  • Conventionally, the pipe threading works with the heavy corded machine and pipe stand. It makes the pipe threading set-up difficult and time-consuming. Also, for repairing work, it requires disassembling the pipe first. Users are least possible to thread the pipe on the spot. Productivity is greatly affected.

  • M18 FUEL™ Compact Pipe Threader, delivering the lightest weight and most controlled threading experience in the industry. Up to 40% lighter than other cordless threaders, the threader features a compact design that delivers unrivaled portability and allows contractors to thread in tight spaces. With the compact design, this threader offers users the flexibility to work without the pipe stand. Users can thread the pipe on the spot, without the need to disassemble the pipe first. It turns out to increase productivity. For enhancing safety, the threader features AutoStop™ technology that senses severe kickback and automatically shuts off the tool.

  • MILWAUKEE® M18 FUEL™ Compact Pipe Threader features a compact design that delivers unrivaled portability and allows users to thread in tight spaces. this new tool provides a threading experience that’s unmatched by corded and eliminates the need for cheater bars, ropes, or pipe wrench supports. It simplifies the entire threading experience from start to finish. Moreover, one of the most common frustrations with corded threaders is over-rotation, which can lead to loss of control and potential injury. To prevent this, the threader features AutoStop™ technology that senses severe kickback and automatically shuts off the tool, therefore enhancing safety.

  • The M18 FUEL™ Compact Pipe Threader comes with Milwaukee’s new compact NPT Forged Aluminum die heads, ranging from ½" to 1-¼". The die heads are forged from military-grade aluminum and are up to 50% lighter, reducing the weight of the tool during transportation and creating a balanced, ergonomic solution during use. The dual-sided die head locking interface secures the die head into the tool and, in combination with the side-grip, eliminates the need to touch the spinning die head. Delivering the most controlled threading experience, the threader comes with a support arm that not only resists the torque of threading and holds the tool steady during operation, but enables the tool to be used without a pipe stand. As an added benefit, users can track, manage, and secure the threader from their mobile device through ONE-KEY™,** the industry’s largest Bluetooth® community tracking network. If the threader is ever lost or stolen, ONE-KEY™ provides the ability to prevent tampering with remote lockout capability.
