Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands their M12™ and M18™ Lithium-Ion systems with the introduction of the industry's fastest ProPEX installation tools with auto-rotating ProPEX Expansion Heads. Designed for easy one-handed use, the M12™ and M18™ ProPEX Expansion tools allow users to install Uponor ProPEX® fittings up to four times faster, and are compatible with over 25 tools on their respective battery platforms for added utility and value. This much anticipated product launch follows the April 2010 announcement of a new partnership with Uponor to deliver increased productivity to plumbing and heating professionals by developing a comprehensive solution for installing ProPEX.
Until now, contractors using the hand tools would be required to manoeuvre and expand the Uponor ProPEX® tube while rotating the head segments slightly, all at the same time, which can be awkward in tight spaces on the job site. Milwaukee's new auto-rotating head and continuous expansion design significantly increases productivity by delivering a fast and accurate method for installing ProPEX
Inspired by Uponor's ProPEX® innovation and constructed with legendary Milwaukee® durability, the new tools are built with all-metal gears and an integrated metal frame to withstand even the toughest jobsite conditions. Each tool kit will come _with three commonly used accessory heads: The M12™ tool kit will include 16mm, 20mm and 25mm, while the M18™ tool kit will include 20mm, 25mm and 32mm The full line of accessory heads will also be sold separately: The M12™ tool will accept 12mm up to 25mm and the M18™ tool will accept 12mm up to 32mm
Among the first products powered by REDLITHIUM-ION™ battery technology, the new expansion tools will deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time for the professional tradesman. With constant innovation in Lithium-Ion and plans to grow the M12™ and M18™ cordless platform in the future, MILWAUKEE® continues to expand its leadership position in cordless.
