The MX FUEL Equipment System from Milwaukee Tools was launched in New Zealand recently.
Milwaukee Tools says the ground-breaking cordless system revolutionises the equipment market by delivering the performance, run-time and durability demanded by the trades without the hazards associated with emissions, noise, vibration and the frustrations of petrol maintenance.
Each of the solutions on the MX FUEL System goes beyond the limitations of petrol and power cords, and operate off one completely compatible battery system.
More is being asked of trade professionals every single day. As these demands grow, they need to stay safe and productive, and Milwaukee has developed effective solutions to the problems they face.
After spending more than 10,000 hours with users on thousands of job sites globally, the company discovered petrol and AC equipment had considerable safety and productivity challenges due to limited innovation over the years.
From petrol emission headaches to design features that were causing stress on users’ bodies over time, it was clear that today’s equipment wasn’t delivering on user needs.
By dramatically reducing the hazards and frustrations of the equipment that has dominated the marketplace for years, MX FUEL will fundamentally change job sites everywhere.
What is MX FUEL?
The new MX FUEL Equipment System will be the platform that provides the technology and capability for Milwaukee to take a giant step into the equipment space.
Like the M12 and M18 Systems, MX FUEL will feature three Milwaukee exclusive innovations — the Powerstate Brushless Motor, Redlink Plus Intelligence, and the MX FUEL Redlithium Battery Pack — to deliver a platform of equipment solutions designed from the ground up to exceed the demands of the professional trades.
Why MX FUEL?
Ever since Milwaukee first introduced the ability to utilise lithium-ion technology in power tools, a revolution has taken place on job sites worldwide.
The capabilities of cordless technology have been pushed to new limits, providing new solutions that challenge existing perceptions of what can be powered by cordless technology.
But while power tools have received many benefits from cordless technology, the same cannot be as readily said about equipment.
Exposure to emissions, vibration and noise continues to create prevalent health concerns for professionals in the construction trades.
The MX FUEL Equipment System is the output of years of tireless research and investment in new technology, ground-up development of new batteries, motors and electronics — all simultaneously developed under one roof.
Designed to take on the very same petrol and AC equipment that the professional trades have depended on for years, this system eliminates the emissions, and reduces the overall noise, vibration and frustrations of petrol maintenance that have been deemed acceptable on job sites for decades — and additionally eliminates tripping breakers, voltage drops and trip hazards.
MX FUEL products overview:
During job site research, Milwaukee searched for the biggest improvements it could make to overall user safety and productivity. After analysing the most prevalent pain points, Milwaukee chose five products and two batteries for the initial launch of MX FUEL.
Each of these products represents applications that have historically been challenging experiences for users due to stagnant equipment innovation, and are the first battery-powered solutions of their kind.
MX FUEL 355mm (14”) Cut Off Saw
Delivers a smooth experience by providing true 355mm (14”) cut capacity, fast cuts from start to finish, and no petrol headaches. No emissions, less vibration, and quiet operation allows users to work safer and be more productive.
MX FUEL Breaker
Delivers a fast, safe and easy concrete demolition experience. This productive breaker provides low vibration and is lightweight to get the job done.
MX FUEL Core Drill
Allows users the ability to core with more confidence through maximum control and enhanced safety with a patented clutch and Autostop technology. It delivers the power to core up to 152mm (6”) holes in reinforced concrete.
MX FUEL Redlithium Battery Packs
By using industry-leading lithium-ion technology, all MX FUEL batteries fit all MX FUEL equipment. The patented design protects the battery against drops, water and harsh environments, while robust electronics optimise performance for MX FUEL equipment.
MX FUEL Tower Light
The new way to light the site. This portable 3m light for indoor and outdoor use, provides up to 27,000 lumens of task and area lighting, withstanding harsh job site environments. This product is expected to join the range shortly after the initial launch in August 2020.
MX FUEL Sewer Drum Machine
Simplifies sewer calls, and allows for one-person transportation in and out of a service van and up and down stairs. It has the power to clear roots up to 60m out, while providing protection against the mess with an enclosed drum. This product is expected to join the range shortly after the initial launch in August 2020.
