Milwaukee® Disrupts Manual Stapling Solutions

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool improves the copper ground wiring and fencing installation process with the launch of their M18 FUEL™ Utility Fencing Stapler and 9 Gauge Galvanized Staples. The introduction of the Utility Fencing Stapler allows for increased productivity, easier stapling, and all-day run-time on one battery.

“We’ve found many linemen and fence installers resort to using a hammer to drive staples when installing copper ground wire to a wooden utility pole, or wire fencing on a farmstead. Driving 9 Gauge staples by hand is not only time-consuming, but the manual process can be labor-intensive and puts a toll on a user’s body,” said Sean Kelley, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With our advancements in cordless nailing and stapling technology, we knew the Utility Fencing Stapler would simplify the stapling process by providing a solution that would require no intensive labor and increase productivity as a result.”

The M18 FUEL™ Utility Fencing Stapler is designed to allow linemen and fence installers to staple up to 6 times faster than when compared to installing with a hammer. The stapler simplifies the two-handed hammer stapling operation into a one-handed battery-powered task with increased maneuverability and less strain from repetitive hammering. When paired with an M18 REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT CP 3.0AH Battery, the Utility Fencing Stapler can drive up to 600 staples per charge, cutting down the time spent hammering staples.  It also includes a secondary, manual trigger lock to prevent misfires and a lanyard loop to secure the stapler when working at elevated heights. Furthermore, the utility fencing stapler features Milwaukee’s state-of-the-art Nitrogen Spring Mechanism, providing optimum power needed for driving staples into the toughest utility pole and fence posts materials.

Milwaukee also introduces the new 9 Gauge Galvanized Staples. Compatible only with the M18 FUEL™ Utility Fencing Stapler, these staples come in sizes 1-½”, 1-¾", and 2”. Their barbed and coated divergent staple legs provide superior hold in material over time, and the diamond crown design accommodates larger wire sizes and small plastic moldings. The 9 Gauge Staples include zinc-aluminum hot-dipped galvanization for increased corrosion resistance.

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. The new M18 FUEL™ Utility Fencing Stapler is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line and is a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.
