At Milwaukee’s NPS 2018 a few ago, we had the opportunity to take a look at the two new jigsaws that will join the M18 lineup later this year. Both run on the company’s new and improved RedLithium battery packs, feature brushless motors, and use RedLink electronics to maintain blade speed under load. Both models of the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Jigsaw aim to cut smoothly with less chipping or bucking.
The first model, due out in August, features a D-handle. It includes a tool-less bevel adjustment, variable speed trigger, and an LED work light. It will also include a cut line blower that users can toggle on and off.
The Milwaukee M18 Fuel Jigsaw with the barrel grip should become available later this year, in November 2018. It will feature ambidextrous on/off switches, as well as a soft-start mode that ramps up to full speed when it comes under load. This model also features the LED light and blower, as well as a variable speed dial adjustment.
When paired with an M18 RedLithium 5.0 Ah battery, expect the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Jigsaw to cut around 110 ft of 3/4″ OSB.
