Milwaukee Tool has introduced the new M18 FUEL 1-1/2-in. Magnetic Drill & M18 FUEL 1-1/2-in. Lineman Magnetic Drill.
Part of the premium M18 FUEL line, these tools use the most advanced technologies available, are faster than their corded counterparts, deliver the strongest magnetic hold on ¼-in. steel, and can drill up to (40) 13/16-in. holes per charge, sources report.
Whether completely replacing the user’s current magnetic drill or supplementing their corded line-up, the new M18 FUEL Magnetic Drills can benefit any magnetic drill user. With a focus on vertical and overhead drilling environments, Milwaukee has improved the traditional ergonomic design of the tools to speed up the positioning and drilling process in these orientations.
The new drill products will feature a patented magnetic base that delivers safer drilling in ¼-in. steel by providing the strongest magnetic hold on this material. The new tools utilize permanent magnets so that the magnetic base operates without electricity; ensuring that the magnet does not deactivate if the battery is drained.
Equipped with Auto-Stop lift-off detection, power to the motor is automatically cut if excess rotational motion is detected while drilling.
