This August Milwaukee Tool is launching a new 18V D-handle jig saw that harnesses M18 FUEL technology for a best-in-class combination of power, blade speed, precision, and run-time.

The M18 FUEL D-Handle Jig Saw’s PowerState Brushless Motor and RedLink Plus Intelligence combine to deliver higher sustained blade speed than 7amp corded for clean and controlled cuts with the power to cut hard materials. Also available will be an M18 FUEL Barrell Grip Jig Saw, coming November 2018.

When it comes to jig saw performance, quality of cut is critical. Increased blade speeds aid in minimizing chipping and bucking for cleaner cuts, decreasing the overall time and cost spent sanding and reworking material. The M18 FUEL™ D-Handle Jig Saw features Milwaukee’s industry-leading PowerState Brushless Motor which delivers sustained speed at 3,500 SPM to create clean and controlled cuts. The RedLink PLUS Intelligence electronics communicate seamlessly with the motor to constantly monitor speed and power to maintain this consistent blade speed in tough materials, from hard woods to metal, without stalling or bogging down.

With all this speed and power at hand, the jig saw features a variable speed trigger, giving users greater control through the cut – whether straight or curved. To further increase accuracy, Milwaukee designed the M18 FUEL D-Handle Jig Saw with a new internal mechanism and upgraded blade clamp and roller guide to maintain stability through cuts.

When equipped with the M18 RedLithium XC5.0 Battery Pack, the M18 FUEL D-Handle Jig Saw can cut through up to 105 linear feet of 3/4” laminated particle board, delivering a full day’s work with less trips to the charger.

Later this year, Milwaukee will also introduce an M18 FUEL Barrell Grip Jig Saw, which will deliver equal performance to the D-Handle Jig Saw. Engineered with the same key M18 FUEL™ components, the Barrell Grip also shares the same technology and upgrades as the D-Handle. Unique features will include ambidextrous on/off switches and a 6-speed dial with a specific auto-controlled start mode.
