By Alyssa Dalton
November 15, 2011 – Milwaukee has announced its M18 FUEL line of extreme-performance cordless power tools, which integrates the Powerstate brushless motor, RedLithium battery technology, and RedLink Plus Intelligence for enhanced durability, run-time and performance, it says. The new Powerstate brushless motor works harder and lives longer than all leading competitors, while reducing noise and cooling more rapidly to deliver years of maintenance-free performance, it describes, adding that the RedLithium batteries operate cooler and performs in climates as low as -18°C with fade free power. The Red Link Plus Intelligence system integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger, and monitors this internal network to maintain ideal conditions, it adds. It is slated to launch in Spring 2012.
