Milwaukee® Delivers the Next Generation of Right Angle Drilling for Electrical Rough-In

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver disruptive innovation with the introduction of the next generation of right angle drill performance for electrical rough-in – the M18 FUEL HOLE HAWG® Right Angle Drill. Designed from the ground up with an upgraded POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, improved REDLINK PLUS™ electronics, and REDLITHIUM™ HIGH-OUTPUT Batteries, the new M18 FUEL HOLE HAWG® has the power to provide electricians and professional tradesmen with the fastest rough-ins and lightest right angle drill in the industry.  

“Professional trades have relied on right angle drills from Milwaukee® since the introduction of the original HOLE HAWG® in the 1970s,” says Mayela Schoonover, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “When we launched our cordless HOLE HAWG® in 2014, it was the first cordless solution of its kind. As groundbreaking as that tool was, our leadership in cordless technology has progressed to a point that we can now deliver an even more powerful solution for users which offers increased capability for a full corded replacement. With this incredible power, our newest M18 FUEL HOLE HAWG® provides electricians and professional tradesmen with all the benefits of a completely cordless rough-in process without sacrificing overall size and weight.”

While the new M18 FUEL™ HOLE HAWG® looks like its predecessor, the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor has been upgraded to deliver more power in high speed applications. The tool’s REDLINK PLUS™ Electronics have also been optimized to increase power under load and increased capacity without bogging down. When equipped with Milwaukee’s M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ XC6.0 Battery, the M18 FUEL™ HOLE HAWG® can drill up to (220) 7/8” holes in SPF lumber on a single charge; increasing productivity and eliminating downtime.

In addition, the 2808 model will still feature a QUIK-LOK™ Chuck to offer keyless and more efficient one-handed bit changes for most 7/16” flat or groove shank bits commonly found on augers, self-feed bits, and hole saws. The second generation of the M18 FUEL™ Hole Hawg® Right Angle Drill is optimized for electricians, while a second generation of the M18 FUEL™ Super Hawg™, which is optimized for plumbers, was introduced in the Fall of 2019.

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 part of the M18™ System, now offering more than 200 power tool solutions.
