Milwaukee® to Launch an 18V Random Orbit Sander with Corded Power & More Control

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to drive innovation within the carpentry/remodeling industry with the introduction of the new M18™ Random Orbit Sander. Capable of reaching 12,000 OPM max, the new tool delivers true corded power, allowing users to remove more material per charge.

“By leveraging our M18™ technology, we’ve developed a solution that not only delivers true corded power without the hassle of cords, but does so without sacrificing the features users have come to appreciate from their corded sanders – such as the ability to adjust the sanding speed for maximum control and a smooth finish,” said Tyson Apfelbeck, Senior Product Manager. “In our continued dedication to providing true productivity enhancements for our users, as part of the M18™ system, this tool also has the advantage of being completely compatible with the wide range of tools available on this platform that are frequently required by carpenters and remodelers.”

The M18™ Random Orbit Sander’s power translates to more material removed in less time. The 7,000 – 12,000 electronic variable speed control provides the versatility to optimize speed for material removal and finish work. The dust canister provides a durable dust containment solution, while the integrated filter allows for efficient dust filtration. For added utility, the M18™ Random Orbit Sander comes equipped with a universal hose adapter to connect to the most commonly available vacuum hose sizes. 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. This new tool is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool solutions.

Available April 2018, the new M18™ Random Orbit Sander is a testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game-changing technology.
