To drive innovation and sustainability, our approach centers around designing and producing tools that prioritize safety, efficiency, power, and environmental consciousness.

Network effect

Improving our planet through safe and sustainable products.

TTI’s distinctive advantage has always been our focus on developing cordless battery powered solutions and our investment in clean technology. Over the years, we have continued to look holistically at our products life cycle to integrate sustainability attributes along our value chain. When creating our product development process, we aim to mitigate product-related injuries, as well as create innovative tools that consider recyclability, repairability, and longevity. We ensure our team conducts extensive testing and evaluation of each product to ensure it meets strict safety standards. Additionally, we have a strong focus on designing tools that are not only innovative, but also considerate of the environment. Our approach simultaneously promotes product safety, while offering low emission and low noise products.

The Network Effect

One of the key elements of our cordless leadership is the value creation from the Network Effect of our battery platforms. The key features of this technology are interchangeability and compatibility, allowing end users to power their ever-expanding range of products and tools using a single battery platform. This has a substantial impact on reducing our carbon footprint by preventing waste and utilizing less materials.

Embedded in our sustainable infrastructure is our clean solution for tools, replacing gas with battery-powered options. This is what makes our products “clean tech.” In the same way replacing a gas-powered vehicle with an electric vehicle reduces the carbon footprint of a consumer, so does replacing a gas-powered tool with a battery-powered one.*

The Network Effect is strengthened every time a new product is added to any of our platforms. Each new product enhances the value of its platform and helps boost productivity for our end-users who are professionals or DIY consumers.

Cordless Leadership
For decades, TTI has been designing energy-efficient and safe products, beginning with cordless battery technology. In subsequent years, we have also developed products with low carbon emissions and reduced noise levels while in use. One of the key areas in which we continue to innovate is the conversion of users from legacy corded and gas powered products and gas-powered equivalents to cordless lithium battery technology. We are a leader in cordless innovation and are constantly striving to improve the performance of our products, as well as enhance safety and minimize environmental impact.

Reduced Emissions

Our MILWAUKEE MX FUEL platform not only provides all the power of corded and gaspowered light equipment, but also produces low emissions*. With the reduction of fumes and emissions, this platform is equipped with enhanced safety and sustainability for endusers. Harmful fumes, noise, and vibrations associated with the running of typical light equipment are reduced with this platform. This allows users to work indoors, in trenches, in tunnels, or even in mines without any gas headaches - vastly improving productivity. This system not only saves the end user time with refueling and starting up but also provides a cost savings on gas consumption and engine maintenance.

Fuel Savings

The cost of running battery-powered equipment is more cost efficient than the cost of running gas equipment, the same way an electric vehicle is more cost efficient to run than a gas-powered vehicle.

Maintenance Savings

Between fuel and maintenance, gas-powered equipment typically is more costly. These tools have numerous components that are prone to failure, such as spark plugs, fuel filters, carburetors, air filters, drive belts, and starter cords. Additionally, there are various potential issues surrounding fuel mixing for 2-stroke engines, including the risk of missing the exact ratio and forgetting to add engine oil, all of which can result in significant expenses.

Alternatively, MX FUEL is powered by a POWERSTATE brushless electric motor. The electric motors do not need a lot of maintenance, as they have very few wearable parts compared to a gas engine, there is less risk of improper use and maintenance.


Low emissions, during use, extends beyond environmental benefits. With MX FUEL being low emissions there are no limitations on where to work.


The presence of gas on a jobsite poses significant safety concerns and can consume both time and money, given the special requirements for its storage and transportation. It is never 100% safe to have highly flammable gas on the jobsite.


One of the biggest user frustrations is spending time setting up without cutting or breaking anything. Filling up a gas cut-off saw can be a time-consuming process, especially when compared to the speed and ease of inserting a battery, pressing the start button, pulling the trigger, and getting ready to cut.
