Milwaukee® Introduces New M12 Cordless 3/8" Impact Wrench

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands its LITHIUM-ION system with the new M12 Cordless 3/8" Impact Wrench. Offering a lighter more portable solution than 18V, the tool is designed for professional users that need smaller high torque tools to get into tight spaces. As consumers in this challenging economy increasingly choose to repair equipment instead of buying new, there is an increase of work in the maintenance industry and a higher demand for this type of tool.

"Shop-based users have less need for 18V run-time and are looking for a lighter more portable solution," says Paul Fry, Director of M12 for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "The 2451-22 is small enough to fit in your tool belt, and delivers up to 1,000 in-lbs of torque at only 2.3 lbs to fill this need."

With the introduction of the new 3/8" Impact Wrench and plans to grow the M12 cordless platform in 2009, Milwaukee® continues its growth as the industry leader in the sub-compact category. The M12 platform offers innovative solutions in power, speed, and portability.
