Does the circular saw blade belong on the Left or Right side of the saw? Its a question that has plagued mankind since the beginning. Shockingly the answer has little to nothing to do with what hand people use most and much more to do with what region of the country you’re from. Milwaukee Tools has solved the problem now with options for nearly every M18 FUEL cordless circular saw configuration, with the addition of the much anticipated M18 FUEL Rear-Handle 7-1/4″ Circular Saw 2830-21HD ($449) which has the blade on the left and mimics the design, power & feel of popular worm-drive corded saws.

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.
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.

Well the Red team is at it again updating their FUEL brushless Hammer Drills for the 3rd time, they say 3rd time is the charm! The 2704-22 generation 2 was a huge leap forward on the power side GEN 1 was 750 in-lbs to 1,200 in-lbs for GEN 2. When we look at the power change GEN 2 to GEN 3 2804-22 specs are pretty flat, with the same 1,200 in-lbs stated. That being said we weren’t really looking for more power here, already one of the most powerful in the market the 2804-22 really focuses on some other areas for improvement, going more compact and some other improvements.

We took an INSIDE LOOK at Milwaukee’s GEN3 1/4” Hex Impact Driver 2804-22. This latest addition to the M18 Fuel lineup is only 4 and a half inches in length and boasts 2,000 inch pounds of torque (which is a 200-inch-pound increase-in-power over the previous GEN2 model from 2017). So here’s a look at Gen 2 vs Gen 3 and see what has improved in a year, in terms of Milwaukee’s engineering, design, and performance. (more…)

We saw these new Milwaukee Cordless Drain Cleaning solutions at this year’s New Product Symposium (#NPS17) we did leave there with a few questions and recently we had the opportunity to have Morgan in the shop and address some actual usability questions, pricing questions and try to get a glimpse into how deep Milwaukee plans to go into the Drain Cleaning. Below is our chat with Morgan and below that some additional info now available from Milwaukee, including their official product videos.

When it comes to mixing small batches of drywall mud, mortar or even concrete there has always been a struggle to find the right tool for the right price. Yes you can get a dedicated corded mud mixer price range from $230 to $975 but many people simply use a hammer drill with chuck and burn the motor up pretty quickly. Until now there has not been a cordless solution but Milwaukee will very shortly have a cordless solution with the M18 FUEL mud mixer 2810-20 ($199, bare) & 2810-22 ($349, kit)!
This unit is specific for the application with a massive gearbox and low RPM range needed for proper mixing. The handles adjust to various positions to maximum user comfort. We expect to see these units out in September but could hit back orders pretty quickly if they are as popular as we think they could be. Check out all the Milwaukee M18 Cordless Tools at Ohio Power Tool and give the guys there a call 800-242-4424 if you have any questions on any Milwaukee Tools. For more on the 2810-22 Mud Mixer units check out the full Milwaukee press release below.

At the recent Milwaukee Tool #NPS17 Event we got a first look at this new M18 Compact 7-1/4″ Miter Saw 2733-21 ($499, September). It shares a lot of the look and feel with the larger M18 FUEL 10″ Miter Saw 2734-21HD ($599) however focuses on a more compact lightweight design getting down to 28 lbs for maximum portability. In our mind the benefit of a cordless miter saw is portability, cordless doesn’t make any sense for a shop saw but perfect for going on and off the jobsite. Both of these saws work very well with the new Milwaukee Folding Miter Stand 48-08-0551 ($199) which actually weights a little more than the compact saw!
