‘“In this competitive market, plumbers and mechanical contractors continue to gravitate toward press connections to enhance productivity and profitability as the technology saves time, provides more consistent connections, and has the ability to work on a wet system,” says Paige Bovard, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “With the addition of the new jaws and rings, compatible with the M18™ Force Logic Press Tool, Milwaukee is proud to offer the broadest press solution available in the lightest overall package, with the best access around installed pipes in the market”

Milwaukee’s M18™ Black Iron Press Jaws can be used to connect ½”- 1” Schedule 5-40 Black Iron Pipe, a material that can significantly lower the overall cost of install. When used in conjunction with the M18™ Force Logic™ Press Tool, they can easily be opened using just one thumb, delivering the only system on the market that is optimized for one-handed operation.

Milwaukee’s M18™ Black Iron Press Rings can be used for up to 2” Schedule 5-40 Black Iron Pipe, and feature a unique dual-pivot design to provide superior close quarter access when working near walls and between installed pipes. The rings are up to 30% lighter than the leading competitor, which combined with the lightest tool on the market, reduces user fatigue in overhead applications.

The expansion of the Force Logic™ Press tool line is an example of Milwaukee’s unwavering commitment to deliver innovative solutions that help Plumbers and Mechanical Contractors improve productivity throughout their day. Milwaukee® offers the most complete press system on the market, and the only cordless solution that gives the user the option to cut, fasten, and connect on one battery platform.

*The M18™ Force Logic™ Press Tool is the smallest, lightest and most intelligent full size press tool in the market today. Featuring a one-handed, in-line design, the M18™ Force Logic™ Press Tool is not only the most ergonomic solution for navigating around installed pipes, but also delivers the highest level of press accuracy and reliability available on the market.
