MARKHAM, ON- Milwaukee Tool disrupts corded jobsite cleanup vacuums with performance driven wet/dry vacuum solutions. This launch includes the M18 FUEL™ 6 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum, M18 FUEL™ 9 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum, and the M18 FUEL™ 12 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum, designed to outperform 3.5 to 4.25 Peak HP corded wet/dry vacuums while maintaining the most durable wheels and hoses for maximum durability and is the most versatile wet/dry vacuum system on the market today.
“Milwaukee Tool first entered the cordless jobsite cleanup space in 2010 with one solution designed for a wide range of users. As we talked with professionals who use medium to large capacity wet/dry vacuums, we found that users demanded cordless solutions on top of the many frustrations we set out to solve. Our innovative solutions allow professionals to tackle medium to large capacity jobsite cleanup applications without sacrificing performance. These solutions also improve the common frustrations centred around durability with hoses and wheels and create an easy-to-use versatile solution,” said David Mobarak, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “2022 brings the largest entry into the jobsite cleanup space for Milwaukee, and we are excited to provide a wide range of cordless vacuums and AIR-TIP™ Trade-Focused Vacuum accessories to complete the whole solution and enhance the cleaning experience.”
Each vacuum comes equipped with the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ technology to deliver more power and run cooler, and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software, providing unmatched performance and delivering more cleaning power than corded 3.5 – 4.25 Peak HP wet/dry vacuums. The M18 FUEL™ 6 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum outperforms 3.5 Peak HP wet/dry vacuums, which is ideal for cleanup of drywall dust, concrete dust, and wood/metal shavings. For increased performance and capacity, the M18 FUEL™ 9 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum outperforms 4.25 Peak HP wet/dry vacuums. The 12 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum provides the performance to outperform 4.25 Peak HP wet/dry vacuums. With the Premium Wet/Dry Vacuum Cart, there is increased durability and unmatched mobility on jobsites with four storage spaces for vacuum accessories.
To alleviate common failure points with existing wet/dry vacuum solutions, the new cordless wet/dry vacuums are built with the most durable wheels and hoses to survive the most demanding jobsites. Reinforced casters increase the longevity of the wheels, which results in more mobility through jobsite terrain. The flexible vacuum hose is built with a custom two-part hose design that is constructed of durable, crush and twist-resistant materials to prevent tears that lead to more downtime. In addition to the two-part design, the hoses are also built with anti-static material to prevent static buildup when cleaning fine particles and custom rubber gaskets improve airflow and performance while in use.
Not only are the vacuums durable, but they are also the most versatile Wet/Dry vacuum system on the market with interchangeable vacuum tanks, motorheads, and carts. Users can easily exchange motor heads to vary performance, tanks for different holding capacities, and carts for versatile transportation options for the vacuums around the jobsite. With the interchangeability for varying performance, holding capacity, and mobility, the system can adapt to any jobsite.
To meet performance expectations in certain high-demand applications while maintaining system compatibility, the M18 FUEL™ 9 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum and the M18 FUEL™ 12 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum require the simultaneous use of two M18™ REDLITHIUM™ High Output batteries. For the M18 FUEL™ 9 -12 Gallon Dual-Battery Wet/Dry Vacuum, the max power mode delivers up to 34 minutes of continuous cleaning time (up to 1,600 ft²) and up to 49 minutes (up to 1,800 ft²) on max run-time mode per charge on two M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Battery Packs.
Milwaukee Tool 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™ 6, 9 & 12 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuums are fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 200+ solutions.
Milwaukee Tool set out to solve user needs with 19 innovative AIR-TIP™ Trade Focused Vacuum Accessories that are fully compatible with other wet/dry vacuum brands. Setting a new standard for products once seen as a commodity, Milwaukee Tool focuses on innovation at the end of the hose. The range of new vacuum accessories includes new to world designs, improvements to dated options, and integration of cordless technology to the vacuum accessory line for maximum efficiency throughout the workday. These improvements will help users clean faster, reach places they have not been able to reach before, and upgrade the overall jobsite cleanup experience.
By incorporating cordless technology, Milwaukee improves the clean-up process with the M12™ AIR-TIP™ Utility Nozzle. Powered by an M12™ REDLITHIUM™ Battery, the power brush roll agitates debris for deep cleaning applications. For increased productivity, the tool allows for more clean-up in one pass compared to a standard floor vacuum attachment. In addition to performance, the universal accessory is built with an LED light for increased visibility in low lit environments.
In addition to the introduction of cordless technology, Milwaukee brings new to world designs to the jobsite cleanup space with innovative AIR-TIP™ solutions. The AIR-TIP™ Magnetic Utility Nozzle features a new-to-world design allowing users to catch metal hardware. The magnetic strip above the nozzle prevents damage to the bags and filters inside the wet/dry vacuums by reducing the amount of hardware that passes through the hose. In addition, the new AIR-TIP™ Long Reach Flexible Micro Hose Set has five interchangeable hose lengths and diameters for greater access in the hard-to-reach spaces on the site. An easy, quarter-turn installation process for each micro hose attachment keeps the professional moving throughout the day.
Comparatively to the new-to-world designs, Milwaukee also innovates dated products with solutions that improve efficiencies to cleanup applications. For instance, the new AIR-TIP™ Cross Brush Tool was designed with cross brush bristles to prevent clogging and provide easier clean-up compared to the traditional round dust brush. The AIR-TIP™ Claw Utility Nozzle w/ Brushes, make handheld clean-up more effective with the ergonomic claw grip design and bristles for more cleaning leverage. Similarly, the AIR-TIP™ Rocking Utility Nozzle w/ Brushes make handheld cleanup easier with bevels on either side of the nozzle and brushes all around the tool to ensure it will not get stuck to surfaces when users are cleaning. As a versatile solution, the AIR-TIP™ accessories are compatible with 1-1/4″, 1-7/8″, and 2-1/2 Milwaukee Tool hoses and other 1-1/4″, 1-7/8″, and 2-½ diameter hoses.
With the introduction of these AIR-TIP™ Trade Focused Vacuum Accessories, Milwaukee Tool has taken the cordless, new-to-world designs, improvements to dated accessories, and spanned the innovation across 19 products to change the way users cleanup on the jobsite.
