Milwaukee Tools is adding to their already stout shop storage catalog with three new heavy duty options. Way back in 2015 we saw the first entry into Milwaukee’s shop toolbox lineup with the 46″ steel storage chest, see that here. Today we learned about two new mobile workbenches and a new 56″ high capacity steel storage chest. Here are all the details we have at this time, if possible we will share reviews in the coming months.

40″ Stainless Steel Top Mobile Work Bench

40” Mobile Work Bench

Available with either a wood or stainless steel top, the new 40” Mobile Work Bench is built with heavy duty 18-gauge steel, a reinforced frame, and 5” industrial casters for ultimate durability. The work bench’s 6 drawers include a 100lb soft close feature, a large bottom drawer, and a total weight capacity of 1,800 lbs. For added utility, the work bench also features tool organizers, a bolt-on utility shelf, a built-in power center for instant access to power.

56″ Steel storage Cabinet & Chest

56” High Capacity Steel Storage Cabinet & Chest

The new 56” High Capacity Steel Storage Cabinet & Chest is built with heavy duty 18-gauge steel, a reinforced frame, and 6” industrial casters for ultimate durability. The Storage Cabinet & Chest’s 18 drawers include 150lb soft close slides, two large bottom drawers, and a total weight capacity of 3,000 lbs. These drawers are also deeper than Milwaukee’s other steel storage options, with a peak depth of 22” for additional storage space. For added utility, the work bench also features tool holders, a folding utility shelf, a built-in power center for instant access to power, and USB ports. Unique to this unit is an electronic lock for secure storage of tools without the hassle of a key.

Both units will be available at select distributors in January.

The General Pipe Cleaners Flood-Guard operates like a check valve to seal off water back- up caused by overloaded sewers. Water flows normally through the drain until the sewer begins to back up. Then the Flood- Guard float rises to seal off the drain opening until the water recedes.

A screwdriver and a couple of minutes are all you need to install a Flood-Guard. Once in place, it can prevent property damage and a very messy clean-up job.

For extreme, extended pressure (for instance, where home- made seals have popped out of the line,) we recommend our standpipe models. The 4″ Standpipe Flood-Guard is threaded to receive 1-1/2″ IPS pipe. On the 3″ model, the pipe is slipped through the rubber gasket before the screws are fully tightened.

Gaskets are made of molded rubber, and all metal parts are plated or stainless steel.

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce that it’s taking the performance of its new M18 FUEL™* Hammer Drill, Drill/Driver, and Impact Driver to the next level with the addition of ONE-KEY™. Through a ground-up redesign of the motor, mechanical, and electrical components of these core tools, these drilling and fastening solutions achieve 60% more power, are up to 2X faster, and are the most compact-sized solutions on the market. These newest additions include ONE-KEY™** functionality so users can also easily customize, track, and manage the tools through the app on their mobile device. Accessible within the app are a range of new features such as Anti-Kickback technology and a self-tapping screw mode that automatically shuts the tool off once a screw is seated.

“This summer we achieved the next breakthrough in drilling and fastening technology when we introduced the newest M18 FUEL™ Hammer Drill, Drill/Driver, and Impact Driver. These solutions feature a smaller yet powerful motor, more efficient electronics, and unmatched mechanical design that greatly reduces their size,” said Cole Conrad, Director of Product Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “As advancements in technology have grown, so have the needs of many users for increased control over their tools’ performance. By launching versions of our new M18 FUEL™ drilling and fastening solutions with ONE-KEY™ capability, we’re providing these users with the ability to completely customize these tools for better control over power, speed, and consistency – as well as the ability to easily track and manage them in their inventory.”

ACME Tools Through ONE-KEY™, users can unlock an array of customization, tracking, and tool management functions.

ONE-KEY™ Tool Customization gives users access to a range of common task presets and features including Anti-Kickback and an improved Self-Tapping Screw Mode:

  • Anti-Kickback Technology – Both the ONE-KEY™ enabled M18 FUEL™ Hammer Drill and Drill/Driver include this feature. The mode gives users increased control in bind-up situations, and they can adjust the sensitivity of the mode based on the application at hand. This provides users with more versatility and avoids the nuisance of dealing with shut-downs during certain applications. Additionally, users can choose to turn this mode on/off or adjust sensitivity depending on the job.
  • Improved Self-Tapping Screw Mode – The ONE-KEY™ enabled M18 FUEL™ Impact Driver features the ability for users to select the steel gauge, screw length, diameter and head. Once set, the tool will automatically shut off once the screw is seated to reduce stripping of fasteners and damage to material.

Users can set their preferred task controls and, with the touch of a button on the tool, easily switch between saved tasks so each application is done with the most accurate and productive settings. Once the tool is set, a mobile device is no longer needed. Users can also access available setups based on common applications and materials.

The ONE-KEY™ Integrated Tool Tracking functionality allows users to identify where and when their tools were last seen. Records and locations will update when any device with the ONE-KEY™ app comes within 100ft of the tools, allowing users to quickly pinpoint missing tools. Integrated Tool Security provides an extra layer of protection by allowing users to lock out their tools to prevent theft and tampering. With Simplified Tool and Equipment Management, users also have a central place to take inventory of their tools and all other tools and equipment and keep detailed records of all inventory to easily build a budget and manage spend.

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 new M18 FUEL™ 1/2″ Hammer Drill, 1/2” Drill/Driver, and 1/4″ Hex Impact Driver w/ ONE-KEY™  are part of the M18™ System, now offering more than 175 power tool products, and are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
