Milwaukee enters a new tool size class

Milwaukee is entering a new class size for tools with the introduction of the MX Fuel system of cordless light equipment.

The cordless system delivers the performance, run-time and durability demanded by the trades without emissions, noise, vibration and the frustrations of gas maintenance.

According to Milwaukee, each tool in the MX Fuel system goes beyond the limitations of gasoline and power cords and operate off one completely compatible battery system.

“More and more continues to be asked of trade professionals every single day. As these demands grow, they turn to manufacturers to help them stay safe and productive,” said Andrew Plowman, vice president of product management for Milwaukee Tool.

“At Milwaukee, we’re obsessed with proactively changing the lives of these users by developing the most effective solutions to the problems they face.”

Designed to take on the very same gas and AC equipment that the professional trades have depended on for years, this system eliminates the emissions, and reduces the overall noise, vibration and frustrations of gas maintenance, as well as eliminating the threat of tripping breakers, voltage drops and trip hazards.

Milwaukee’s MX Fuel tool lineup

The new MX Fuel equipment system will provide the technology and capability for Milwaukee to take a giant step into the light equipment space.

The tool lineup includes:

  • A 35 cm (14 inch) cutoff saw.
  • A breaker capable of tackling 2 tons per charge.
  • A handheld core drill that cores up to 15 cm holes in reinforced concrete.
  • The sewer drum machine with Powertrendz that can clear roots up to 61 metres.
  • The emissions-free 3,600/1,800 watt Carry-On Power Supply.
  • The 27,000-lumen, 3 metre portable light tower.

The MX Fuel equipment system is the result of years of research and investment in new technology, as well as the ground-up development of new batteries, motors and electronics – all simultaneously developed under one roof.

“After spending more than 10,000 hours with users on thousands of jobsites globally, we discovered considerable safety and productivity challenges within some product categories – like gas-powered and AC equipment – due to very limited innovation,” Plowman said. “From gas headaches to design features that were causing stress on users’ bodies over time, it was clear that today’s equipment wasn’t delivering on user needs. By dramatically reducing the hazards and frustrations of the light equipment that has dominated the marketplace for years, MX Fuel will fundamentally change jobsites everywhere.”

Like the M12 and M18 systems from Milwaukee, MX Fuel will feature three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations – the Powerstate Brushless Motor, Redlink Plus Intelligence, and the MX Fuel Redlithium Battery Pack – to deliver a platform of equipment solutions designed to exceed the demands of the professional trades.

Looking ahead, Milwaukee plans to continue to grow the MX Fuel system to offer alternatives to other gas-powered tools on-site.
