Milwaukee 12-Inch Digital Measuring Wheel

Milwaukee Digital Measuring Wheel

Milwaukee Aims to Provide the Most Efficient Measuring Wheel on the Market

This June, Milwaukee Tool adds another innovative measurement and layout tool to their roster, and it goes beyond tapes or other manual measuring wheels. The Milwaukee 12” Digital Measuring Wheel (48-22-5112) builds upon the existing 6- and 12-inch products in the lineup with a design that highlights control, convenience, and ease of use.

The Big Deal

The Milwaukee Digital Measuring Wheel features handle-mounted buttons and a backlit digital LCD display. Together, they let you easily use the tool one-handed. It also gives you an intuitive user interface that saves up to four measurements. You can access these by using the Memory button.

Milwaukee always seems to remember ergonomics, so it doesn’t surprise us to find that the Digital Measuring Wheel has a telescoping frame that lets you customize the height. This makes the wheel more comfortable to use, regardless of height. It also makes this measuring tool easy to store. Fully extended, it measures 38.2 inches, and it collapses down to just 24.25 inches.

It even has a folding kickstand so it stays upright when you pause to take notes.

And, when you take measurements, you can select and convert them between imperial, metric, and engineer scales. You can hold and clear measurements with just the touch of a button as well. 

This tool runs off of two AAA batteries, which are conveniently included. Battery status appears at the top right of the LCD screen so you can gauge your remaining runtime. The Milwaukee Digital Measurement Wheel features an IP54 rating, providing protection against both dust and water on the jobsite.


Milwaukee expects this 12″ Digital Measuring Wheel to retail for just under $80. They also guarantee customer support by backing this tool with their limited lifetime warranty.
