The M18™ Brushless Threaded Rod Cutter Kit is Milwaukee's dedicated solution for cutting the most common threaded rod sizes on the job site, including coarse 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" mild steel to 1/4" and 3/8" stainless steel. The cordless threaded rod cutter is powered by a brushless motor and delivers 400+ cuts while powered by an M18™ REDLITHIUM™ 2.0Ah Battery. The four-sided cutting dies allow you to cut multiple sizes of threaded rod on one tool by simply rotating the dies. The all thread cutter has the clearest line of sight and delivers clean, burr-free cuts enabling you to thread a nut on by hand without having to file down the ends. The rod cutter features optimized blade geometry and cut speed to prevent chips and sparks while cutting. It has auto jaw opening allowing you to perform fast, repetitive cuts while a reverse button helps prevent unintended cuts. Its centered grip provides the best balance for one-handed overhead trims, while the flat horizontal design provides you with a stable surface for benchtop cuts. The Milwaukee Threaded Rod Cutter kit includes one M18™ REDLITHIUM™ 2.0Ah Battery, a multi-voltage charger, and a carrying case.
