Milwaukee M18 Compact Brushless Drill, Hammer Drill, and Impact Drivers
Milwaukee Compact Brushless tools have been out for a while, but the new drill, hammer drill, and impact drivers take the concept of “compact” very seriously. The drill drops 3/4 of an inch to measure just 5.7 inches long (5.8 inches for the hammer drill). The impact drivers are just 4.4 inches long and also much narrower with a 2.1-inch width. Look for these beginning in August 2023.

Milwaukee Side-Slide Utility Knives
The big deal with Milwaukee’s latest utility knives is that they shift the slide to the side. With top slide designs, you can accidentally extend or retract the blade, and the side positioning helps eliminate that. Plus, they’re easy on your wallet. The full-size 48-22-1515 is $9.97 (available September 2023) and the compact 48-22-1516 is $8.97 (available now).
Milwaukee M18 Forced Air Propane Heater
Milwaukee is upping its winter game well ahead of its arrival with the 0801-20. This forced air propane heater tops out at an impressive 70,000 BTUs of heat. Even better, it’s capable of running on either AC power or using an M18 battery. A 5.0Ah battery can run the unit for up to 8 hours. Look for it at retailers this month with a $229 bare tool price.
Nitrus Carbide is Milwaukee’s top blade line for Sawzall blades. Now, the technology comes to oscillating multi-tool blades with incredible results compared to other OMT blades currently available. There are two versions to look for. Extreme Materials blades are your go-to for everyday cutting when you’re not sure what’s behind the wood or drywall. Extreme Metal blades are your top choice for attacking metal head-on. Pricing is the same no matter which blade you want. Singles are $24.99, 3-packs run $49.99, and 5-packs cost $79.99.
Tired of pruning hedges and shrubs manually? Milwaukee now has a cordless crimper for you! It operated on the M12 battery platform and has a brushless motor, but it’s not a Fuel-designated model. Operating up to 75% faster and with 75% less muscle force than manual pruners, the 2534 can make up to 1000 cuts on a 2.0Ah battery. Grab it for $199 as a bare tool or $249 as a kit.
Milwaukee M18 Force Logic 11T Dieless Latched Linear Utility Crimper
Dieless crimping is wonderfully convenient and Milwaukee’s Force Logic lineup welcomed the M18 11-ton model 2876 recently. It touts a lightweight, incredibly balanced design to reduce fatigue for linemen. It’s operable with one hand, has a 340° rotating head, and a large trigger makes multiple grip options feasible in either hand, even while wearing Class 3 gloves. This One-Key-enabled crimper runs $5299.99 as a kit.
Milwaukee Made in the USA Cutting Pliers and Screwdrivers
Milwaukee updated a large range of cutting pliers and screwdrivers which are all Made in the USA. The pliers have a focus on easier cutting, smoother operation, and higher durability. The screwdrivers target an even more precise fastener fit than before. More than two dozen individual pliers and screwdrivers came under the microscope in total.
Milwaukee Gen 4 M18 Fuel Drill, Hammer Drill, and Impact Driver with One-Key
Following last year’s launch of the Gen 4 M18 Fuel drill, hammer drill, and impact driver, the One-Key models we anticipated are here. As usual, it takes Milwaukee’s top-performing drilling and driving tools to the next level with customizable controls, inventory management, tracking, and more. Look for the drill (2905) for $239 as a bare tool. The hammer drill (2906) runs $249 bare. The impact driver (2957) costs $199 bare. As we expect, there’s also a hammer drill/impact driver combo (3696-22) for $449.
Rounding out its chainsaw lineup, Milwaukee’s M18 Fuel top handle chainsaws are available with a 12 or 14-inch bar. Designed for professional arborists, these saws can cut faster than 35cc gas models, reach full speed in less than a second, and take advantage of their electronics to maintain chain speed under heavier loads. The 12-inch model runs $339 bare and the 14-inch model is $349. The 14-inch is also available in a 1-battery kit for $499 or a 2-battery kit for $699.
Milwaukee started its brush-cutting career with an attachment for the M18 Fuel Quik-Lok system and is now introducing the M18 Fuel 3015 as a dedicated bike handle brush cutter. Oozing professionalism in both the performance of the tool and the comfort of the harness, this 2-speed model is a legitimate gas replacement that crews can rely on when string trimmers just won’t cut it. The bare tool runs $399.
Milwaukee launched three new inspection SKUs as an expansion of the M-Spector line. The more advanced two models are M12 M-Spector 360 cameras featuring a 720P 4.3-inch viewing screen with outstanding clarity and a 10mm camera head that only need a 3/8-inch hole for access. The 360 in the name comes from the ability to rotate the image 360°. Model 2323-21 comes as a kit with a 4-foot cable for $229. Model 2324-21 comes as a kit with a 10-foot cable for $259.
The third model (2319-20) uses alkaline batteries and has a 4-foot cable with 180° image rotation. it also has a 4.3-inch screen with improved image quality, but the resolution isn’t as high as the M12 models above. It runs $109.
Milwaukee is well-known for its focus on trade-specific tools and that really shows in the M18 Fuel 5 CFM Vacuum Pump (2941-21). Compatible with 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2-inch ports, this evacuation specialist helps HVAC techs avoid the need to seek out a power source outside or inside a client’s residents and get on with the job at hand more conveniently. Look for this one to begin shipping on July 20 for $799 as a kit.
