Milwaukee Redesigned M18 FUEL Drilling and Fastening Solutions

Achieve More Power/Speed in a Smaller Package 
 
MARKHAM, ON - Unwavering in their dedication to delivering productivity-enhancing solutions that provide the right blend of power, run-time, and performance, Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the next breakthrough in M18 FUEL* with the introduction of a new M18 FUEL Drill Driver, Hammer Drill, and Impact Driver. Through a ground-up redesign of the motor, mechanical, and electrical components of these core tools, Milwaukee has managed to create drilling and fastening solutions that achieve 60% more power, are up to 2X faster, and are the most compact-sized solutions on the market!  
 
 "When we introduced our original M18 FUEL drilling and driving solutions in 2012, we solidified our leadership in this category by engineering the perfect combination of cordless technology and mechanical design in tools designed for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. For our third generation of drills and impacts, we’ve heavily invested in pushing the boundaries even further," said Cole Conrad, Director of Product Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. "Due to the overwhelming research and investments we’ve made, we’re proud to introduce the next breakthrough in M18 FUEL drilling and fastening – borne from the intensive engineering of a smaller yet powerful motor, more efficient electronics, unmatched mechanical design that greatly reduces the size of both tools."  
 
True to all M18 FUEL solutions, the new M18 FUEL Drill Driver, Hammer Drill, and Impact Driver combine three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS intelligence. However, to deliver these ground-breaking drilling and fastening solutions, Milwaukee reengineered the motor and electronics packages to deliver seamless communication with the battery and the best performance catered to these tools and their applications.
 
Milwaukee created brand-new POWERSTATE brushless motors for these drilling and fastening solutions. These motors pack more overall power in the smallest footprint to date. Milwaukee also redesigned from the ground-up the REDLINK PLUS Intelligence featured in these tools, drastically reducing the size of these sophisticated electronics to save space and increase thermal capacity and communication between the tool, motor, and battery. Both drill and impact mechanisms have been optimized to deliver this incredible raw power in the smallest package possible. 
 
M18 FUEL 1/2" Drill/Driver & Hammer Drill 
The new M18 FUEL ½" Drill/Driver and M18 FUEL ½" Hammer Drill generate up to 60% more power than the leading drills and hammer drills available on the market today. Each delivers 1,200 in-lbs of torque and drills up to 2X faster in high speed, making them ideal for the most demanding applications and allowing for greater productivity on the jobsite. Even better, Milwaukee could accomplish all of this with tools that are 1.5" shorter than the leading competitors, giving users unparalleled access into tight spaces. For added durability and utility, both products also feature new industry-leading chucks with black oxide jaws and an updated sleeve knurl pattern for superior bit retention.
 
M18 FUEL 1/4" Hex Impact Driver 
The M18 FUEL 1/4" Hex Impact Driver is the fastest impact driver in the industry, delivering 0-3,600 RPM to drive screws up to 30% faster. This tool also puts out 2,000in-lbs of torque providing up to 25% more power to complete the most demanding screw applications. This means users will be able to not only get work done faster, but complete a wider range of fastening applications. All of this performance is packed into a new impact driver that measures 3/4" shorter in length than the previous generation. The tool is designed with a four-mode DRIVE CONTROL feature, providing users the versatility to switch between modes to match the power and speed for the wide range of user needs. A newly improved Self-Tapping Screw Mode shuts the tool off once a screw is seated to reduce overdriving, breaking, and stripping out screws.  
 In late 2018 Milwaukee will also introduce versions of the new M18 FUEL 1/2" Drill/Driver, 1/2" Hammer Drill, and 1/4" Hex Impact Driver with ONE-KEY compatibility.  
 
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 new M18 FUEL 1/2" Drill/Driver, 1/2" Hammer Drill, and 1/4" Hex Impact Driver are fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 150 power tool products, and are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.  
 
* 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 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.
