RECENT POWER TOOL INNOVATIONS
MILWAUKEE TOOL 2785-21HD M18 FUEL 7”/9” LARGE ANGLE GRINDER
Description: This is the first 18V large angle grinder in the world that features a 9” grinding capacity. It is lighter than the current industry-leading corded large angle grinder. It is a combination of three innovations: Redlink Plus intelligence, Redlithium battery park, and Powerstate brushless motor.
Why it matters: This tool reduces the amount of time used by customers to complete tasks. It also eliminates the need for cords and the constant switching-out of battery packs. Additionally, the innovation exceeds the performance of other higher voltage solutions in the industry.
METABO 8.0AH AND 4.0AH LITHIUM HIGH DENSITY (LIHD) BATTERIES
Description: This tool is the first to feature batteries that offer 8.0Ah runtime in a standard pack format and 4.0Ah in a compact format. These have the capability of delivering 1,600W constantly without overheating. Although the tools have no cords, the batteries have sufficient power for all applications from angle grinders to compact impact wrenches.
Why it matters: The batteries used in this tool have set standards in terms of capacity and performance. Additionally, the innovation can be used in more powerful cordless devices, which provides long-lasting runtime.
MILWAUKEE TOOL 2810-22 M18 FUEL MUD MIXER WITH 180° HANDLE
Description: This mixer is the first that has been specifically designed to address the needs of trade and tackle heavy compounds like concrete. It is the replacement for mixers that are corded. It combines several technologies such as Redlink plus intelligence, Redlithium-ion battery pack, and Powerstate brushless motors.
Why it matters: The tool is important to professionals in the sector who will always use mud mixers that adapt to their work while ensuring increased mobility and productivity. The innovation also breaks through heavy compounds like concrete faster at great speeds. Additionally, it is portable and can be used anywhere without depending on a nearby power source.
MILWAUKEE TOOL 2557-22 M12 FUEL 3/8” RATCHET
Description: This was the first cordless replacement for pneumatic solutions in the industry. It has up to 60 ft-lbs of torque, the first brushless motor in a ratchet and the most compact head design.
Why it matters: The various technologies used results in greater durability for professional users. Additionally, it will lead in a shift from pneumatic to cordless devices.
MILWAUKEE TOOL M12 FUEL STUBBY IMPACT WRENCHES
Description: This is the first cordless stubby impacts. It allows access to tight spaces and delivers 250 ft-lbs of maximum torque. It also features a three-mode drive control that gives users the ability to switch between them easily.
Why it matters: Although it is small, it allows access to tight spaces while offering power than exceeds larger 18V impact wrenches. As such, while it does not feature any cords and hoses, it gives users 50% longer anvil life, unlike other similar products in the market.
