Milwaukee ToolMilwaukee Tool unveiled the M18 Fuel 16-inch chainsaw.

The chainsaw has the power to cut hardwoods, cuts faster than gas and delivers up to 150 cuts per charge, according to the company.

“One of the most frequently requested tools by our users has been a Milwaukee chainsaw,” said Andrew Lentz, senior product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Unwilling to settle on subpar performance, we continued to advance our cordless technologies until we could provide a solution that truly delivers game-changing power and a runtime that outperforms small gas engines and higher voltage systems.”

The tool’s Powerstate Brushless Motor sustains power and speed through tough applications without bogging down, and the RedLink Plus Intelligence ensures maximum performance of the tool under load and protects against overloading and overheating. The intelligence package also allows the chainsaw to achieve instantaneous throttle response, reaching full speed in under a second.

The new RedLithium HD12.0 Battery provides 50 percent more power, runs 50 percent cooler and delivers 33 percent more runtime than the M18 RedLithium HD9.0 battery.

The chainsaw is fully compatible with the entire M18 line.

Additional specifications of the chainsaw include:

  • 16-inch Oregon bar and chain;
  • Speed of 6,600 RPM;
  • 33-inch length;
  • .043-inch chain gauge;
  • Low-profile 3/8-inch chain pitch;
  • Automatic oiler;
  • Dual stud for improved bar and chain retention;
  • Variable speed trigger;
  • Weight of 13.9 pounds with the battery; and
  • Three-year warranty.
