M12 FUEL Milwaukee Straight Grinder Features

Using the M12 FUEL platform, this new 2486 Straight Die Grinder gets a brushless motor for runtime and power.  The same 0.3 HP motor from the 90-degree powers this as well. However, this Milwaukee Straight Die Grinder only gets a 3-mode switch for controlling RPM. A variable speed trigger allows for further control of the RPM.

“When we introduced our M12 FUEL™ ¼” Right Angle Die Grinder, we disrupted the market and exceeded users’ expectations by delivering the industry’s first cordless right angle die grinder,” said Mark Kelly, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Now we’re expanding our offering in this new product category by introducing the M12 FUEL™ ¼” Straight Die Grinder equipped with 0.3 HP performance to outperform the most common 0.25 HP die grinders by 20%.”

Our Thoughts

We can’t wait to get our hands on this new Milwaukee Straight Die Grinder  While the 90-degree M12 gets a ton of use in our shop, there are still jobs that the straight is better suited for. Expect to see these hit the shelves in March of 2020.
