With an exclusive four-pole frameless motor that delivers up to 35 percent more cutting power, this compact and lightweight cutting tool offers the fastest cuts, longest run time and greatest control for the electrical, mechanical, plumbing and general construction contractor.

“Metal saws continue to be a growing category in the cordless tool market because they deliver an effective combination of cut quality, portability and speed,” said Adam Purcell, associate product manager for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. “The M18 Cordless 5-3/8 inch metal saw not only provides a fast, clean cut when compared to alternative metal cutting tools, it also delivers up to 40 percent longer run-time than the competition and provides unparalleled speed and productivity for the professional tradesman.”

Powered by RED LITHIUM battery technology, the new saw delivers high run-time with over 200 cuts of 3/4 inch EMT per charge. To ensure superior cut accuracy, an extra-large cut guide, impact resistant window and LED light improve line of sight.
