Since Milwaukee Tool opened its doors in 1924, the company has led the industry in both durability and performance by providing the best in professional, heavy-duty tools and accessories. With an unwavering commitment to the trades, Milwaukee continues to lead with a focus on providing innovative, trade-specific solutions—plus an added bonus on the safety spectrum.
Milwaukee Tool revolutionizes cordless power tools with the introduction of the world’s first cordless braking grinder solution. Stopping accessories in under 2 seconds and delivering up to 10X longer tool life, the M18 FUEL™ Braking Grinder is the only cordless braking grinder on the market with the power to grind.
Typical grinders spin accessories for up to 5 seconds once the power switch is released. This continuation of the revolution can lead to personal injury or damage to surrounding work areas when the accessory catches hold of the surface and skids or jumps. A grinder taking flight with a spinning metal disk can be a cause for concern.
“Jobsite safety personnel have become major stakeholders in the tool purchasing process, and tools that combine best-in-class performance with features they desire are at the top of their approved tool lists. Milwaukee is not only making their choice easy with this tool, we are taking things to the next level,” says Andrew Plowman, director for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “We are not only ensuring the wheel comes to a stop in under 2 seconds with a rapid stop braking feature and kickback-reducing clutch, but also eliminating a tripping hazard on the jobsite with the world’s first cordless braking grinder. While existing cordless braking grinders are effective as cut-off tools, this product is the ONLY cordless solution that can effectively grind, cut, and surface prep.”
The new cordless braking grinder also features the same metal housing and gearing system responsible for delivering the legendary performance and durability found in Milwaukee’s high performance corded grinders. To further maximize durability, a removable Job Site Armor™ screen is in place to prevent debris contamination overtime.
In addition, the M18 FUEL™ Grinder is a 100-percent tool-free product. Whether the user is adjusting the guard or replacing accessories, all changes can easily be made without a wrench, utilizing a FIXTEC nut. To increase comfort and reduce fatigue during extended use, an anti-vibration handle reduces vibration, while an extremely thin body design delivers optimized balance to rest easily in the users hands.
The new M18 FUEL™ Braking Grinder is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology. ■
