ROLL-ON 7200W/3600W 2.5KWH

Delivering 7200W of starting power, users experience instantaneous peak power and 3600W of continuous running power to support 2-4 operators per unit. As the first battery power supply in its class designed for the jobsite, ROLL-ON™ is equipped with two 20A GFCI duplex outlets with circuit breakers, one USB-C, and one USB-A to provide power for two 20A corded tools, or a piece of capital equipment while charging batteries and personal electronics. The pure sine wave inverter delivers a clean power output, protecting sensitive electronics.

“Milwaukee has a vision to redefine how users utilize power on a jobsite,” explains Jake Van Wormer, Group Product Manager at Milwaukee Tool. “Current power solutions on jobsites often introduce issues such as safety hassles, outlet overcrowding, or breakers tripping, ultimately impacting the amount of work users can get done. As a leader in battery technology, we have taken our foundational knowledge to design ROLL-ON™ from the ground up, with every component being purpose-built to deliver a power supply solution that drives productivity, efficiency, and safety on the job.”

ROLL-ON™ offers professionals instant set-up, and eliminates dangerous emissions, pull-starts, and engine maintenance while also reducing extension cords. Additional hassles related to temporary power, such as outlet overcrowding and wiring or electrical maintenance, are eliminated with the introduction of ROLL-ON™ to the jobsite, reducing wasted power and spend, and maximizing productivity.

With the ability to be powered anywhere, Milwaukee’s new power supply delivers versatility and productivity for the professional jobsite. Weighing 104lbs, 80lbs lighter than comparable gas generators, the ROLL-ON™ provides mobility without compromising performance. Designed to withstand tough jobsite conditions, it can be used for indoor and temporary outdoor work, eliminating emissions and providing quiet operation. Featuring 9.5-inch All-Terrain wheels and an IP54 rating, this power supply is built to withstand site conditions like dirt, dust, and water. Designed with a user-demanded feature set, Milwaukee’s new solution is fully compatible with the PACKOUT™ Modular Storage System.
