New Milwaukee Utility Tools, Lighting & Hydraulics

Milwaukee Tool has really had a strong focus on developing new innovative tools for electrical trades, with some real focus dedicated towards utility and power distribution. Today Milwaukee announced several new expansions with a RedLithium USB Hot Stick LED Light, M18 Hydraulic Pump Power and M18 15 Ton Crimper. All 3 of these launches are aimed at a small group of users but are extremely important for the rest of us; well at least those of us that use electricity.

RedLithium USB Hot Stick LED Light 2119-22 ($199)

Milwaukee Hot Stick LED

“Linemen face some of the most demanding and hazardous conditions, and often a hot stick is all that separates them from energized power lines. Unfortunately, the most popular options for lighting the work area around hot sticks – ground base lights and headlamps – are limited at best because they’re not specifically designed for hot sticks and their light spreads are often obstructed by trees and poles. These users needed the ability to apply high output lighting directly to the application to eliminate shadows and allow them to efficiently finish their work,” said Jason Isaacs, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.

Dewalt goes Compact Brushless with Atomic Series

Dewalt Compact Atomic

We’ve seen big demand in recent years for higher performance tools that are much smaller. We’ve seen the 12V tools get more powerful and the 18v tools get much smaller. Dewalt is jumping into the 18V compact brushless tools with a new Drill Driver and impact driver with a hammer drill, circular saw, oscillating tool and recip saw to follow in several months.

So how does power compare to their larger professional drills; 340 UWO with atomic vs 460 UWO (DCD792) or 820 UWO (DCD996). The tool weight of only 2.4 lbs puts it in range of Makita’s Sub-Compact 18V black tools or Milwaukee M12 Fuel tools, while the UWO conversion to ft lbs is not very clear this is certainly the intended competition for the new Atomic lineup.
