MILWAUKEE® M18 FPFT is the World’s FIRST Battery Powered Fish Tape Solution!

Through the AUTO-RUN Powered Feed and Retract, this groundbreaking new solution eliminates the need for manual pulling tools, allowing users to easily feed the tape with less fatigue, and automatically reels in the tape.

“When it comes to pulling new wire through walls and electrical conduit, electricians have long depended upon hand tool fish tapes as the first step in the installation

process. Unfortunately, the longer the run the more difficult it is to maneuver current hand tool fish tapes due to inefficient binding and feeding,” said Christian Bschor, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By harnessing the cordless technology behind our M18 FUEL system* we’re now able to deliver the world’s first battery powered fish tape – providing physical relief, less mess, and more productivity to electricians everywhere.”  

Powered by a POWERSTATE brushless motor, the M18 FUEL Pulling Fish Tape blends the use of a hand tool with that of a puller to pull wire through 30 meter run with three 90° bends – a first for the industry. The AUTO-RUN powered feed and retract, with variable speed trigger, gives users the control to push wire through difficult runs without the repetitive reeling out motion of hand tool fish tapes. MILWAUKEE® REDLINK PLUS intelligence ensures maximum performance and protection from overload.

To ensure users are prepared for all situations – no matter length or material – the new tool features a powered base that is powered by the M18 REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack and is compatible with 4 anti-binding steel and non-conductive polyester tape drums that are easily interchangeable.

Milwaukee Tool is committed to improving productivity by providing electricians with performance-driven solutions that increase confidence throughout the entire electrical construction cycle. The new M18 FUEL Pulling Fish Tape is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 165 power tool products, and is a true testament to Milwaukee Tools focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.

*M18 FUEL is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering outstanding 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 outstanding power, run time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
