The M18 FUEL 7-1/4″ Circular Saw (2732-21HD) 12.0Ah | Cut The Cord (figuratively, please)

Available this July for only $399, the M18 7-1/4″ Circ Saw Kit with the POWERSTATE brushless motor provides 5,800RPM and offers up to 750 cuts per charge.  Continue reading

Can Milwaukee M18 Chain Saw 2727-21HD Replace Gas?

Launching very soon, July 2018, the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 16” Chain Saw 2727-21HD ($399) will be hitting the streets with the new 12.0Ah High Output batteries. The big question on everyone’s mind seems to be can this 18V cordless chain saw beat 36V, 40V, 54V, 60V, 80V but most importantly gas saws? Sure everyone would love to stop messing with gas engines and use a simple battery but a few important things have hindered them taking over the market. Most importantly Power, Price & Runtime! Milwaukee is not first to market here with a cordless chain saw that uses a tool battery but believe they can now address all 3 of these concerns. Continue reading

Milwaukee NPS18 What is Coming & What We Didn’t See

Milwaukee NPS18

We’re going to start this off with what we didn’t see at Milwaukee’s NPS18 event before jumping into all the good stuff. Of course everyone has a ton of wants, needs and guess on what new products are getting launched at these events but they can only do so much. Steve Richman, Milwaukee’s President got up and said the answer is YES we are going to make that; for pretty much any (logical) tool you are asking about just a matter of time. So For this year’s event no M18 tracksaw, no M18 trim routers, no cordless M18 framing nailer, no new M18 drain cleaning/plumbing, no M18 lawn mower and no revival of the Titan Workcarts. But we did see a ton of exciting stuff and PRE-SALE M18 Tools are already up!!!!

Milwaukee Carbide Circular Saw Blades Reboot

Milwaukee Circular Saw Blades

As we speak Milwaukee is shipping their new line up of Carbide Circular Saw Blades for wood-cutting and fiber cement with polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tips which covers just about any size and application for construction. From 5-3/8” to 12” with basic rip blades to 100 teeth finish blades, they got all the bases covered. This is a very logical step for Milwaukee with what must be hundreds of thousands of circular saws, miter saws and hopefully someday they’ll have a table saw as well, all those saws need blades. It doesn’t make any sense for them not to have a premium blade lineup.
