Milwaukee® Launches M12™ FUEL Impacts

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to fuel innovation with the introduction of the new M12™ FUEL ¼” Hex Impact Driver (2453-20/22), M12™ FUEL ¼” Impact Wrench (2452-20/22) and M12™ FUEL 3/8” Impact Wrench (2454-20/22). Featuring the Milwaukee POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Electronic Intelligence, the new M12 FUEL™ Impacts deliver 18V performance in a compact, 12V size with longer motor life, more runtime, and a proprietary 2-Mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature.

 

The new POWERSTATE™ brushless motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power and torque more efficiently than leading competitors.  The POWERSTATE™ motor is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool, providing maximum torque and 2,650 RPM. The POWERSTATE™ motors also reduce noise and cools more rapidly, delivering years of maintenance-free performance.

 

REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence is a best-in-class system that integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger, and constantly monitors this internal network to maintain ideal conditions.  It also allows the user to choose between two fastening modes with the DRIVE CONTROL™ feature. Mode #1 is for precision work and Mode #2 delivers maximum performance for the toughest applications.

 

The new Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ 2.0 batteries provide up to 2X more run-time than standard Lithium-Ion batteries. REDLITHIUM™ 2.0 also delivers best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions.  With Milwaukee® durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM™ 2.0 battery operates cooler and performs in climates below 0°F/-18°C with fade free power.
