  1. any word on the release date for the m18 sds max?

    1. Milwaukee has said first quarter 2016 but nothing official has been presented to distributors yet.

    2. I contacted Milwaukee’s customer service department and was told that the prospective release date for the 6AH and 9AH batteries was at the end of April.
      I hope this is a good estimate, I’m looking forward to using the 9AH battery on my Sawsall and circular saw.

      1. I heard a different story a few weeks ago …we are hearing sometime in the 3rd quarter, but still nothing official as of today.

  2. When is the release date of the gen2 m18 fuel impact driver. The 2753.

  3. when is the m18 cordless drywall gun released? thx!
