Knowing how many of you have been eagerly awaiting its arrival, I thought you might be interested in hearing that the new Milwaukee M18 Fuel cordless air compressor has started to ship (model 2840-20).
It features a 2 gallon air tank, 135 PSI max pressure, 1.2 CFM at 90 PSI airflow, 68 dBA noise level, oil-free pump, and weights 31.2 lbs without a battery.
If you haven’t already bought into Milwaukee’s M18 cordless power tool system, or only own compact batteries, you will likely want to pick up a modern high capacity battery pack as well, since the air compressor only ships as a bare tool.
Compared to Milwaukee’s new M18 Fuel cordless air compressor, the existing Dewalt FlexVolt model is lighter, despite having slightly greater air capacity, and less expensive at $299 for the kit.
Milwaukee’s cordless air compressor is quieter and is designed to be transported on top of a rolling stack of Packout tool boxes (but does not lock or latch to it).
We haven’t seen it in person yet, and are unable to answer any usage or performance questions at this time, but I hope to get my hands on one soon.
Raise your hands if you’re buying one at launch. Or are you planning to buy one later in the year?
