Finding the best Milwaukee Tools 2019 is not a small task when you see the number of tools that Milwaukee releases each year. They continue to deliver innovative products year after year. Even using a full day to soak in all the tools at Milwaukee NPS19, we still stop short on time. Another day would be great for getting additional footage.
We did our best to bring you the best. Milwaukee continues to expand their mechanics line of tools, and this makes us happy. There are still a few holes to fill before they complete the mechanics’ needs, but that hole is shrinking, bigly.
Best Milwaukee Tools 2019
M12 FUEL Extended Reach Ratchets
Release date is October 1, 2019. Same power numbers at the standard reach ratchets: 40, 55, 60 (1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″). These will be a great addition to any mechanic’s tools box. Easily one of our tops picks for the best Milwaukee Tools 2019.
M12 Right Angle Die Grinder
Release date: October 2019. This may be our favorite tool at Milwaukee NPS19. We can see this replacing many air-powered die grinder. The ability to quickly adjust the speed settings by pushing the button is a huge plus. Power seems to be more than ample from the 12V battery platform. We look forward to receiving this one for review.
40-inch Work Cart
We first saw this one at The Home Depot Prospective event earlier this year. Release date is August 1, 2019. Another great addition to the Milwaukee tool storage line, and adding more flexibility for the mechanics.
Milwaukee M18 Packout Radio and Charger
You’ll have to wait until November 2019 for this bad boy. Everyone at Milwaukee NPS19 was soaking up the tunes from this new Packout addition. Base and mids are deep and the sound travels very well, even in open spaces. Hopefully, we’ll be one of the first to try it out and let you know the details.
Milwaukee M12 FUEL Ratcheting Torque Wrench with One Key
This new torque wrench was built for the electrician, torquing electrical lugs in tight cabinets. But, like Milwaukee marketing geniuses they are, they’re crossing it over to the mechanic as well. The M12 Ratcheting Torque Wrench doesn’t do angle…yet. We fully expect to see this in version 2 very soon. Max torque for the 1/2″ version is 150 ft-lbs, and 100 ft-lbs for the 3/8″. Release date: November 2019.
M18 FUEL Extended Anvil 1/2″ Impact Wrench with One Key
Made for the time tire shops in mind, the new extended anvil makes it easy to reach lugnuts hiding deeper in the wheels. Max torque output is 1,100 ft-lbs, which is down from 1,400, from their standard M18 impact wrench. Look for these to hit the shelves in November 2019.
Best Milwaukee Tools 2019 Wrap-Up
As normal, we were very impressed with the number of new tools the Milwaukee continues to bring to the table, year after year. We love seeing the innovation, and we’re even more excited to see the mechanics side of the market being fulfilled. We look forward to the release dates for each of these tools, and we hope to bring many reviews in the coming months. Stay tuned.
