At the recent Milwaukee Tool #NPS17 Event we got a first look at this new M18 Compact 7-1/4″ Miter Saw 2733-21 ($499, September). It shares a lot of the look and feel with the larger M18 FUEL 10″ Miter Saw 2734-21HD ($599) however focuses on a more compact lightweight design getting down to 28 lbs for maximum portability. In our mind the benefit of a cordless miter saw is portability, cordless doesn’t make any sense for a shop saw but perfect for going on and off the jobsite. Both of these saws work very well with the new Milwaukee Folding Miter Stand 48-08-0551 ($199) which actually weights a little more than the compact saw!
We’ve talked with dozens of pros who have gotten their hands on the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 10″ miter and the response has been overall very positive however power has been a concern for larger applications and dust collection is weak being off the base. The M18 7-1/4″ saw eliminates both potential issues as the 18V motor is well equipped to handle this size blade and dust collection has been moved to directly behind the blade.

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to revolutionize the tool industry with the introduction of the industry’s most portable cordless miter saw, the M18 FUEL™ 7-1/4” Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw. By harnessing the power and run-time that only M18 FUEL™ technology can provide*, the new saw delivers maximum portability, productivity, and performance to the carpenter and remodeler.
At only 28lbs with battery, the M18 FUEL™ 7-1/4” Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is ideal for professionals who need easy transportation on, off, and around the jobsite for punch list or callback work. Integrated side and top carry handles make it easy to carry, setup, and cleanup, increasing productivity. With no cords to wrestle with, users can work anywhere they need to without worrying about staying close to a power source. When used in conjunction with Milwaukee’s newest Miter Saw Stand, the Miter Saw still comes in at a mere 59 lbs – allowing users to simply take this capacity and performance wherever their work takes them and be ready to make the next cut.
The new Miter Saw is also the only 7-1/4” solution in its class with the ability to bevel both left and right. With a max bevel angle of 48° both left and right, users can quickly and easily make angled cuts without unnecessary extra steps. An adjustable stainless steel detent plate includes 11 detent stops and a detent override lets the user lock the saw in place for more control when a cut is needed at any uncommon angle. The new Miter Saw has the capacity to complete a range of core finishing applications, including 3-1/2” Vertical Capacity for cutting base up against the fence, 2×8 Horizontal Capacity, and 3-5/8” Crown Nested for cutting crown molding in position.
With best-in-class power, the new Miter Saw is designed to deliver 5,000 RPM for smooth, fast cuts. When equipped with Milwaukee’s revolutionary M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC 5.0 Battery Pack it can power to complete over 600 cuts in 3-1/4” base board and up to 300 cuts in 2×4 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 miter saws.
Because lasers have a tendency to be inaccurate, inconsistent and often difficult to see, the Miter Saw also features a Shadow Cut Line Indicator for improved accuracy. An LED directs light onto both sides of the blade, casting a crisp shadow the width of the blade kerf that is also easy to view in sunlight.
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. This new tool is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool products.
