Do you have a job that requires the use of power tools? Has a tool problem kept you from getting the job done right or done on time? I’m sure you know of this happening to someone even if it hasn’t happened to you. A tool problem that is an annoyance for an amateur can be a disaster for a professional. The professional has a greater need for reliable tools, and also asks more from his or her tools. Unfortunately, there is no perfect solution to this problem. However, the professional who endeavors to always use Milwaukee power tools will probably not encounter it as often as those who don’t.
The Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation was founded in 1924, and has always had the goal of making the highest quality electric power tools for professionals. Their first product was the Hole Shooter, an electric drill that could be operated with one hand, a huge improvement over previous models. It was enthusiastically adopted by the Ford Motor Company, and Milwaukee Tools was off and running.
Milwaukee Tools has always focused on the needs of the professional power tool user. Of course, their tools can be used by anyone, but the work done by professionals tends to demand more from tools than does the work done by amateurs. A professional power saw is probably going to be used for more demanding jobs and to have a longer duty cycle. It will need to have more power and more robust construction. It should also be more comfortable so that it can readily be used for a long period of time.
Milwaukee Tools has been an innovator throughout its existence. They have been responsible for a number of significant breakthroughs in power tool design and capabilities. We discussed the Hole Shooter above as a major improvement. They introduced the Sawzall in 1951 as the first easy to use portable electric hacksaw. They were the first, in 2005 to start using lithium-ion batteries for cordless applications, a big step forward. They have always been leaders in the development of better power tools.
Milwaukee Tools makes equipment for a number of different fields. Electricians, plumbers, and HVAC technicians will find families of tools designed for the kind of work they do. There are also collections for general contractors and mechanical contractors.
In addition to design and manufacturing of tools, Milwaukee also supports them with their service branch. Repair and calibration services are available at many locations throughout the US. For remote locations, Milwaukee and FedEx have cooperated to create an e-Service facility that allows drop off at FedEx locations.
A worker’s time is valuable. Tools can be a significant expense, but in most cases their cost is overshadowed by the cost of the worker’s time. To make the best use of this valuable resource, always use Milwaukee power tools.
