Milwaukee introduces M12 Variable Speed Polisher/Sander

Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its M12 Lithium-Ion system with the introduction of the new M12 Variable Speed Polisher/Sander. Optimized to provide the fastest and most precise detail work, the new tool performs the work of two tools in one by easily switching between polishing and sanding modes.

“As the most compact cordless polisher on the market, the M12 Polisher/Sander is the perfect complement to a full size polisher for a faster finish,” says Andrew Plowman, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “In our field research with this tool, we found that automotive detailers were saving up to 20 percent of their detail time by going over small/thin/curved surfaces with the M12 Polisher before coming back through to cover larger surfaces with a traditional full size polisher. By simply adding this step with the new Milwaukee product, the user could service another car every few days, ultimately getting a full return on their investment in less than three weeks.”

Featuring Dual Mode Control and a variable speed trigger, the M12 Polisher/Sander delivers increased user control, regardless of the application. A tool-free accessory change allows the user to quickly change between polishing and sanding accessories.

Powered by any Milwaukee M12 Lithium-Ion battery, the new tool delivers the performance professionals have come to expect from pneumatic polishers without the burden of a hose and compressor. On just one battery charge, the M12 Polisher/Sander can perform a full pass on exterior trim, which was not possible with cordless units in the past.

The new tool is also compatible with the entire M12 System, now offering over 60 cordless Lithium-Ion products. Milwaukee® is committed to the ongoing development of this platform and will continue to provide innovative solutions that offer industry leading reliability, performance and ergonomics.
