Milwaukee M18 Planer Delivers Superior Depth Control 2623-21

M18 cordless planer

As Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its reach in the M18 cordless category tools like the cordless planer are going to be added to the mix. While a cordless planer is never going to be a big seller there are definitely some pros out that can’t wait for this one to launch in October. By going cordless this becomes a very handy tool for remodelers and carpenters especially when working in older homes. The M18 kit with 1 battery 2623-21 ($299) and bare tool 2623-20 ($199) should be available soon.

This tool is pretty basic, you’re not going to find a FUEL brushless motors inside and the kit only comes with the basic M18 3.0Ah XC battery. There really shouldn’t be a need for a ton of power or extended runtime with a cordless planer as this is really more intended as a fix in a pinch sort of tool. Our good friend Rob from Concord Carpenter had very positive feedback about it at the media event (his short video below).

Certainly we wouldn’t expect any furniture builders or craftsmen to trade in their hand planers for this cordless tools, nor do we thing Milwaukee has any big ideas these are going to fly off the shelves at the home centers. It is very positive to see a continued growth into new areas and with such a large base of M18 batteries in the market every new niche tool will probably find a fan base.

For all the Milwaukee Cordless Tools visit Ohio Power Tool, they are always more than happy to help you find the right tool for the job. For additional info on the Milwaukee M18 Planer 2623-21 read the full Milwaukee press info below.
