Milwaukee Tool New Product Launch


Dan and I recently took a road trip up to Milwaukee to see some of their new tools coming out this year.  Besides having to deal with Dan, I have to say the trip was fun.  We had a chance to see some pretty cool new tools and other gadgets, plus get some hands on.  One thing that really surprised me was how many new tools they will be releasing this year.  Now they are coming out with tons of new tools, so I can’t possibly cover them all, so for now I am only going to cover a few of them.  As time goes on, we will keep you updated with more of the new releases.

If you have any questions whether Milwaukee has a lot of tools in their line up, just take a look at this picture below.  I am sure no one will argue, but I had to find some way to show off this line huge line of tools.

All Tools

Milwaukee LED Lights

Lights are great, but when they are LED lights, well that’s just awesome.  Milwaukee is introducing two new LED lights, an M18 and M12 lights.  Both lights are very bright, brighter than you would expect.  The M18 (2361-20) has 1100 Lumens with a runtime of 3 hours on high and 6 hours on low.  What’s really cool is all the different ways a user can position the light to light up an area.

Launch Date: October 2013





Milwaukee M18 Fuel Circular Saw

Yes you heard that right, an 18V brushless circular saw.  I always thought the Milwaukee 18V circular saw (2730-22) was one of the best on the market, but it just got better with a brushless motor and 4.0 A/h battery.  Cutting through LVL or more is a snap.  They didn’t stop there.  They also introduced a more rugged shoe and a nice little dust blower in the front to help you see your line as you cut.

Launch Date: October 2013





Milwaukee M18 Fuel Sawzall

The company who invented the reciprocating saw just took this one step further with the introduction of a brushless Sawzall (2720-22).  Not only is it more powerful than their older version, but now it has an adjustable shoe.

Launch Date: October 2013





Milwaukee M18 Fuel Grinder

Yes another brushless tool, the M18 grinder (2780-22).  More ergonomic and powerful.  Well check out the video below and see for yourself.

Launch Date: October 2013



Milwaukee M18 Multi Tool

I know we have had a lot of people ask about a M18 Multi tool (2626-22) and if Milwaukee would ever come out with one.  Well guess what, they did or I should say they will.  Variable speed and tool-less blade change, plus they have two accessories you can buy such as a depth gauge and dust collection.

Launch Date: November 2013




Milwaukee M12 Heated Line

If you own a M12 heated jacket, you know how valuable these jackets are on a cold day.  Well now you can get heated hoodies or heated hand warmers.

Launch Date: August 2013




Milwaukee M12 Fuel Rotary Hammer

We tested the brushed version of this tool, but can’t wait to get our hands on this one.  This is part of their Fuel line which means this bad boy is brushless (2416-22XC).  This is one of my favorite tools in the M12 line up.  In fact, we are even giving one away in our Ultimate Tool Bag Giveaway.

Launch Date: They are out, you should know that




Milwaukee M18 Fuel Impact Wrenches

These are some bad boys and are designed for the serious user.  Looking for a powerful impact wrench?  These will suit your needs, trust me.

Launch Date: October 2013




Milwaukee Hand Tools

Holy cow, where do I start?  Knives, Knives and more knives, plus screwdrivers, nut drivers and more.  It’s madness.

Launch Date: Depends which tool you want.



Milwaukee Accessories

Drywall, utility blades, bottle openers, markers (which we tested on Dan’s forehead, but we don’t recommend it for this use.), tape measures and more.  Where does it stop?  Well I guess for Milwaukee it doesn’t.  If there is a need, Milwaukee will be there.


This will allow the user to write and mark even on dusty areas, block or concrete, plus a stylus on the end for your tablet.

In the end this is only a small sample of what Milwaukee will be releasing in 2013.  There was a lot more, but we had to leave early after Dan tried to steal this thing below.  We were stopped and politely asked to leave.  Stay tuned for more and cool stuff from Milwaukee tools.




