Will it work on urials without removing from wall?

Asked by: JC65maint
It may, depending on the trap way. I'd suggest trying it before removing the urinal and if it will pass through the trap that will save some labor. The snake is very flexible.

will this except different tools for the cable like the root cutter head.

will this except different tools for the cable like the root cutter head.
Asked by: Harrys
No, it has a fixed spiral head. You would need to replace the cable with one that accepts changeable heads. Please contact Milwaukee for available options.

Will this work on a floor drain on basement floor

Asked by: sab
Yes, it will work for a basement floor drain as long as the obstruction is within 25'. For larger obstructions such as tree roots you will need a commercial machine and cable that is capable of cutting through.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Drain Snake Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best handheld drain snake I have to admit I was a little skeptical about buying this tool. I've bought Milwaukee tools in the past but never a drain snake. Light weight, easy as can be to use. Being a plumber doing service everyday I highly recommend this to anyone. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good We have only had a chance to use it a couple times. Both times it worked flawlessly. Not enough time to determine long term reliability. Overall from what my tech has told me it's a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Milwaukee drain snake Don't like it, at first I thought it was broken but it doesn't do what I expected. Generally I like Milwaukee but unhappy with this purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Unclogged the hair out of my shower drain. Pretty easy to use. I don't think I'll ever need to call a plumber to snake my drains again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clogs have met their match! One of the many great aspects of the Milwaukee cordless line is that not only do they offer all of the standard tools that you'd expect - a ton of them, I might add - but also so many specialized ones, such as this drain snake, offering convenient solutions to specific tasks, for both the tradesman and homeowner alike. I didn't have any clogs that needed snaking right away, but I did let my plumbing buddy try it on a couple of service calls. He said that he found it to have plenty of power, and was really happy that he didn't have to worry about running an extension cord out across the floor in someone's nice home. He liked it so much, ran out and bought one shortly afterward. Odd to say, but I'm actually looking forward to having a clog at home here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Drain Snake With Milwaukee's Great Quality I love the Milwaukee M12 12-volt drain snake with all it's great features. The 12 volt power is excellent and the battery charges quickly. I really like the light that makes helps see in hard to see areas which is often the case with drain cleaning and the flat base make it nice to let the cleaner rest on the floor which gives greater control. The power switch is easy to operate and the forward/reverse switch is right there where you need it. I'd definitely recommend the M12 for the professional or homeowner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never using a hand snake again It's rare for me to get a powertool I don't think I'll use regularly. However, with a bad arm and fighting tough clogs with a hand snake I grabbed this the moment I saw it. The kit comes with everything you need to fight a tough clog. The unit itself, a float charger to keep the battery ready to go and a bucket to catch the extra water draining off the line when you're done. I charged it up and wasn't sure what to expect from the tool. Dropped the battery in, pulled the trigger and WOW it's torquey. It was hard to keep the thing from rotating! Speeds were selectable as with any drill and speed is selectable based on how hard you pull the trigger. To unlock the reel you push the plastic sleeve forward which lets you manually feed out the cord. When you find resistance, you pull it back to lock it in place and run the tool. Lucky for me, unfortunately for the review, I haven't had the need to use it yet. No family or friends have needed it and our plumbing is still clog free. However, when I do get the chance I have no doubts this will cut through the clogs with ease
