Milwaukee just announced some big news for M18 users–they will soon be releasing the brand new M18 FUEL 1/4” Blind Rivet Tool w/ ONE-KEY (2660-20), which is now the industry’s fastest cordless blind rivet tool!

Traditionally for quick riveting you would need a pneumatic solution, but Milwaukee knows that their devoted users require these speeds, so they set out to create the M18 FUEL 1/4” Blind Rivet Tool w/ ONE-KEY as the fastest cordless riveting tool on the market. Not only does this tool have speeds up to 50% faster than leading cordless competitors, but it eliminates routine tool maintenance and decreases jaw replacement costs, actually allowing for up to 3X longer life compared to pneumatic and cordless competition. The all-metal gearcase guarantees durability from drops of up to 8 ft. while the over-mold protects against corrosive materials that may exist on the jobsite. The premium steel alloy jaws last 2X longer than the leading cordless competitor, decreasing your replacement costs over time.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL 1/4" Rivet Tool features

As with almost any task, the quicker you can get it done–the better. Milwaukee knows that of course, so they set out to address the slow blind rivet installation speeds among existing tool options that decrease productivity. As the tool world moves towards cordless solutions for everything, the M18 FUEL 1/4″ Blind Rivet was designed to ensure that you can take this tool anywhere on the jobsite and don’t need to worry about maneuverability, portability, safety, or durability limitations from drops, loss of air pressure or damaged hose fittings. A rubber boot is also available as an add-on for additional protection.

Between this new M18 model and the M12 Rivet Tool solution, Milwaukee now offers a full solution for blind rivet applications and eliminates the need to use other hand tools, cordless or pneumatic solutions. Diameter capacities between the two tools range from 3/32″ – 9/32″. The expanded opportunities with the M18 FUEL 1/4″ Blind Rivet Tool offers new solutions for trailer/diesel technicians, aftermarket service techs, assembly operators, or anyone else who may who may need larger sized rivet options for aluminum, steel or stainless steel.

As part of the M18 FUEL line, this tool features Milwaukee‘s premium POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, REDLINK PLUS Intelligence and a REDLITHIUM Battery pack. This tool is also ONE-KEY compatible, allowing you to track, manage and secure it anywhere from your mobile device.

If you’ve been looking for speed & durability in a new riveting tool, this is the one for you. The 2660 lowers the cost of ownership (especially compared to operating and maintaining pneumatic solutions), increases portability & access, and removes tripping hazards by eliminating compressors and hoses.
