Product Overview

The M18 FUEL 7 in. Variable Speed Polisher is the world's first cordless full-size rotary polisher. By harnessing the power, performance and run-time of M18 FUEL technology, this tool delivers corded performance that allows users to power through the most demanding applications. At more than 1 lb. lighter than corded, and the ability to deliver total control through a variable speed dial and trigger, the new M18 FUEL Polisher frees users from the extra work, distractions, paint damage, and inconvenience caused by cords. Paired with M18 XC 5.0 batteries, the M18 FUEL Polisher can complete a full size car on 1-charge when working on moderate to good paint. The M18 FUEL Polisher is equipped with a rubber over mold front housing to protect the paint from scratches in use as well as a removable dust cover to protect the motor and electronics from wool fibers and residue. The new tool is designed to distribute more of its weight over the pad, providing natural pressure on the surface area and more.

I would recommend this product
Works very well and it’s nice not having a cord but I could not get my whole truck out of 1 battery or 3 but it was a big job. Good power and speed selection does the job well.

    My review
    Light, powerful, maneuverable and I really like not having a cord to drag around. Two plus batteries to wax and polish my JEEP but I just love the mirror finish.

      I love this polisher
      I’m a big fan of Milwaukee, have a lot of there tools and swear by them. This polisher is wicked, it’s powerful and efficient, did a two stage polish on my truck with two fully charged 5.0aH batteries. This product is worth the money, and look at that’s shine after! 10/10

        A diamond in the rough
        I purchased the polisher to refinish Corian countertops and it wasn't practical for me to use an air powered polisher in my client's kitchen due to the extra noise and I hate air hoses. The variable speed settings and the trigger mechanism works fantastic on the Milwaukee polisher. The tool is also extremely quiet making it the perfect choice since my client works from home. Like most of the tools in the Milwaukee Fuel line, I am very satisfied with the craftsmanship. I would reccommend this tool to any professional who has a use for a polisher.

          Freedom & Power
          After my previous corded polisher bit-the-dust, I began the hunt for a replacement. After an extensive search I decided to give this M18 polisher a chance. I admit I was a little skeptical regarding battery power: however, I was pleasantly surprised just how powerful this machine is especially when running a heavy compound. I found the 8.0 amp-hour battery not only provides the perfect balance but, provides enough power to polish a full size truck. We do maintenance on all of our truck and equipment. And that includes maintaining an image. The fact that this unit is cordless gives us the versatility needed to utilize it when bays are full not to mention there no cord dragging across the paint. I am very satisfied with this machine and believe it will bring us many years of good service. Two thumbs up!

            Nifty for light work, but not a 10A replacement
            I use rotary buffers for cars and for polishing airstreams. I recently had an old corded unit fail so I gave this a try. This buffer would be great for a mobile detailer or a home car enthusiast, it is great to cut the cord, but it cannot replace a 10A or 12A corded unit if you need to do some heavy work. Claiming that it has 10A power is simply untrue. The max RPM of this tool is 2000 RPM, corded units max out at 3000-3500 RPM depending on which model. When polishing a heavily oxidized Airstream I went through 2 8-amp hour and 4 6-amp hour high output batteries to polish a 3’ x 2’ patch. With the before mentioned batteries It will only run at full power for about one or 2 minutes before the battery throttles the tool back. And the batteries listed only powered the tool for 6 to 8 minutes each. 4 18v battery chargers were no where near enough to keep up with the tool in heavy use. Using a traditional Makita 10A I could polish the same area in 1/2 or 1/3 the time of this tool. I have bags and bags of m18 and m12 tools and I wanted this to work, but since I often need buffers for heavy applications This just was not strong enough for me. If you want a sweet cordless buffer for light work, this would be great, but if you want a work hoarse, this tool just isn’t there yet.

              Another great product without a cord!
              First time buffing and it was a complete on a 2009 Hummer H2. Buffer work great! Use the total of three charged batteries to complete the monster task. That includes one complete walk around with a wool pad with compound and a second-round with machine glaze and a foam pad. Excellent product, excellent buy!

                Great product no cords
                I just used this polisher last weekend to get old water spots off my windows. Worked great. Next the water spots off the paint. Highly recommend this and every Milwaukeetool.

                    Awesome product
                    This product works excellently. I've only used it with the Milwaukee branded Foam polishing/compounding and foam waxing/Finishing pads but i'm sure others will likely work with it. The adjustable speed is great, almost wish there was a setting lower than 800 rpm as it does spray everywhere. So if you intend to use it probably better to do so outside unless you prep the garage for tons of over spray as it will be a mess to clean up. However it does do an amazing job on the vehicle. Would definitely recommend the product to others, only reason i took the leap to it versus cheaper products is (NO CORD) to worry about also their battery packs work with all their products which is great.
