Whether you like it or not (we LOVE it), technology is forcing its way onto the job sites, through the use of smart phones, tablets, and wearables. The problem is, it’s a hassle to wear work gloves and try to use your devices.
Milwaukee Tool’s new demolition work gloves will not only solve the clash of work gloves and technology, they’re also not sacrificing durability to make it happen. With reinforced fingertips, palms, and thumbs, the new gloves provide strength and grip to the most used areas of your hand. The knuckles also have a protection pad to guard against scrapes and impact. Don’t worry about comfort, either, as the gloves are made out of a breathable lining and have a mesh backing that helps wick away sweat. The backs of the gloves are also lined with terry cloth to wipe the sweat off of your face.
In order to use your touchscreen devices, Milwaukee has smartly installed a SMARTSWIPE Knuckle, which will allow your touch to be picked up by your device. It’s smart to use the knuckle, because you won’t smear up your screen with your dirty fingers.
The gloves, which will be available in February of 2016 and will be priced at $24.99

At Milwaukee’s New Product Symposium in June of 2017, the company then showed their commitment to the 12-volt platform with the announcement of the Generation 2 M12 Hammer Drill and Impact Driver. The hammer drill and impact driver were since released in January 2018 and we’ve had the opportunity to test the tools for ourselves. The drill/driver is yet to be released as of the publish date of this article.
One thing’s for sure about Milwaukee Tool, they aren’t satisfied with putting the same tools out year after year. They’re constantly improving age old classics and leading in the innovation of new tool solutions. Their latest announcement is a variation on their extremely popular line of M18 tools.
Even though we rely heavily on chalk reels to properly layout components on a job site, we often don’t consider quality when buying them. If you have frustrations with broken gears and ripped lines on your past chalk reels, then Milwaukee Tool hopes to have a solution for you.

It may seem a little crazy to be talking about needing heated gear in the middle of August, but cold weather will be here before we know it. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the schedules get any longer, so you need to find a way to stay productive by staying warm.
Construction companies spend thousands and thousands of dollars each year on tools, but many of them are lost, damaged, or mismanaged, leading to even more money being spent on replacements or loss of time labor time searching for the necessary tools. Tools are so integral to a project being on time and under budget, but it’s extremely difficult to manage a large inventory that’s constantly moving. Find out how Milwaukee aims to change this...
Just last week, Milwaukee released an industry-first cordless braking grinder as part of their M18 FUEL series to market and they’ve now expanded that to include drilling and driving products.
Cordless power tools, revered for their mobility, are getting more powerful and useful in commercial settings every day, due to advancing technology. The gap is quickly closing with regards to power and useful life between corded tools and their cordless counterparts. Cordless tools also come with the added benefit of reducing trip and falls, as there’s no electrical cord laying on the job site.
