REDLINK PLUS Intelligence / Efficiency

Milwaukee 2982-20 Review Efficiency

Milwaukee’s REDLINK PLUS Intelligence system provides remarkable performance that’s better, stronger, and more efficient than any corded circular saw I’ve come across.

In the M18, what it does is it delivers a balanced flow of power between the battery, charging function, and the tool which handles the blade capacity and speed. This does a lot of things for both the circular saw and its cutting performance and for you, its user.

Being able to power through efficiently and make several cuts without the battery overloading or overheating is the goal. And the REDLINK Plus intelligence technology accomplishes that without reducing the battery’s power.

The increased efficacy of the Milwaukee 2982-20 M18 Fuel 8 inch can improve the battery life and boosts the overall quality of the tool itself. You can expect it to look good as brand new even after using it frequently. The overloading protection of the REDLINK Plus solves multiple issues at once, making it easier for professionals to carry out intense, heavy-duty applications.

Construction / Quick Assembly

Milwaukee 2982-20 Review Construction

Assembling the Milwaukee M18 8-inch is easy and quick. It’s compatible with 42T carbide and cermet teeth blades so you don’t need to wonder about its cutting capacity for woodworking or stainless steel.

The battery housing, lever, handle, and plate are sturdy and durable. There’s no exception in how rugged and straightforward the design of the M18 is. It can withstand serious construction work and is very well-built.

Having said that, it does have a heavier built so one-handed operation is out of the question. But this just adds to its overall build quality. The tool is authentically made so it is compatible with heavy-duty and high-quality parts including the battery and blade.

It can make professional cuts and can withstand several passes easily. All this without too much pressure on the battery (thanks to the REDLINK Plus technology) and on the zipper (safer for you).

Motor / Faster Speeds

The M18 handles a high-quality and rugged 15 amp motor. So it’s a beast in terms of capability and size when you compare its build quality. For metal cutting, this is a great choice. It runs smoothly and faster than any corded circular saws I’ve come across within the same price range.

It works right out of the bag. It charges rapidly and has a convenient battery of great size for taking on intense work.

The cutting capacity is 2-9/16 inches which is a good measure for large applications. Combined with the REDLINK Plus technology, it’s smarter, faster, and more efficient at what it can do.

The cutting depth of the M18 is adjustable. This coupled with the faster cutting speeds and efficiency can make a huge difference in how you use the M18 cordless circular saw.

Ergonomics / Ease of Use

The Milwaukee M18 2982-20 does feature a chip collecting feature to maintain a mess-free and comfortable working environment. It collects metal chips and wood chips easily. Once you attach the chip container, it has a tight grip.

The indicator light prevents unnoticed overloading by letting you know the right time to stop. While the REDLINK Plus intelligence self-monitors for smooth and damage-free performance, the indicator light works great for some real-time monitoring in case you’re pushing the machine too hard.

There is also an electric brake stop with a 120 ft. cut-off per charge. Another safety feature that’s in place is to prevent overloading and overheating for heavy-duty applications.
