Milwaukee Tool introduces new lineup of light, cordless equipment

By On-Site Staff   



Milwaukee Tool is taking aim at a lack of innovation within the light job site equipment category with a new line of cordless equipment known as the MX FUEL Equipment System.

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

The new lineup of equipment aims to eliminate the emissions, noise and vibration hazards associated with gas and power cords while maintaining the performance, run-time and durability demanded by crews.

“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 added. “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 job sites everywhere.”

The MX FUEL REDLITHIUM Battery Pack underpins the cordless system, which launched with six products, including the 14” Cut-Off Saw, Handheld Core Drill, Breaker, CARRY-ON 3600W/1800W Power Supply, ROCKET Tower Light/Charger and Sewer Drum Machine w/ POWERTREDZ. All are branded under the MX FUEL banner.

The launch of the six new products is just the beginning, Milwaukee said. It plans to continue adding to the lineup as lithium-ion-powered solutions replace gas on job sites.
