Milwaukee MX FUEL. Pushing the power tool industry to the next level!!!

 

Battery technology has come a long way within the last few decades. It’s become so powerful and so efficient that its beginning to replace gasoline engines. That’s something you couldn’t say 15 years ago, but now times have changed. Milwaukee is introducing the MX FUEL. THE biggest launch Milwaukee has had in 10 years!!!  We’ve been waiting a long time since its announcement in 2019, Like a real LONG time, but I am glad we’re finally here!

 

Their starting lineup will consist a 14" Cut-Off Saw, Breaker, Handheld Core Drill W/Stand, Carry-On 3600w/1800w Power Supply, Rocket Tower Light/Charger, and a Sewer Drum Machine W/ POWERTREDZ. All are powered by Milwaukee’s NEW industry leading lithium-ion battery packs, the MX FUEL REDLITHIUM 3.0Ah and 6.0Ah. Let's go ahead and take a closer look at each MX FUEL item. There is a lot to cover, so I'll highlight the key features along the way.

 

 

 Milwaukee MX FUEL MXF314-1XC 14" Cut-Off Saw

I was fortunate enough to have a firsthand experience with this cut-off saw and my expectations were not disappointed. As soon as I pulled the trigger and felt the massive POWER as I was cutting through concrete, WITHOUT the help of a gasoline engine. I knew at that very moment…Milwaukee revolutionized the power tool industry!

 

Full 14” Cut Capacity

14” capacity gives you the ability to cut up to 5” depths in every application and finish the job with fewer passes. A 20mm/1” arbor adapter is included to maximize versatility and prevent wasted time searching for compatible blade.

 

One-Key Compatible

Track, manage, and secure equipment from your mobile device or computer using the industry's largest Bluetooth community tracking network. If ever loss or stolen, prevent tampering with remote lockout capability.

 

Onboard Water Connection

An onboard water connection allows you to use the saw for both dry and wet applications. A universal quick connect hose ensures simple and effective wet cutting in concrete/masonry applications.

 

Push Button Activation

The push button activation requires 97% less effort than a recoil start by eliminating the repetitive motions of a pull start. It allows you to start the saw in seconds every time, reducing downtime so you can get the job done faster.

 

Wheels

Wheels on the front of the saw help create a straight, consistent cut with less strain.

 

 

 Milwaukee MX FUEL MXF368-1XC Breaker

You'll quickly learn that the two most talked about factors of this breaker is the power and runtime. Not to mention how portable it is. You can easily grab it with one hand and go. You no longer have to worry about cords, hoses, or compressors. Controlling this breaker is so easy because it vibrates less than your typical jackhammers.

 Milwaukee MX FUEL MXF301-2CXS Handheld Core Drill Kit W/ Stand

I've seen this core drill in action and it's very impressive. The clutch and AUTOSTOP is truly the next level of innovation. You can stand up on an 8’ ladder and not worry about any kickbacks, making it very safe to operate. Once it engages, it also reduces stress on the motor and the bit. Just another example on how Milwaukee is pushing the power tool industry forward.

 

AUTOSTOP and Patented Clutch

A patented clutch and AUTOSTOP technology delivers a safer handheld coring experience by providing maximum control and preventing over rotation in case the machine gets bound up.

 

Compact Stand

The compact stand turns the handheld core drill into a portable, lightweight, rig-mounted solution for more versatile coring up to 6” holes. Easy-to-adjust angle mast settings, and the option to anchor or vacuum provide a versatile solution for coring on site.

 

Pressure Gauge and LED Level

An integrated Pressure Gauge helps provide the most efficient drilling pressure to maximize productivity and runtime. The LED level ensures easy and accurate readouts.

 

Onboard Water Connection

An onboard water connection allows you to core in both dry and wet applications. A universal quick connect hose ensures simple and effective wet drilling in the toughest applications.

