Milwaukee M18 Fuel Braking Grinder is First to Offer Braking in Cordless Solution

With disruptive innovation in mind, the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Braking Grinder brings great new safety features. Citing safety as being a larger consideration in tool purchasing decisions, Milwaukee went into this design with the intention of creating the first cordless solution with braking.

Milwaukee on Their M18 Fuel Braking Grinder

“Jobsite Safety personnel have become major stakeholders in the tool purchasing process, and tools that combine best-in-class performance with features they desire are at the top of their approved tool lists. Milwaukee is not only making their choice easy with this tool, we are taking things to the next level. We are not only ensuring the wheel comes to a stop in under 2 seconds with a rapid stop braking feature and kickback-reducing clutch, but also eliminating a tripping hazard on the jobsite with the world’s first cordless braking grinder. While existing cordless braking grinders are effective as cut-off tools, this product is the ONLY cordless solution that can effectively grind, cut, and surface prep.”

Milwaukee’s second generation FUEL grinder promises even more power plus safety features to make it truly compete with corded models.

Features and Improvements

In addition to the braking features, the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Braking Grinder is also completely tool-free. The proprietary FIXTEC nut allows those accessory changes to be done quickly by hand along with tool-free guard adjustments. Milwaukee also kept durability at the forefront of the design. It features the same tool body, gearing system, and anti-vibration side handle as its corded cousins. Although it’s a little heavier (by 0.3 pounds), you’re picking up some significant improvements over the current 2780/2781 M18 Fuel Grinder.
