Milwaukee introduces long awaited track saw

MARKHAM, ON – Milwaukee Tool is excited to announce the long-awaited M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw. Driven to provide a woodcutting solution that delivers supreme accuracy and cleaner cuts on the site, this track saw exemplifies Milwaukee’s relentless dedication to providing solutions that are focused on enhancing productivity. The new M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw provides a cordless, portable solution that leaves finish-quality cuts through the hardest of wood, with over 90% dust collection.

“We are very excited to finally introduce the much-anticipated M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw.” said Tyson Apfelbeck, Vice President of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “This is a tool that has grown in popularity over the years and has become a must-have for the professional carpenter. Track Saws are remarkably accurate and clean with their cuts; a tool that users have been needing on the jobsite and in the shop. We developed the new M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw to provide users with a solution that has the corded performance, with the convenience and portability of cordless.”

The M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw is designed with the power to rip solid hardwood, cutting ¼” plywood to 2” thick oak or walnut without bogging down.  With over 90% dust collection, users will have cleaner and safer work environments, allowing them to work inside a finished home or their workshop. The M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw offers users portable precision while delivering on the performance expectations of even, finish-quality cuts.

Milwaukee also introduces their new line of 6-½” Track Saw Blades for increased accuracy and finish quality cuts. Compatible with the M18 FUEL™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw, these blades will be available for general-purpose, finish, fine finish, fiber cement, and laminate. The anti-friction coating resists corrosion and gumming, and the laser cut technology reduces wobbling and warping. The 6-½” Track Saw blades are outfitted with cobalt-infused tungsten carbide, which has been engineered to extend the blade’s life and maintain tip sharpness. In addition to the new blades, Milwaukee has engineered specific accessories for the track saw which will include 31”, 55”, and 108” guide rails, guide rail clamps and connectors, a guide rail bag, and replacement non-slip strips.

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™ 6 ½” Plunge Track Saw is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
