New M12 FUEL Installation Drill/Driver

Milwaukee Tool continues to drive jobsite productivity to new heights with the introduction of the M12 FUEL Installation Drill/Driver, developed specifically for the installation phase of construction and for MEP service contractors.

The versatile new tool features four dedicated solutions (3/8” Chuck, 1/4″ Hex, Offset, and Right-Angle) that can attach in 16 different positions to reach uniquely challenging locations. This four-in-one functionality, combined with the tool’s compact size and ability to deliver up to 300 in-lbs of max torque, provides users with unrivalled access and control, and maximum productivity.

“Since the introduction of the M12 System in 2008, our goal has always remained the same: to deliver compact and durable solutions that can access the tightest, hardest-to-reach spaces, replacing hand tools and challenging manual applications. However, despite the incredible compact size of these tools, there were still certain, confined spaces even our leading solutions couldn’t easily access – especially during installation jobs and applications that MEP service contractors commonly encounter,” said Cole Conrad, VP of product management. “It was clear we needed to develop a solution that pushed the boundaries of versatility to provide this unrivaled access on our M12 System – and it needed to have the performance and control necessary to accomplish these applications productively. Thus, the M12 FUEL Installation Drill/Driver was born!”

Each of the four attachments on this tool can connect in 16 different positions for access at almost every angle:

  • Right-Angle Attachment – Provides efficient fastening or drilling at 90-degrees for unrivaled access in tight spaces.
  • Offset Attachment – Provides ultimate access to tight corners and will not damage or mar finished materials when completing fastening applications.
  • All-Metal 3/8” Chuck and 1/4″ Hex Attachments – Add to user productivity by delivering the versatility to efficiently perform most drilling and fastening applications.
  • The All-Metal 3/8” Chuck, 1/4″ Hex, and Offset Attachments can also all attach to the Right-Angle Attachment for additional versatility and access.

The tool is purposely designed from the ground-up to make users’ jobs easier and more productive. An inline grip at the back positions the users’ hand higher on the tool, providing better access and control in tighter spaces. In addition, the top of the tool is flat, allowing it to be placed flush against surfaces for additional access when needed. These unique features combine with the tool’s compact size and weight allowing users to maneuver for best access in hard-to-reach places.

The front of the tool is also equipped with a magnetic bit holder that securely holds multiple bits, as well as a removable belt clip, enhancing jobsite productivity.

As with all M12 FUEL products, the new tool features three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS Intelligence Hardware and Software — to deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers 1600 RPMs and 300 in-lbs, ensuring plenty of power for installation or service applications.

For added utility, the tool comes with a compartmentalized contractor bag to make storage of each attachment quick and easy.

Available in September 2019, the new M12 FUEL Installation Drill/Driver is a testament to Milwaukee’s unrelenting focus on the user that results in solutions that are true answers to their frustrations.
