Milwaukee® Creates MegaPress XL® Compatible Jaws & Rings for the Industry’s Most Versatile Press Tool
MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the newest addition to its groundbreaking FORCE LOGIC™* line of press solutions. The 2-1/2” – 4” IPS XL Ring Kit fits directly in the M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ Long Throw Press Tools and gives it the ability to press Viega® MegaPress XL® Fittings** without the use of cumbersome tool extensions, while vastly expanding the range of applications the tool can accomplish.
Furthermore, this combination of rings and tool is the only solution that allows the user to connect these fittings in one cycle, and is over 20% lighter than other options on the market.
“This tool can tackle the broadest range of materials and pipe sizes. With the addition of these jaws mechanical contractors can now make controlled, flameless connections on 2-1/2” – 4” Schedule 10 to Schedule 40 Black Iron Pipe with the very same tool they use for pressing copper, PEX, and stainless-steel. In short, we’ve just reset the standard for productivity in large steel pipe installation,” said Alex Boll, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.
The tool’s adjustable stroke length delivers optimized cycle time with minimal impact on its overall weight. In addition, its in-line design and 180-degree rotating head offers unrivaled access in tight spaces and for navigating around installed pipes.
The most intelligent extended stroke press tool on the market, the M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ Long Throw Press Tool delivers the industry’s longest calibration interval at 50,000 cycles and offers piece of mind, even on the most critical jobs. A pre-press battery check prevents the user from starting a press the tool cannot complete, while Auto-Cycle ensures a full press every time and indicates to the user via a green light that the connection is complete.
Powered by Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ batteries, the M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ Long Throw Press Tool is fully compatible with all jaws and rings compatible with the M18 FORCE LOGIC™ Press Tool, as well as the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 180 power tool products.
* FORCE LOGIC™ is engineered to not only improve upon, but fundamentally change the way high-force tools are used in the field. Through thoughtful design focused on workflow, each tool simplifies a complicated process to deliver the best user experience of its kind and the smartest way to work.
