Milwaukee M18 FUEL Drill/Driver

Milwaukee Tools introduces the new M18 FUEL™ ½” Drill/Driver (2603-20/22), which integrates three 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.

The new POWERSTATE™ brushless motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power and torque more efficiently. The POWERSTATE™ motor is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool, providing up to 725 in-lbs of torque. 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. 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 provides system of cordless power tool electronics that will maximize performance and protect the user’s investment. REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger, and constantly monitors this internal network to maintain ideal conditions.

In addition, all M18™ FUEL products will include the new multi-voltage charger to allow users to charge all M12™ and M18™ batteries with one charger. The new drills also come with an all metal ratcheting locking chuck for maximum grip, bit retention and durability, as well as a new contoured soft grip that gives users the ultimate comfort during prolonged use.

Available in March of 2012. For more information on M18 FUEL™, please visit www.milwaukeetool.com/fuel.
