Milwaukee Tool has teased about their upcoming M18 Fuel cordless mower several months ago, and finally shared official launch details. Their first-ever cordless mower will be launching soon, in April 2022.
The new Milwaukee cordless mower, model 2823-22HD for the kit, is a 21″ self-propelled dual-battery mower. Milwaukee says that it “delivers best-in-class cut quality and more max torque than 200cc gas competitors, meeting the performance needs of the landscape maintenance professional.”
Milwaukee says that the new mower maintains blade speed in demanding applications without bogging down, and that it also offers instantaneous throttle response on both blade and drive motors for ultimate control.
The mower will be powered by (2) M18 batteries, and it draws power from them simultaneously.
The mower has a “true 21″ cut capacity” and “optimized steel deck design.” It also features 3-in-1 capabilities – bagging, mulching, and rear side discharge.
Milwaukee says that their mower reduces missed blades of grass and clumps compared to competitive mowers.
It has a single point height adjustment.
It self-propelled functionality has variable speed control up to 4 MPH.
The mower also features front and side lights for 180° visibility in lower light situations.
The mower folds up for vertical storage.
