M18 Concrete Sprayer

Milwaukee M18 Switch Tank Backpack Sprayers

Another huge launch from Milwaukee Tool this week, stepping into a new category with a ton of applications for concrete and landscape professionals. Shocking to us this and other huge launches are all coming out before the big #NPS19 event which leads us to ask, what is bigger than these are they saving to launch at the event? This M18 Switch Tank System really is going to be a game changer and has a ton of very smart features. Of course being on one of the most popular battery platforms is a huge advantage over anything out now but they did some very smart things here including building the tanks & hoses to be completely self-contained so there is no chance of mixing chemicals anywhere in the tank, pump, hose or wand.

Basically there is one M18 Switch Tank Base and 3 tank options (pesticide, concrete chemical, water supply) depending on which tank you want first you’re looking at $399-$439 for the kit which includes 1x 3.0Ah battery (enough charge for 12 tanks). From there additional tanks are $149-$164 so it’s very easy to keep everything totally separate. Many of the Kits will be launching early March, Pre-Sale up on Ohio Power Tool M18 Tools page starting February 1st if not sooner.

With a big push for OSHA Silica Dust Safety Compliance there are still many egregious violators out there specifically doing concrete cutting with 14” gas saws. These are hard to fully contain the silica dust with vacuum solutions, although dustless shroud are available, the best solution continues to be water. We really think this M18 solution could be wildly popular if even a fraction of crews decided to really get OSHA compliant when using one of these saws. This solution is way ahead of the traditional hand pump water tanks like Milwaukee 49-76-0055 which most people despise for a number of reasons.

M18 Concrete Sprayer

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool is once again delivering unrivaled productivity to the professional trades with the introduction of the industry’s first interchangeable tank solution, the M18™ SWITCH TANK™ Interchangeable Sprayer and Water Supply System. Core to the new system is the M18™ SWITCH TANK™ Powered Base, which provides power to three different interchangeable tanks: a 4-Gallon Pesticide Sprayer, 4-Gallon Water Supply, and 4-Gallon Concrete Sprayer. The M18™ SWITCH TANK™ Interchangeable Sprayer and Water Supply System delivers instant, constant, and adjustable pressure with no manual pumping, and users can easily add on or replace any of the compatible tanks.

“As leaders in cordless technology, our goal is to create solutions that completely disrupt the way work gets done to make users more productive. The M18™ SWITCH TANK™ System is a perfect example of this passion at work. Through its unique interchangeable tank system design, users can add on additional tank assemblies to eliminate cross-chemical contamination. This also gives them the ability to simply replace the tank only versus the entire sprayer or water supply, delivering lower cost of ownership across the board. Finally, this entire System is powered by M18™ REDLITHIUM™ Batteries and REDLINK™ Intelligence to provide the performance, run-time, and capability demanded by users without the need to manually pump.” – Andrew Lentz, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool

The Powered Base includes the motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery compartment, and REDLINK™ electronics, while the interchangeable Tank Assembly includes its pump, hose, and respective accessories.
