I manage a small casual restaurant, so I'm basically an on-call plumber whenever one of our drains need unclogging. Bought the M12 Cordless Snake Drain to replace a cheap drain auger w/drill attachment that got kinked very badly and was a pain to use. I've used the Milwaukee for two drains already and it has been easy to use and cleared the clogs with ease. Cordless means quicker setup and no power cords running across the floor that could be a tripping hazard in the kitchen. Battery life is good (did two drains and only went down 1 LED light out of 4 LEDs, had plenty of power to snake more drains). The outer casing that covers the drum protects it from rubbing and slapping against drain pipes and parts of your body. The locking mechanism is easy to use (pull in to lock and pull out to unlock). The cable is a bit thicker which resists kinking and helps it fight through tough clogs. Best feature of this Snake Drain is how easily you can clean the cable and drum. You remove 4 screws and out pops the drum and cable together. Drum has a wide enough opening to pour hot water in to clean out all the drain sediment that could cause rust and corrosion on the cable. Quick, easy, and not too messy. Then you let it dry and spray some lubricant on the cable to prevent it from rusting. Should last awhile if the cable and drum are cleaned and maintained properly. Rather than going through one or two cheaper drain snakes every year in our kitchen, the Milwaukee Snake Drain will definitely lasts us for years.

    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!

    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

    I wanted an affordable auger since I might use it less than once a year. Battery operated, good length. This is the best option I could find.

    My basement drains get plugged every year. I would pay $350-$450 for a professional to come out and snake it. It took two passes and the Milwaukee M12 cleared them for a fraction of the cost! I am very happy with this drain cleaning kit. I was surprised of how powerful the battery operated auger was. I also like the fact that everything is stored neatly in the bucket. So happy with this purchase.

    No extra bits.
    I just bought this today in a rush assuming for the price it would come with extra bits. Well it only came with the bulb head and could not get past a tenants kitchen sink drain clog. I was going to buy a brasscraft but it is corded and I have many 12V and 18v Milwaukee tools so I bought this. Will be returning tomorrow, hopefully they will come out with a head so you can change tips. This is nothing more than a regular $30 auger that has a bulb you can hook up to your drill. Different heads I will buy again.

      The cable doesn't advance or reverse when the trigger is pressed. I have to do it manually.
