Milwaukee has started the transition from their V28 battery system to the M28 Lithium Ion system. Users who switch their cordless power tools over to the new battery system will experience more advanced electronics, higher performance, greater run-time, and upgraded durability. M28 batteries are completely compatible with current V28 tools.
Well, it looks like most of our Milwaukee M12 predictions were wrong. We’re not at Milwaukee’s press event, but ProToolReviews is, and they’ve provided early details about some of Milwaukee’s hot new releases. Milwaukee is expanding their already huge selection of M12 12-volt lithium ion compact cordless tools with a palm nailer, hammer drill, universal multi-tool, and a few […]
Thinking about the many compact cordless tools out there, I just realized that Mikwaukee’s M12 screwdriver is getting a bit long in the tooth. It’s still a highly successful tool that earned itself a very solid reputation, but spec-wise its age is starting to show.
Remember when we told you that Milwaukee was introducing new hand tools and promised that more were on the way? Well, they’ve now added an 8-piece screwdriver set (48-22-2008) to the new product lineup. This set will include 2 ECX bits (#1 ), 2 Phillips bits (#1 & #2), 2 slotted drivers (1/4″ & 5/16″), […]
Steve from over at the ShopNGarage blog & forum recently reviewed Milwaukee’s M12 cordless drill and driver. The review was overwhelmingly positive, confirming our expectation that the M12 3/8″ drill is a very solid performer. As we also noticed in our own review of Milwaukee’s similarly featured 3/8″ right angle drill, Steve mentions that the drill’s chuck felt […]
Milwaukee just announced that they will be launching a new line of electrical hand tools in April. The new line includes an 11 in 1 multi-tip screwdriver, a Fastback utility knife, a side sliding utility knife, and a rasping jab saw. Milwaukee promises that “additional innovative tools” will follow later in the year.

While cordless handheld vacuums such as Makita’s new model and the ubiquitous dustbuster are suitable for light duty cleaning or small messes, there may be times when you may need something a bit more robust. For medium duty cleaning tasks, what you’ll want to whip out is a cordless wet/dry vac. Although a traditional corded vacuum would typically be better suited for most […]
Milwaukee is constantly expanding their M12 lithium-ion compact cordless tool lineup, and their new M12 3/8″ right angle drill is one of the most anticipated of the new offerings. While demand for the tool won’t compare to that of their pistol-grip driver, this right-angle driver will definitely find its way into many homes and jobsites. We […]
Milwaukee very recently released a new M12 product – the 2415-21 cordless right-angle drill/driver. The main selling points of this driver are its super-compact size, 3/8″ chuck, speed control, 11-setting electronic clutch, and runtime battery gauge. The only thing we read about Milwaukee’s right-angle drill/driver that we didn’t quite like is that the kit only comes with […]

They seem to have sold more than they have in stock since there is a message declaring that orders will “usually ship within 3-5 weeks.” If you need two or three grinders, you’re in luck – there’s currently a “buy two identical […]
