Milwaukee has introduced the M12 FUEL 1/4-in. straight die grinder. Designed to replace pneumatic die grinders, this tool offers up to 0.3 HP performance, three-mode RPM control and greater mobility and access, the company says.
“When we introduced our M12 FUEL 1/4-in. straight die grinder, we disrupted the market and exceeded users’ expectations by delivering the industry’s first cordless right angle die grinder,” says Mark Kelly, Milwaukee Tool product manager for. “Now we’re expanding our offering in this new product category by introducing the M12 FUEL 1/4-in. straight die grinder equipped with 0.3 HP performance to outperform the most common 0.25 HP die grinders by 20 percent.”
As with all M12 FUEL products, the tool features three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations — the PowerState brushless motor, RedLithium battery pack and RedLink Plus Intelligence hardware and software— to provide users with the ability to remove material faster, and with more power, than pneumatic, according to Milwaukee.
The new die grinder features a responsive variable-speed trigger that allow users control with their most common 2-in. accessories. In addition, the cordless technology in this tool removes the need for compressors and hoses.
