Milwaukee M18 FUEL HOLE HAWG Drills Faster than Corded

news_milwaukee_2707_2708
MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver disruptive innovation with the introduction of a cordless right angle drill that drills faster than the original corded HOLE HAWG®, delivers over (150) 7/8” Holes Per Charge, and is over 30% lighter than its corded predecessor. Optimized for Electrical applications, the M18 FUEL™ HOLE HAWG® is the first cordless tool of its kind, delivering game-changing productivity for professionals drilling with augers up to 1-1/4” and Self-Feed bits up to 2”.
 
“Professional trades have relied on right angle drills from Milwaukee® since before the introduction of the original HOLE HAWG® in 1970,” says Cole Conrad, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By combining proprietary FUEL™ technologies, we have been able to provide the performance, durability, and run-time the professional electrician demands without the need to plug into a generator or drag cords around a jobsite.”
 
As with all M18 FUEL™ products, the new HOLE HAWG® was engineered for the most demanding trades in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, M18 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— that deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time.
 
The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power more efficiently. This gives the M18 FUEL™ HOLE HAWG® the ability to deliver faster drilling speeds than corded units, especially under heavy loads.  The motor is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool to deliver years of maintenance-free performance with no wearable components, no losses due to vibration and less heat build-up.
 
REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence hardware and software is the most advanced electronic system on the market. This electronics package protects the motor and gear box from damage by shutting the tool down in stall situations that can occur when impacting a nail or drilling through dense materials.  It integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger to protect them from overloading, overheating, and over-discharging. These advanced electronics also help maintain ideal conditions for maximum application performance.
Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 batteries provide up to 2X more run-time and recharges than standard Lithium-Ion batteries, delivering over (150) 7/8” Holes Per Charge.  With Milwaukee® durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 battery operates cooler and performs in climates below 0°F/-18°C with fade free power. A battery fuel gauge also displays remaining charge for less down time on the job.
 
In addition, the 2708 model features a new-to-world QUIK-LOK™ Chuck to offer keyless, one-handed bit changes for most 7/16” flat or groove shank bits commonly found on augers, self-feed bits, and hole saws.
 
Available in October of 2014, the new M18 FUEL™ HOLE HAWG® is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology. While this product is optimized for Electrical applications, Milwaukee will also offer an innovative solution that is optimized for the large diameter hole drilling commonly performed by professional plumbers and mechanical trades in the near future.
