Milwaukee is truly doing some amazing things in the world of auto mechanic tools. Most of you have been around long enough to have been forced to work with pneumatic tools in your shops, and probably still are. Milwaukee Tool is ditching the cumbersome air hoses and replacing them with their innovative cordless M12 & M18 technology. And in strict Milwaukee fashion they have not overlooked even the smallest details with groundbreaking advancements. Check out what they’ve got going on in the automotive department from the NPS 2019 event.

We first found this tool at NPS 2018, and everyone was impressed with “the little cut-off tool that could.” And by that I mean, it could cut through all sorts of metal, tile, and construction materials, despite being on Milwaukee’s smaller 12V battery platform. Spinning at 20,000 RPMs, this flexible addition to the M12 family of tools is designed to be used with only one hand. It ships with a Carbide Abrasive blade, Diamond Tile blade, a metal cut off wheel, and a handy shoe guard complete with a dust collection port. (more…)

You’re working in the dark and some light would be greatly appreciated. Milwaukee recently introduced a new member to the lighting family, the M12 Rocket Dual Power Tower Light (2132-20). Is it worth skipping the new and approved M18 Rocket (2131-20)? Let’s shine some light on the differences of the two models to determine our decision. (more…)

This month Dewalt released their new DCC020IB, and we want to know how it stacks up against some of the competition already on the market, namely the Milwaukee M12 Compact Inflator, as well as the Ryobi 18V inflator. We are going to take a look at the following characteristics:
- Inflation speed
- Overall value.

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!!!!

The Milwaukee M12 Cordless Ratchet replaces it’s previous brushed motor Ratchet. Providing more power and better run time, this brushless M12 feels all kind of right in our hands. The bare tool at only $149 or the 2557-21 with 1 battery kit at $199 has 55lbs of max torque and 200RPM to keep cranking out the work. (more…)

Milwaukee released a new generation M12 Hammer Drill and Impact Driver a couple months back. We’ve played with them a bit and man they were impressive. All the same power as it’s previous model, now in a smaller package. Cutting off over an inch of length and dropping a few ounces, these new tools are feeling great.

It’s that time of the year when Milwaukee’s New Product Symposium #NPS18 is coming up which means new products nearly every week! This one is very exciting, Milwaukee is expanding their M12 series with a new cordless Rivet Tool. It’s designed for professional trades to simplify the riveting process. Thanks to the M12 technology, the new tool rivets up to 2x faster than hand tools and can pop up to 3/16″ stainless steel rivets. (more…)
