Milwaukee® Introduces the M18 FUEL™ Paddle Mixer

By harnessing their industry- leading M18 FUEL technology*, Milwaukee® has developed a dedicated cordless paddle mixer designed with the performance, adaptability and control needed by the trades. Powerful enough to mix heavy compounds, THe M18 FUEL paddle mixer is a great addition for multiple trades.

“When you take a look at the variety of mud mixing solutions available to Drywall contractors, General Builders, Paint and Tiling specialists, not only are many hindered by cords but not a single one is a dedicated solution for the trades. With this in mind, we set out to design a Compact Paddle Mixer that’s a dedicated solution for these professionals,” said Lewis Tiffany, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “From speed control to better functionality, the M18 FUEL Paddle Mixer is the first mixer that’s been designed specifically to address the needs of the trades. Engineered to tackle heavy compounds, such as concrete, it has the performance to fully replace corded mixers in many applications. Finally, professionals have a mud mixer that adapts to the way they work – increasing their productivity and mobility like never before.”

By combining three exclusive innovations - the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack and REDLINK PLUS intelligence- the new M18 FUEL Paddle Mixer delivers break-through power to mix heavy compounds from Building Render to concrete while maintaining its speed and without bogging down under heavy load. Because the tool is not restrained by a cord it’s easily portable, so users can work anywhere they need to without worrying about staying closer to a power source.

For unmatched comfort and control, the tool features a 180° adjustable handle and 8 modes of speed. Users simply need to adjust the handle to their preferred choice of 16 different handle positions, and set to the ideal speed based on the compound mix. A variable speed dial allows users the option of assigning a speed setting and then locking it on to mix without needing to keep their finger on the trigger.

When equipped with an M18 REDLITHIUM-ION 5.0 Ah battery pack the tool provides industry-leading run time with up to 30 minutes of continuous use on a single charge.

Milwaukee®’s POWERSTATE brushless motor improves the motor life of the tool by up to 10X the competition. A 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 FUELPaddle Mixer is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 135 power tool products.

* 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.
