Milwaukee Tool M12 FUEL 3″ Compact Cut Off Tool | Cut Through Metal, Tile, Drywall and Cement!

I’ve been patiently waiting since NPS18 to get my hands on this. I’m the guy that uses a Grinder to cut everything. I rarely use a Grinder for what it’s intended for, which is, well, grinding. This 3″ Cut Off Tool from Milwaukee is a perfect addition to my toolbox. It’s compact design and rubber gripped handle make for perfect one-hand operation.  (more…)

Cordless 9” Grinders: M18 FUEL 2785 vs Makita 18Vx2 XAG13

Cordless 9" Grinders

We’d had a few opportunities to run the Makita 9” cordless grinder 18Vx2 LXT XAG13PT1 ($419), both in metal cutting applications as well as in concrete cutting and concrete grinding applications. It has done fairly well for cordless grinder, very close to a large corded grinder. Milwaukee has now launched its own 9” cordless grinder in the 2785-21HD ($399) but with only 18V we look to see if it can keep up with Makita’s 36V grinder.

There is also a 3rd option for cordless 9” grinders worth mentioning in the Metabo WPB 36-18 LXT BL ($699, bare) which is a nice tool however at double the price, once batteries are factored, this puts is pretty far out of range when compared to the other two. (more…)

We asked AJ to put the saw to work on the job site so we could get some real world feedback.  (more…)

Milwaukee M12 FUEL Stubby Impact Wrenches

M12 Stubby Impact Wrench

The biggest thing to happen to Air Impact Wrenches over the past few years has been the stubby! We’ve seen the top air tool lines from IR, CP and other launch these compact tools with big success but nothing in a cordless versions, Until Now! Welcome the M12 FUEL Stubby Impact Wrenches in 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2″ versions. Super compact size at 5.1” with impressive torque at 250 ft-lbs, these are going to lead to even less air hoses on the shop floor.

Milwaukee Torch vs Diablo Carbide Blade – M18 Super Sawzall

While at the Milwaukee Tool NPS 2018, Milwaukee presented their new Milwaukee Torch Carbide Sawzall Blades and went head-to-head with the Freud Diablo Carbide Blade. Up until now the Diablos have been way out in front with carbide recip blade technology when it comes to cutting metal. Clearly, this Milwaukee demo provided by Milwaukee themselves, so it may certainly have some bias in the demonstration.  (more…)
