New M18™ FUEL Magnetic Drills Drive Safety & Productivity

Milwaukee® continues to deliver unprecedented innovation with the introduction of the new M18 FMDP M18 FUEL™ magnetic drilling press with permanent magnet. 

 

PART OF THE PREMIUM M18 FUEL™ LINE*, UTILIsING THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE, THESE NEW TOOLS ARE FASTER THAN THEIR CORDED COUNTERPARTS, DELIVER THE STRONGEST MAGNETIC HOLD ON ¼” STEEL, AND CAN DRILL UP TO (40) 18MM HOLES PER CHARGE.

 

By utilising Milwaukee’s M18 FUEL™ technology, Milwaukee has been able to address power issues and deliver the performance and run-time that is expected by most corded magnetic drill users, while eliminating the cord and maximising productivity.

 

Whether completely replacing the user’s current magnetic drill or supplementing their corded line-up, the new M18 FUEL™ Magnetic Drills can benefit any magnetic drill user. With a focus on vertical and overhead drilling environments, Milwaukee has improved the traditional ergonomic design of the tools to speed up the positioning and drilling process in these orientations.

In addition, the new products will feature a patented magnetic base that delivers safer drilling in ¼” steel by providing the strongest magnetic hold on this material. The new tools utilize permanent magnets so that the magnetic base operates without electricity; ensuring that the magnet does not deactivate if the battery is drained.  Equipped with Auto-Stop lift-off detection, power to the motor is automatically cut if excess rotational motion is detected while drilling.

 

On top of game-changing drilling and magnet technology, the M18 FUEL™ Magnetic Drills provide industry leading tool set-up and bit change speed.

 

Both drills are equipped with a 19mm Weldon quick-change chuck, making accessory changes fast and easy.  They also come packaged with a 19mm Weldon to 13mm Chuck adapter, and the ability to adjust the height of the motor head, tool-free.  This provides users the ability to switch from annular cutters to twist bits, faster and easier.

 

Also equipped with a 2-Speed gearbox, the drills are optimised for annular cutters up to 38mm and twist drill bits up to 13mm, providing maximum versatility and improved performance.

 

The new M18 FUEL™ magnetic drilling press with permanent magnet is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology.

 

* M18 FUEL™ is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM-ION™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
