Milwaukee MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine MXF512-2XC – Cordless
Pipe threading machines have historically been corded units. This means the user would need to park the unit near a power source. This may limit the user as they’d have to make trips back and forth. Milwaukee’s pipe threader is battery powered meaning you can work anywhere it’s convenient for you! True Ridgid’s cordless pipe threader was announced prior to Milwaukee’s. However if my understanding is correct, the Ridgid is a handheld model while this is the entire machine setup. Like comparing a circular saw to a table saw.
While Milwaukee’s M18 batteries are widely popular, this pipe threader runs on their big chungus MX FUEL batteries which pack in more power and capacity.
This machine can do more than thread pipe. It can also cut, ream, and groove pipe making it a 4 in 1 tool.
Milwaukee MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine MXF512-2XC – Features
This machine allows users to thread up to 2″ black iron pipe, stainless steel, rigid metal conduit (RMC), and more. This machine comes equipped with the new Milwaukee NPT pipe threading die head that features micro-adjust. They say this allows for the easiest, most controlled die adjustments and the auto release mechanism controls the thread length.
This machine is compatible with Milwaukee’s new line of universal pipe threading dies as well as other brands universal style dies.
It has a self-contained oil reservoir. This is said to eliminate the need to move messy bucket oilers that are separate from the machine.
The unit has onboard controls, battery fuel gauge, and ONE-KEY functionality.
The included built in wheeled cart collapses and folds up for storage. And as shown above allows to stand up on its side for a smaller footprint when stored. Gas springs assist the user to bring the machine up for working height when unfolding.
Milwaukee MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine MXF512-2XC – Runtime
With its included XC406 battery pack, it can deliver up to 140 cut, reamed, and threaded 3/4″ pipe ends per pack. Milwaukee says this is good for all day runtime.

Milwaukee MX FUEL Pipe Threading Machine MXF512-2XC – Pricing & Availability
We can expect this pipe threader to launch in April 2023. It wont be cheap as other pipe threading machines are, I can tell you that. It will be priced at $6,999.99. This price makes it in-line with other pipe threader machines from Ridgid, however Milwaukee’s is not only cordless cut includes a battery and charger so it works out of the box.
