When it comes to mixing small batches of drywall mud, mortar or even concrete there has always been a struggle to find the right tool for the right price. Yes you can get a dedicated corded mud mixer price range from $230 to $975 but many people simply use a hammer drill with chuck and burn the motor up pretty quickly. Until now there has not been a cordless solution but Milwaukee will very shortly have a cordless solution with the M18 FUEL mud mixer 2810-20 ($199, bare) & 2810-22 ($349, kit)!
This unit is specific for the application with a massive gearbox and low RPM range needed for proper mixing. The handles adjust to various positions to maximum user comfort. We expect to see these units out in September but could hit back orders pretty quickly if they are as popular as we think they could be.

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to lead the shift from corded to cordless and enhances productivity for professionals once again with the introduction of the M18 FUEL™ Mud Mixer with 180° Handle. By harnessing their industry-leading M18 FUEL™ technology*, Milwaukee has developed the first dedicated cordless mud mixer designed with the performance, adaptability, and control needed by the trades. Powerful enough to mix heavy compounds, from stucco to concrete, the M18 FUEL™ Mud Mixer can mix up to 15 buckets of drywall mud on a single battery.**
“When you take a look at the variety of mud mixing solutions available to drywall contractors, stucco, concrete, and tile masons, not only are many hindered by cords but not a single one is a dedicated solution for the trades. With this in mind, we set out to do what others haven’t and engineered a mud mixing solution from the ground-up that’s a dedicated solution for these professionals,” said Mayela Schoonover, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “From speed control to better functionality, the M18 FUEL™ Mud Mixer with 180° Handle is the first mixer that’s been designed specifically to address the needs of the trades. Engineered to tackle heavy compounds, such as concrete, it has the performance to fully replace corded mixers. Finally, professionals have a mud mixer that adapts to the way they work – increasing their productivity and mobility like never before.”
By combining three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence- the new M18 FUEL™ Mud Mixer with 180° Handle delivers break-through power to mix heavy compounds from stucco to concrete while maintaining its speed and without bogging down under heavy load. Because the tool is not restrained by a cord it’s easily portable, so users can work anywhere they need to without worrying about staying closer to a power source.
For unmatched comfort and control, the tool features a 180° adjustable handle and 8 modes of speed. Users simply need to adjust the handle to their preferred choice of 16 different handle positions, and set to the ideal speed based on the compound mix. A variable speed dial allows users the option of assigning a speed setting and then locking it on to mix without needing to keep their finger on the trigger.
When equipped with an M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Battery Pack the tool provides industry-leading run-time with the ability to mix up to 20 buckets of stucco, 15 buckets of drywall mud, 12 buckets of mortar, or 10 buckets of epoxy on one charge.
Milwaukee’s POWERSTATE™ Brushless motor improves the motor life of the tool by up to 10X the competition. A combination of no wearable components and superior durability means users will have to service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership.
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™ Mud Mixer with 180° Handle is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool products.
* 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.
