Installation tools are easy to use

Milwaukee Electric Tool introduces ProPEX installation tools.

Milwaukee, December 10, 2010—Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. expands their M12 and M18 Lithium-Ion systems with the introduction of the fast ProPEX installation tools with auto-rotating ProPEX Expansion Heads.

Designed for easy one-handed use, the M12 and M18 ProPEX Expansion tools allow users to install Uponor ProPEX fittings up to four times faster, and are compatible with over 25 tools on their respective battery platforms for added utility and value. This much anticipated product launch follows the April 2010 announcement of a new partnership with Uponor to deliver increased productivity to plumbing and heating professionals by developing a comprehensive solution for installing ProPEX.

“Feedback from ProPEX installers was to improve their current installation tool(s). Until now, contractors using the hand tool would be required to maneuver and expand the tube while rotating the head segments slightly, all at the same time. You can tell this would be awkward, especially in tight quarters,” said Mark Senske, senior product manager for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. “Milwaukee’s new auto-rotating head and continuous expansion design significantly increases productivity by delivering a fast and accurate method for installing ProPEX.”
