I’ve been using M12 tools for a few years now and love them, the whole idea of the sub-compact line excites me. There are many contractors and so many applications that just do not need the weight, size or power or a larger tool.
Please don’t think that the M12 tools lack power, they don’t. In fact these “puppy like” tools have a bite that is far worse than their bark. Pound for pound their extremely powerful and the longevity of the battery is truly impressive.
The Milwaukee M12 FUEL line is everything I want to be in life; strong, efficient, a good communnicator with lasting power ;)
The Secret Trilogy:
The new Milwaukee M12 FUEL line features a “Powerstate” brushless motor, “RedLink Plus” electronics and “Red Lithium” 2.0 batteries.
POWERSTATE™ brushless means a more efficient motor, longer run time, less noise and the ability to cool more rapidly.
REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence is electronics that allow communication between the tool, battery and charger, and constantly monitors this internal network to maintain ideal conditions, including stopping the motor to prevent damage.
REDLITHIUM™ 2.0 batteries provide up to 2X more run-time, 20% more power and 2X more recharges than standard Lithium-Ion batteries. REDLITHIUM™ 2.0 battery operate cooler and performs in climates below 0°F/-18°C with fade free power.
The Milwaukee M12 FUEL will include six unique drilling and fastening tools, they are:
