Cordless mixing tool

The manufacturer bills the M18 FUEL Mud Mixer with 180° Handle as the first dedicated cordless tool of its kind, designed with the performance, adaptability, and control the concrete and related trades require. Powerful enough to mix heavy compounds, from stucco to concrete, it can yield up to 15 buckets on a single battery.

By combining three exclusive innovations—Powerstate brushless motor, Redlithium battery pack, and Redlink Plus intelligence—the M18 delivers break-through power. For comfort and control, it features a 180-degree adjustable handle and eight modes of speed. Users simply need to adjust the handle to their preferred choice of 16 positions, and set to the ideal speed based on the compound mix. A variable speed dial allows users the option of assigning a speed setting and then locking it on to mix without needing to keep their finger on the trigger. The Powerstate motor combines durability and a design free of wearable components, product engineers note, meaning users will have to service their mixing tools less frequently. — Milwaukee Tool, 800-SAWDUST; www.milwaukeetool.com
