Inside Look: Milwaukee M18 Fuel Cordless Super Sawzall 2722-20/22

This is the Milwaukee’s M18 Super Sawzall. It arrived in 2018 with more power, more weight, and a new 12AH battery. It claims to match the power of a 15amp corded version. It features variable speed control in both the trigger and a separate dial, as well as on/off orbital cutting, increased stroke length, and a new LED light & rafter hook.  (more…)

INSIDE LOOK: Milwaukee M18 3-in-1 Cordless Backpack Vacuum 0885-20

Milwaukee’s M18 3-in-1 Backpack Vacuum gives tradesmen a cordless vac that can be worn, hung, or carried around the jobsite. With only 76 decibels of noise, it’s also one of the quietest vacuums on the market. But don’t mistake the lack of noise for a lack of power. This vac boasts up to 2 times the suction power of competing models and is OSHA compliant for silica dust collection. Complete with a HEPA filter and heavy-duty attachments, this shop vac is ready for the toughest of job sites.

To test it out, we asked Eric from Mechanical Hub to spend some time with it on the job, before taking it apart with Kris, our tool technician at Ohio Power Tool. This is your Inside Look at the Milwaukee M18 3-in-1 Backpack Vacuum, model 0885-20.  (more…)

What’s Coming from Metabo World of Concrete 2019

Next week the Coptool Team will be at World of Concrete and will for sure be spending some time with our friends at Metabo. They send us a teaser in the press release below and looks like they’ve got some interesting new tools coming. Most interested in checking out the full line up of Brushless (corded) SDS-Max Rotary Hammers. We’ve heard some great things about them already and while everything is going cordless there is still a good reason to want your large rotary hammer to have a plug.

Their super popular vacuum ASR 35 ACP HEPA is getting upgraded from 130 CFM to 157 CFM which is good news but not as good as the fact that the current model is being blown out for $349 US American dollars down from $599!!! They’ll be gone fast at that price and really all you need for OSHA Table 1 compliance for 5″ grinding and cutting.  (more…)
