Milwaukee to Launch an 18V Random Orbit Sander with Corded Power & More Control

Milwaukee 2648-21 Random Orbit Sander

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to drive innovation within the carpentry/remodeling industry with the introduction of the new M18 Random Orbit Sander. Capable of reaching 12,000 OPM max, the new tool delivers true corded power, allowing users to remove more material per charge.*
“By leveraging our M18 technology, we’ve developed a solution that not only delivers true corded power without the hassle of cords, but does so without sacrificing the features users have come to appreciate from their corded sanders – such as the ability to adjust the sanding speed for maximum control and a smooth finish,” said Tyson Apfelbeck, Senior Product Manager. “In our continued dedication to providing true productivity enhancements for our users, as part of the M18 system, this tool also has the advantage of being completely compatible with the wide range of tools available on this platform that are frequently required by carpenters and remodelers.”
The M18 Random Orbit Sander’s power translates to more material removed in less time. The 7,000 – 12,000 electronic variable speed control provides the versatility to optimize speed for material removal and finish work.
The dust canister provides a durable dust containment solution, while the integrated filter allows for efficient dust filtration. For added utility, the M18 Random Orbit Sander comes equipped with a universal hose adapter to connect to the most commonly available vacuum hose sizes.
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. This new tool is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 150 power tool solutions.
Available April 2018, the new M18 Random Orbit Sander is a testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game-changing technology.
