Every item on this list is manufactured by Milwaukee, our primary partner for power tools. Established in 1924, they’re the leading manufacturer in the industry and provide nothing but the highest quality and top performance tools.

Reliable and durable, their M18 range is the best series they have produced yet. Any product from the M18 range can be used with the same RedLithium Battery which maximises the tool’s performance. Delivering more run-time with less recharges, this system provides ultimate cordless efficiency.

So read on to see our list of the top five gifts from the Milwaukee M18 Power Tool Range.

 

1. M18 ONE-KEY Fuel Powerpack  1/2" Hammer Drill/Driver Kit

This kit encourages ultimate productivity by providing an impressive 2,000 RPM, drilling fast even under a heavy load. Available in a compact size, not only allowing you to reach tighter spaces but enabling you to work for longer periods of time with decreased fatigue. With a Powerstate Brushless Motor, this tool is top of the range and exclusively for the professionals. One of the most interesting features of this kit is “One Key”, a built in wireless connection to smart phones. This feature allows you to track the location and performance of your tool when it is in a 100ft range and the range can even be expanded on as the tool can connect to 4 devices. The app provides tool customisation also as you can save to memory the desired output performance (once saved, connection to Wi-Fi is no longer necessary). The One Key app makes pinpointing missing tools even easier, keeping records of when last the tool was used. Maximum performance is provided with Redlink Plus Intellegence, a technology which protects the tool from overheating and provides superior performance.

2. M18 Compact Brushless 2-Tool Combo Kit, Drill Driver/Impact Driver

Another brilliant kit from Milwaukee, these powerful and compact devices are the ultimate drilling and fastening duo. Featuring the Milwaukee brushless motors, these tools are an efficient blend of power and weight. Ergonomically designed with your performance in mind and with the goal of optimising your workplace, these tools have Redlink Plus Intelligence built in which even enhances the performance of the RedLithium Battery. So with less charge time but more battery life, you can be guaranteed your tools will work for longer – and work harder.

3. M18 Heavy Duty 115mm Angle Grinder

“Nothing but Heavy Duty” is the slogan of Milwaukee and for good reason. Each tool is carefully designed for optimum ergonomics and the M18 range provides software for ultimate durability. This 115mm Angle Grinder has the maximum power to weight ratio with a 4 pole motor, giving you unparalleled power. Like all of the Milwaukee M18 tools, the angle grinder has superior electronics ensuring this is a purchase that will provide you with quality performance for much longer than any other power tool range. There are a number of features that place this power tool at the top of its league: the handle can be positioned in multiple ways for ease of use, remaining charge can be viewed on the fuel gauge, and a non-lockable switch prevents automatic start-ups. Safety is priority with all power tools and this angle grinder comes with a full metal gear case and safety guard.

4. M18 Heavy Duty Mitre Saw

Providing incredible accuracy, the Milwaukee Mitre Saw comes with an adjustable laser, allowing perfect alignment for each cut. A built in LED light makes sure your work area is totally illuminated for safety and accuracy. There are a number of features in place to make this mitre saw as accurate as possible: dual vertical steel rails ensure smooth cutting, a steel detent plate with pre-set angles makes sure your cuts are repeatedly accurate and a mitre release system means you can change cutting orientation quickly and smoothly. The M18 Mitre Saw moves at an impressive 2,700rpm, maximising your efficiency. The blade can be changed quickly and easily thanks to the spindle lock, making sure you are not slowed in your work.

5. M18 Compact Right Angle Impact Driver

A nifty edition to the M18 range, the Right Angle Impact Driver has a compact 53mm head and is only 307mm in length, making it perfect for reaching small spaces. The handle has multiple positions for maximum comfort and an LED light ensures your workplace is always appropriately lit. This impact driver has 2 speed settings allowing you to choose the best possible speed for whatever project you are working on. Other features of this excellent tool include a full metal gearbox and gears for maximum torque, as well as a ¼ Hex chuck for quick and easy one-handed bit changes.
