Milwaukee M18 Fuel w/ One-Key ½” & 3/4″ High Torque Impact Wrench

Milwaukee recently took their original M18 Fuel high torque impact wrench and made it even better with it’s second iteration with even more power and more compact. The question is, how do you make the new model even better? By adding One Key functionality that is. Milwaukee did just that and made a One Key version of the 2nd Gen high torque impact wrench with the Milwaukee M18 Fuel w/ One-Key ½” High Torque Impact Wrench.

This comes as no surprise since we learned of the new One Key high torque impact wrenches during all the new tool announcements at the Milwaukee New Tool Symposium and it was part of Milwaukee’s game plan from the start to make a standard high torque impact wrench and a One Key model.

Milwaukee M18 Fuel w/ One-Key ½” High Torque Impact Wrench

  • Deliver up to 1400 ft-lbs of Nut-Busting Torque
  • Outperform pneumatic, corded, and cordless solutions
  • Through One-Key app, take control of the performance and deliver repeatable torque results
  • Extra control results in reduced damage to materials and reduced time & cost savings associated with rework
  • Includes range of predetermined setups like custom drive control, lug nut mode, concrete anchor mode
  • Create your own profiles saved directly to the tool
  • Once the tool is set, a phone is no longer needed
  • Available: December 2017
  • MSRP: $279 (2862-20); $499 (2862-22); $279 (2863-20); $499 (2863-22)

As part of the One Key features, the new model will have the ability to customize it’s torque and RPM along with the ability to choose from predetermined modes like Lug nut mode and concrete anchor mode. You’ll also be able to track and manage your One Key tool just like other One Key enabled tools through the use of the app.

Of course the One Key functionality isn’t for everyone, nor does everyone need the added functions. Those that do will find them valuable especially for specific and repeatable tasks, while those that don’t can still take advantage of the same model without the added One Key functionality. Options are better for everyone. Another misconception I often hear about One Key tools is that they need a smartphone to operate each and every time the tool is used, however that is not true. The truth is that you need the app to access and set the One Key features but after they’ve been set, you don’t need the app for regular use. In fact the app is not needed out of the box either as the One Key tools are standalone just like the models without One Key, its not until you need to access their advanced features that you need the app, but I think you get the point.

Just like the non One Key model, it will also come in a 1/2″ anvil with friction ring and a pin detent model and they also have 3/4″ friction ring One Key high torque impact wrench. The 1/2″ One Key models will be available in December 2017 while the 3/4″ One Key model will be available in February 2018.

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool will set a new standard for cordless impact wrench capability by taking the performance of the new M18 FUEL™ High Torque Impact Wrenches to the next level with the addition of ONE-KEY™. Delivering up to 1400 ft-lbs of Nut-Busting Torque, the M18 FUEL™ High Torque Impact Wrenches are the industry’s most powerful high torque impact wrenches, as well as the most compact. Capable of removing fasteners over 2X faster, the new tools outperform leading pneumatic, corded and cordless solutions today. Through the unique features that One-Key™* provides, users can now take control over that performance and deliver repeatable torque results resulting in reduced damage to materials and reduced time and cost savings associated with rework.

“When we launched the next generation of M18 FUEL™** High Torque Impact Wrenches earlier this year, we not only delivered the most powerful high torque impact wrenches on the market, but also introduced users to a solution that could finally eliminate hoses and cords once and for all. Now we’re disrupting the industry once again by allowing users to completely customize all of this power through the addition of One-Key™,” said Eric Rusch, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “As advancements in technology have grown, so too has the need for increased control over the performance of users’ impact wrenches. Not all users require the maximum torque at all times and desire to have more control over the output of their tool. With the M18 FUEL™ w/ One-Key™ Impact Wrenches we’re giving users complete control of their tool’s output with application-specific modes and customizable torque settings that will allow them to perform the job faster and more productively. These benefits provide an experience like users have never had before – the first cordless impact wrenches capable of the most repeatable torque performance out of any impact wrench available today.”

Through One-Key™ users will be able to customize, track, and manage the new impact wrenches. One-Key™ Tool Customization gives users access to a range of predetermined setups like custom drive control, lug nut mode, and concrete anchor mode:

  • Custom Drive Control
    • Adjust the RPMs to deliver more control for delicate fastening applications. Adjust the torque and RPMs to achieve repeatable torque results from repetitive fastening applications.
  • Lug Nut Mode
    • Eliminate the need for torque sticks by choosing between two settings that will deliver repeatable output on lug nut applications, and check final torque with a calibrated torque wrench.
  • Concrete Anchor Mode
    • Select this mode so the tool will automatically shut down once the anchor is seated to reduce broken anchors and stripped material.

Users can create their own profile and, with the touch of a button on the tool, easily go back and forth between saved profiles so each application is done with the most accurate and productive settings. Once the tool is set, a phone is no longer needed. Users can also access available setups based on common applications and materials.

The One-Key™ Integrated Tool Tracking functionality will allow users to identify where and when their impact wrench was last seen. Records and locations will update when any device with the One-Key™ app comes within 100ft of the impact, allowing the user to quickly pinpoint missing tools. Integrated Tool Security will provide an extra layer of protection to prevent theft and tampering. With Simplified Tool and Equipment Management, users will also have a central place to take inventory of their impact wrench and all other tools and equipment, and keep detailed records of all inventory to easily build a budget and manage spend.

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. This new tool is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool products.
