Drill Driver: Bluetooth Connectivity

The M18 hammer drill, drill driver and impact driver are all now available with Milwaukee’s One Key technology, which allows for Bluetooth control of tool features. In addition to fine-tuning torque and rpm of tools from a simple mobile app, the One Key system also allows for an anti-kickback feature to be used in situations where bind-ups are more common. The anti-kickback feature’s sensitivity can be adjusted to suit the application, reducing work slowdowns. Milwaukee Tool; www.milwaukeetool.com

The Cat 740GC articulated dump truck is a 40-ton-class hauler which features a retarder-control system that automatically applies the brake during pauses in the work cycle, reducing strain on the operator during long shifts.
