfelbeck, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Our leadership in cordless technology has advanced to such a point that we can now deliver solutions that were previously untouchable in the 18V space, such as table saws. 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—we were able to create exactly the right blend of cordless technology to finally provide users with a powerful 18V table saw on the same M18™ System they have invested in and rely on.”

 

True to all M18 FUEL™ solutions, the new M18 FUEL™ 8-1/4” Table Saw w/ ONE-KEY™ combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence. However, to deliver the first 18V table saw with the power of 15amp corded, Milwaukee® reengineered these critical cordless components to deliver the very best performance catered to this tool and its applications.

Milwaukee® created a brand-new POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor for this table saw, which delivers 6300 RPM to rip through tough applications without bogging down. With a rip capacity up to 24-1/2” and a vertical capacity up to 2-1/2” to tackle 2x dimensional lumber, this saw boasts the impressive capacity that users have come to expect on a traditional corded table saw. 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 prevents against overload and overheat.

When equipped with Milwaukee’s new M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Battery, the table saw can power through 600 linear feet of material on a single 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 table saw hard and work all day – delivering more work-per-charge than any other professional power tool system.

Through One-Key™ users will be able to track, manage, and secure the table saw. The One-Key™ Integrated Tool Tracking functionality will allow users to identify where and when their table saw was last seen on the jobsite. Records and locations will update when any device with the One-Key™ app comes within 100ft of the saw, allowing the user to quickly pinpoint missing tools. Integrated Tool Security will provide an extra layer of protection to prevent theft and tampering. With Simplified Tool and Equipment Management, users will also have a central place to take inventory of their saw and all other tools and equipment, and keep detailed records of all inventory to easily build a budget and manage spend.

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™ 8-1/4 Table Saw w/ONE-KEY™ is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 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.

*ONE-KEY™ is the first digital platform for tools and equipment. By integrating industry-leading tool electronics with a custom-built cloud based program, ONE-KEY™ provides a new level of control and access to information that revolutionizes the way work gets done. The ability to customize, track, and manage through ONE-KEY™ fundamentally changes the way users interact with their tools.
