Milwaukee Tools introduced its new cordless pipe threader at its New Product Symposium held in Milwaukee in June. It is designed to thread up to two-inch steel, stainless and black iron pipe. It uses the company’s M-18 fuel lithium-ion battery system and One-Key tool management and tracking system. It is lighter than corded threaders and a dedicated support arm can be clamped on the pipe to hold the tool stationary while threading. An integrated die head retention lock prevents unwanted die head ejection. It also features Milwaukee’s AutoStop technology, which senses severe kickback and automatically shuts the tool off.
