However, the cordless options available in today’s market do not offer the performance or run time required for prolonged use,” said Oliver Lerch, Vice President of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “Unwilling to settle on sub-par performance, we spent countless hours conducting jobsite research and advancing our technologies until we could introduce a solution that provides a true productivity enhancement with the M18 FUEL Die Grinder.”

By combining three exclusive innovations - the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack and REDLINK PLUS intelligence- the new M18 FUEL Die Grinder delivers break-through performance – providing users with the ability to remove material faster than a corded die grinder, and with more power than any cordless die grinder.

Milwaukee®’s POWERSTATE brushless motor improves the motor life of the tool by up to 10X the competition. The new Die Grinder also features the same metal housing and gearing system responsible for delivering the legendary performance and durability found in Milwaukee®’s high performance corded die grinders. This combination of no wearable components and superior durability means users will have to service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership.

Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL Die Grinder is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 100 power tool products, including a full range of cordless solutions for mechanical and metal fabrication professionals to cut, prep, weld and grind – from the M18 FUEL Magnetic Drill and M18 FUEL Grinder to the M18 FUEL Deep Cut Band Saw.

*M18 FUEL is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 FUEL products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack and REDLINK PLUS intelligence hardware and software - that deliver unmatched power, run time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
