Milwaukee 2803 – The next generation

Back at NPS 18 earlier in the year we saw Milwaukee go all out with its next generation of brushless technology, saws, drills, impacts… the list goes on. One thing that really caught my attention was the new flagship drill from Milwaukee, the 2803/4. Both available in drill/driver and hammer drill variants. Personally I opted

Milwaukee M12 Impact Driver 2553-20 (Generation II)

Its been over a year since NPS 17 and we caught our first sight of the much awaited compact brushless M12 impact driver.  Milwaukee hit a home run with their first generation Fuel 12v tools, they were powerful and only on a 12v battery but what they missed on was a compact design. The 2453

Milwaukee Search Light 2354-20

Tool manufacturers have come along way with cordless lighting options. The age of lithium ion batteries powering LED lights has transformed cordless lights.

Diamond Edged Metal Cut Off Wheels

For years we have been using bonded cutting wheels for our metal cutting needs, and for years we’ve understood their limitation and danger.  A rotation disc at 13,000 rpms that could explode at any minute. Not only can they break up and hurt users and people standing by, they don’t really last that long. Over
