Milwaukee Pushes Cordless Battery Performance with M18 FUEL™
Earlier this summer in Milwaukee I got a sneak peak at a new generation of 18V cordless tools that will continue to drive the cordless tool industry. These new tools boast some impressive stats and we can’t wait to get our hands on them to find out the real deal. In the meantime check out the press release that came out today describing this next generation platform.
Milwaukee® FUELs the Next Generation of Cordless
MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to revolutionize cordless power tools with the introduction of M18 FUEL™ – an exclusive line of extreme-performance cordless power tools designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee® to deliver unmatched productivity. As the clear leader in cordless tool development, Milwaukee has integrated three ground-breaking technologies: the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery technology, and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence, to provide a new class in durability, run-time and performance for the professional tradesman.
“With advancements in the battery, electronics and motor, the new M18 FUEL™ products represent game-changing innovation for our entire lithium ecosystem that will provide unprecedented improvements in productivity for the user,” says Steven Richman, president of Milwaukee Tool. “M18 FUEL™ begins with the best components, and maximizes their performance using world-class engineering and job-site testing.”
The new POWERSTATE™ brushless motor works harder and lives longer than all leading competitors, while reducing noise and cooling more rapidly to deliver years of maintenance-free performance. Milwaukee POWERSTATE™ brushless motors convert energy into power and torque more efficiently resulting in superior application performance.
Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ batteries provide significantly more run-time, power and recharges than any other Lithium product on the market. REDLITHIUM™ also delivers best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions. With Milwaukee® durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM™ battery operates cooler and performs in climates as low as 0°F/-18°C with fade free power.
REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence hardware and software is the world’s most advanced system of cordless power tool electronics that will maximize performance and protect the user’s investment. REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence is a best-in-class system that integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger, and constantly monitors this internal network to maintain ideal conditions.
Available in the Spring of 2012, Milwaukee will launch the M18 FUEL™ system with the introduction of a new line of drills that offer breakthrough performance in a smaller and lighter size than all of its leading competitors. More information on the new M18™ FUEL™ Drill/Driver and M18 FUEL™ Hammer Drill/Driver will be released in January 2012.
