Metalworking tools encounter some of the most extreme abuse, due to the materials being worked and the environment in which they live. Many metalworking cordless power tools have lacked the power, runtime and durability to have widespread trust in the industry. Milwaukee is here to prove that their ¼” M18 FUEL Milwaukee cordless die grinder will not only perform well, but also thrive in this tough community.
“When faced with a situation that requires grinding in tight spaces or irregular surfaces, mechanical and metal fabrication professionals will most often turn to a die grinder to get the job done. However, the cordless options available in today’s market do not offer the performance or run-time required for prolonged use,” said Andrew Plowman, Vice President of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “Unwilling to settle on sub-par performance, we spent countless hours conducting jobsite research and advancing our technologies until we could introduce a solution that provides a true productivity enhancement with the M18 FUEL™ 1/4” Die Grinder.”
Milwaukee Cordless Die Grinder Features
As a part of the M18 FUEL line, the ¼” Milwaukee cordless die grinder can grind continuously for up to 20 minutes on a single charge, when equipped with an XC5.0 battery pack.. With the ability to remove up to 2X more weld than any other cordless grinder, this M18 FUEL die grinder lives in a class of its own. Powering through metal, the Milwaukee cordless die grinder is capable of removing material faster than a corded grinder. In addition, the Powerstate brushless motor provides up to 10X the life of competitors on the market.
Milwaukee included the same metal housing, as well as the same metal gearing system as found in their corded die grinders. This system has a proven track record for not only durability but also performance. With no wearable components and excellent durability, the cost of ownership goes down because the tools is serviced less.
