Insert your favorite Heavy Metal hair band jam HERE, more fireworks and motorcycles… BOOM!! Yes, it’s official, a full size 8” metal cutting saw is coming to the Milwaukee M18 FUEL platform with the 2982-21 (kit) & 2982-20 (bare). While the M18 FUEL 5-3/8” saws have been great for cutting metal in a lot of applications, sometimes you just need that larger 2-9/16” cut capacity and a lot more power. Now, you no longer need to drag around a cord by going back to the corded Milwaukee 8” 6370-21 ($319).
The new M18 FUEL 8” metal saw is designed to outperform the 15amp corded version with a beefier FUEL brushless motor that claims 30% faster cutting speed than it’s competitors. This saw is really ideal for 1” thick plate steel, 2” black pipe, corrugated decking, I-beams and other seriously tough applications. The 2982-21 ($549) kit will come with the 8.0Ah high output battery which will allow for 120’ of cutting in corrugated decking, intended for near continuous use with minimal battery switching. Equipped with an overload indicator light as well as overload protection which will turn the saw off and let you know when you’re pushing too hard. As you would expect, this saw deflects and collects metal chips and sparks similar to other Milwaukee metal saws.
This saw includes a 8″ 42 tooth Milwaukee Metal Cutting Blade. We would expect more new blade options to follow shortly after this launch. The saw will be hitting shelves in April 2020 but available for Pre-Sale starting now at OhioPowerTool.com.
