Milwaukee M18 FUEL PACKOUT Vacuum Preview


Brings Jobsite Clean-Up Capabilities to the PACKOUT™ Modular Storage System

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool is proud to introduce the most powerful small capacity 18V wet/dry vacuum, fully compatible with the PACKOUT™ Modular Storage System. The M18 FUEL™ PACKOUT™ 2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum delivers up to 60% more suction than other 18V wet/dry vacuums, giving users the performance and power they need to quickly clean up a wide range of materials.

The M18 FUEL™* PACKOUT™ Vacuum features three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software. The POWERSTATE brushless motor delivers up to 60% more suction, giving users powerful performance to easily clean up common wet and dry jobsite debris so they can quickly get back to the job. When equipped with the M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ 8.0 Battery Pack, the vacuum can run up to 30 minutes in High Mode and over 50 minutes in Low Mode.

Through an intuitive and quick attachment mechanism, the M18 FUEL™ PACKOUT™ Vacuum is designed to be easily accessible when stacked on top of or within an existing PACKOUT™ Modular Storage System.** For ease of use, the vacuum can be used both on and off the PACKOUT™ stack, making it the most portable and versatile wet/dry clean-up solution available.

At only 87 dB(A), the M18 FUEL™ PACKOUT™ Vacuum is up to 2X quieter than traditional wet/dry vacuums, making it the ideal cleanup solution in occupied space where noise is a concern.

The vacuum comes with an included HEPA filter for optimal dust and microparticle collection. This HEPA filter is washable and compatible with all three Milwaukee® wet/dry vacuums – this new M18 FUEL™ PACKOUT™ 2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum, the M12 FUEL™ 1.6 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum, and the M18™ 2-Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum. A vacuum power tool adapter is included as well for efficient dust collection from other power tools.

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™ PACKOUT™ 2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
