Milwaukee® Introduces a New M18 FUEL™ Blower – More Power, Less Weight
MILWAUKEE, WI- Building upon their strong introduction into the Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE) industry early this year, Milwaukee Tool is introducing a new M18 FUEL™ Blower to the lineup. The M18 FUEL™ Blower has the power to clear from 15 ft, reaches full throttle in under 1 second, is up to 4 lbs lighter than competitors, and is fully compatible with more than 150 solutions on the M18™ System. “At Milwaukee Tool we constantly listen to users about how we can improve their process and increase productivity. By leveraging our core technologies – batteries, motors, and electronics – we’re able to deliver on these user needs with products that truly enhance the way they work. This attention to continuous improvement and design advancement has allowed us to develop a blower with increased performance in a smaller, lightweight design,” said Andrew Lentz, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.
The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor and REDLITHIUM™ HIGH DEMAND™ 9.0 Battery deliver a 450 CFM and 120 MPH output. The increased power can clear leaves, jobsite debris, and clippings in a single pass, from a further distance, which increases user productivity. The Blower features 2 speed control (high and low) so the user can easily adjust between tasks. High is for the most demanding applications and low is optimized for clearing lawn debris from flower beds without pushing out the mulch. The unit gets over 15 minutes of run-time per battery when used at maximum power in high mode. The Blower also has a lock on button which allows users to set to full power so their hand can be relaxed during use. Weighing in at only 7.3 lbs with a 9.0 battery, the unit is up to 4 lbs lighter than competitive blowers on the market, which results in increased maneuverability and less fatigue. Lastly, the Blower is significantly quieter than gas handheld solutions, so it is an excellent option for situations that require minimal noise, such as maintenance in the early morning or near occupied buildings.
From landscaping professionals to trade professionals, Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new Blower is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool products.
Available in January 2018, the new M18 FUEL™ Blower is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game-changing technology.
* M18 FUEL™ is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
