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

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

    dont waste your money
    Bought this snake for the drop head feature. After first snaking the cable snapped. Wrote milwaukee and never got a replacement, Do not buy. General wire cables are much better. Review from a plumber whos been doing this for over 30yrs.

      Very disappointed with this auger cable. The drop head is not properly segued into the cable itself. After I put this replacement cable into my machine, I was holding the bulb head firmly with my left hand while pressing the machine trigger lightly with my right hand. To my disappointment, the bulb head separated from the rest of the cable. Pleas be warned, do not buy this cable. You'll end up with more work trying to retrieve the bulb head.

          One and done
          Should have read the reviews. First time I sent this down a laundry stand pipe. The drop head came off the cable. Looks to be crimped on? I’m a licensed Plumber who owns almost everthing Milwaukee makes. This is a complete fail! I will be returning.
