Milwaukee NPS18 What is Coming & What We Didn’t See

Milwaukee NPS18

We’re going to start this off with what we didn’t see at Milwaukee’s NPS18 event before jumping into all the good stuff. Of course everyone has a ton of wants, needs and guess on what new products are getting launched at these events but they can only do so much. Steve Richman, Milwaukee’s President got up and said the answer is YES we are going to make that; for pretty much any (logical) tool you are asking about just a matter of time. So For this year’s event no M18 tracksaw, no M18 trim routers, no cordless M18 framing nailer, no new M18 drain cleaning/plumbing, no M18 lawn mower and no revival of the Titan Workcarts. But we did see a ton of exciting stuff and PRE-SALE M18 Tools are already up!!!!

Milwaukee Tool New Product Symposium NPS17

Milwaukee tool NPS17

Well 2017 marked the 10th year of Milwaukee Tool New Product Symposiums and the anticipation was very high. With tool competitors launching technologies with higher voltages, new cells and multiple batteries the expectation was that the red team might have something big to announce but alas no big news on the battery tech. When pressed why they have not gone to 20700 cells for their batteries the general consensus was the cells don’t offer enough performance gain over the 18650. Perhaps holding out for the new 2170 cells but that means at least another year before we might see something.

Tools we didn’t see: M18 track saws, M18 chainsaws, M18 table saws, M18 battery bank power stations or M18 (6”, 7”) grinders. Perhaps these are waiting on the new battery tech to catch up or maybe duel batteriers but certainly something has got to be in the works on these fronts. That being said we did see a ton of very exciting tools and accessories targeting many different trades and users. (more…)

Makita Launches 18V Caulk Gun LXGC011, Competes Directly with Milwaukee M12 & M18

Makita vs Milwaukee Caulk

Milwaukee Tool seemed to have cornered the battery powered caulk gun for the past decade with their Nicd 14.4v tool 6562-21, which is actually still being requested. This original Milwaukee gun put out 620 lbs force and was the industry standard for a long time. Over the past 2 years Milwaukee has launched several M18 Caulk Guns as well as M12 Caulk Guns which have replaced the predecessor. Makita however is certainly not planning to leave the Red team untested in this arena and will be launching several of their own 18V Caulk Guns including the LXGC011 ($330) which are claiming the highest dispensing force at 1,100 lbs.
