Milwaukee Fuels The Next Generation Of Cordless

Milwaukee has combined their exclusive POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence to deliver drills that will outperform all other 18V drills on the market, while being over 1” shorter and lighter


Milwaukee Tool introduces the new M18 FUEL ½” Drill/Driver (2603-20/22) and M18 FUEL ½” Hammer Drill/Driver (2604-20/22); tools that integrate three ground-breaking cordless technologies to deliver up to 10X longer life, 25% more power and 50% more run-time for the professional tradesman. Milwaukee has combined their exclusive POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS intelligence to deliver drills that will outperform all other 18V drills on the market, while being over 1” shorter and lighter. 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 up to 725 in-lbs of torque and making the M18 FUEL Drill Driver and Hammer Drill Driver the most powerful drills in their class.  The POWERSTATE motors also reduce noise and cools more rapidly, delivering years of maintenance-free performance. Milwaukee REDLITHIUM batteries provide significantly more run-time, power and recharges than any other Lithium product on the market. REDLITHIUM also delivers best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions.  With Milwaukee durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM battery operates cooler and performs in climates as low as 0°F/-18°C with fade free power. A battery fuel gauge also displays remaining charge for less down time on the job. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence hardware and software is the world’s most advanced system of cordless power tool electronics that will maximize performance and protect the user’s investment.  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.

“With advancements in the battery, electronics and motor, the new M18 FUEL products represent game-changing innovation for our entire lithium ecosystem that will provide unprecedented improvements in productivity for the user,” says Steven Richman, president of Milwaukee Tool. “M18 FUEL begins with the best components, and maximizes their performance using world-class engineering and job-site testing.”
