This week 48 Tools received a Pro Tool Innovation Award for the Milwaukee 12 volt attachment & Milwaukee Packout Attachment. A diverse panel of judges made up of contractors, construction business owners, tradesmen, and media professionals came together this year to vote on the most innovative construction and outdoor power equipment industry products in the world. As judging wrapped up for the 9th annual PTIA Awards, 2021 revealed a particularly competitive mix of tools, accessories, fasteners, and other products submitted by some of the top manufacturers from around the world. Here’s what the Pro Tool Innovation Awards judges said about the Milwaukee 12 volt attachment & Milwaukee Packout Attachment.
We’ve been digging 48 Tools battery holders since we first got them in and one of our big desires was for a way to store our M12 batteries. Now we have that option. The Milwaukee M12 holders fit onto the M18 holders (so you’ll need both) and insert connection side in so they’re able to accommodate any M12 battery form factor.
After pouring over several hundred power tools, hand tools, fasteners, products, and accessories, PTIA winners were judged and eventually chosen based on a combination of factors. These included innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, advancements in job site safety, and value. This year’s PTIA winners represent the innovation leaders in the construction industry with recognition for having best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.
This year, 89 different manufacturers and brands submitted over 470 products in dozens of categories for a chance to take home a 2021 Pro Tool Innovation Award.
“This is our 9th year hosting the PTIA Awards and we continue to be amazed at the level of innovation revealed through manufacturers’ relentless pursuit of innovation. We saw phenomenal innovation in the areas of Jobsite efficiency, safety, and productivity. Bold technology and advanced features also dominated new construction technology with advances that resulted in never-before-seen products. We continue to see increases in cordless tool run-time and battery capacity as well as smarter designs that take advantage of the latest breakthroughs in material science. While average products see incremental change, Pro Tool Innovation Award winners truly distinguish themselves in the industry and deserve particular recognition,” said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. “Business owners, builders, contractors, and tradespeople can look to the PTIA Awards to find new products that help them work more quickly and safely and create greater work efficiencies while reducing costs.”
