Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2-inch ProPEX Expander with ONE-KEY 2932-22XC

Milwaukee 2-Inch ProPEX Expander Feature

Milwaukee Expands The Expansion Lineup Again

Milwaukee expanded its line of cordless PEX expansion tools with the M18 FUEL 2-inch ProPEX Expander (2932-22XC). It delivers fast expansion of ProPEX pipes up to 2-inch. The tool forms a great, compact gateway between the existing Milwaukee M18 ProPEX expansion tool (which tops out at 1 1/2-inches) and the larger Milwaukee Force Logic ProPEX installation tool. It also adds Milwaukee One-Key technology, letting you track, secure, and manage your expander.

Milwaukee 2932-22XC Performance

The Milwaukee M18FUEL 2-inch ProPEX Expander features a pipe selector switch. This optimizes the expansion speed to match different sizes of ProPEX pipe. Milwaukee claims the 2932-22XC expander provides up to 3X faster connections in its “sweet spot” of 1-1/4″ to 2″ pipe. With the correct expander heads, you can also use it with PEX tubing down to 3/8″.

As an example, Milwaukee states the expansion time for a 2-inch ProPEX fitting to take less than 25 seconds to complete.


The base tool in the 2932-22XC kit weighs just under 11-pounds, not including the battery or the expander head. Milwaukee also used a D-handle design for the 2-Inch ProPex Expander that functions well given the design of the tool’s motor and gearcase. Though heavy, this is still designed as a one-handed tool. Like their other ProPEX tools, the auto-rotating mechanism helps you make quick, uniform expansions onto all your PEX fittings and tubing.

It also includes a dedicated 2-inch ProPEX head engineered specifically for this tool. It has an integrated cone design that gets you into tight corners easily by reducing the travel length of the cone.

As alluded to above, Milwaukee ONE-KEY technology lets you track, manage, and even lock down the tool using the ONE-KEY app. We like this integration as it more easily lets you add tools into your managed inventory.

Other Features
