Milwaukee Tool delivers the next generation of high-performance drilling and driving solutions with the introduction of its new M18 FUEL Drill and Impact.
Leading as the most powerful solutions on the market, the M18 FUEL ½” Hammer Drill and M18 FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver deliver the fastest driving speeds and with enhanced safety.
“Our M18™ System has always been performance driven and trade focused. While developing our new drills and impacts, we took the same approach with a heightened focus on meeting the needs of the professional tradesperson,” said Jeff Morman, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.
“Relentless user research led us to find power, speed, and safety the top priorities for users.
Our advanced M18 FUEL motor technology delivers the ultimate combination of these features without trade-offs or the sacrifice of performance. Milwaukee’s new line-up of drills and impacts once again dominates in the high-performance drilling and driving class, providing users with the very best solutions on the market.”
True to all M18 FUEL solutions, the new M18 FUEL ½” Hammer Drill and M18 FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver combine three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS intelligence – to deliver unmatched power, speed, and control.
M18 FUEL™ ½” Hammer Drill/Driver
Available August 2022, the M18 FUEL ½” Hammer Drill/Driver is the most powerful drill in its class, featuring AUTOSTOP Control Mode to deliver enhanced safety at a most compact size. The hammer drill delivers 30% more power under load to complete holes in dense woods for greater productivity throughout the workday. With increased thermal motor capability, users are able to tackle more applications back-to-back with less bog down. The M18 FUEL ½” Hammer Drill/Driver is the shortest hammer drill in class at just 6.9” in length. The improved compact design allows for ultimate access without the sacrifice of power.
Milwaukee delivers disruptive innovation to the drilling and driving market by being the first manufacturer to utilize machine learning combined with advanced sensors to optimize the user experience and provide enhanced safety.
Utilizing data from users in the field and lab correlated data points, Milwaukee leveraged advanced machine learning to account for the numerous and challenging variables associated with drilling a hole with a ½” drill. The combination of real-life and machine data points led to the development of an industry-leading solution that shuts down the tool’s motor in order to prevent over-rotation. Furthermore, the advanced algorithm minimizes nuisances shut-downs that can hinder productivity, delivering the best reacting anti-kickback control on the market. This AUTOSTOP feature delivers a safer drilling experience, providing users with maximum control and reduce kickback during bind-up situations.
M18 FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver
Also Available August 2022, the new M18 FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver is the most powerful impact driver, reaching the fastest driving speeds while providing users with ultimate trigger control. This impact driver increases productivity with the ability to drive through a full range of applications with 30% more speed than other manufacturers. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor features greater thermal capability that allows users to complete more applications in a row without losing power or speed. The M18 FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver has an improved, compact design at only 4.47” in length to give users ultimate access with uncompromised durability and performance. As an added benefit, tri-led lighting reduces shadows and provides greater visibility for a brighter workspace.
Delivering industry leading performance, the M18 FUEL Impact Driver is designed with ultimate trigger control that provides end-to-end control, from precise to heavy-duty applications. This feature delivers smoother acceleration to prevent damage to fasteners and material, without the sacrifice of overall power, speed, or finesse while gaining control. The impact driver combines power and best-in-class control to maximize users’ versatility and increase daily productivity.
Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The M18 FUEL ½” Hammer Drill/Driver and M18 FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver are fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 250 power tool solutions.
