Milwaukee Tool’s M18 Fuel magnetic drills hit shelves
By Renée Francoeur
August 11, 2015 – Milwaukee Tool has introduced the M18 Fuel 1-1/2-in. magnetic drill as well as the M18 Fuel 1-1/2-in. lineman magnetic drill. The company claims these new tools are “faster than their corded counterparts, deliver the strongest magnetic hold on 1/4-in. steel, and can drill up to forty 13/16-in. holes per charge”.
With a focus on vertical and overhead drilling environments, Milwaukee says it has improved the traditional ergonomic design of the tools to speed up the positioning and drilling process in these orientations.
In addition, they also feature a patented magnetic base and permanent magnets so that the magnetic base operates without electricity. Equipped with Auto-Stop lift-off detection, power to the motor is automatically cut if excess rotational motion is detected while drilling.
