Product Overview

The MILWAUKEE 5/16" x 25' Inner Core Drop Head Cables w/ RUST GUARD set a new standard in the market for rust protection, maneuverability, and durability, delivering up to 3X longer life than other drain cleaning cables. Traditional drain cables will oxidize, causing fragments of steel to erode off the cable, damaging the structural integrity and can lead to rust stains on floors and carpets surrounding the jobsite. Through a proprietary plating process, our RUST GUARD plating delivers 20X more rust resistance, protecting against metal fatigue. The unique cable wind geometry provides a stronger pull force and sustains shape. The smallest diameter connecting point and a solid polymer core provide the best maneuverability through the entire drain snake cable. All Milwaukee drain cables are compatible with Milwaukee drain cleaning machines and other professional drain machines and backed by a 2-year warranty from defect or breakage.
  • Proprietary RUST GUARD Plating Process Delivers Best Protection Against Corrosion
  • Minimizes opportunities for rust stains on floors and carpets
  • Unique Heat Treating Delivers Higher Strength Steel
  • Controlled Torque Limits Breaking and Kinks
  • End of Cable Indicator: Approximately 3' from back end of cable

Hi Matt! You can easily swap out attachments on our 5/16 in. x 25 ft. Inner Core Drop Head Cable with Rust Guard (48-53-2562).

Is the drop head replacable?

First time...last time.
The first time I use this cable to unclog a tub drain I manage to clear it but when I retract my cable it comes back without the drop head. One and done. What a waist of time and money

Excellent product. The rustproofing works great. Just a little difficulty getting the head around some bends. Could be more flexible.

I've been a plumber for a while now and when I was coming up real plumbers used Ridgid tools or they were just a handyman. But like most things even the old favorites wear out. So when I needed a new cable for my sink machine I got this Milwaukee 5/16 Rustguard cable. Even when you try to keep a cable oiled and clean there are times you just can't do that and water ends up in the drum and severely rusts most cables. This one isn't like that. I appears to have a high nickel content in the cable or maybe it's just plated with something like that but even after a little neglect that would have left my old cable looking really shabby, this only looked barely tarnished. The drop head allows it to take the turns a little better IMO than a regular bulb end and the stiffness was just right not too springy and not to stiff. All in all I'm glad I got it and have already gotten another one for my second machine.