  1. That must have been great! Milwaukee is really cranking out some tools, cant wait till the individual reviews from you guys!

  2. I think that thing Dan tried to steal is the “Milwaukee Box360PS4”. The ultimate video game console. Thanks again for going and reporting!

  3. Thanks Eric, you have made me want to crawl up in a corner and cry. I’m buying a new house and consequently, I will lack sufficient funding to upgrade to these awesome new tools for some time.

  4. Amazing !!! But there is no video for the grinder . Cant wait to try them the circular saw and the sawzall look f&@€%#*+%ing powerfull

  5. I am a Milwaukee guy through and through. I am staring my hand tool collection and can’t wait for this stuff. However, I must say that those tape measures are FUGLY…….wow….in my opinion the designer should be fired. Ok, I don’t know if their that bad, they just look ugly for Milwaukee who usually has sharp looking products.

  6. WOW ! The grinder is CRAZY ! And they have a paddle switch version i think , for me its a must have ! A other charger ! I will need a van just for my chargers .:-) The only thing missing is a m12 tablet to go with the pen ! I hope Dan’s forhead was not to hard to clean !

  7. Any news on a new M18 vacuum?

    The original m18 vacuum hasn’t had any improvements since 2008.

    With all of the innovation in the new tools, you would think they would give us a better way to clean up after the work is done.

    We need a compact vac like the little dewalt and an improved M18 vac.

  8. I agree about the vacuum. I have been thinking about getting one for a while, then Dewalt came out with two. I think Dewalt has past Milwaukee on vacuums.

  9. It might be awhile before they do redesign on the vacuum. I don’t think they sell a whole lot of them right now maybe with some good marketing and a brushless motor they can add some more sales. Right now they are concentrating on making brushless tools at the moment.

  10. Did they talk about the M28 line at all? Has Milwaukee decided that the M18 fuel performance is just as good or even better than the M28 line. There really hasn’t been too much going on with the higher voltage batteries except for concrete drilling.

  11. i am so confused, i dont know if i want dewalt or milwaukee brushless tools, by the way, when do the pocket knives come out?

  12. Brody i have DeWalt and im changing to Milwaukee, i cant stand to Wait that long for brushless saws, plus i really like the fuel and m12 stuff…

    • I’am 6′ 195 and I wear an XL which fits great. I know they say they should be a little tight to help keep the warmth in. Mine does great with an XL and if I want to have a sweatshirt under, I am fine also. Might want to try the XL. I have never tried a large on before, so not sure if that would fit to snug for you.

  17. hi rick i have m18 and dewalt 18v nicd but i think i might stay with milwaukee for a while instead of dewalt 20v max.

  18. I just ordered the fuel hammer drill driver kit with 2 xc batterys from cpo, it will take me a couple months to recover from this buy lol….

  19. Maybe 4 tools. The sawzall, m18 drill, light, and cordless saw. I love them. Like Dan, I don’t let anyone borrow them. 🙂 I’ve made shelves and toys for my daughter. They are great. Just wish I could afford more tools. How about you?

  20. This will be my first Milwaukee, I have several DeWalt 20v tools and they are great, but I am not happy at DeWalt as a company. I am tired of waiting, and waiting and waiting even longer for tools to release…DeWalt probably wont release brushless saws until the next media event…. I just cant wait that long and I really like and heard good things about fuel and I really like the M12 Line.. I am starting out with this drill then eventually get the impact and then save up till October when the other fuel tools come out…. Also I have just started seeing in the past couple of months a Milwaukee rep, He drives around in a red ford F-150 with Milwaukee all over, It kind of makes me feel better that if I ever have a problem there is someone close by, and another reason I like Milwaukee is there 5 year warranty.

  21. No one should be this excited over a bottle opener-but I am! Also looking to maybe try the heated gear-good reviews on that stuff. Milwaukee is bringing it! Whats the next company to diversify its product vase? Bosch?
