“Milwaukee Tool revolutionized the professional power tool market when we first created the 12V sub-compact space with the introduction of the M12™ system. We set the industry benchmark even higher when we launched our M12 FUEL™ drilling and driving solutions in 2013, and we have remained the leader in sub-compact system performance. Ever since, we’ve continued to remain on the forefront of incredible technology advancements that have ultimately reshaped users’ expectations of cordless power tool capabilities,” said Cole Conrad, Director of Product Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “By pairing our newest cordless technologies with design features born from our user-driven research, we’re setting the industry standard once again with our newest generation of M12™ Drilling and Fastening products, designed to provide users with power and portability like they’ve never experienced before with a sub-compact solution!”
