Milwaukee New M18 FUEL Tools 2024
Milwaukee New M18 FUEL Tools 2024 Released at World of Concrete
The ToolBoxBuzz Crew has been given early access to the new releases from Milwaukee for the World of Concrete 2024 expo. This article will feature the new Milwaukee M18 FUEL tools debuting this week in Las Vegas. Milwaukee continues to expand the M18 FUEL line with four new tools that cater to professional contractors and skilled tradesmen.
M18 FUEL Duplex Nailer and Nails
The new M18 FUEL Duplex Nailer is tailor-made for demanding professional users in the concrete trades. The M18 Duplex Nailer is as much as seven times more efficient than a traditional hammer and nails. More importantly, it reduces the potential for fatigue or injury to the user. The Duplex Nailer will drive up to four nails per second. Additionally, it has a tool-free jam clearance mechanism and depth adjustment.
The M18 FUEL Duplex Nailer is supported by Milwaukee’s new line of duplex nails. These nails are available in two sizes; 8D, 2 1/4″ driveable length, and 16D, 3″ driveable length. The individual nail strips feature increased spacing between nail heads for easier prying. Both of these products will be available in Q3 2024.
M18 FUEL 6 1/2″ Circular Saw
Milwaukee has updated its circular saw lineup with the new M18 FUEL 6 1/2″ model. The newest version of this saw features a “new to world” depth detent system and positive bevel detents. These two upgrades are a great improvement over the previous generation of the saw which was featured in our Best Cordless 6-1/2″ Circular Saw Head-to-Head.
Additionally, the new saw features 20% more power and 40% faster cut speeds, thanks to Milwaukee’s POWERSTATE brushless motor. When paired with a M18 High Output 6.0 Ah battery the saw is capable of up to 300 cuts per charge. An electric brake, LED work light, rafter hook, belt hook, and magnesium shoe plate are all standard features. The new 6 1/2″ circular saw will be available Q2 of 2024.
M18 FUEL Overhead Rotary Hammer With Integrated Dust Extraction
This tool is the first of its kind and provides enhanced ergonomics and dust collection for overhead drilling applications. Overhead work is often extremely fatiguing and difficult to do. Milwaukee’s new rotary hammer simplifies this task with new features and trusted technologies. A side handle provides better control and posture while working. By integrating the dust collection, Milwaukee reduced the overall weight of the tool and eliminated the need for additional accessories. The AUTOSTOP technology has been proven across the full line of Milwaukee drills. The Overhead Rotary Hammer also utilizes this technology to prevent bind-up and over-rotation. This new hammer is a purpose-built solution for small ceiling anchors and holes up to 5/8″ in diameter. Available May 2024.
M18 FUEL PACKOUT 9 Gallon Dual Battery Dust Extractor
Our final addition to the M18 line for World of Concrete combines some of the best technologies Milwaukee offers. A handy cordless, rolling, dust extractor that uses two M18 FUEL batteries and is PACKOUT compatible? Sign me up. The new 9-gallon extractor is compatible with the Milwaukee VACLINK for remote activation of the vacuum when paired with a compatible tool. Furthermore, the vacuum features a low airflow alarm system to alert the user when the vacuum is no longer achieving effective dust extraction. The described features and technology, combined with a mobile 9-gallon vacuum will provide an excellent solution for contractors on the move who don’t want to be attached to a traditional cord. Available Q4 2024.
