MILWAUKEE® Delivers Faster Cordless Riveting with New M18 FUEL™ Rivet Tool with ONE-KEY™

Milwaukee Tool continues to eliminate the need for pneumatics by delivering best-in-class cordless performance with the introduction of the M18 FUEL™ Rivet Tool with ONE-KEY™.


Pulls up to 900 rivets with a rivet size of 4.8 mm in aluminium or 500 rivets with a size of 6.4 mm in aluminium on a fully charged M18™ 2.0 Ah battery pack.

“Over two years ago, our M12™ Rivet Tool disrupted the market as the world’s first cordless rivet tool for the professional trades that created a viable replacement for outdated and, frankly, strenuous hand tool riveting solutions,” said Sendi Spoljaric, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “By capitalising on our M18 FUEL™ technology, we are now capable of delivering an even faster and far more productive cordless riveting solution for users to fully replace air tools.”

True to all M18 FUEL™ solutions, the new M18 FUEL™ Rivet Tool combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence. The POWERSTATE™ brushless motor delivers 20,000 N (20 kN) of pulling force for high strength blind rivets in all materials. M18™ REDLITHIUM™ batteries deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack, installing up to (900) 4.8 mm aluminium or (500) 6.4 mm aluminium blind rivets in one charge**. REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence ensures maximum performance and protects against overload, over-heating, and over-discharge.

Complete with a 3-jaw design built with premium steel alloy materials, the rivet tool jaws last longer than alternative solutions on the market to minimise downtime and deliver more work between jaw changes. The blind rivet tool is built with an all-metal gearcase, impact strength plastics, and a protective over-mold to withstand harsh shop, plant, and field environments while maintaining a lightweight feel.

As an added benefit, ONE-KEY™*** provides the ability to track, manage, and secure the rivet tool.

The rivet tool comes with a set of four retention nose pieces (4.8 mm, 6.0 mm, 6.4 mm and 7.0 mm) to hold blind rivets in place once inserted into the tool. Complete with onboard storage, the tool allows for all four retention nose pieces, as well as the wrench for switching between sizes, to be stored on the tool. For versatility, non-retention nose pieces are available separately. Also available is a 152 mm long extension allows users to install rivets in hard to reach applications.

Milwaukee Tool is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL™ Rivet Tool with ONE-KEY™ is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 190 power tool solutions.

*M18 FUEL™ is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering outstanding performance, all M18 FUEL™ products feature three MILWAUKEE®-exclusive innovations—The POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLITHIUM™ battery pack and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence hardware and software—that deliver outstanding power, run time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
