Introducing the New Milwaukee M18 FUEL Cordless Tools... Designed to Outperform

You may have already heard about the new Milwaukee M18 Fuel cordless tools. The first batch of these innovative tools launch on March 1st, 2012 from Milwaukee Electric Tool and with great excitement and anticipation, we are pleased to share some pieces of information for the M18 FUEL Drill and M18 FUEL Hammer Drill launch.   Being a new breed of tool, these products are truly "Driven To Outperform".

While being 1.4" shorter than the closest competitor and having up to 725 in-lbs of torque, M18™ FUEL™ delivers 10X LONGER LIFE, up to 25% more POWER and up to 50% more RUN-TIME than competitive 18V products.   This industry leading performance is made possible by combining the world's best technology in a way that only M18™ FUEL™ can.  This technology is highlighted by REDLITHIUM™ battery technology, Milwaukee's own POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor and REDLINK™ Plus Intelligence.

Festool PLANEX Drywall Sander launches on March 1!

Drywall sanding is known to be a messy, labor intensive task. Festool has once again come up with the ultimate solution: the new Festool PLANEX drywall sander. The PLANEX will revolutionize the way you sand drywall and plaster with its modular design, exceptional dust collection, robust built quality, great ergonomics and quick return on investment. 

Prior to this launch, the best option for drywall contractors has been the Porter Cable Drywall Sander.  The 7800 is still a great option, but no longer the premier choice in this tool category.

The Festool PLANEX Drywall Sander is a virtually dust-free drywall sanding solution when coupled with Festool's CT36 AutoClean Dust Extractor. Its longer lasting, less expensive sanding abrasives reduce operating costs and total cost of ownership. A modular design allows the unit to be collapsed in size for spaces ranging from hallways to full rooms to high ceilings. Likewise, the PLANEX can be extended for high walls and ceilings. This tool is made in Germany, and with a robust design guarantees years of reliable service backed by a three year warranty.
