  • Why should I choose Milwaukee Power Tools?

    Milwaukee power tools are a must-have if you prioritise durability, performance, and a comprehensive cordless system. Here are some of their strengths:

    • Durability and Reliability: Milwaukee has a reputation for building tools that can withstand tough jobsites and heavy use. They’re a favorite among professional tradespeople for this reason.
    • Performance: Milwaukee cordless tools are known for their power and capability. Whether it’s drilling through tough materials or driving long screws, their tools are built to handle demanding tasks.
    • Cordless Systems: Milwaukee offers two main cordless battery platforms (M12 and M18) with a wide range of compatible tools. This allows you to invest in batteries and use them across a variety of tools, saving money in the long run.

    Ultimately, the best way to decide is to research specific tools you need and read reviews to see how Milwaukee stacks up against the competition.

  • What is the difference between Milwaukee M12 and M18 tools?

    There are a few differences between M18 and M12 tools, however, one of the key differences lies within the Power and Performance of the tools for example:

    • Milwaukee M18 tools is the more powerful platform. M18 tools are ideal for heavy-duty applications, driving larger screws, drilling tougher materials, and handling high-torque tasks.
    • M12 offers a good balance between power and portability. These tools are well-suited for lighter tasks like furniture assembly, cabinetry work, and everyday DIY projects.

    Size and Weight:

    • M18: M18 tools are generally bigger and heavier due to their more powerful motors and larger batteries. This can be a disadvantage for tight spaces or overhead work.
    • M12: Much lighter and more compact than M18 tools, M12 excels in situations where maneuverability and ease of use are crucial. Their smaller size allows for better control and handling in confined areas.

    Battery Life:

    • M18: With larger batteries, M18 tools tend to have longer run times on a single charge. This is beneficial for extended projects or continuous use.
    • M12: While the battery life may be shorter than M18, M12 batteries recharge faster due to their smaller size. Additionally, the lighter weight of the tools often translates to less fatigue and potentially more work accomplished within a single battery charge.


    • M18: Construction workers, mechanics, serious DIYers, and professionals who need heavy-duty power will find M18 most suitable.
    • M12: Carpenters, electricians, hobbyists, and anyone who prioritizes portability and comfortable use in tight spaces will benefit from M12’s size and weight advantage.
  • What’s the difference between M18 and M18 Fuel Tools?

    There are a few differences between M18 and M18 FUEL tools, however, one of the key differences lies within the motors of the tools.

    M18 tools typically use brushed motors. Brushed can sometimes be considered less powerful compared to brushless motors. M18 FUEL tools come equipped with brushless motors. Brushless motors rely on electronic controls instead of brushes, offering several advantages, including:

    • More power and efficiency: Brushless motors generate more power and consume less battery, allowing you to work for longer durations.
    • Durability: Without components that wear out like brushes, brushless motors generally last longer.
    • Reduced heat: Brushless motors generate less heat, keeping the tool cooler and potentially extending its lifespan.
    • Better control: Brushless motors may provide more precise speed control for certain tasks.

    Here’s a breakdown of some additional factors to consider:

    RedLink Plus Technology: M18 FUEL tools often integrate Milwaukee’s RedLink Plus technology. This system uses advanced communication between batteries and tools to provide features like overload protection, extended tool life, and optimized performance.

    M18 High Output Batteries: While both M18 and M18 FUEL tools work with regular M18 batteries, M18 FUEL tools can leverage the extra power of M18 High Output batteries more effectively.

    In essence, M18 FUEL represents Milwaukee’s higher-performance line within their M18 platform. If you prioritize affordability and light-duty tasks, M18 tools will suit you perfectly. But, for more demanding applications, M18 FUEL’s superior power, durability, and features may make a better choice.
