Milwaukee® M18 FUEL™ ANGLER™ is the World’s FIRST Battery-Powered Fish Tape Solution!
MILWAUKEE, WI - Milwaukee Tool is proud to unveil the world’s first battery-powered fish tape – the M18 FUEL™ ANGLER™ Pulling Fish Tape. Through the AUTO-RUN™ Powered Feed and Retract, this groundbreaking new solution eliminates the need for manual pulling tools, allowing users to easily feed the tape with less fatigue, and automatically reels in the tape.
“When it comes to pulling new wire through walls and electrical conduit, electricians have long depended upon hand tool fish tapes as the first step in the installation process. Unfortunately, the longer the run the more difficult it is to maneuver current hand tool fish tapes due to inefficient binding and feeding,” said Troy Marks, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By harnessing the cordless technology behind our M18 FUEL™ System* we’re now able to deliver the world’s first battery-powered fish tape – providing physical relief, less mess, and more productivity to electricians everywhere.”
Powered by a POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, the M18 FUEL™ ANGLER™ Pulling Fish Tape blends the use of a hand tool with that of a puller to pull wire through a 200 ft run with 360° of bends – a first for the industry. The AUTO-RUN™ Powered Feed and Retract, with variable speed trigger, gives users the control to push wire through difficult runs without the repetitive reeling out motion of hand tool fish tapes. Milwaukee’s REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence ensures maximum performance and protection from overload.
To ensure users are prepared for all situations – no matter length or material – the new tool features a Powered Base that is powered by the M18™ REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and is compatible with 4 anti-binding steel and non-conductive drums that are easily interchangeable.
Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing electricians with performance-driven solutions that increase confidence throughout the entire electrical construction cycle. The new M18 FUEL™ ANGLER™ Pulling Fish Tape is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 200 power tool products, and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
