Milwaukee Tool has set a high standard in the pipe-threading process with the launch of the new M18 FUEL Compact Pipe Threader w/ ONE-KEY — delivering the lightest weight and most controlled threading experience in the industry.
A pipe threader is used to cut grooves or threads into the end of a metal pipe, similar to those found on a conventional screw and for a similar function. With its compact design, AUTOSTOP kickback control, and M18 FUEL technology, the new threader gives contractors the portability, control, and productivity they need to thread up to 1-1/4″ pipe.
“When we launched the industry’s first cordless pipe threader in 2019, it was a monumental statement of the M18 System’s capabilities and a huge step forward in job-site productivity,” said Alex Boll, director of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “Now we have leveraged the power of M18 to design the industry’s lightest cordless solution, optimized for jobs with several smaller pipe size connections, reducing the strain on the contractor and unlocking productivity.”
Up to 40% lighter than other cordless threading solutions, the M18 FUEL Compact Pipe Threader w/ ONE-KEY features a compact design that delivers unrivaled portability and allows contractors to thread in tight spaces. Delivering an extremely controlled threading experience, the threader comes with a support arm that not only resists the torque of threading and holds the tool steady during operation, but enables the tool to be used without a pipe stand.
The AUTOSTOP technology senses severe kickback and will automatically shut off the tool, providing enhanced safety while threading. The dual-sided die head locking interface secures the die head into the tool and, in combination with the side-grip, eliminates the need to touch the spinning die head.
Additionally, the M18 FUEL Compact Pipe Threader comes with Milwaukee’s new compact NPT Forged Aluminum die heads, ranging from 1/2″ to 1-1/4″. The die heads are forged from military grade aluminum and are up to 50% lighter, reducing the weight of the tool during transportation and creating a balanced, ergonomic solution.
As an added benefit, users can track, manage, and secure the threader from their mobile device through ONE-KEY, currently the industry’s largest Bluetooth community tracking network. If the threader is ever lost or stolen, ONE-KEY provides the ability to prevent tampering with remote lockout capability.
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 M18 FUEL Compact Pipe Threader w/ ONE-KEY is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 200 power tool solutions.
