Milwaukee’s M18 FUEL 8-1/4-in. Table Saw with ONE-KEY™ is the world’s first 18-volt table saw. It runs on a newly redesigned POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor that delivers 6,300 rpm — enough power to equal a 15-amp corded saw. The motor is powered by one of Milwaukee’s new M18 REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Ah batteries, which provides 50 percent more power, runs 50 percent cooler and delivers 33 percent more runtime than their 9.0 Ah batteries in the line.
With a rip capacity of up to 24-1/2-in. and able to cut up to 2-1/2-in.-thick material, the table saw can rip up to 600 lineal feet of material on a single charge, Milwaukee reports. The REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence electronics, also newly redesigned, ensures maximum performance and protects against overloading and overheating. The 45.8-pound saw (battery installed) has an all-metal frame and rack-and-pinion rip fence. Other features include one-wrench blade change, tool-free guard and riving knife changes and onboard accessory storage.
Compatible with ONE-KEY™, the table saw’s integrated Bluetooth wirelessly connects to a smart phone using Milwaukee’s ONE-KEY app to track and manage its performance and location. Paired with tracking, ONE-KEY’s Integrated Tool Security provides the ultimate theft protection with features like tool lock-out: if the saw is lost or stolen, you can render it useless by sending a remote command to the tool to shut itself off the next time it comes within range of any ONE-KEY™ app.
The saw comes with a battery, multi-voltage charger and general purpose blade. Milwaukee’s M18 FUEL 8-1/4-in. Table Saw (model 2736-21HD) sells for $549.
