A day ahead of UFC 121, Milwaukee announced that they had stepped into the ring with Cain Velasque. The timing of the partnership was just right, as quite a few people saw his new Milwaukee-emblazoned shorts as Velasques absolutely destroyed Lesnar. The partnership will extend throughout 2011, with distributor appearances across the western and southwestern USA in the works. Fight […]
We talked a bit about Milwaukee’s new M12 cordless palm nailer last month, but its performance expectations have just been made available. Milwaukee claims that the palm nailer can drive a 16D 3-1/2” nail in under 2 seconds, and up to 100 nails per battery charge. That sounds pretty darn impressive – let’s hope that it can […]
Last fall we reviewed Milwaukee’s M12 cordless right angle drill, and found it to be a darn decent tool. It performed well, provided enough torque for RA applications, and had great ergonomics. It looks like a new M18 18-volt version is due to be released soon, so we compared the specs for the two tools.
The other day a buddy asked me to recommend a reasonably priced cordless drill kit. My personal choice would be to wait for a new Bosch combo to go on sale, but he wanted a kit for ~$200 right now. I ended up recommending Milwaukee’s M18 kit. This combo includes a fairly powerful drill and impact driver and two […]
The above-pictured Milwaukee drill/driver looks similar to their first generation 3/8″ drill/driver, but there is a huge difference between the two tools. This one is a hammer drill. That’s right, Milwaukee managed to cram the necessary hammer/vibratory mechanisms into their compact M12 cordless form factor!

Milwaukee has released their new M12 cordless palm nailer. This is the first tool of its kind, and one of Milwaukee’s first to include a new backwards-compatible RedLithium battery. The nailer is designed to take the place of traditional palm nailers, which require air compressors and hoses for power. I’m hoping that Milwaukee’s new cordless hammer […]
Milwaukee is introducing new wood cutting blades in standard profiles and with a new Ax blade design. The Ax is designed to offer the fastest speed of cut, greatest durability against nails, and the quickest plunge cut ever. Taking a closer look at the blade reveals some really clever engineering.
Milwaukee announced their new REDLITHIUM battery technology today, which is said to provide their cordless tools with unmatched run-time, performance and durability. The new REDLITHIUM batteries will be fully compatible with all M12 and M18 cordless products currently on the market.

Jay from CopTool was kind enough to share some photos of the new Milwaukee M12 Multi-Tool with us. Milwaukee’s version of this increasingly popular oscillating tool will come with a universal head which accepts other popular brands’ cutters, sanders and other accessories. It’s a good thing that Bosch is working to expand their accessory lineup! Following is the […]

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 […]
