Milwaukee pump dies for no reason

This 18v milwaukee pump is so handy, but why add a bunch of electronics?

      @Matthew C M12 doesn't have any balance circuits built into the battery, only a sense lead for a thermistor for over temp. All cutoff is controlled by the tool. Balancing is performed by the charger using two of the three extra contacts and the battery positive. M18 has balancing, temperature sensing, and over current sensing built into the battery module, however to lower the circuit resistance, the actual cutoff mechanism is integrated into the tool. Otherwise there'd by >10 mOhm for FETs in the battery, and then that resistance again for the FETs in the tool.

    You could have put it back in the case only cost you some scrap wire, also should have left the power switch in the loop just cut the positive wire and put the switch in the loop

    Even worse when your 70k$ truck won’t run, because of a 5$ plastic part. I’m looking at a new truck, to replace my 2008gmc with 110,000k. I’ve take care of it since I bought it new, now its starting to fail because because of cumfuzer and other switch/ electric type problems. The 2021 trucks are so laiden with high tech stuff it’s frightening. This is Canada, so my trucks operate in temps from-45c to +35c. The truck will can run for years, but the computers will not and other electronics don’t. I don’t want a new truck I really like this one, but I don’t see a way around it.

I just want to see if it's actually possible

    I bought that pump about 18 month ago. I spent the rest of the time looking for a hose that doesn't collapse immediately. I always ended up using my weaker pump because it isn't as finicky over the hose used. I ordered 4 different hosees online claiming to be designed for suction...and they all collapse when hooked up to the Milwaukee. ....and then the Milwaukee died. Zero successful uses with it.

    Hey hey guys i need some help I am looking to using a compressed gas of some kind to pump water at a rate of 0.5 litres per min up to 500 feet of 6mm ID hose and up to a max height of 60 feet. I run the math I need at least 20psi to make this happen I would like to use a bottle of compressed gas, line with regular to plastic water tank with POP valve x two for safety I have pressure tested my tank 69psi held test for 24 hours while hitting tank and trying to give it a real would test But I need to use pure water to cleaning windows house hold water test avg of 500ppm I need 11 Ppm and under to be effective to I filter my own prior to filling tank and don’t want to re filter it This is a mobile unit holding up to 169 litres of water some kinda gas can hose real land brush on smell dolly Trying to keep moving parts and less equipment on dolly and less things for employees to have to trouble shoot on there own the Keep it simple stupid Saying but I not sure if nitrogen is gas is going to contaminate my water or should I be using a bladder system so the gas does not come in contact with the water I am very familiar with pressures pumps 20 or oil patch guy any help would be great hopping this is the place to find like minded gents to help a guy out google is helping so much I don’t think I know the right English language to properly search what I’m looking for Thank you cheers

    The more complicated you make the machine, the more the operator will ignore the features. Knuckleheads where I work couldn't manage elementary school level of instruction. Turn a valve and push a button to make sure the machine is working. Managements solution: Install a solenoid valve and a light. Now they have two new things to ignore and I have two new things to fix.

    I do believe that Milwaukee has the BMS installed right in the battery pack assembly itself; so no loss there! So what is the board then? I think this may be a PWM circuit to boost starting torque when that impeller sticks after sitting for a while. sort of like impedance matching. It lets the battery deliver 18ish volts at a reasonable amperage load even when the motor is locked and wanting 100 plus amps but only 2 to 3 volts for winding resistance. without it turning, there is no back EMF to let the voltage rise higher.
