Milwaukee Tool M12 FUEL 3″ Compact Cut Off Tool | Cut Through Metal, Tile, Drywall and Cement!

I’ve been patiently waiting since NPS18 to get my hands on this. I’m the guy that uses a Grinder to cut everything. I rarely use a Grinder for what it’s intended for, which is, well, grinding. This 3″ Cut Off Tool from Milwaukee is a perfect addition to my toolbox. It’s compact design and rubber gripped handle make for perfect one-hand operation. 

It seems to slice right through any application you throw at it. Tyson Apfelbeck, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool boasts the 2522 Cut Off Tool’s “cutting performance and versatility allow it to easily replace many cutting tools that require two hands.” Which certainly seems accurate from the product demonstration above and a general Material use range table provided from Milwaukee below.

Full Press Release: Milwaukee Tool is proud to introduce a unique new professional-grade solution for making fast and accurate cuts through a wide array of materials – the M12 FUEL™ 3” Compact Cut Off Tool. By harnessing the power, performance and run-time of M12 FUEL™ technology*, the new tool can tackle materials ranging from metal and steel, to drywall, cement board, and tile. Its one-handed, in-line design provides exceptional control and visibility through cuts, and it is the only cordless tool of its kind with reversible blade rotation.

“While multi-material cutting tools are not new to the market, there are only a select few that have been engineered to withstand the demands of the trades, and none of the cordless options provide the level of performance that these users require,” said Tyson Apfelbeck, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The M12 FUEL™ 3” Compact Cut Off Tool changes all that by being the first dedicated cordless multi-material cutting tool designed with the performance needed by the trades. Completely optimized for one-handed use, this tool’s cutting performance and versatility allow it to easily replace many cutting tools that require two hands.”

The M12 FUEL™ 3” Compact Cut Off Tool’s POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor delivers 20,000 RPM. When this motor is paired with Milwaukee’s REDLINK™ Intelligence and REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 Battery Pack, the tool has the cutting performance and speed to tackle various materials without bogging down. For example, it can make 12” cuts in 26ga sheet metal in under 10 seconds and 3” cuts in 3/8” ceramic tile in under 9 seconds.
As the only tool of its kind capable of reversible blade rotation, users can easily control where they eject debris and can optimize the blade for the application at hand. Its in-line design also provides exceptional control in cutting applications while improving line of sight to the material.

Ideal for cutting light to medium gauge metals and various non-metal building materials (tile, drywall, fiber cement, PVC/Plastic, etc.) the M12 FUEL™ 3” Cut Off Tool is the most capable compact cut off tool. Due to its incredible versatility, the tool will come complete with the necessary blade accessories for these applications, so users can get to work quickly and easily.

Available September 2018, the new M12 FUEL™ 3” Compact Cut Off Tool joins the largest sub-compact cordless system in the industry, now offering more than 90 professional solutions focused on power, productivity, and portability.
