Last year the company grabbed the top spot for its M18 Top-Off 175W Power Supply. This year it is the company's new M18 FUEL 4 1/2 in., and 5 in., cordless grinder tools that have earned it our No. 1 position. Milwaukee Tool also follows Dorman HD Solutions (2014) and Snap-on (2018) as the only suppliers to finish first and second in our countdown in a single year.

Designed for the toughest grinding and cutting applications, Milwaukee Tool released its grinders in February. The new grinders generate 11A corded power and deliver 135 cuts per charge in 1/2 in. rebar. According to Milwaukee Tool, the grinders also feature a PowerState Brushless Motor that provides maximum sustained power and 8,500 RPM and enables users to complete the toughest grinding and cutting applications and push cordless grinders harder than ever before.
