New Line of Accessories Engineered Specifically for Linemen

utility supplies Milwaukee Tool

Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver innovation for power utility professionals with the new Shockwave Lineman’s Accessories, including impact auger bits, 3-in-1 distribution and transmission utility sockets, and a 7/16 in. hex to 1/2 in. square impact socket adapter. Engineered specifically for the challenges of the construction and maintenance of utility lines, the new accessories are cited to offer superior speed, durability and efficiency.

Working in all weather conditions both on the ground and in the air, linemen face a unique set of challenges different from many other professionals. Recent innovation in accessories for drilling and fastening into wood or steel utility poles has been limited at best, it’s reported, and the new line of Shockwave Lineman’s Accessories provide a more reliable and fast way to work, as well as the durability benefits of Milwaukee’s Shockwave technology– the ability to absorb peak torque and prevent breaking.

Engineered for the power utility lineman to drill cleaner, faster holes in a utility pole, the Shockwave Lineman’s impact auger bits feature a single spur design that scores the hole for a cleaner finish. An aggressive feed screw and cutting edge pull the bit through the material for faster drilling, while the optimized wide flute geometry ejects chips faster. A reinforced anti-friction PTFE coating makes for overall smoother drilling and removal of the auger.
