M18 FUEL 16" Chainsaw Kit (2727-21HD) : Preconceptions about the capabilities of battery-operated chainsaws often lead users to opt for the traditional gas-powered saws just to be safe. However, this cordless electric chainsaw by Milwaukee is completely altering contemporary perceptions about these tools. An 18-volt battery pack that could power a 16-inch Oregon bar and chain to cut hardwood faster than similar sized gas-powered competitors would seem laughable at one time; not anymore. To make this tool possible on an 18v platform, Milwaukee uses the REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0. The lower voltage but higher Ah allows this battery to deliver more runtime than the 36v and even 60v competitors. As to how this machine derives the power to outperform its gas-powered counterparts, you’ll be surprised to learn that it’s all thanks to Milwaukee’s well-known POWERSTATE Brushless Motor. This motor serves as the middle-man that turns the energy from the 18v battery pack into a chain that rotates at 6,600 RPM. Where brushless motors are a standard for optimal efficiency in cordless tools today, Milwaukee goes a step further. Integrating their REDLINK PLUS technology that provides communication between battery, motor, and tool, Milwaukee ensures maximum efficiency from your tool and protection from overload. Dual-stud chain tensioning provides superior chain retention, and a multi-tool for chain tensioning and changing is included with on-board storage. The automatic oilier always ensures proper lubrication for cutting to protect the service-life of your tool and improve efficiency. The oil reservoir is transparent, so you can always see how much oil has been depleted and when you need to add more. The large second handle and high-quality chain brake give this electric chainsaw a traditional feel that operates how you’re used to. In addition to the well-balanced design, the variable speed provides additional control.
