Milwaukee® Introduces the First Drain Snake with a Brushless Motor and CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System

Aug 31, 2017 - MILWAUKEE, WI

 

By harnessing the power, performance, and run-time delivered through M18 FUEL™ technology*, Milwaukee introduces the M18 FUEL™ Drain Snake with CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System. The new solution represents the next level in performance for handheld machines. With 2X more power than corded, it boasts a maximum power to clear 50’ down the line, and features the CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System – the only automatic feed system that allows users to select and maintain a desired feed speed.

 

            “When we first made our introduction into the drain cleaning industry with the M12™ Drain Snake, we set out to identify and solve frequent frustrations plumbers and facility maintenance crews have had with other tools that have dominated the market in years past. The simple cordless setup of the M12™ Drain Snake freed these users from wrestling with cords, searching for outlets, and gave peace of mind from not having to drag an electric cord across free-standing water – providing them with tremendous productivity to tackle more service calls,” said Jacqueline Beierle, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Building off the success of this M12™ unit, we’re now setting the bar even higher with our revolutionary M18 FUEL™ technology to put even more power and control into the hands of users who encounter the toughest clogs.”

 

The new M18 FUEL™ Drain Snake with CABLE-DRIVE™ combines three exclusive innovations - the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence, and REDLITHIUM™ battery pack. The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor provides more clearing power than corded competitors for jobs through 3” drain lines, and significantly more run-time than any cordless competitor. REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence ensures maximum performance under load and improves control throughout the entire process. The REDLITHIUM™ battery pack powers through multiple jobs on a single charge, delivering cordless power, mobility, and safety to the drain cleaning industry.

 

With the only automatic feed system that allows users unparalleled feed speed control, the CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System maintains the selected feed speed, and its twist lock design auto-adjusts to all compatible cable sizes for the best cable grip when feeding and working the clog. A fully enclosed drum ensures the best protection and containment of the mess.

 

Milwaukee’s POWERSTATE™ Brushless motor also improves the motor life of the tool by up to 10X the competition. A combination of no wearable components and superior durability means users will have to service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership.

 

The new M18 FUEL™ Drain Snake with CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 150 power tool products.

 

Milwaukee Tool is committed to providing drain cleaning professionals with the most portable and versatile drain cleaning solutions. The company is dedicated to continuing investments in technology to build solutions from the ground-up that provide these users with an easier way to get on and off the job, with less mess, so they can service more calls.
