New M18 FUEL™ Drilling and Driving Products Set Industry Benchmark… AGAIN.

Milwaukee® continues to revolutionise cordless expectations with the introduction of new M18 FUEL™ Drill Drivers, Hammer Drills and Compact Impacts.  Three years after the launch of the industry-changing M18 FUEL™ Drilling & Driving products, the next generation tools reset expectations, delivering the most power on the market in a much more compact size.

 

“We are proud that our original M18 FUEL™ drilling & fastening products have become the industry benchmark over the past three years, and are excited to raise the bar once again for what an end user should expect out of their Cordless Drills and Compact Impacts.”

 

“The new M18 FUEL™ Drills are the most powerful 18v Drills on the market at 135 Nm of torque, while being shorter and lighter than leading competitive offerings. The new M18 FUEL™ Impacts are not only the most powerful compact impacts in their class, but also offer the next evolution of our proprietary DRIVE CONTROL™ feature for greater versatility in a wide variety of fastening applications.” Says Oliver Lerch Vice President of Powertools

 

As with all M18 FUEL™ products*, the new tools feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM-ION™ 5.0 Ah Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— to deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time. Each of these next generation solutions went through a ground-up redesign process, and will take each of these advanced components to the next level.

The new M18 FUEL™ Drills, Hammer Drills and Impacts will feature a new POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor with higher grade magnets, which produces higher output power and speed under heavy load. In addition, REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence has been upgraded with even better heat management capabilities to handle the higher power output of the motors. With more power, in a smaller size, the user will experience the benefits of a compact tool and the extreme power of M18 FUEL™ all in one tool.

The new Impact Driver and Impact Wrenches will also deliver faster driving speeds and more control than ever before. Now with a 4-Mode Drive Control™, that combines the best precision and performance (not specific for the self-tapping screw mode), the user will have maximum control, reducing the amount of time spent slipping off of screw heads or stripping/breaking them all together. The M18 FUEL™ Impact Wrenches will also include 4-Mode Drive Control™ that includes an auto shut-off function that stops the tool after it senses one second of impacting to prevent overdriving fasteners and damaging materials.

 

Available this fall, the new M18 FUEL™ drilling and driving solutions are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology.
