Milwaukee launches the M12™ Brushless 2″ Planer (2540-20), an addition to their M12™ System. The M12™ System provides trade-focused solutions that are fully compatible with M12™ REDLITHIUM™ batteries. The Brushless 2″ Planer delivers the power to plane and scribe soft hardwood in a compact, cordless design. The dual-sided shaving port allows direct shavings on either side of the tool, improving productivity. Users can make careful, accurate cuts with 21 depth settings ranging from 0 to 5/64.
The lightweight planer uses a 2″ wide shoe, the most common size for applications such as scribing and planing doors. The M12™ 2″ Brushless Planer can remove up to 5/64ths in a single pass and delivers a smooth surface finish. Users can reduce clean-up time with a shavings collection attachment and universal hose adapter to maintain a clean workspace. The battery-powered 2″ planer carries Milwaukee’s 5-year limited power tool warranty.
Milwaukee also releases 2″ Planer Blades (48-38-2005) that are designed for and compatible with the M12 Brushless 2″ Planer (2524-20). The 2″ blades are made from carbide and are double-sided to increase longevity and durability. Users can use these to replace both blades on the cutter head of the M12 Brushless 2″ Planer.
