Milwaukee has introduced a new M12 cordless planer, designed specifically for finish carpenters and remodelers working on both finished and unfinished pieces. This compact and lightweight planer is the most powerful 12V model available, offering 14,500 RPMs and 2 cutting blades for a smooth surface finish. With a 2-inch wide shoe optimized for trimming tasks and 21 depth settings ranging from 0 to 5/64 inches, the M12 cordless planer provides versatility and precision for a variety of applications.
The planer is equipped with a lockable kickstand, dual-sided shavings port, shavings collection attachment, and universal hose adapter for efficient dust collection. It also features on-tool blade storage, a brushless motor, and an on-tool battery fuel gauge. With its compact size, the M12 cordless planer is ideal for overhead planing tasks, and its low weight (3.5 lbs) makes it easy to maneuver.
A cordless planer, like the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Planer 2524-20, is a power tool that is used to plane or shave wood to an even thickness and to create a smooth surface. It is an indispensable tool for professional finish carpenters, remodelers, and woodworkers who are working on both finished and unfinished pieces.
Typically, cordless planers are used for a variety of tasks, including smoothing rough lumber, removing layers of paint or finish, making boards thinner, straightening bowed or twisted boards, and trimming doors and window frames. Cordless planers can also be used for scribing, which is a technique used to fit boards into tight spaces, such as between cabinets and walls or in closets.
Cordless planers are ideal for use on job sites where there is no access to power outlets, or for use in situations where a corded planer would be difficult to maneuver. The Milwaukee M12 Cordless Planer 2524-20 is specifically designed to be compact and lightweight, making it a great choice for overhead planing tasks or for use in tight spaces.
For professionals looking for a powerful and versatile cordless planer, the Milwaukee M12 cordless planer 2524-20 is expected to be available for purchase in March 2023 with a price tag of $199.
