Inside Look: Milwaukee M18 Threaded Rod Cutter 2872-21

Only a few weeks ago we announced the launch of the Milwaukee M18 Threaded Rod Cutter 2872-21 with this post and video. We had only a little time with it before posting this intro and while we love tools and use lots of them, we are not qualified to give real user feedback on a Threaded Rod Cutter like this. We took this tool over to our friends at Mid-City Electric in their Pre-Fab Shop where they cut literally thousands of feet of threaded rod and that we knew were running the Dewalt 20V Threaded Rod Cutter DCS350 already.

Milwaukee M18 Switch Tank Backpack Sprayers

Another huge launch from Milwaukee Tool this week, stepping into a new category with a ton of applications for concrete and landscape professionals. Shocking to us this and other huge launches are all coming out before the big #NPS19 event which leads us to ask, what is bigger than these are they saving to launch at the event? This M18 Switch Tank System really is going to be a game changer and has a ton of very smart features. Of course being on one of the most popular battery platforms is a huge advantage over anything out now but they did some very smart things here including building the tanks & hoses to be completely self-contained so there is no chance of mixing chemicals anywhere in the tank, pump, hose or wand.

M18 Switch Tank Water

Basically there is one M18 Switch Tank Base and 3 tank options (pesticide, concrete chemical, water supply) depending on which tank you want first you’re looking at $399-$439 for the kit which includes 1x 3.0Ah battery (enough charge for 12 tanks). From there additional tanks are $149-$164 so it’s very easy to keep everything totally separate. Many of the Kits will be launching early March, Pre-Sale up on Ohio Power Tool M18 Tools page starting February 1st if not sooner. (more…)

Milwaukee M18 FUEL 2” Pipe Threader 2874-22HD

M18 Pipe Threader

For as long as we can remember the Ridgid Power Pony 700 ($1400) has been the standard in mobile pipe threading for ½” – 2” pipe. Others have made similar versions but none have come anywhere near the Power Pony for popularity and performance. The one and only drawback that continuously comes up however, in 2019 a tool designed for portability needs to be you know, portable which means cordless. The team at Milwaukee hopes to capitalize on this short coming and fill the need with the M18 FUEL Pipe Threader w/ONE-KEY 2874-22HD. This unit will use the very common 12R die heads so will be compatible with all your current Ridgid 12R Threading Die Heads you likely already own in various sizes.

Milwaukee 12R Die Heads

Announced at the AHR Expo today but not going to be hitting the Market until summer 2019, Pre-Sale will be up early on Ohio Power Tool under Milwaukee M18 Tools, no pricing info yet but stay tuned for #NPS19 where there will likely be much more info, in the meantime check out the full Milwaukee press release below.

Milwaukee M18 Threaded Rod Cutter 2872-21

When it comes to commercial electricians and mechanical contractors working with threaded rod is a part of life, one thing is clear there is a lot of cutting that needs to be made. For an occasional user, no big deal bandsaw or even a grinder will get the job done, although might leave a burr and/or create unwanted sparks. For heavy users when dealing with large high rises or acres of data-centers a specialty tool is really a must have. The Milwaukee M18 Brushless Threaded Rod cutter 2872-21, launching in March 2019 for around $399 Kit, $329 Bare Tool 2872-20 could potentially pay for itself in a matter of days.

Saving a lot of time with quick, burr-free, nut ready, cuts this unit really is ideal for overhead use or lying down on any flat surface. Check out our video above as well as full Milwaukee Press Release below, more info to follow and Pre-Orders will be available on Ohio Power Tool under Milwaukee M18 Tools very soon. (more…)

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 M18 FUEL SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer Drills 2712-22 & 2715-22

m18 fuel sds-plus

While Milwaukee has always offered rotary hammer drills in SDS-Plus sizes they have not been serious players in the category. Bosch and Hilti have been the leaders with Dewalt and Makita taking their share of the pie as well. Up to this point 18V cordless SDS-Plus drills have been more of a lower powered niche product. Things look like they are about to shake up however as Milwaukee is working to prove their M18 FUEL cordless rotary drills can not only outperform any 18V or 36V but corded drills as well.

Milwaukee Bluetooth M18 Jobsite Radio & Battery Charger 2792-20

M18 Radio 2792-20

Well it seems like a pretty simple idea, a jobsite radio that would run off a power tool battery and actually charge if it were plugged in. Unfortunately some patents have kept several of the tool brands from realizing this dream, Milwaukee being one of them… until now. While the New M18 Radio 2792-20 ($229, Ohio Power Tool) can be preordered today, you’re not going to find it under any Christmas trees this year sadly, as it won’t ship until February 2014. Here is the first look at what will no doubtable be a very hot seller for the red team.
