Milwaukee Tool’s new M12 Fuel Hatchet 6-inch pruning saw has the power to cut 3-inch hardwoods, and delivers up to 120 cuts per charge. This saw will be available in August 2020.

“While chainsaws are typically the ‘go-to’ solution for cutting hardwoods, they don’t deliver accessibility and maneuverability in tight access areas to make controlled cuts,” said Tony Buxton, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Weighing less than 5 lbs. and featuring a compact design, the M12 Fuel Hatchet 6-inch pruning saw provides landscape professionals with much-needed control while delivering less fatigue. In addition, this tool completes cuts in demanding applications up to 5x faster than hand saws.”

The Hatchet features three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations — the Powerstate brushless motor, Redlithium battery pack and Redlink Plus Intelligence hardware and software.

The Powerstate brushless motor delivers the power to complete cuts in hardwood materials, while the Redlink Plus Intelligence enables full-circle communication between the tool and battery. This advanced electronic package also delivers instant throttle response and a variable speed trigger providing ultimate control over the power range. When equipped with the M12 Redlithium XC4.0Ah battery, the Hatchet delivers enough run time to complete full applications, with the ability to make up to 120 cuts per charge in 2-inch oak.

The M12 Fuel Hatchet features a 6-inch Oregon bar and chain. The chain leverages a full-house design with a cutter on every drive link as opposed to every other drive link on a standard saw chain. This full-house design delivers cleaner cuts and less vibration. The tool also features an automatic oiler, easy access chain tensioner, metal bucking spikes, and onboard storage for the scrench.
