Milwaukee Packout Radio & Storage Expansion NPS19

When Milwaukee announced they were launching a storage system a few years ago most people, even Red Fans were somewhat skeptical. Once launched however PACKOUT has been nothing short of a runaway freight train in terms of popularity, the biggest issue is they just can’t get the products made fast enough or expand the line quickly enough to satisfy it growing fan base! There are a lot of dedicated micro-sites popping up, Packout design hacks and lots of 3D Print files shared on Thingiverse if you’ve got access to a 3D printer. No surprise the Packout rotation was a big hit at this year’s New Product Symposium NPS19 although of course not as many new products in Packout as everyone was hoping for. Pre-Sale for NPS19 tools & accessories are up at Ohio Power Tool with more being added as they come in. (more…)

Can Milwaukee M12/M18 Radio Take On BOSE

2891-20 M18 Radio

As Bluetooth speakers from BOSE, BEATS and many other have become much more powerful while actually shrinking in size we have wondered why so many of the jobsite radios have remained the size of 80’s Boomboxes. The new Milwaukee radio speaker, Pre-order Now 2891-20 ($149). looks to change the game with style, size and clarity that will make it competitive not only among jobsite radios but for anyone looking for high quality Bluetooth speakers.

Milwaukee m12 m18 bluetooth


Powered by either the Milwaukee M12 or M18 systems batteries, IP54 can handle jobsite or beach, 40W of power to 6 speakers for 119 decibels (Bose at 116 & Beats at 99), Total Harmonic Distortion of .28% (Bose at .31% & Beats at .50%), AC power option, 2.1 Amp USB output and compact design of only 14” which is still tough enough to get knocked around. Retail price will be around $150. Unfortunately this new radio is not going to be under any Christmas Trees this holiday as it doesn’t launch until January. For more info check out the official Milwaukee Press Release info below.
