The Next Breakthrough Is Here: The World’s First 18V Large Angle Grinder

The M18 FUEL™ Large Angle Grinder is the world's first single 18v battery operated LARGE ANGLE GRINDER delivering the power to grind, lighter than corded tools and up to 68 cuts per Charge in 42 mm stainless steel pipe.

“Our leadership in cordless technologies is reaching new bounds – we can now deliver solutions that were previously untouchable in the 18V space,” said Jochen Herterich, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Through a ground-up redesign of our electronics, to the manufacture of a powerful new motor and a brand-new powerhouse – the M18 REDLITHIUM-ION HIGH OUTPUT12.0 Ah Battery - we can create the world’s very first 18V large angle grinder that not only features an aggressive    230 mm grinding capacity, but does so while being lighter than our

 corded large angle grinder. And we could accomplish all of this without asking users to equip two batteries or move up to higher voltage. It’s the ultimate boost to productivity!”

True to all M18 FUEL solutions, the new Large Angle Grinder combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack and REDLINK PLUS intelligence. However, to deliver the world’s first 18V LAG, Milwaukee® reengineered these critical cordless components to deliver the very best performance catered to this tool and its applications.

Milwaukee® created a brand-new POWERSTATE Brushless Motor for this grinder, delivering the speed and capacity to grind and cut through tough applications without bogging down. Milwaukee® also redesigned from the ground-up the REDLINK PLUS Intelligence featured in this tool, utilising electronics never used before in power tools. This newly designed REDLINK PLUS Intelligence package ensures maximum performance of the tool under load and prevents against overload and overheat.

Equipped with Milwaukee®’s new M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT 12.0 Ah Battery, the tool eliminates the hassle of cords or constant switching-out of multiple battery packs, while exceeding the performance of higher voltage solutions in the industry. The new HIGH OUTPUT12.0 Ah Battery provides 50% more power, runs 50% cooler and delivers 33% more run-time than the M18 REDLITHIUM-ION 9.0 Ah Battery. In conjunction with REDLINK PLUS Intelligence and the POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, the HIGH OUTPUT Battery allows users to push the grinder hard and work all day – delivering more work-per-charge than any other professional power tool system.

Milwaukee® 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 Large Angle Grinder is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 135 power tool products, and is a true testament to Milwaukee®’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.

* M18 FUEL is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 FUEL products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations - the POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM-ION Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS Intelligence Hardware and Software - that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
