Milwaukee Drain Cleaning Expansion – M18 Fuel Switch Pack / M18 Fuel Drain Snake / M12 AirSnake

Milwaukee is making a big splash (lol get it?) when it comes to drain cleaning. Not that long ago they came out with the M12 Drain Snake and M12 Trapsnake toilet and urinal auger systems. To make sure they’re able to clean every bathroom drain near you, they’ve expanded their drain cleaning power tool lineup with 3 new drain cleaning solutions with the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Switch Pack Sectional Drum System, the M18 FUEL Drain Snake with CABLE-DRIVE Locking Feed System, the M12 AIRSNAKE Drain Clearing Air Gun, and also new Milwaukee Drain Cables with RUST GUARD. To get us better acquainted with their newest products, here’s what they have to say about their new drain cleaning lineup:

As you may already know, Milwaukee Tool has led the industry in disruptive innovation ever since we first introduced lithium-ion to power tools in 2008. Disruptive innovation is all about changing the game. We start with a thorough evaluation of the job at hand – the frustrations, needs, previous limitations – and set out to completely rethink a solution. Our goal? To solve the fundamental challenges these users face day in and day out. Until now disruptive innovation like this has been almost non-existent within the drain cleaning industry. This is an industry that has been hindered by only incremental improvements to solutions that are already too heavy, lack versatility, needlessly messy, and tethered to a cord  – a major problem for professionals within an industry that relies on mobility. Not to mention, manufacturers haven’t utilized newer technologies to bolster tool performance.

We’re intending to change all of that.

We’re disrupting the drain cleaning market, completely cutting the cord for professionals! As part of this announcement, we are introducing four new solutions which will join our current lineup of drain cleaning products, the Trapsnake™ Porcelain Auger System and M12™ Drain Snake. This is our biggest step – albeit, leap – into drain cleaning to date:

  • M18 FUEL™ SWITCH PACK™ Sectional Drum System
  • M18 FUEL™ Drain Snake with CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System
  • M12™ AIRSNAKE™ Drain Clearing Air Gun
  • Milwaukee® Drain Cables with RUST GUARD™

But lithium-ion is just the catalyst for the disruptive innovation we’re bringing to this industry. We’ve built these solutions from the ground-up to address common hurdles during applications and to provide an easier way to get on and off the job, with less mess. Now, professionals will have a full range of completely portable drain cleaning solutions for drains within buildings, allowing them to service more calls with less hassle.

From the first drain cleaning solution to combine the benefits of sectional and drum machines, to the very first air-powered drain cleaner, these new solutions represent the disruptive innovation we’re bringing to drain cleaning professionals to give them unparalleled levels of performance and productivity like they’ve never had access to before. And we’re just getting started.
