Milwaukee Tool

Milwaukee Tool kicked off the month of May with a New Product Symposium, an event for tool reviewers, media members, and influencers to see the tools perform and ask questions of brand experts. As the year unfolds, new product releases will be introduced. Let’s take a closer look at one of the new products: world’s first cordless SUPER SAWZALL® Recip Saw with M18 FUEL™.


With increases in overall power and run-time across the board, the new cordless saw cuts faster than its legendary corded predecessor.

“When it comes to heavy-duty cutting, there are few tools as iconic as the SUPER SAWZALL Recip Saw. Until now, no other portable recip saw, corded or cordless, has matched the speed and durability of our 15amp corded SUPER SAWZALL,” says Tyson Apfelbeck, senior product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Now, we’re pushing SUPER SAWZALL performance even further due to the vast advantages of M18 FUEL cordless technology. Through a ground-up redesign of our electronics, to the manufacture of a powerful new motor and a brand-new powerhouse—the M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Battery—we now have a cordless SUPER SAWZALL Recip Saw that not only meets the performance of the original—it blows it out of the water.”

True to all M18 FUEL solutions, the new M18 FUEL SUPER SAWZALL Recip Saw combines three exclusive innovations: the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence. However, to deliver the performance of the legendary corded SUPER SAWZALL Recip Saw on an 18V cordless platform, Milwaukee® reengineered these critical cordless components to deliver the best performance catered to this tool and its applications.

Milwaukee created a brand-new POWERSTATE Brushless Motor for this recip saw, which delivers constant sustained speed and power to rip through tough applications without bogging down. Milwaukee also redesigned from the ground-up the REDLINK PLUS Intelligence featured in this tool utilizing electronics never used before in power tools. This newly designed REDLINK PLUS Intelligence package ensures maximum performance of the tool under load and prevents against overload and overheat.


The M18 FUEL SUPER SAWZALL Recip Saw touts the same corded features that made its predecessors famous such as selectable orbital action, 1¼-inch stroke length, 3000 SPM, and a 5-speed setting dial.

When equipped with Milwaukee’s new M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0 Battery, the recip saw can power through up to 150 cuts in 2×12 on just one charge, eliminating the hassle of cords or constant switching out of multiple battery packs, while exceeding the performance of higher voltage solutions in the industry. The new HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0 Battery provides 50 percent more power, runs 50 percent cooler, and delivers 33 percent more run-time than the M18 REDLITHIUM HD9.0 Battery. In conjunction with REDLINK PLUS Intelligence and the POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, the HIGH OUTPUT Battery allows users to push the recip saw hard and work all day—delivering more work-per-charge than any other professional power tool system.


Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL Super SAWZALL Recip Saw is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 150 power tool products, and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users. The new M18 FUEL SUPER SAWZALL Recip Saw will be available in July.
