Summary

First of all, the Milwaukee 2682-20 M18 5-3/8-Inch Metal Saw is not for starters. You can still buy it if you want to, but it comes without battery and a charger, which are sold separately. It is an excellent choice for existing Milwaukee users, who require bare tool only and have 18V M18 spare batteries. It has a great rating and everyone who required a bare tool is very happy and rated it 5 stars.

Milwaukee released the 2682-20 in early 2011 and was a member of the 18V XC M18 line of cordless power tools. It was specifically designed to deliver the fastest cuts for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and general construction contractors.  The special thing about the Milwaukee 2682-20 M18 5-3/8-Inch Metal Saw is its 4-pole frameless motor, which is the best in its class.

It is equipped with many other features which leave a big impact on overall performance. When you are looking for a cordless metal saw, consider the best battery, charging time, runtime, power, and price. The Milwaukee 2682-20 is an excellent combination of power and battery run-time with an economy. Let us show you how.

Exclusive Features – Great Design

Weighing just 4.3 lbs, the Milwaukee M18 5-3/8-Inch Metal Saw is one of the lightest metal saws with a stainless-steel shoe. It exclusively comes with a 4-pole frameless motor. This motor, comparatively, delivers 35% more power to cut and 20% faster metal cutting. It can place 200+ cuts of ¾” EMT in one charge. Lithium-ion technology makes this possible with more slim and lightweight design. 2682 has been designed with simplicity in mind and is a user-friendly tool.

This saw is well balanced and over-molded with soft layers for maximum grip on both handles. The blade comes on the right side so it is best for left-handers. It is easy to carry around, offers comfortable handling, has a low-profile design, and features an ergonomic design that lets you do many things without hurting your wrists or stressing shoulders.

A Specialist Cutter for Professionals

The Milwaukee 2682-20 Metal Saw lets you adjust cutting depth with tool-free depth adjuster between 2” to 1/8”. The extra-large cut guide makes it easier to keep the blade on track. The impact resistant window and LED light provide more accuracy even in low light environments. Cut quality matters in delicate jobs and 30T METAL TECH Carbide-Tipped blade delivers burr-free cuts through many ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Unlike many other traditional guards, the polycarbonate blade guard stays intact and is durable. However, there are no angle adjustments, but the tool is not meant for these kinds of jobs so we won’t penalize the tool for that. The stainless shoe is stronger and sturdy and remains in shape to ensure accuracy of cuts over the years.

Verdict

First of all, the Milwaukee 2682-20 M18 5-3/8-Inch Metal Saw is not for starters. You can still buy it if you want to, but it comes without battery and a charger, which are sold separately. It is an excellent choice for existing Milwaukee users, who require bare tool only and have 18V M18 spare batteries. It has a great rating and everyone who required a bare tool is very happy and rated it 5 stars.

Those (one) who assumed that the battery is included without even reading the details, placed an order and ruined the whole rating, which was not necessary. Every Milwaukee tool is tested before being sent to the market or online and the manufacturer backs this tool for 5 years. This shows the confidence the company has in its tool.
