My thoughts:

Wow, just Wow! After last years NPS event I thought Milwaukee would have a hard time making another NPS event as good or better than but they’ve outdone themselves this year. I had thought that their current M18 Fuel 10″ miter saw was maxing out what was possible on only 18V however they’ve pushed the bar with a new 12″ sliding miter saw model – impressive. Last years Gen 2 M18 Fuel circular saw was among the best however I see they were peer pressured into making a new rear handle model to fit in with the crowd – hopefully it gets even better performance to go with it’s larger body style. Keep in mind that while it may look like a “worm drive” it’s not at the battery goes where the worm drive gearing and motor would be so it’s a faux worm drive just like Makita’s and Dewalt’s models.

I’ve been asking for a 12 volt version of the Surge hydraulic driver and sure enough, this was the year for it to come out. That will definitely be my go to impact driver. Just about most of the other brands have their own cordless 18V trim routers so it was time for Milwaukee to come out with their own as an M18 Fuel model and it looks solid. A select few other pro tool brands have cordless concrete cutoff saws and now Milwaukee does too, however theirs still continues to impress as it’s on 18V while the rest are higher voltage. M12 got several new interesting tools along with a torque wrench, an installation driver with interchangeable attachment heads which is something we’ve only come to see from the UK and overseas markets however now in the USA, a new M12 Fuel die grinder and M12 Fuel extended head ratchets.

The M18 system itself got several interesting new tools to go along with the ones already mentioned such as a sewer section machine which is a massive cordless snake auger and new M18 Fuel nailers with the much awaited framing nailers in 21 and 30 degree variants and a new 18ga brad nailer. Another impressive addition is a new M18 Fuel fish tape + puller – whoa this came out of nowhere but is impressive no doubt as a cable puller is usually another tool that takes up extra space in your truck however this is a fish tape and puller all in one.

It wouldn’t be Milwaukee if they didn’t have new M12 heated gear each year and this year is no different with M12 gridiron and hydrobreak heated jackets. Going along with this years newest impact bit announcements, they’ve added new matrix shockwave carbide impact bits to their line and also have an arsenal of new safety gear including hardhats, gloves, respirators, safety glasses and safety vests with many of them also part of the wearables category.

Hand tool categories get a new Stud 25 ft tape measure with an impressive 14 foot standout thanks to a wide blade, new levels and squares and new line of fishtapes and pipe wrenches. Packout gets a ton of new storage solutions along with a new TSTAK and Toughsystem inspired Milwaukee Packout bluetooth radio and M18 charger. There’s also new packout cushions to make a Packout sectional throne, however I’m not sure if this was simply part of the event or will be a real thing. We’ll have to wait and see.

Great list, thanks for putting that together so quickly.
I think I also saw someone post about an m18 1/4” crown stapler, similar in appearance to the revised brad nailer.


Thanks for the list Javier, beats trawling through site after site.