 Milwaukee MX FUEL Carry-On 3600w/1800w Power Supply

Do you have a power bank in your backpack or car, just in case if your phone dies? This Power Supply is exactly that, just on steroids! This can easily power up heavy duty corded power tools like miter saws and rotary hammers, but yet produces clean energy to power up sensitive equipment like laptops and microwaves. Note: Milwaukee intends to release this product during Q3 2020.

 Milwaukee MX FUEL MXF041-1XC Rocket Tower Light/Charger

Having proper lighting in a job site is very important. Flood lights are a very common solution, but you then have to deal with extension cords. Worst case scenario is you don’t have any electricity on site, and you have to deal with towing a portable light tower. This fixes all of that! The setup is way too easy with almost no effort needed. This tower is extremely bright and easy to direct light where you need it the most.

 

Four Adjustable Light Heads

Four adjustable light heads provide up to 27,000 lumens for both task and area lighting. With the ability to maneuver the light heads in multiple orientations, you can direct light to wherever it’s needed.

 

Wheeled Base Design

8” all-terrain wheels provides easier transportation across uneven terrain with less effort.

 

Motorized Mast

Capable of being set up in seconds, the adjustable light heads can be extended to 10’ by the motorized mast to light overhead work or minimize shadows when casting light downwards. Its portability increased efficiency on the jobsite, as it can collapse down to 44” for easy transportation and storage.

 

Rated For Outdoor Use

Built to thrive in the toughest conditions, the ROCKET Tower Light is built with a durable, high-impact polycarbonate lens that delivers superior impact durability. Impact-resistant, reinforced legs and low center of gravity provide a stable base to provide stability on uneven surfaces. A sealed battery box ensures batteries are kept dry at all times.

 

One-Key Compatible

Customize, Track, and Manage from your mobile device. From a 100ft range, set the runtime which will adjust the output to give constant illumination for the job at hand, and check the remaining battery charge to know when it’s time to change out the battery.

 

 

 Milwaukee MX FUEL MXF501-1CP Sewer Drum Machine W/ POWERTREDZ

This sewer drum machine has the power to clear roots at 200 feet! It’s able to reach a cable spin speed of 200 RPMs. Its powered by a single MX FUEL battery, which allows you to power through multiple jobs on a single charge. However, the most exciting feature is the POWERTREDZ!!! It's a lift assist system that helps haul this up and down stairs. Sewer calls simplified!

 

POWERTREDZ Lift Assist

POWERTREDZ Lift Assist Technology allows for one-person transportation in and out of a service van and up and down stairs.

 

Cable Drive

Automatically feeds and retracts the cable.

 

Rapid Stop

Release of CABLE DRIVE bearings to quickly stop cable from feed or retracting.

Provides the best protection against spinning components and contain the mess.

 

One-Key Compatible

Track, manage, and secure equipment from your mobile device or computer using the industry’s largest Bluetooth community tracking network. If ever lost or stolen, prevent tampering with remote lockout capability.

 

 Milwaukee MX FUEL Batteries and Charger

What makes this all possible is the battery packs…THE MX FUEL REDLITHIUM BATTERY! All MX FUEL batteries are compatible with ANY MX FUEL equipment, and you have two options at point of launch. The XC battery pack (MXFXC406) is best for maximum power and runtime. Choose the CP battery pack (MXFCP203) for handheld applications or where weight and mobility are most critical. These are high output batteries, so I could see how these could drain quicker than your other batteries in your toolbox. However, the MX FUEL charger (MXFC) could charge these battery cells from 0-100, in about 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Which I admit, is not bad for this size battery. The charger also optimizes charge rate based on battery size and temperature, providing the best combinations of charge time and pack lifespan.

 

In my opinion, the power tool industry was starting to feel a little stale. Sure, new products were coming out every year but nothing like this. This is truly a leap forward and I am positive other competitors are taking notes right now. I am very excited to see the new wave of power tools within the next few years. We will be witnessing new power tools, from other manufacturers, using this exact same technology. This is only the beginning of a brand-new category.
